An for Mniaky-Knrsakov's suite, we
have Indeed not lacked performances of
that. We have heard Its measures at
the simc time as wo have observed the
extraordinary doings of Adolf Holm and
Flora Jlevalles together with numerous
other members of tho celebrated Ballet
Russe. These doings have occasioned
much debate. The composer undertook
to Illustrate certain Incidents In the

billet dealt with very different matters.

Last evening, at any rate, there was

a "piano recital of the Ilontantlclsts."
Excellently planned, ns It scorned to be,
for the recreative mood of a holiday, the

received throughout by an audience of

minor prelude and fugue of Mendels

perhaps her finest work. These com

also the etude, opus 2.". No. II. The
nocturne was played with a musical lone
and beautiful coloring throughout, and
so was the "Winter Wind" elude, which,
with the added features of a splendidly
marked rhythm and a superb, and dash

it had to be repeated. The first piece

Other numbers In Die-second group
were Schubert's "JIark. Hark, the lark."
and 'The Krlklng." as transcribed by
MszL Fine sentiment and feeling, as
well as technical elegance, marked the
delivery, of these pieces. After 'The

The final group contained two well con

First Performance of Season.
With Thanksgiving Day comes the first
performance of "Parsifal" at the Metro

custom, and the sacred festival drama
was performed yesterday in the presence
of a large audience. The cast showed
changes only In the flower girls' depart

last evening In Aeolian Hall. The two
players are local musicians and Bisters.
They performed together Brahms s

thoven's sonata "Appasslonata" and a
croun of shorter numbers. The violinist
was heard In one movement or i.aio
"Symphonic Kepagnole" and In Wle

The two young artists In the Jrahms

the violinist's performance was marked
chiefly by a lovely tone, good technic and
a charm rather than brilliance of style.
The pianist played with a less desirable
finesse but with a tone generally musi
