Dr. Muck and His Orchestra
Apparently in Full Keepinjr
With tho Weather.
The second afternoon concert of tho
Boston Symphony Orchestra at Carncglo
Hall yesterday afternoon was a atudv In !
moods. The first waa that of lugubrious '
.i i..
depression In which Dr. Karl Muck con
ducted the national anthem of this coun
try. The stars werp dim and It was not
easy to aec that the flag was still there.
The musicians from Boston really ought
to buck un n bit and ahow a more aan-!
gulno spirit when they come here.
The nezt moods wero thosa ef Kdward
MncDcAVvIl, originated by hla contem
plation of Indian music. Ills "Indian
Suite" is familiar. Is admired by many
and mode a theme for rhapsody by tlioae
v.-ho find in all of Mr. MacDowcll's music
the voice of aupremo cenlus. There la
a "legend"' In the aulte, and Inevitably
ii love song. There are other utterances
of Indian love.
"Ijdy Hoetska: that Is the name of
the llttlo night bird of tho desert whoso
sung you sans. When the duak comes I
think of you n Hoetska and lliten for

Pity that the grontes.: of American
composers cmild not have read thoro let

of their snarling. But the sketches re'

are very, very clever.
The roncert ended with Bee thoveuVi

were no snarls und thn trumpet's nis
