phony Orchestra Is ono of the most
pregnant Incidents ot the current sea
son. Dr. Muck was the director of
this same orchestra In 1906-07 and
the following season, but his engage
ment with the royal proprietor of the
licrlln Opera, namely, the King of
J'russn. better known to the world as
the German Emperor, compelled him
to clve up the American position and
return to tho cheerful shades of Unter
ilen Linden. Mix Fiedler came to oc
cupy the Bostonlan podium until bucIi
time as Dr. Muck could be released
from the rule of the' Iron hand.
It has been an open secret for at least
two years that he was to return, but
newsmongers wero prayerfully besought
not to publish the fact lest the very
publication might drive the Kaiser to
rescind his permission to the great mu
sician to leave Germany. That his
departure Is a dlBtlnct loss to Berlin
may be readily understood. The de
privation of the Royal Opera by his ab
sence Is precisely as great aa that
which would be experienced by the
Metropolitan Opera House If Mr. Tos
canlnt should leave It,
Dr. Muck Is In the full vigor of his
physical and Intellectual life. He waa
born In the charming city of Wurz
burg on October 22, 1859. His father,
a councillor of Bavaria, was a genuine
lover of music 'and also a musician of
fine accomplishments. He gave his
son lessons In violin and piano forte
playing, and also In stern theoretic
matters. At tho unripe age of 11 the
child was permitted to appear In public
as a pianist.
But It does not appear that anything
happened to Induce the father tj keep
the child before the world. He went
forward with the customary training of
a German youth. When he had fin
ished his gymnasium course he spent
two years In the University of Heidel
berg and next, from 1877 to 1879,
studied philosophy, classic philology
and history of music at the University
of Lelpslc. In the last named city
he also entered the conservatory, being
In the classes of E. P. Rlchter and
the father of so many musicians, Karl
Relnecko. He made his adult debut
as a pianist at a Gewandhaus concert
In February, 1880, and In the samo
year the University of Lelpslc gave
him the degree of doctor of philosophy.
He waa genuinely successful as a pian
ist, but the ambition to bo a conductor
was already stirring within him, and
ha departed from Lelpslc to become a
chorus director in the Stadt Theatre
In 1881 he became conductor of opera
at Salzburg, where he saturated himself
In the. worship of Mozart. From 1882 to
1884 he conducted the opera at Brunn
and then went to the Gratz opera for
two years. From 1886 to 1892 he was
the conductor of the German Theatre In
Prague conducted by Angelo Neumann,
the friend of Wagner and the projector
of the famous travelling Wagner thea
tre. Dr. Muck also conducted the Prague
philharmonic concerts. He went with
the Neumann travelling Wagner thea
tre to Russia, where he conducted the
performances of "Der Ring des Nibelun
gen" In St. Petersburg and Moscow In
1S8S. In his "Personal Recollections of
Wagner" Neumann wrote:
"I had sent the conductor on ahead
for careful preparatory rehearsals, and
Dr. Muck acquitted himself magnifi
cently of his task. I can safely say
that, as far as orchestra was. concerned,
our 'Nlbelungen' performances In St.
Petersburg compared most favorably
with Bayreuth Itself. Aside from Muck's
understanding of his subject he gave
himself up to the work with such gen
uine eagerness and such an unselfish de
votion to his art that he deserved the
highest praise and called for the ad
miration and appreciation of all."
In 1891, under Neumann's manage
ment, Dr. Muck conducted the first per
formances in Berlin of "Cavallerla Kus
tlcana," Weber's "Drei Plntos," as ar
ranged by Gustavo Mahler, and Peter
Cornelius's opera "The Barber of Bag
dad." which had some presentations at
the Metropolitan Opera House and
ought to be revived. But that Is an
It was at this time that the Kaiser
looked with royal favor upon Dr. Muck
and engaged him, of course through his
intendant, to conduct at the Berlin
opera. He became also conductor of the
oratorio concerts given by the opera
chorus and the concerts of the Wagner
Society. He made many excursions as
"guest" and as such directed orchestral
concerts In St. Petersburg, Moscow, Co
penhagen and Paris. He also went to
Spain to conduct court concerts by the
roynl orchestra, and had a Blmllar en
gagement In Budapest. In London he
conducted performances of the Philhar
monic Society nnd also the representa
tions of "Der Ring des Nlbelungen" at
fovent Garden. He was called to Bay
reuth In HiOl to direct the performances
of "Parsifal" and he directed them again
in 1902, 1904 and 1906 and every sum
mer since that.
It Is pretty safe to say that Dr. Muck
Is delighted to return to Boston. This
Is perhaps not ho much because he

Highbrows gather to tell the things
which ought to be, but rnther because

"ft he troubled by llio egotism of opera
Whether Dr. Muck ha ever said It or
nt. he is credited with having whis
pered nnco in tho Inmost privacy of his
domicilii that in his humble opinion the
Uoalnn Symphony Orchestra was the
rest m chest ra In the world. There are
"vn or three other men In Europe who
ave had tin- hnrdlhood to say this
'ftme thing when they have been where
"rv were suro that no Berlin reporter
mild hear them, of course no one
ttkes the trouble to say such a thing
ptcrttly in Paris, for there Jj no mortal
power which can make a Frenchman
believe that anything outside of his
country Is as good ns anything Inside
But In Germany they havo of lato
been worried. They hnve heard Caruso
fairly .often and they have given up
uniom marlts with cheerful alacrltv
They have opened their own eyes to the
disconcerting fnct that an appreciable
numb-T of their best opera singers are
Americans nnd that on the other hand
those who' used to be their best uro
now delighting the Inhabitants ot the
Western Hemisphere. So If It were to
leak out that so eminent an authority
as Dr. Muck had said that the Boston
Symphony was the leading orchestra
of the world the Bcrllncrs would be
Just a little worried, because they
naturally think that there cannot pos-
slbly bo anything to equal the Berlin
Philharmonic under Arthur Nlklsch.
Nevertheless one may bo reasonably
sure that when Dr. Muck took up again
tne baton to direct a eehearsal of the
gentlemen of Boston despite the fact
that he missed somo of tho old faces
and found some unfamiliar ones In front
of him his artistic soul experienced a
splendid moment. For he found that
old fountain of glorious musical tone
yet fresh and generous, and he must
havo realized that It was within his
grasp to fashion Into perfect form the
dreams of his musical Imagination.
As for the music lovers of this city
they are to bo warmly congratulated,
Nothing In deprecation of the admirable
conducting of Mr. Fiedler need bo said.
He earned and In this place he re
ceived plenty of warm praise. But It
Is an Indisputable fact that the two
greatest masters of the baton In Ger
many to-day are Nlklsch and Muck,
and it Is therefore a cause for rejoic
ing that the Hoston Symphony Orches.
tra, a truly American Institution, is
to be undei the command of this brill
iant and experienced general.
The Boston Symphony Orchestra Is
fortunate In mvny things. It Is happy,
secure and apparently perennial In its
support by the open hand of Henry L.
Hlgglnson. This man has deserved woll
of his country. He served her In war,
of early days to say that the orchestra
was never more uniform In ability
and worth than It Is now. And this
condition la due partly to the liberality
of Col. Hlggr.'isoii, The best man' In
Europe Is tho standard for every new
engagement. If fiere Is a better man
In this country and he Is available, he
Is tho man for .the poet. But condi
tions which exist here put many ex
cellent musicians out of competition
for places In the Boston orchestra.
Union musicians are nuturally not
wanted. Some years back un attempt
was made to bring the pressure of tho
musical union to lwar on the Boston
organization, but c?ol. Hlgglnson put
an end to the proceedings In a summary
manner. He declared for publication
that on the day when the Boston Sym
phony Orchestra became a union or
chestra he would disband it forever.
Nothing more was heard about unioniz
And becnusc It Is not a union orches
tra the highest results are obtainable.
The labor union principle Is radically
hostile to art It Is the worm at tho
root of musical affairs In this city. Let
us then be grateful that Boston can
send us Its free orchestra and that wo
can enjoy Its playing under the direc
tion of a man conceded to be ono of the
foremost powers In the world ot tonal
A subtle, active, penetrating Intellect
Is the chief characteristic of Dr. Muck.
To look at him one would believe that
his greatest delight might be entangling
an opponent In debate In a web of
specious sophistry and smiling a wicked
smile when too late the opponent dis
covered the trick. Perhaps the good
doctor does this sort of thing In tho
smoky retirement of the St. Botolph
Club, where the learned Thebans of Bos
ton sit In the gray atmosphere and
weave the threads of fate which they
afterward split. But those who havo
heard great orchestral compositions per
formed under Muck know that there Is
something more than cold Intellectual
analysis In his readings. There Is splen
did and communicative musical enthu
siasm. Who can forget the plaudits of
that Carnegie Hall audience which re
called him eight times after a reading
of the C minor symphony of Brahms?
Never did the grand composition sound
more vital nnd more poetic. Let us
hope that we shall hear such things
Some there are who have sat In the
gloom and silence of the sacred Fest
splelhaus at Bayreuth when Dr. Muck
conducted "Parsifal." There too one
could quickly learn that the, Mephlsto
phcllan countenance of Muck was only
a mask to disguise noble feelings. After
conducting "Parsifal" the doctor could
eat a substantial supper, which showed
him to be a man. Furthermore he could
eat another solid meal the next night
after hearing "Lohengrin" conducted by
Siegfried Wagner, and that came pretty
near to proving him to be superman.
Orchestra, for example, has a definite
mission which It Is discharging with
no little success. Mr. Arens shows
usually good Judgment In the arrange
ment of his programmes and his Intro
ductory talks are generally well planned.
But the truth must be'tnldthat Air.
Arena's concerts nre'not the' only ones
which get at tho so-called uneducated
The Philharmonic Society hns cer
tain nrraiiKements by which people, of
small means can attend certain concerts
at low prices. This Is altogether good.
But no person who goes season nfteT
season to concerts and keeps his eyes
and ears open can fall to know that
thousands of people go to various kinds
of entertainments, orchestral as well as
of other kind, without paying a cent,
And this Is the result of oversupply,
which works evil to all.
There ought to be; Just enough orches

Tho Boston .Symphony Orchestra's
personnel has undergone many changes,
but tho high level of Its excellence has
nover been permitted to sag. Indeed, It

there ought to bo a musical public
strong enough to carry tho burden of
nearly 200 concerts of music written for
orchestra. But thcro Is not. Tho atten
tion of the music lover Is not suffi
ciently concentrated. It Is diffused
among too many topics.
It Is trim that the orchestras which
nro doing whnt Is called educational
work ought not greatly to Interfero with
those which appeal to tho already culti
vated public. The People's Symphony
Mine, Sembrlch lately bewailed the ap
parently near disappearance of tho art
of bel canto. Thereupon several sing
ers who cun sing and some teachers
who can teach rose, up nnd declared
thut It was no such thing. Yet one of
these, teachers In writing n second time
on tho subject admitted that pupils
were unwilling to study long enough
to learn the art.
It Is rather amusing for Mme. Gad
wkl to rise un und combat Mme. Sem
brlch'H assertion. When sho has passed

same thing herself. If any rentier of

tho proposer Is to give 111"' same sum
for each ono that Is. Mme. Gadskl Is
to be tho umpire. Then let tho pro
poser be the umplro on Mme. Gad
ski's list, with the name conditions

at least $80 on this name. If there

singers In any hundred living opera
singers this writer has something to
The reason Is precisely that enun

pupils want to get rich quick. They do
not wish to undergo tho training ncccs
snry to enable them to sing beautifully
anything from Mozart to Wagner. They
uro satisfied when they get their voices
half placed and pick up u few rudi
mentary Ideas about enunciation and
style, They have almost no flexibility
of tone and no agility at all. They can
not sing a swell, they cannot make a
smooth diminuendo. They cannot cxe-
cuto a turn and tho simplest group
staggers them. But they can make a
lot of noise, smite Inltlul consonants
with reckless force and think they are
declaiming In tho style of the French
grand opera, and they can run all
around tho stage nnd wave their arms
nnd think they are acting ns cleverly

When these little creatures are put
to the test of the concert platform,
whero they are stripped of nil the dis

they havo really studied they add an
