NOVEMBER '10," 1918.
Motfttjux Presents Programmo
Combining1 Old Favoiitcs
With tho Now.
Evening' Concert Presents
Mischa Lcvitzki ns Soloist in
Snint-Sncns Number.
Thero was a tlma when he who pro
ceeded from a matinee concert, of the
Boston Symphony Orchestra to an eve
ning contribution by tho Symphony So
ciety of New Tork. carried a brokefi
heart and a humble spirit.. But tho
tamper of the time Is different and,- as
they say In "tho Street." confldenco has
Tjocn restored. The Bostonlans gave
their first matlneo yesterday In Carnegie
Hall and the New Yorkers their second
evening concert.
M. Monteux presented a programme
of tha old and the new, with tho elders
sitting on guard nt tho front and the
rear. Handel ushered In the feast with
his concerto grosso in D, No. C, nnd
Beethoven finished it with his symphony
In A, No. 7. Betwixt and Between them
were Charles Martin Loeffler'fl "La
Bonno Chanson" and Vincent d'Indy'a
"Istnr" variations.
A word about Loeffler, about whom
loo few are written. This composition
was written In 1901, and xlnce has been
remodelled, nt least as to Its Instrumenta
tion. It Is not ono of the best works ot
th'.s genuinely Important American com
poser. Ho Is American only by naturali
zation, like bo many other things mu-
elciil: but he is not American In the
fathion of Imtatlng the Teutonic lords
ot sound.
He writes like the modern Frenchmen,
but with a clearly distinguishable Indi
viduality. "La Bonne Chanson." which
pursues tho elusive shadow of a Vcr
lalne fancy, is skilfully made, and Its
orchestral textures are gorgeous, but its
Imagination halts at times and there Is
too much method In Its fantasy.
Dnncc of the Seven Veil.
The Sun's musical recorder confesses
to nn nnclent and somewhat shamefaced
weakness for d'Indy'a delineation of the
entry of Istar Into the lower regions. Of
course there It tomethlng ludicrous ln
the attempt to compose the disrobing
dance of the seven veils by clothing a
meme m variations, stripping them oft
pno at a time and exposing the theme
unnnorned at the end.
But how beautiful the naked theme
when you get down to It! One remem
bers Herod's cry, "Dance for me,
halomo. Ah. thou art to dance with
naked feet. 'Tin well. Thy little feet
will bo like white doves. They will bo
lllio little white tlowers that dance upon
tho trees." Yes, there como memories.
Hut what havo they to do with the Bos
ton Symphony concert?
The orchestra was very luscious In cer
tain parts of these two modern lyrics
of senre. But, alas, there was much dry
nets In the Ingenious and delectable con
certo of Mr. Handel. The solo instru
ments, wern particularly professorial ln
toun nnd stylo and the tuttl were rec
tangular. The ftr.it movement ot the
Beethoven symphony liml little of the
Joyous spirit of the comi user's fancy ex
cept speed and Impetun.slty. u had
enough and to spare of both.
The slow movement cannot easily bo
spoiled, hut It was well done nnd the
scherzo was played ndmliably. There
was more clarity and thero was a finer
adjustment of tonal balance In tho mid
dle movements of the symphony than ln
anything elsa the orchestra lias done
here under tho baton of M. Monteux.
He seems to bo happier ln tho heavier

nicely shadod gradation ot ideas and
Mr. Damrosch's orchestra shone ro
fulgently In the Insistent measures of
the pictorial symphony." 'There was a
refreshing virility In everything, nnd
with It went hand Ip hand brilliant
clarity and finish. Tho performance
proved tho mettle of, the organisation
nnd particularly did it disclose fully
tho opulent quality of the strings. Let
It bo added that It was also n demon
stration of Mr, Damrosch's grasp of the
technics, of orchestral balance.
Mischa Lovltzkl was the soloist He
played the Salnt-Snens concerto n)t like
a young man barely past the threshold
of his career but llko n master In the
renith of his powers. His fingers wero
steel or velvet ns ho wished. Hlstouch
ranged from Icy staccato to mellow le
gato, and the strenmlng passages flowed
llko chanipn.gne. But abovo all ho ad
justed his resources to the presentation
of n musical reading of tho cetfiposltlon.
Brilliancy ln the polished swiftness uud
tha sweeping splnshes of color charac
terised his playing, but delicacy, ravish
ing flucsso nnd exquisite feeling also
wero manifested. 'It was n very excel
lent performance.
Mr. Vldal's dances were pretty. Tholr
suggestion of the dainty Tanagra figure
was no moro evident than was the odor
of tangerine oranges. But a ballet Is
not mado of titles, nor yet of costumes.
There Is still a wldo chasm between the
stage ot tho Grand Opera nnd the Imag
