Artur Schnabel, concert pianist and composer, has been appointed Louis C. Elson Memorial Lecturer for 1949-50, Provost Paul H. Buck announced yesterday.
Schnabel will give two lectures on "Music--Its Function and Limitations" here early next December. He succeeds Howard Hanson, of the Eastman School of Music. Hanson took over the post after its establishment in 1948. Mrs. Bertha L. Elson donated the lecture series in honor of her husband, a Boston musician and critic.
Schnabel has toured the United States and Europe for the past few years, giving concerts of the works of Beethoven, Brahms, and Mozart, in particular.
