.NKW SIXOEKS IX T.HK CAST
Olulm Oattl-C.isiuia, the silent Im
pipjarlo of the Metropolitan Opera llous",
cloubticrs wished last night th.it lie ha.l
not If" l1'1" eight subscription perform
anrrs a week It wns the second repri
se nt. on of "Carmen" which must have
uroused this viiln yearning. The fame of
th new proiluctlon of the popular old
nork hail Bone abroad In the town an J
pfOplf had come from every direction.
The theatre was packed. Kvery seat, even
those in the rear stall boxes, was occupied,
and the standing room was crowded to
Many eager persons were turned away,
nd w it doubtless have to hear "Car
men" ller In tho season. That somo
extra tier.orin.inem of the work will havo
to be Riven teins certain. There has been
in such pronounced success for a revival
In many moons, and "Carmen" seems
l.ktly tJ tako on such n renewed
vitality as it has not enjoyed slnco Mine.
ClYfs unf'itMlleil impersonation of the
t.ile role stt the town afire.
The peiformance of last evening offered
two chances of cast for consideration.
I itead tf Mnie. Ald.i I.uerezln ltorl sang
Mlcatla, and .nste.id of Mr. Amalo
Ciarcncc Wh'.tchllt sum? Kscamltlo. Doth
proved well suited to their parts and re
ceived much applause from the audience.
Miss llori h voice Is particularly well
suited to the graceful phrases of .Ulcnela
and tlia best qualities of her tone wero
displayed last night. She was In good
xolce and sang with a freedom not found
in her recent Impersonation of .Vlml.
Doubtless there Is more than ono fort
of toreador In Spain, and It Is not cscn
till that nil Ksrmiillos should look alike
to us. Mr. WhlUlilll's did not look, sound
or behave like Mr. Amato's, but It was h
most excellent bull tighter for all that.
The music lies well for Mr. Whltehlll's
voice and his ringing of the famous
entrance song made up In delicacy of
nuance and general finish of style r
wh.u It lacked In vigor. In other parts
of the opera the barytone wns praise
worthy Escnmlllo Is In cold fact a veiy
lean part, and audiences usually exe"t
too much of its interpreter.
Little remains to be said of last eve-rl-.g's
representation. Miss Fnrrut's
Carmen showed no significant changes,
though the conviction thut she will In
time draw her lines moro llrmly remains
unshaken. Mr. Caruso's Don Jo.ic re
irated all the admirable traits which
evoked so much praise nt the previous
pertormanco. inc ueiaiis oi me oper.i
nrt again all presented with care and
Mr. Toscanlnl's admirable conducting ex
ercised supreme mid wise authority.

A NEW SYMPHONY
BY FRENCH WRITER
Interesting Work by Guy llo

KLEAXOli SPEXCKR PLAl'S
To those wliu endeavor to read the nlgns
of thu times In tho world of music tho
production of the fourth symphony of Guy
Hopartz was the only matter of signifi
cance In th cPhllhnimonlc Society' con
cert nt Carnegie Hull yesterday afternoon.
The name of Itopartz Is. unfamiliar to
Uw.il concertgoers, though It figured In n
Phllharmoiilc programme last February
as tint of the writer of a symphonic etude
called "The Hunt of King Arthur."
But olcrvera of musical affairs know
that M. Itopartz la director of tho con
servatory of Nancy, nnd that, nccordlng to
Inccnt d'Indy, lie has, In spite of this, "re
mained Indlssolubly attached to Franck'a
principles." Which remark Informs us
that the teachings of tlu great Belgian
master, Cesar Franek, whose pupils nre
among the most progresslio minds of mu
slo.il France, nro not yet accepted with
enthusiasm In the temples of tradition and
Without doubt this will stem puzzling
to thoe who liavo not rend llomaln Boll
mi's "Muslclcns d'AuJourd'hul" nnd nerted
what n tiemendous Inlluenco ho attributes
to the gospel of Ceear Franek In tho
awakening of French musical art after
mo womeir- or is?i. For some years
Franco was eligulfml In the Hood of Wag
licrlMii. The llrst emergence wns tow.nd
a passing infatuation for the Hiiliu m.
tlonaIlm of Crleg, which captivated Parts
- ine novelty ot us lilloni rather than by
the fo-unillty of Its liltii.
After the death of Fmnek (n ism t.i.
disciples became the dominating Inlluenco
in me musical lire or the Oalllc capital.
Franek dwelt In artistic reclon f.ir r.
moved from the tumultuous waves of
agnerism. ills serene and contempla
tive spirit was foreign to the theatre.
Keeping his faculties In meditative re.
pose he brought to tho enthusiastic young
Frenchmen nt his feet what tiny re
garded us the very soul of Bach, nnd ho
led them toward a new and finely con
ceived art, some of whoe most noted ex-
l-onems are ivjndy, Duparo, Ctuuson.

captlvatlngly begun by the Kngllsh ho-n.
Immediately proceeds, but Is piesently In
terruptttl by nil Intermezzo of folk dance
character, of which th- thematic base
curiously resembles a thought In Dvorak's
"New World" symphony. The adagio re
turns, gives wny to a fugued allegretto,
which Is pursued closely by another
adagio, and then begin, th- llivil section
In C minor nnd of a soheizo natuie. The
coda of tho whole work Is slow, sustained
and uncommonly beiutiful in Its clear,
