Some teenage performers leapt off speakers, slid across the stage on their knees or launched guitar solos, but others stood by awkwardly, unsure of what to do besides wait their turn. It may have been an amateur night, but the audience of at least 800 screaming fans was the biggest the bands are likely to see until next year's battle.

The Ivory Trade.Joseph Horowitz.Summit.289 pages. $21.95. "The Ivory Trade" is not about cruel and unscruplous white hunters inthe sordid business of supplying elephant tusks to the world's ivory merchants.The ivory trade that Joseph Horowitz -- a former New York Times music critic and author of the much-talked about "Understanding Toscanini" -- compellingly describes can be divined from the dust-jacket photograph, a chiaroscuro view of a piano keyboard on which a pianist's tense hands grip the keys with a tarantulalike tenacity: the sometimes glorious, sometimes depressing and peril-fraught business of international piano competitions.

With his tabla, a small Indian hand drum, the boy joined in. Playing faster and faster, they kept a furious pace until the raga's end. Then, the boy "looked up at me and said, 'Man, that was great!

NEW YORK -- The Broadway musical didn't just sing and dance this season. It sang opera -- in Italian with a mega-sized cast. It danced both ballet and modern -- without a single actor speaking a word. And it told children's stories -- with a cast of five playing a forest full of woodland creatures. In short, this was a season when the Broadway musical wore a myriad of faces. Examples of these varied visages will be showcased in tonight's Tony Awards ceremony, when the competitors for best new musical will include: * Movin' Out: A dance piece choreographed by Twyla Tharp to the songs of Billy Joel.
