SYMPHONY SOCIETY '

HKK TONK IS BKAUTIFC'L
Kvoning Affair Is Devotod to
Two concerts were given by the Sym
phony Society In Carnegie Hall yester
day and both were the last but one In
their respective series.
In the afternoon the Young People's
Concert of the society took place lie fore
n large audience. The soloist was the
Brazilian pianist Gulomar Novaes. who
was heard In Chopin's Infrequently
played concerto for pianoforte In F
minor. She gave a beautiful perform
ance of the work, one confined entirely
to the poetic message of the music and
notable for an exquisite display of
nuance and tone color.
The other programme numbers were
Haydn's "Clock" .symphony and the
"Valse Lente" and "Pliglcatl" from De
llbes's ballet "Sylvia." The orchestra
playe'd the symphony as the first selec
tion ond Mr. Damrosch made some
prefatory remarks on the score. He also
told of the other well known Instance
In musical literature where the ('tick
tack" Is represented; namely, in the
allegretto of Beethoven's eighth sym
phony, which was written In memory
of Maelzel, the Inventor ot the metro
nome. At the start, after the national an
them had been rendered by the orchestra
and audience, Mr. Damrosch called at
tention to two new stars on the or
chestra's service flag suspended over the
stage, one being for a double bass
player who Is already with the colors
and tho other for tlie orchestra's first
'cellist, Mr. Roentgen, who wllljlkewlse
go to-morrow morning. '
In the evening, at the aociety's regular
Saturday night subscription concert, the
programme was derated largely to
Tschaikowsky and Wagner. Hulda
Lnshanska, the young local soprano, who
achieved success at her recent debut re
cital here., waa the soloist.
For the symphonic number the or
chestra repeated Its splendid per
formance of Tschalkowsky'a fourth
symphony, heard at the society's concert
week ngo. Tho second number was
Mme. Lashanka's singing of "Depuls le
The selections from Wagner were the
"Dance of the Apprentices." from "Die
Mclsterslnger," and three operatic ex
cerpts arranged for concert by Walter
Damro.ch from "Parsifal," the "Proces
Mcn of the Knights of the Holy Grail."
Act I. ; the love music and "Brangaenc's
Warning," f'om "Tristan and Isolde,"
Act II., and "Siegfried PresseM Through
the Flames Brunnhlldt'n Awakening,"
Act III. The audience was very large.
LETZ QUARTET PLAYS.
If shows Smoothness aua Weft
Tlie second subscription concert of
the Lett Quartet took place yesterday
afternoon In Aeolian Hall. The pro
gramme comprised Moaart's D ni.ij'ir
quartet, No. o7i in the Koecliel cata
logues: Beethoven's In E flat, opus 127,
anil IHorak's American quartet, opus

showed an Interest not only In the or
ganization headed by Hans Itz. for
merly second violin of tho Kneli-el Quar

form of Instrumental music
Mr. Lets and his associate gave a
good concert. Tnelr playing has smooth

ronimend It. If there Is no great dis
tinction in their performance there la

the following statement last night con
cerning the Association's effort to raise
"Up to and Including Saturday morn

drive for funds totalled $148.000 or
$53,000 short of the total $200,000 need

hoped that the two remaining days of
the drive will reduce the amount con
siderably, so that the remainder will
come In through the regular channels.
"In n way, the result Is most gratify

clothing and shelter for those unfortu

themselves, but becau'o It again Illus

lajsto.', Feb, 2.1. Earl Brasey, 83,
yachting enthusiast, authority on naval
subjects and one of the picturesque fig
ures or England, died here to-night
after an acute Illness of a few days.
His death came as a shook. While
It was known thai he had been In HI
health for some time, It was not believed
that his condition was such as to war
Fof many years Karl Hrasey had
been prominent In yachting affairs of
the world. Ills yacht, the Sunbeam,
was famtylar on both aides of the Atlan
tic. A yachting record was made by the
little craft in 1314 when it sailed from
Aden to Bombay, a itstamce of 1,800
miles. In ten days and eight hours. ,
When the war started Kail Rrassey
Joined the Royal Navy Division and al
though 79 years old went to the Darda
nelles and participated In the naval op
erations there. Later he was engaged
In hospital ship work, ninklng weekly
tripe to France to carry over stores nnd
bring back Injured soldiers.
Tho Earl was arrested as nn English
spy In Kiel harbor on June 25. 1914.
which wns five weeks befoie the war
started, where he had gone In the Sun
beam for the regatta week. Leaving his
yacht In a dingy late one afternoon lie
started rowing around the harbor. When
passing near tlie Imperial dockyard n
policeman arrested him and held him for
an hour and fifteen minutes before he
obtained his release.
The elevation of Karl Brassey to the
peerage occasioned widespread comment
throughout England, nnd some criticism
of William E. Gladstone.
He began life at breaking stones by
the roadside. As time passed his father
amassed a fortune In Iron nnd left his
son a large fortune.
Soon nfterward the future earl mar
ried, and he and his wlfo made up their
minds to make their way In the social
wrrld. They set out to obtain a tltlo
and obtain It they did. Mrs. Brassey did
all sorts nf things in a charitable way.
Mr. Brnssey acquired a largo country
place In Sussex. After Alfred llward.
Prince of Wales and future King of
England, visited them Mr. Brassey ran
for the House of Commons and was
elected. Soon Afterward Mr. Gladstone
formed a new Cabinet and selected Mr.
Brassey as Civil Lord of the Admiralty.
This position led to his elevation to tho
Earl Brassey attributed the start of
the war to the fact that "geographical
pressure on all sides has made Prussia
feel herself In a state of chronic strangu
lation, nnd a man who feels strangled
will struggle ruthlessly for breath."
