Alban Berg Violin Concerto to Be Performed by Symphony in Sanders Theatre


Boston and New York have each heard Berg's last work, the Violin Concerto, performed by the Boston Symphony during the past fortnight. The reviews in both cities have been notably lukewarm, and a general impression of too much saccharine seems to have been received. It now remains for Cambridge to hear it in Sanders Theatre tomorrow evening and to add its own judgment. The Concerto aroused considerable comment abroad, partly because of its romantic origin and partly as a result of the controversial nature of the work itself which is a product of a leading light in the Schonbergian school. Also on the program are Mozart's Symphony in A major (K. No. 2 01) and Rimsky-Korsakov's "Scherazade."

Weekend Concerts

Dr. Koussevitzky has chosen Haydn's "Surprise Symphony" in G major to open the concerts in town this weekend. Following this with a decided contrast is the new Third Symphony of Nicolai Berezowsky. Mr. Berezowsky, who was born in Russia but has lived in the United States for several years, will conduct the work.

The second half of the program consists of numbers by Sibelius. The Finish composer's Seventh Symphony will be performed as well as "The Swan of Tuonela" and the ever-popular "Finlandia." Dr. Koussevitzky is always at his very best when conducting works by Sibelius and these concerts promise to be in keeping with the tradition.

It seems that the number of seats still available for the season of the Metropolitan Opera here in Boston has diminished to such an extent that there are only a few single tickets and a box or two left. Anyone who desires seats had better get in line immediately for this is the last call.
