* .Pianist Daniel Barenr boim's manner on the po-^ dium is much like his manner offstage: brisk and very intelligent; He is a small man with black hair which grows in a straight line low on his forehead, giving him a squared-off and deceptively serious look. He walks and talks quickly, always alert, radiating energy and confidence; he can be patient when necessary but it takes work. Rehearsing an orchestra, he tends to run through a large section of a piece and then work backwards over the mistakes. Surprisinglyj for a pianist whose life is spent amid the approximations of tempered tuning, he takes a good deal of time on questions of intonation, '
Though Barenboiin does much conducting, half his engagements are as piaiiist. In New York in 1970, he will perform the complete cycle of Beethoven sonatas which he played last year in London aiid this year in Vienna.
His long-distance telephone habits cost him about $800 a month. He loves practical jokes.

* An ex-rabbinical student who has everybody in stitches with his comments on the Bible is the young comedian David Steinberg, At 26, he is the funniest new comic since, maybe. Woody Alienor Shelley Berman, He has a quick mind, a sharp tongue, a highly developed taste for fantasy, an equal zest for the absurdly real.
When he got home from doing the Dean Martin show, hiis mother sent him out for a botUe of milk. Well, it serves him right for never telling the family what he did for a living,
Steinberg's family reminds him of Yiddish and some words that ought to be Yiddish even though they aren't ("svelte").
He is the only stand-up comic around doing Bible
bits and it is obvious he knows the subject. He. improvises bits about. Lot, Esther, Joshua, Zacharian.
He does Lot's naggy wife, : ("You've gotta be aggressive with God!") and Jonahgettlhg directions froni the Lord ("Tarshesh, that's towards Sleeker").
Steinberg explains his Bible shtick: he was a pre-rabbinical student at the Hebrew Theological College in Chicago for three years, and when he started in comedy at Second City, where you are forced "to work at the top of your intelligence," theBible . was what he found.
^'No,-1 don't think it's irreverent, I hope it Isn't," he says. "Theologians like my Bible things. They know what I'm talking about."
"What I'mtryingfor mostly is truth," he explains. "That is, when it seems that I'm thinking out there, I really am thinking. It makes an audience think, tooj especially kids, who are tieating back, after all the McLuhan business, to the word."

The old woman frowned, .."I could not be expected to know that," she said thoughtfully. "This is a 1939 car and it shakes like an earthquake all the tme."
Two women were gossiping. One said: i "What I say is — give a

When rendered by Harry Grodberg, soloist of the Moscow Philharmonic .Society, the concerts of Bach's organ music, are always a thumping success.
He gives 35 solo concerts annually in different cities of the Soviet Union. Aside from this, his performances are recorded for the gramophone, he appears with symphony orchestras, and accompanies celebrated singers.
Harry Grodberg, 39, studied music at a school in Vilnius and graduated from the Moscow Conservatory; He has been giving concerts ever since 1955, after finishing Professor Alexander Gedike's organ class and Professor Alexander Gold-enweiser's^piano class at the Conservatory. Though many of those who graduated at the same time tried to combine concert playing with teaching at a music school or college, with an eye to.teaching later at the C onservatory, Harry Grodberg already then decided to devote himself wholly to organ-playing. Organ concerts in those days could be given only in Moscow, Leningrad, Tallinn, Riga and Vilnius, for nowhere else were there suitable organs for concert playing. But Harry Grodberg saw and believed in the prospects for popularizing this art in the USSR. The concerts given by Professors Gedike and Isai Braudo (Leningrad), as w»ll , as by the Baltic region organists, Hugo Lepnurma and Peter Sipolhieks, were box-office successes. The Moscow Philharmonic Society set up a new large organ in the Tchaikovsky Concert Hall (up till then there had only been . two organs - in the Grand and Small halls of the Conservatory). A desire to hear organ music was expressed
without a careful study of Johann Sebastian Bach," he says.
Grodberg gave several concert cycles in Moscow which, supplementing one another, afforded for the first time in the Soviet Union so complete an idea of Bach's organ music. During the season of 1956-1966 he performed a cycle of five concerts, and in 1966-1967, a cycle of seven concerts. During the past season he gave a cycle of four concerts (Bach's chorales).
Sometime ago Grodberg signed a contract with the Soviet all-national recording firm of "Melodia" for the recording on stereo-records of all the organ music written by Bach. This is certain^ ly a comprehensive job that will take several years to complete. Five records of the intended 25 or 26 are ready.
Records of organ music as rendered by Grodberg have appeared in the United States and the FRG. The Angel Stereo Company put out his performance of Bach's chorale preludes for the organ and the Ariola Euradisc (FRG), his performance of old organ mus ic by Bach's predecessors.
SOVIET REVIEWS OF HARRY GRODBERG'S PERFORMANCE
The newspapers and magazines often feature reviews of Harry Grodberg's concerts. In 1961 the Izvestia which comes out in some eight million copies, inen-tioned: Grodberg among other organists in its article, . , o . "Moscow Organ Soirees",
in those towns of Russia xhe author said that "the
newspaper with acirculation of more than six million copies, noted in a review of October 7, 1967, that Grodberg's performance of the D Mmor Toccata was charged with rare expressiveness. "There was not a grain of false pathos or ostentatious phrasing."
PLANS FOR THE FUTURE
( "I am very pleased with my chosencareer in music," says Harry Grodberg. "In the Soviet Union organ music is very popular, and this is something that dannot be said of any other country. I arrived at this conclusion after talking to organists of the FRG, Britain, France and Canada duriiig their tours of the USSR. To give people esthetic pleasure and familiarize them with new organ opuses by Soviet and foreign composers is for me a real boon. Of course, it would be more wonderful still were the Soviet composers to write more for the organ. ' Lately, Grodberg gave two
"performances of the difficult organ part of Aram Kha-chaturyan's Third Symphony, as well as of two organ preludes by Alexander Pirumov. As Dmitri Kabalevsky wrote in the newspaper Sovetskaya Kultura of December 14, 1967:
"Harry Grodberg gave a splendid rendition of Pirum-bv's two preludes for the organ. This most poetic music and Grodberg's remarkable interpretation of it were worthy of each other.".

where the people had never heard the instrument played in a concert hall. Gradually, at the turn of the sixties, organs were put up in the new towns.
Grodberg has toured the country indefatigably, appearing in Minsk, Riga, Tallinn, Baku, Tbilisi, Yerevan, Tashkent, Lvov, Donetsk and Gorky, aside from Moscow and Leningrad. His programs are rich and diverse, including old organ music by Bach's predecessors Frescobaldi, Buxtehude, Pachelbel, Cor-elli and Stanley, among others.
Bach holds a place apart in Grodberg's program. .

bills were laconic, saying: 'Organ Soiree. Bach. Chorales. Harry Grodberg playing'. This was one more box-office success although it was the organist's third concert in the new season, and his . seventh organ soiree in the past two months." The article stressed that Grodberg had demonstrated the basic chorales of Bach from every side.
In the sixth issue of Muz-ikalnayaZhizn (Musical Life) for 1963, it was noted that " many lovers of organ music know and appreciate Grodberg's characteristic fea-: tures — his fine musical taste, poetic fantasy, erudir tion and intellect."

At the present time, two more young composers are writing music for the organ. Karen Khachaturyan is composing a prelude and a fugue, and Roman Ledenev, a suite. Grodberg is preparngabook entitled, "Organ Music by Soviet Composers" for publication. .
. "1 feel certain that organ playing in the Soviet Union will develop fast," says Harry Grodberg. "The numbers of Its devotees is growing
. with each passing year. At present there are upwards of 15 organ centers in the USSR. Soon organ music will be heard in four more towns where large instruments are being set up. These are Kiev, Kazan (capital of the Tatar Republic), Novosibirsk in Siberia, and Sverdlovsk in the Urals." ■;■
Harry Grodberg is married to Natalia Ozeretskov-skaya, a pianist who teaches class in a music school and assists him during his concerts and rehearsals on the organ.
Harry's father, Yakov Grodberg, lives In VilniuJs and is known as one of the best tailors of that city. Harry's older brother Grlg-bry is a practlclngphyslclan In the same city.
