The Kneisel Quartet Concert.
The Kneisel Quartet gave a very interesting concert last evening in Sever 11 before an audience nearly filling the room. The programme was divided into three parts. Mozart's quartet in D major came first, then two movements from Raff's quartet in D major-"Declaration" and "The Mill"- with the Scherzo from Mendelssohn's E minor quartet. The F major quartet by Beethoven, op 59, completed the programme. It would be impossible to criticize unfavorably any feature of the concert; every selection was played with that display of feeling and precision of tone of which only this quartet is capable. In the first part, the andante and menuetto movement were most cordially received by the audience, while Mendelssohn's Scherzo seemed to be the favorite number in the second part. As in the last concert given here by this quartet, the number of college men present was few. When such splendid opportunities for hearing the highest and purest form of music are presented to us, it is difficult to understand why men do not avail themselves of these privileges. The next concert will be on March 21st.
