Hans Kindler Dies at His Summer Home
Dr. Hans Kindler, 56. founder
and former conductor of the Na
tional Symphony Orchestra, died
yesterday at his summer home at
Watch Hill, R. I.
He underwent an operation for
a stomach disorder about two
weeks ago in a Boston hospital.
His widow, Mrs. Persis Myers
Hill Kindler, said he returned to
Watch Hill last Thursday, appar
ently on the road to recovery, but
that he suffered a sudden relapse.
The operation was the second for
the same ailment in two years.
Dr. Kindler's death came less
than six months after his fare
well concert as the National Sym
phony’s leader.
Center of Controversy.
Center of controversy since a
mass meeting of symphony back
ers considered—and indorsed—
his directorship last year, the
Dutch-born ex-cellist first revealed
his decision to quit the symphony
last November. Explaining the
decision, he cited the strain of
his 18 years at the orchestra’s
head, but denied his health was
the reason and said that he
planned to continue his musical
In June he returned to Wash
ington briefly after his last
European tour before going to
Rhode Island for the summer.
Greeting reporters at his home at
2124 Bancroft place N.W., he ap
peared in the best of spirits and
insisted he was in excellent health.

for the last few weeks of the con
cert season to undergo the first
operation. The emergency gave
Howard Mitchell, Dr. Kindler’s
successor, his first major conduct
ing opportunity.
Formed Symphony at 38.
At the time his leadership was
publicly discussed last year. Dr.
Klndler was on a ship en route to
Europe. Informed by telephone
that a 3-to-l vote had supported
him, he expressed gratification
and he later said his resignation
was not influenced by any criti
cism. He admitted, however, that
he did not feel the Symphony
Board members acted “properly”
in putting his status before a
public meeting and to friends he
made It plain he felt strongly on
this subject.
Dr. Kindler was only 38 when
he came here in 1931 to organize
Washington’s first successful sym
phnoy orchestra.
Three earlier attempts had
failed and it was at the height of
the depression, but the young cello
virtuoso, who already had an in
ternational reputation as a soloist
and had been Leopold Stokowski’s
first cellist in the Philadelphia
Orchestra for five years, mus

citizens and boldly launched the
Inaugurated Watergate.
During the 18 years that fol

union and a war. Several times
it seemed about to go under. But

In the adult music world. Dr.
Kindler established a notable
reputation as a champion of
American music. Many a young
composer heard first perform
ances of his works under Dr.
Kindler’s baton, and in one year
the National Symphony led all
other orchestras in the number of
such works on its program.
An occasional composer himself,
Dr. Kindler surprised the music
world last March with the disclos
ure of & musical hoax he had kept
secret for a year and a half. Un
der the name Philip Henry, he had
written—and led many times—a
short work entitled "Pacific Noc
turne,” supposedly inspired by a
Pacific island during wartime. Dr.
Kindler aimed the joke at a Wash
ington critic who praised this work
but jibed at music played under
Dr. Kindler’s own name.
Dr. Kindler led concerts in many
of the world’s great cities, includ
ing two with the National Sym
phony in New York and with other
orchestras in Vienna, Paris, Lon
don, Brussels, Prague, Stockholm
and Rome. He made several tours
of Latin America. One of his most
recent appearances was with the
Philadelphia Orchestra last win

served on recordings.

The reason was simple enough.
Agents of the Justice Depart
ment,’s Immigration and Naturali
zation were shadowing Barsov.
When he left the Embassy, they
arrested him.
The Justice Department said
it was fully aware the Russians
had issued Barsov his passport.
In fact, after detaining him for
six days at Ellis Island, it sent him
back to Europe with that pass
“Recently it came to tlife at
tention of the Government au
thorities that Barsov, who has a
wife and child in the Soviet Union,
wanted to return to the USSR,”
the Justice Department statement
said. “As a result the Depart
ment of Justice returned him tq
Europe in accordance with the
usual procedure.”
As to the second Russian flyer,
the statement said: b
“Mr. Pirogov has continued to
express a firm desire to remain in
the United States and the appro
priate governmental authorities
have indorsed his request for ex
tention of stay.” That request is
now pending before immigration

Barsov and Pirogov reached the
United States February 4 as po

crash-landed in Austria, they told
how they had planned the sensa
tional escape for a year. A ser
geant who was “kidnaped” in the
quick getaway, was permitted to
return to Germany.
At a news conference at Linz,
Barsov said he was oposed to the
Communist ideology, adding:
“I will do anything the United

years later he was elected presi
