Arture Toscanini, without doubt the greatest of all living conductors, is coming to Symphony Hall next Monday evening and Tuesday afternoon to give a pair of concerts with the New York Philharmonic-Symphony Society. As has been announced, this is to be the famous maestro's final season in America, and consequently it will be the last opportunity Bostonians will have to hear him. The programs are likely to be exceedingly popular, for they contain the great masterpieces of symphonic literature, which, with Toscanini's incomparable approach, will be anything but hackneyed. That of Monday evening consists of Weber's Overture to "Der Freischutz," Beethoven's Seventh Symphony, Brahms' Variations on a Theme by Haydn, Smetana's symphonic poem "Vitava," and Wagner's Overture to "The Flying Dutchman." The Tuesday program includes Brahms' Fourth Symphony and Strauss's "Death and Transfiguration."

Noted Cellist in Recital

Besides these notable concerts, another most interesting one is to take place at Jordan Hall on Wednesday evening, namely the joint recital of Beatrice Harrison, the famous English cellist, and Henri Deering, American pianist. Both of these are artists of the first rank and there is every reason to believe that the occasion will be a most satisfying one. The program combines the virtues of the new and the old and includes the Brahms Sonata in E minor for Cello and Piano and a recent Sonata for Cello and Piano by Arnold Bax, receiving its first American performance on Wednesday evening.

Cambridge Concerts

This evening in Paine Hall, members of the Wellesley Madrigal Group and ten players from the brass section of the Pierian Sodality under Malcolm Holmes '28 will give an unusually interesting concert composed of fifteenth, sixteenth, and seventeenth century works which Mr. Holmes brought back with him last summer from Europe. Also tonight, the State Symphony Orchestra is giving a concert in Sanders Theatre which includes Brahma's Fourth Symphony.
