OPENS ITS SEASON
Organization Heard in Pro
gramme of Beethoven, Ber
lioz, Liszt and Strauss.
"EltOICA" SUPERBLY DONE
Standards of tho Institution
Kept Up to thp Cus
Dr. Kurl Muck and the Hoaton 8ym
phony Orchestra are In town again.
Their first concert of the current season
took place last evening In Cumegle Unit.
The progiamiitr was urr.Ktged In a way
that might suggest to an essayist a long
discussion on the growth of certain ten
dencies In modern music. It consisted of
ileethoveii's "Hrolcit" symphony, Uer
IIoi'h "Corsair" overture, LIskCh sym-phonic-
poem, "Mareppa," and Strauja's
Ilete Is a awlft survey of the Meld of
modern '"programme" music, with three
periods clearly defined and even the re
marknhlo Influence of Hyron Indicated.
Hut these arc matters for sober reflec
tion, tiot for the running record of the
morning after. Possibly one might
pause Ion enough to wonder whether
Dr. Muck had been reading Qulntlllin on
oratory, for that eminent teacher ad
lsed the placing of the weakest argu
ments In the middle, nnd Dr. Muck had
hli weakest compositions In this well
The performance of the "nrolca." fa
miliar as the symphony Is, was of im
pressive character. The funeral march
has often been played admirably In this
city, but Its profound solemnity and Its
poignant emotion have never been
brought out more strikingly than they
were last evening.
In the scherzo Dr. Muck Indulged In
an artlst'H caprice by resting through
more than half of the movement, al
lowing thn orchestra to display Its brill
iant precision and virtuosity by proceed
ing without h!s direction. Or Is It possi
ble that the distinguished conductor
does not tlnd himself so deeply Inter
ested In the scherxo as In the other move
ment? It wus manifest that his heart
was In the finale, for ho directed it with
great feeling and It was superbly played.
The Hoston orchestra has seen many
changes In Its personnel, but none ex
cept for the better In Its nrtldtlc excel
lence. It Is still a great institution und
Its visits to New York continue, to be
among the real events of the musical
LORTAT MAKES DEBUT.
French Pianist tilves nn Interest
. Itobert Lortat. a French pianist, gave
I a recital yesterday afternoon In Aeolian
Hall. Mr. Lortnt. who has recently come
to this country with Jacmies Thlbaud,
with whom h has frequently appeared
In concert on the Continent, received a
year's leave of absence from the French
army, during which he will tour Amer
ica. Winner of the Dkmer prize, ho Is
credited with having won many other
laurels In recltuls given In Paris and 111
various countries In l.urope.
llu offered a programme of unique
Interest. It began with the F.tudca Sym
phonlques of Schumann, followed by
Chopin's tenty-fom- prelude, played
without pau-e. nnd closed with the "Le-
1 gende do St. Franco' de Panic" and
".Marcn.int sur les uois 01 i.ieii. 1 leire
by Debus)' were In the list and ul'o a
nocturne and an Imvmriiptu of Faure, Tho
pieces by Deodat de Severac from his
"Cerdat.a" suite "Les Muletlers (levant
le Christ de L'.vla" and "Le retour des
Muletlers" und a "Scherzo Valse," by
Mr. Lortat In his performance showed
that he Is a well schooled musician und
one who commands attention by an ad
mirable attitude of sincerity toward his
art. Ills playing, especially In the larger
numbers, was of a somewhat uneven
merit, due In part no doubt to tho try
Ing conditions attending a debut.
His tone was never forced, though he
wt Eonu effects through a less careful
nediilllng. In technic he -howed much

MR. WHEELER'S RECITAL.
Church Choir Tenor Appear In a
William Wheeler, a tenor, who Is
known In New York ns a church choir
and oratorio singer, gave his Hm re
cital last evening In Aeolian Hall. He
presented a carefully arranged pro
gramme, which began with three old
Italian ulrs, followed by a group of Ger
man lyrics from standard German com
posers. A number of folk songs Gaelic,
negro, as arranged by H. T. Hurlelghs
ancient Orknev and Manx ninde up the
third part, while the list closed with
bongs In Kngllsh.
Mr. Wheeler sang with a voice of
powerful, ytt good quality, which In Its
lower note extended Into the barytone
range. He uses It on the whole well.
A tendency to throatlness now and then
Impaired smoothness In tonal emission
and there could havo been more variety
In coloring as well tut a moro general

well known here, as are her certain ec
centricities of manner which have
caused unfortunate comment. These
eccentricities at times seem to detract
from desirable repose In her work, while
the very strength of personality from
which they spring can too easily lend
a foreign If not personal atmosphere to
the work In hand.
This latter defect was especially
obvious In her playing of the Uach
music yesterday and caused It to lack

MYRTLE MOSES HEARD)
Singer of Chlraso Opera Makes
Myrtle Moses, a mexio soprano of the
Chicago Opera, was heard In a first
recital here yesterday afternoon at tho
Port Theatre. She sang songi by
I'eethoven, Haydn and Hrahms, a song
In manuscript called "llerbstweh," by
Ilelnrlch Pfiuner, and numbers by
French nnd American writers. William
Iteddlck assisted at the piano.
Thn singer disclosed a volco of rood
quality and ran git und generally well ,
schooled. It lacked something In airy
charm and color anil lost some llnlfh
through too muth use of thu portamento. .
Her style 111 geiietal. however, was good. I
In songs by Hrahms, aa his "Iminer i
lelser wlrd meln Schlummer," sho sue- I
ceeded admirably In giving them tho
proper Interpretation or mood, ana again
In tho Pfltxncr song, which proved to he
a lyric of Interest.

Harem Scene In "Seheheraiade"
Drlnara Forth lltaaea.
NiJInsky's "L'Apres Midi d'un Faune"
startled Hrooklyn last night, and at the
harem tctne of "Scheherazade" tha ,
Academy of Music audience seemed ,
frankly shocked There was a percepti
ble stage wait when the curtain de- j
scended, while people caught their'
breath, nnd then a part of the audience, 1
plainly a minority, started to applaudo j
a bit. There were hisses, whether forj
the ballet or for that part of the au
dience which wanted to show It like the i
scene, there Is some uncertainty. It was
apparent th.it Hrooklyn did not wish to
seem enthusiastic about a ballet that had
trouble gettlnc by the Paris censors nnd
that the lyindon police stopped, I
