Mozart, Brahms, and Sibelius Represented in Tonight's Symphony Program

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The Philadelphia Orchestra under Leopold Stokowski is coming to Symphony Hall on Tuesday evening for a single concert. The program includes four Bach transcriptions by Stokowski himself and three excerpts from Wagner's "Die Gotterdammerung". The famous conductor has not been heard here for many years and is now commencing a nation-wide tour.

Mdzart's Overture to "The Marriage of Figaro" opens this evening's concert by the Boston Symphony in Sanders Theatre. Following this delightful work is the Brahms Concerto for Pianoforte No. 2 in B flat with Artur Schnabel as soloist. As an artist, Mr. Schnabel is always the servant of the spirit of the music as well as the absolute master of its performance--a eulogy which cannot be applied to many. The work itself is a rather amazing combination of concerto and symphony and is considered by many a none too happy example of Brahms's genius. The concert is to close with the First Symphony of Sibelius which was so inspiringly conducted by Dr. Koussevitzky last week.

Chavez, Guest Conductor

The weekly concerts of the Symphony in Boston include the Brahms concerto with Schnabel, and two new works, "Sinfonia of Antigona" and "Sinfonia India" by the Mexican modernist, Carlos Chavez, with the composer himself conducting.
