 Jacob Glick, 73, Violist, Coach and Champion of New Music

          By ALLAN KOZINN 

               NEW YORK -- Jacob Glick, a violist admired for his championship 
               of new music and his performances on the Baroque viola d'amore, 
          died on Nov. 1 at the Southwestern Vermont Medical Center in 
          Bennington. He was 73 and lived in New York and Bennington.  

          Deborah Borda, the executive director of the New York Philharmonic 
          and a former student of Glick's, said the cause was cancer.  

          Glick performed with several New York new-music groups, including the 
          Group for Contemporary Music and the Contemporary Chamber 
          Players. He was also a member of the Penn Contemporary Players at the 
          University of Pennsylvania, the Jennings String Quartet and the Silvermine 
          String Quartet. He toured regularly in the United States, Europe, Asia 
          and Australia.  

          Glick was born in Philadelphia in 1926 and studied the viola at the New 
          School of Music there, as well as at the Peabody Conservatory in 
          Baltimore and the Yale School of Music. From the start of his performing 
          career, and particularly in the 1950s and '60s, he was an advocate for 
          living composers. He took part in several important premieres, including 
          the first U.S. performances of Pierre Boulez's "Marteau sans Maitre" and 
          the world premiere of George Crumb's "Ancient Voices of Children," in 
          which he played a musical saw.  

          He also gave first performances of works by Otto Luening, Ursula 
          Mamlok, George Rochberg, John Harbison and others. Several of his 
          recordings of contemporary works remain available and are regarded as 
          classic performances.  

          Glick was also a teacher and chamber music coach. He was on the 
          faculty of Bennington College for more than 20 years, and in the 
          mid-1980s he spent a year at the Shanghai Conservatory as a visiting 
          professor of viola and chamber music, and as a conductor of the school's 
          string orchestra.  

          He is survived by his wife, Lilo Kantorowicz-Glick; two daughters, Judith 
          Bettina of Princeton, N.J., and Byaela Bodenheim of Brooklyn; and two 
          grandchildren.
