Capital Pianist and Cellist
With Symphony Please Dr. Kindler Also Includes First Performances of American Composers. By ALICE EVERSMAN. THE patrons of the National Symphony turned out in large numbers yesterday afternoon for the program featured by two local artists, Glenn Carrow. pianist, and Howard Mitchell, cellist, making their most important public appearance with the orchestra at Constitution Hall. Dr. Kindler made this program still further out of the ordinary by Including first performances here of compositions by American composers, van v actor a r-assacagna ana' Fugue” and Paul White's "Five Min iatures,” while taking from the or chestra's repertoire Purcell's "Suite for Strings" as opening number and the waltzes from Richard Strauss’ "Der Rosenkavalier” for conclusion. In Mozart's "Concerto in A Major” Mr. Carow chose a number well suited to demonstrate his fluent technique and his command of style. The care ful attention to detail, the correct swing of a phrase and the balance of light and shade was evident in all • three movements, which furthermore were kept as separate units as to their character. It may have been* that, keeping in mind the delicacy of style of Mozart, he adjusted the volume of tone for that effect for it was too light at times to carry well over the orchestra. Former appearances of Mr. Carow left the impression of greater brilliancy and tonal depth than lie displayed yesterday. Judging entirely from his perform ance in the concerto, one would wish for more roundness and sonority in sustained passages and a consequent sparkle in trills and scales. That this is his natural attribute was felt in the rippling character of his tech-' nique and the fine sentiment he brought into the andante movement. As an orchestra soloist he proved himself quite at home and the audi ence was hearty in its applause, which he had to come out and acknowledge several times. Mr. Mitchell, first cellist of the Na tional Symphony, played the "Sym phonic Variations.” by Boellmann, a virtuoso number capable of display ing the mobility of his tone and his splendid command of his instrument. He played with assurance, taking the flashing measures with facile ease and infusing warmth into the more lyric moments. At times he was over shadowed by the orchestra, which was not so well modulated as in the Mozart number, but in spite of this handicap Mr. Mitchell gave a stirring performance of artistic finish. He also was recalled repeatedly, the audi ence showing by its acclaim of the two soloists its appreciation of Dr. Kindler’s choice for the program. In the two compositions by Ameri can composers, two distinct moods were placed in Juxtaposition. The formal character of Van Vactor’s ‘ Paaaacaglia and Fugue,” completed the day after the birth ot the com poser's daughter and dedicated to her, has nevertheless a human side brought out through the warmth and color of the two parts. Although the com poser has limited himself with the style and themes he has chosen, he has written with vigor and skill. The "Five Miniatures” from the pen of Mr. White, a native of Bangor, Me,, are full of humor and fantasy. His choice of subjects, "Bv the Lake,” "Caravan Song,” "Waltz for Teenies Doll,” "Hippo Dance" and “MoAquito Dance" are pictured in tonal color* of high originality worthy of ranking with Moussorgsky's, Salnt-Saens' and Rebikow's skill in this kind of musical portrayal. The orchestra's reading of the two numbers was less smooth than that given to the Purcell suite and the Strauss "Rosenkavalier” waltzes. In these the orchestra brought greater variety of effects and purity of tone, playing them with the finer polish which has accompanied its perform ances this year. The audience enjoyed the program and showed Dr. Kindler its appreciation fully. - - — ■ • - Noah's ark Is the most popular toy in England this season.
