DIAL 3 IERLING 5000 Orchestra Plays With Notable Finesse in Auspicious Opening ly Alice tversmaa One of the moat auspicious sea son-openings of the-National Sym phony took place last night in-Con stitution Hall, where a capacity audience warmly greeted Dr. Hans Kindler when he came to the podium to conduct. Besides starting the Wednesday night aeries—albeit on another day—the concert had sev eral particular points of interest. There was, first and foremost, the appearance of Frits Kreisler as so'oist, who was given a vstanding ovation by the public and the orchestra members of some dura tion. A work by the Danish com poser, Knudage Riisager, had Ks American premiere and 8ibelius' “Symphony No. l”-was heard again after a two years’ silence. Although new faces are to be seen among the orchestra person nel, and the beginning of a season means first the welding of the di verse talent into a smooth-working ensemble, the orchestra played with notable finesse. It- has a firm- yet mellow sonority and already a plia bility that presages fine interpretive work throughout the winter. This group of players that belongs to Washington starts its 18th year a wall-integrated, musically knowing unit with a solid block of artists, members for many seasons, as its keystone. Dr. Kindftr can be satis led that, in the comparatively short preparation time for Ihis concert, his intentions and his musical feel ing could be set forth in so polished a manner. The reception accoraea Mr. ivreis ler when he took his . place for the performance of Mendelssohn’s vio lin concerto must surely have warmed his heart. Despite the fact that such a reception is no novelty to him, its spontaneity and genuine ness eould not leave him unmoved. It may have had a somewhat un nerving •Sect, for the great and pooular artist did not reach his well known stride fully until the second movement. A wrong turn in the final measures of the first movement caused the climax to suffer, but in a hardly noticeable dray. As soon as the andante was reached, the lovely Kreisler tone filled the hell and tha unmatehable Kreisler sense of rhythm shone in the concluding allegro. There were tome lapses from pitch, but what does that really matter when there la ao much sheer beauty of aound and so many artistic means of pointing up a phrase? The Mendelssohn concerto has been given countless polished and unpolished deliveries, yet the Kreisler touch cannot be equaled. The ending, with the orchestra urged on to a fiery finish by the soloist, was the signal for an out break of applause that continued long. It was Mr. Kreisler’s only appearance here this season and the audience was loath to let him go. So strong was the wild and ele mental atmosphere of the north created by the Sibelius and the Riisager works that it overshadowed the refhied Purcell “Suite” and the "Three Romanian Dances” by Bar tok, with which the orchestral part of the program began and ended. Hie primeval strength of Sibelius’ "Piret Symphony” is still awesome, although Its speech la now familiar and It is relieved, unlike his later symphonies, by obeisances to other.

Fury and clashing of sound and sweet melodies contrast with a suddenness that overwhelms. Rlisager’s “Quarrtsiluni” has some i thing of this same primitive power. ; Based on an Eskimo legend, its j title means the silent waiting from which “holy songs arise.” A soft drum-beat indicates the pulse of this silence, into which faint stir rings awaken growing more cohe rent until the song is bom. Where as, in Sibelius, the forces of nature take precedent, in “Quarrtsiluni” it is the soul. The composer has caught the psychological factor with extra ordinary, skill and with keen sensi tiveness for minute descriptive pos sibilities in the orchestral body, has done a remarkable bit of tone paint ing. A short work, its character, as reflecting the vision and the tech nical originality of the composer, makes it worthy to stand beside the more imposing symphony of the Finnish master. The unfolding of “Quarrtsiluni” was splendidly accomplished by Dr. Kindler In an impressive reading. If the wildness of Sibelius’ sym phony was somewhat tamed in last night’s performance, and 11 the mo mentum wsj not strongly stressed, there were compensations in the finely wrought detail, the balance p1 color and the brilliance of cli max. Dr. Klndler’s beautiful pre sentation of Coates’ arrangement of Purcell’s music, however, was the gem of the evening and it started the enthusiastic , applause (hat ! awarded the conductor and his men | after each number.
