er like the Only Oscar to put the small
fry early and so hold the crowd to the
finish. That's where Oscar's "Hhadow
jwn Walts" came on the programme,
clown near the finish, with Chopin's
"Polonaise Mllltalre" tacked on as mi
antl-cllmactic number Just to make
everybody statu! up and holler for more
of Oscar's stuff.
Hut the audience was good nattircd.
It sat patiently, oven with seeming en
thusiasm, during the rendition of Mo
aart's stuff and tho rest of the pieces by
Masjenet and the oilier foreigners which
had been Inserted to lead up to Oscar's
".Shadow Lawn Walts."
And at last, 'along about 10:30 o'clock,
or at an hour when Oscar's public was
IwRlnnlng to grip the scats with pent up
Impatience, an awful thing happened.
Out ottt,o the. stage came Impresario
Kahn and announced with tears In hla
volco that although the Only Oscar was
In tho ' house the great Forty-second
street composer had decided to let tin
regular leader of lbs orchestra, Oscar
Splrescu, conduct the "Shadow Lawn

The orchestra waded Into the "Shadow
Lawn Walti" amid a tremendous silence
on tho paying side of the footlights, and
In fact had got through n quarter of an
hour or mere of the composition It waa
one of those lengthy Vlennoso walUea

shortly before 11 o'clock (1. M.) and
those In tho audience who had been bet

along came another surprise. Homebody
with a voice Just like Morris (Sest'a be
Ran to yell: "Ilammersteln! Hammer
stein And out onto the stage came the Onlr
Oscar. The deuce Itself broke loose;
and when the chandeliers had ceased to
rattle and the dust had settled somewhat
the Only Oscar raised his hand and be
gan to speak.
"Three years more and I shall be an
exllo from here no longer," he said, the
applause booming again as Oscar's pub
lic realised thaj he meant when his con
tract with the Metropolitan Opera House
folk runs out he will be back at the Man

Written on Rasa Order.
And then he explained modestly that he
had written the "Shadow Lawn Walti"
on a sort of rush order for the concert
trade because a tenor who had been en
gaged long ago to appear last night had
notified the head foreman or somebody
that he couldn't he on the Job. He was
one of those tenors, raid Oscar, "who
surfer from lemonltls." And Oscar con
cluded his short speech with the nx-ltal
of the Joy "an old man" gets from writ
ing wattles and everything, a laugh
greeting that remark about being an old
"Shadow Unn Waltx" belongs to the
highly descriptive school affected by the
tale 1'utrlck Sarstl)d Ollmore and his
band. Ollmore being InattKurator of the
blank cartridge, hammer on the anvil

calls early upon the French horns to
suggest the planing mill gingerbread

And so It goes until the long last sor
rowful sustained note at the end of the
waltz, epitomizing, so Morris tiest said
again hack' among the standees, the long.
lotiR time Shadow Lawn Is to remain In
the slen.s. And all through the
"Shadow li wn Waltz" tlirre are high
notes nnd low notes, notes repeated with
new notes wedged In between. And air
came forth from the wind Instruments
throughout the whole composition and
there was noise and sound and a wealth
of more sound.
The management tried to make up fur
Oscar's failure to conduct by substitut
ing Percy Grainger at the piano every
now and then, hut even Percy's pieces
and his long yellow locks failed quite to
satisfy the fans who had come to see
the Rreatest Oscar conduct. Chopin tried
to hold the crowd after Oscar had fin.

least had seen und heard Composer

played on the audience got up and

BEGINS ITS SEASON
Sot'iety Starts Campaign to
Raise. Million Dollar En
The. People's Symphony Society, Krani
X. Arens conductor, opened Its. seven
teenth season with the first of a series
of three concerts yesterday afternoon
at Carnegie Hall. The orchestral num
bers offered were Massenet's "Phedre"
overture and the "Meditation" from tho
same composer's opera, "Thuts" ; fichu
bert's unfinished symphony, Liszt's "Lea
Preludes" and his Hungarian rhapsody
No. S. with a czlmbolom obllgato, played
by M. dross.
Christine Miller was the soloist. Her
numbers were tho aria "Mou cceur
H'ouvre a ta volx," from Salnt-Saens's
"Samson and Delilah," and a group of
songs that consisted of Iirahms's
"Staendchen" and "Per Sohmled," the
old Irish melody "Pendnneer's Stream"
and the "A Ilondel of Spring." by Frank
Rlbb, who accompanied the contralto In
her donga at the piano.
When Mr. Arena organized these Peo
pie's Symphony concerts In 1900 he thus
stated his purpose: "I want to make It
poHslhlo for every mtudc lover In New
York to hear the works of the masters."
To accomplish this purpose and so allow
students and perpons of most limited In
comes to attend Its concerts the society,
from the time It began work In Cooper
Cnlon Hall, has given eacn year a series,
of orchestral entertainments at prices
ranging even as low as 10 cents.
The programme arrangements of
these entertalnmcntH has always been
one of broad, systematic progression,
and Mr. Arens has, through explanatory
remarks made at the concerts or hy
printed notes, sought to give his uuill
encei an Idea of the plan, harmonic
structure and musinal nlKiilfkanco of the
compositions as they wcro presented.
The coming season, It seems, is to be
one of crucial moments for tlm society,
according to an announcement It has
recently Issued. Mr, Arens baa always
contended that muslo for the people
must be endowed, or else the attempt to
make any project such as a popular
orchestra one of permanent educational
force, will only terminate In financial or
artistic disaster. With this contention
In nilnd the society Is npw attempting
to raUe a million dollar endowment fund
and the task that looms up ahead for it
miring the coming season lies In the
fa ft that certain conditions prevail
whereby the first $100,000 of tho fund
must be raited byAprll 1, ,

FRAXKO UNEARTHS BACH
Pamroseh Discovers Mozart's
Haffner Symphony and Tt
Sounds Quite New.
The first concert of the Symphony So
ciety of New Tork, Walter Damroscli
conductor, took' place yesterday after
noon In Aeolian Hall. The programme
consisted of Mozart's symphony In U
major. No. 395 lit the Koechcl catalogue;
two orchestral symphonies from Ilach
cantatas, arranged by Sam Franku, and
Ileeflioven's "Pastoral"i sjmpliony.
It was a concert In which pure musical
beauty reigned supreme, and In which,
since there was no glorification of a
solofst, every element of personal sensa
tionalism was happily absent. Mr. Dam
roscli deserves the gratitude of music
lovers for beginning his season with
such a concert, and for resurrecting
lovely thoughts long burled.
How many present day concertgoers
have heard Mozart's "Haffner"' sym
phony? Tug Ht'N's reviewer cannot re
call having listened to It before yester
day. It ought to be heard often and
often. Mozart wrote It In 17DI for u
festlvnl of the Jlaffner family in Salz
burg. It was composed quickly, but
rapidity of production never ruffled the
spirit of Mozart. Ilia music is alt spoil-!
laneous and this succinct symphony is
radiant with verve and buoyant melody.
Sain Franko loves to rummage umong
the pages of the old masters and unearth
treasures long burled In the dust of
libraries. He has on more than one oc
casion brought Joy to music lovers und
he added yesterday to our burden of
gratitude. The first of the two pieces
was the orchestral symphony to the
cantata "Am Sonntage Quaslmodogenltl"
and the Introductory arioso of a later
cantata, "lch steh' mlt elnem Fuss Im
In the former Mr. Franko hns kept
very close to the original, merely writing
out the organ rontlnuo, adding expres
sion marks, and slightly altering tho re
latlon of the parts, flut the style of
Hard Is preseried and the classic beauty
of the music unimpaired.
The other piece was orlglnnlly for
oboe. Mr. Franko has arranged It for
strings, giving the melody first to cellos
and afterward to violins. As Mr. Mason
In his always helpful programme notes
Judiciously has said, this arrangement
hai' provided us with u companion piece
to the familiar "Air" so often played.
Itoth these compositions are beautiful
and they doubtless will be beard many
times in the future. Perhaps their
emergence may encourage conductors to
explore the catacombs In search of novel
ties. Such mtnlc as this Ik worth many
tons of the vapid new stufT which Is too
often brought to us Willi loud prefatory
proclamations of Its Importance,
It remains only to say that the or
chestra played admirably throughout the
concert. The balance Bnd transparency
of Its performance were generally most
commendable, though the trombones
anight at times have lieen more re.
strained. But It Is not essemiai m rir
nice questions where so much was good.
