Duo’s Series
Of Sonatas
Third Coolidge
Concert Also
Is Givfcn
'the Beethoven sonata series pre
sented by the Belgian artists. Marcel
Maas, pianist, and Alfred Dubois,
violinist, at the Sulgrave Club con
cluded yesterday afternoon. A large
and distinguished audience has
patronized the thrpe concerts, which
were sponsored by the Countess van
rier Straten and were given to help
toward the work being done for poor
churches by the Convent of Per
petual Adoration.
The two artists have made a real
contribution to the musical life of
this city in this series. They have
brought the individuality of their
talents and their polished musician
ship to the interpretation of these
works from a different angle and
have revealed the lyric side of Beet
hoven and stressed the spiritual
tendency which beautified his mui
cal creations.
Yesterday’s program was fittingly
jlimaxed with the Kreutzer sonata
oreceded by another of the finest of
Beethoven's output in this field, the
"Sonata in G Major, Opus 96.” The
opening number was the "Sonata in
D Major, Opus 12, No. 1.”
Mr. Maas’ superb playing imbued
the Kreutzer sonata with brilliant
color and warm feeling while Mr.
Dubois’ expressive tone had an ethe
real quality of penetrating sweet
ness. Whiie it lacked the passion
ate utterance which is usually asso
eiated with the interpretation of
this work, it was none the less lovely
I in its particular character. His
delicately adjusted bowing was
j especially effect ive in the beautiful
I "Andante Con Variazioni,” in which
Mr. Maas excelled in the variety of
his exquisite shadings.
The "Sonata in G Major,” other
i wise known as the "Cockcrow”
sonata, is one of the most lyrical and
most truly inspired of the remaining
nine. The artists played it with
reverence and understanding, plus
n smooth ensemble and well-worked
lout details. The “D Major Sonata,”
, le?s colorful in its content, was pre
( sented writh the same thoughtfulness
and sincerity which characterize
the work of these artists throughout
the cycle. \

A diversified program was given
(last evening at the Library* of Con
gress by the Coolidge String Quartet
in the third of the six concerts
under the Elizabeth Sprague Cool
idge Foundation. It brought to
gether the modernistic Tansman
with Luigi Cherubini and Franz
Schubert making it a little difficult
h.owever to bridge the distance in
style and ideas which these com
posers represent.
For originality both in thematic
material and treatment, Alexandre
Tansman’s “Triptyque,” written in
1930 and dedicated to Mrs. Coolidge,
was the outstanding of the three
quartets programmed. After pass
ing through the first movement,
jt’hich might be likened to a rough
and solid door, a garden of exotic
beauty was discovered in the
andante. Here the composer has j
given rein to his imagination and
has entered a realm of fancy as full
of charm and romance as a fairy*:
He suggests rather than depicte
but all with a delicate touch and a
drop of color here and there tmt
remains as vivid parts of the whine. |
There is a captivating quality in
ahe atmosphere which he has
created and an illusiveness that has
more body than that associated
with Debussy's music. The finale
is a rapid, fleeing movement that
dissolves into nothingness but
clever as it is in its neatness and
brightness, it is the second move
ment that holds the essence of the
composer's particular style.
The posthumous ‘‘Quartet No. 5
In F Major” by Cherubini is an ex
tremely graceful work, beautifully
fashioned and pleasing in spite of
the absence of any depth of thought.
The Schubert "Quartet in G Minor,”
composed a year after his first
“Mass in F " has little of the free
dom of expression and joyous
spontaneity which mark his iater
The members of the Coolidge
group. William Kroll and Nicolai
Berezowsky, violins, Nicolas Mold
avian. viola, and Victor Gottlieb,
cellist, were in excellent form last
•evening playing with greater tonal
sonority and finer shadings. Tire
enseftble of these musicians has
always been remarkably fine and
was particularly to be noticed yester
day in the Cherubini and the Tans
man quartets. The auditorium was
crowded and generously voiced ap
preciation followed each number.
Tomorrow at 3:45 p.m. the same
rroup will play Haydn's "Quartet in
D Major, Op. 64. No. 5.” Frank
Bridge's “Quartet in G Minor” and
the Brahms’ "Quartet in B Flat
Itlajor, Op. 67.”
