MUSIC AND DRAMA
'HEARD AT ACADEMY
WITH BOSTON BAUD
Beethoven and Strauss
Played to Perfection y
Doctor Muck and H i s
The SOth season of the Boston Sym
phony Orchestra In rhllndelphla began
last night at the Academy of Music. Dr.
Knrl Muck brought his entire band of
300 musicians, with but two substitutions
caused by the war. The personnel of the
orchestra, with Messrs. Wllek, Longy.
"Wnrnke nnd Maqunrre, Is as familiar nnd
ns grateful to l'hltadetphln as the buff
covered program with Mr. Hale's de
lightfully Inconsequential notes. And
last night, when that familiarity wn
Justified by the perfect performance
'which the orchestra gave, the enthusiasm
of the audience touched oven Dr. Muck
to an unwonted movement of sympathy
with his players.
What the Boston Symphony has above
everything Is perfect tone, not only In
the superb wind choir, not only In the
olo oboe or In tho horns, but In Ite en
semble, a vastly more difficult thing to
attain. Last night there was perhaps
but one second of time In which tho tone
fell oft. The rcBt of tho ovenlng It was
impeccable, and although the pieces they
played is none of them dependent wholly
on tone, the fulness and the grandeur of
each was realized through that quality.
To single out the work of Mr. "Warnko
and Mr. Longy In tho funeral march of
the "Erolcn." of the horns In the "Don
Juan," and of tho strings In tho dellcato
fugel Interludes of the "Bartered Bride"
Is only tp Indicate that In the most diffi
cult of parts tho Boston players aro at
Doctor Muck's program was wisely, al
most cleverly, arranged. Its symphony
Is familiar, but Doctor Muck chose to
play It because he was ablo to make a,
how thing of It Against It he placed tho
tempestuous "Don Juan" and evoked mel
odious beauty nnd sensuous .-npeal of an
extraordinary power. Tho quirKty In the
"Don Juan" which makes It so power
ful Is that, unllko tho Beethoven, Its
emotional appeal is centered through tho
burning glass of tho Intellect, while Bee
thoven Is pure sunshine, fire and nlr. It
is generally considered that the Injection
of the mind Into an affair of passion Is
ruinous. The appeal of last night's tone
poem was adequate answer to this Ill
considered opinion. Then, to Blacken the
efraln, the orchestra played Smctana,
eloriouely humorous and healthy, played
it with Joyous spirit and almost reckless
Pasquale Amato was tho soloist of tho
evening, and vory good he had to be to
make himself a place there. That Mr.
Amato's triumph, was personal, while that
of tho geniuses of the orchestra was so
cial, Is hardly to be held against him. Ho
was the soloist and not a member of tho
playing organization. Ho assuredly tri
umphed. In spl- of some difficulties with
the second veme of his Salnt-Saens aria,
because his voice was rich and robust,
Jits tones well sustained, and his dra
matic feeling, ugaln in SalntlJaens, Ir
reproachable. In tho IlandeViilr, known
familiarly In what Mr. Hf ? calls "the
preposterous arrangement" jf tho "Lar
go," Mr. Amato could nof be dramatic;
the song Is a pure flow of easy, almost
expressionless feeling, and Mr. Amato
was artistically Just In hlB singing. Ho
Bang easily, without a trace of labored
"production." That ho made a great
many people think of Tltta Ruffo, and
think without prejudice to himself. Is
sufficient compliment to him.
The Beethoven symphony was by
divine right the triumph of the evening.
The fact that it was heard In the samo
place a week ago contributed to tho
further glory of Doctor Muck and his
men. From tho moment the 'cellos gave
out the sonorous first theme, to the ex
uberant apotheosis of the last moment,
the playing was of the highest order,
and that being said, there remains only
consideration of the Interpretation which
Dr. Muck put upon the muslo. It Is
more than a century since the "Erolca"
-was first played, and It Is very possible
that many conductors have played It cor
rectly before. It Is certain that most
have played It vilely. Last night It was
played as Beethoven might have wished
It, and played so as to end forever the
rather silly discussions as to "what It
stands for," In all the meanings
ascribed to It, Wagner's alone has sense.
The "Erolca" Is Napoleonic because at
the time It was written Napoleon ap
peared to Beethoven as the completo
man, the balancing of all human powers
Into titanic perfection. That Is all. But
what life meant to" Beethoven Is even
more Important than the individual who
represented life at Us best to him. The
meaning of the funeral march with the
dashing, fearless scherzo placed after It,
was made beautifully clear last night
It Is that In the midst of death we are
in life and that Is a more glorious
truth than that In the midst of death
we are In lifo. That la why the "Erolca"
is the bravest, the subllmest of sym
phonies. Played as It waa last night It
made tho ordinary affairs of existence
things of precious and wonderful im
portance. It achieved what all great
muslo should, what Mahler's Fifth Sym
phony, for example, achieves In the
same way the transformation of life
Into a more splendid thing than It seems.
That achievement marks the greatness
of Doctor Muck. He conducted last
night with all his old aristocratic pbwer,
passionless and proud, apparently, but
moving his orchestra and his hearers
to passion and to pain. The restrained
and ordered power of his leading, the
final ability to command the rarest
subtleties of feeling, wore his. His
gaunt Mepblstolean graces stood apart
from the orchestra; he seemed to com
mand and to listen with all the air of
a conqueror. His conquest, for that, was

This production of "Tho Rivals" Is eas

To lovers of muslo the performance of
FriU Bruch and his sister Is warmly
recommended. Mr. Bruch is a 'cellist of
rare attainments. Miss Bruch rendered
Mauser's transposition of the "Hungarian
Rhapsody" with a swing and dash and
vigor surprising In so young an artist,
and revealed the same virility and artistry
In the Brahms-Joachim "Hungarian
Dance," which she played with her
brother. It Is seldom (hat musical artists
of their calibre appear In vaudeville. And
a tribute must be rendered also the audi
ence, who responded with unexpected dis
crimination. Others on tho bill are Gallagher and
Carlln, In an amusing burlesque singing
act! Britt Wood, Gusa Van and Joa

troupe of 70 wonderfully trained pigeons.
