HAMLISCH TO MISS `ANATOMY OF PEACE’ PARIS CONCERT

SHARE HAMLISCH TO MISS `ANATOMY OF PEACE’ PARIS CONCERT

Marvin Hamlisch will share the program with Aaron Copland, Benjamin Britten and Arthur Honegger when his "Anatomy of Peace," a 30-minute symphonic suite, is performed at Les Invalides in Paris on June 6 as part of a D-Day observance. But Hamlisch will miss the performance because of a prior commitment in California: Barbra Streisand's concert tour.

Hamlisch, who is conducting Streisand's 64-piece orchestra, described life on the road with the singer as "so far, so terrific."Yes, he said by telephone from Los Angeles, he knows all about her reputation for being a perfectionist. "But that doesn't mean she is a kvetch. Besides, I told her that two perfectionists have gotten together here."
