The vogue of Ilusnlan music in New York at the moment la worthy of con sideration. Tschalkowsky may perhaps be omitted from the view, since he has long been with us and the aymphonte have perhaps lost some of their point for many hearers, but the Schola Cantorum Is preparing to present a programme of musto of the Iluulsn people, some of wWch found Its way Into the latest con cert of the Russian cathedral choir. Ilachmanlnov'e "Island of the Dead" was slaved on Saturday by the Boston or chestra. Dot Is Oodunov continues to hold lis place in the Metropolitan repertoire and Stravinsky's first symphony will sliortlv ha vlven bv the Hussian Sym phony Orchestra. Meanwhile the ballet Is on Its way und w shall hear Ituselan music, and aee Hussion dancers. The "Pique Dame" of Tschalkowsky was presented at the Metropolitan, but made no lasting IniDresslon. It wanted that direct and forceful expression of the Hussian character which gave "Boris" Its success and Which Is to be fuund In a smaller degree In "Prince Igor.' The failure of Uorodln to draw In sharp outlines the characters of hla Prince and Princess Is the most note worthy defect In this new Hussian opera. On the other hand, the choral numbers and the ballet have much of the char nctertzatlon wanting In the delineation of these two chief roles. If the opera holds Its place, it will be chiefly through Its expression of the feelings of Rus "Inns and Orientals who mingled their Inlluences with the later development of ttie people of the great empire. The performance of Isst evening was attended by an audience of good sue but there was room for more. The cast, of course, was unchanged, hut the audi ence narrowly escaped a change of opera. Mme. Alda, who sings Jarot laina. was suffering from a cold, and had it not been for her great reluctance to break her record of never falling to appear when announced, she would not have -ning. In the circumstances she acquitted herself well, Mr. Amato lepeated his admirable I in liersonatlon uf I'rlncc law, and Mr. Dldur again acted and sung with ex cellent art as Prince CaUtsku. The other members of the cast discharged their duties efllclently. The singing of the chorus I; a promi nent feature In this opcm, for .ib In "Hurls," the chorus has an lmortnnt role. The ballet cune In the Turkish cjmp was effect le as before und the dulicing called forth much applause. Ilorulo INdacco condu ted.
