A 18 THE BROOKLYN DAILY EAGLE, NEW YORK, FRIDAY, APRIL 2G, 1920. Music of By EDWARD The League of Composers Concludes the Season With a Seventeenth Century Opera and a Modern Ballet. A"' T THE Metropolitan Opera House last evening, before an audience astonishing size and brilliance, the League ot Composers dts- tlcned the stage productions Tnnrrrdl e Clorinda" and Strawtuky's "Lrs Noces," with which It brougnt its activities for the present season to an end. Both works were, In a certain, novelties: the Monteverdi opera (to employ a convenient but inexact term of definition) had not before been given In New York and "Les Noces" was familiar only to those who had heard It In concert form in Aeolian Hall on a February evening of 1926, under the auspices of the International Composers Guild. The performances last evening, given for the benefit of the National Music League, enlisted the services of a distinguished company of musicians, singers, dancers and mimes. The "Combattimento" was conducted by Werner Josten, played by a string ensemble selected from the Philharmonic-Symphony Orchestia, sung by Jeanne Palmer Soudelkine, Marie Milllette and Charles Kull-man and enacted in pantomime by Edith Burnett and Samuel A. Eliot Jr. "Les Noces" was conducted by Mr. Stokowski and the forces under his command Included Nina Koshetz, soprano; Sophie Braslau, contralto; Gabriel LeonolT, tenor, and Moshe Rudinov, baritone, as well as a chorus, percussion players from the Philharmonic - Symphony Orchestra and four pianists: Marc Blltzstein, Aaron Copland, Louis Gruenberg and Frederick Jacobl. Upon the stage the ballet was led by Valen-tlna Kashouba, Jullctta Mcndoz, Emily Floyd, Rose Marshall, Rina Nikova, George Volodln, Harold Hccht, Allan Wayne, Alexander Zaroubine, Oscar Reale and Andrew Salama. The choreography was directed by Elizaveta Anderson-Ivant-zorT and the production designed by Serge Soudeiklne. The curtain, advertised for 8:45, rose on the "Combattimento" at 9:05 and fell on "Les Noces" at 10:30. Monteverdi's "Combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda," written In 1626 and performed In Venice at the house of the composer's patron, j Girolamo Mocenlgo, is not, properly speaking, an opera, and the use of the term may be excused only for the sake of convenience, since another, more exact in its description of this curious work, is not available. The text, derived from the "Jerusalem Delivered" of Tasso, is sung by narrator and two other voices, to whom are assigned the words of the protagonists, while the action of the drama is performed In pantomime. The "Combattimento" does not, however, owe Its eminence among Monteverdi's works to the Idiosyncrasies of Its form but historically to the accident that It Inspired the Invention of a new style of musical speech and the Introduction of the Instrumental tremolo and artistically to its Intrinsic musical beauty. In the prefaca to his work Monteverdi explains the considerations that led him to originate the agitated recitative and accompaniment, which only, he believed, could properly express the emotions of anger and combat. The result of his endeavors to sole the problems presented by his reflections and the study of Plato was the development of appropriately agitated or martial rhythms and the Introduction into the instrumental acompaniment to the voice parts of the tremolo and the pizzicato. Since the "concitato" style and the Instrumental tremolo vere unheard of previous to the composition of the "Combattimento." it Is not difficult for us to appreciate the astonishment which the work created and to realize Its historical Importance which It assumed. But if our Interest In this precious fragment depended wholly upon the novelty of Its style, considered from the point of view of the 17th Century, we would not long be detained by it as a work of art. Today we may realize that the setting of the tragic combat between Tancred and Clorinda must have amazed its first audience by the audacity of Its rhythms and; its instrumentation, but we cannot ourselves be similarly stirred by these things. It Is rather to other por tions of the "Combattimento" that wn turn, forced to acknowledge, by the dignity of the Invocation to the Night and by the touching eloquence of the scene of Clorinda's death, the genius of this musician, w ho so simply and yet so profoundly expressed the emotions of the human heart. 1 RESTAt'RANTS MANHATTAN. for yourself why so many prefer that 50(5 luncheon or that wonderful $1.00 table d'hote dinner 0 Hotel Bristol 1X9 West 4tth f , Now York City RESTAURANTS BROOKLYN.

The performance last evening was admirable. One might have wished for a more Inspired delivery of the vocal parts, especially those of the narrator, and of the few nobly pathetic phrases allotted Clorinda, but Mr. Josten's sensitive recreation of the score and the simplicity with which the stage production was planned and executed left little to be desired. It was otherwise with "Les Noces." Discussion of this work In its musical aspects is superfluous, since the score is a purely cerebral fabrication, devoid of any merit that is not inherent in the virtuosity with which Strawinsky Invariably expresses himself. The description of "Les Noces" supplied by the composer runs as follows: "Russian choreographic scenes with singing and music' and the work is a set ting for solo voices, chorus, pianos and percussion instruments, of the primitive Russian marriage ritual. Tne stage action lollows In an ob vious manner the program suDDlled by the text, but the character of the music prohibits its treatment along conventional lines. Last evening one was cisappointea oy Mr. Souvel kine's setting and costumes (perhaps Decause tuey were poorly lighted and exnimtea on a stage lar too large for them) and bv the rather tedious and unimaginative choreography. So elaborate a production should have anoraea a greater satisfaction to tne oenoider, lor it was, after all, upon the spectacle of "Les Noces" that one relied to relieve the Intellectual fatigue Induced bv the music. Thus, though it was "Les Noces" that the League, advertising its entertainment, sought to stress as the more important of the two preset tations, it was the "Combattimento' that rewarded the large and eager audience ior its attendance.

We're like that, you know always ready to discuss situations before they arise. Anticipation is the word. Rian was all ears.

He was Just bubbling over with shwr Joy. the joy that can only come to those who have worked hard and thereby earned time in which to play. We were leisurely smoking our respective pipes, occasionally peering out the window at Manhattan's skyline, a diadem of dazzling gems that eventide, and chatting about newspaper assignments. a Now it happens that Rian has been assigned to "cover" Europe, He has carte blanche, and can do much as he pleases, which, by the way, is exactly and precisely a self-imposed doctrine with him. Somehow or other, we rather ieel that Rian is a city vagabond with a mighty interesting job as a sideline. He's one man who really gets about town. Hours are nothing to him. His race ts too swift for our easy and studied gait, but his rhythm is In harmony with the tempo of the day. And that's what counts in this year of grace! He possesses verve and nerve. If It happens to be a first night, Rian will bu there; if it happens to be a first edition, Rian will read it; if it happens to be a new night club's initial bow, Rian will be on hand. And he'll tell in straightforward language his Impressions of show, book or revue. There's no flfty-fif tying -in his dally stint! a All of this you already know. But it's so apparent that we thought we'd bring It to your attention for fear that the obvious would be. as it so often is, quite overlooked. Knowing Rian as intimately as we do, we asked him the purpose of his trip. "Oh," he said, "my editor want me to get a few Impressions of the Old World for The Eagle." An adventure, in plain words. As we view it, he's going to do a little vagabonding on the continent for those who are interested in him and those who like his style and manner of presentation, it set us thinking. "Well," we replied, "that's an opportunity for us." "Us," he shouted, "you don't mean to say vou're going to accompany me?" "Waif a minute, wait a minute." we urged. "You Jump to conclusions far too fast for us. What we wanted to convey was the thought that you could o us a service while abroad." "Agreed. I'll do anything you'll ask. Shoot." a As many of our own clients know, we've always been wanting to take a trip overseas. We'd like to get a look at our U. S. A. from the outside, we'd like to verify a few of the stories we've heard about things and places over there and we'd like to get a taste of Old World life. Someday we may, perhaps. Meanwhile we must be content with the friendly offices of a first rate reporter who'll carry out, to the letter, the assignments we have in- mind. The first thing we asked Rian to do was to save us an empty claw of the lobster in the Boulllabaise Marseillaise which he is certain to have served when he lands in Paris, for we, like most of our nationals, have that perverted Yankee trait of always wanting souvenirs. Our next request was to prove if Mussolini is just .a god reared by printer's ink, mock elections and Fascist rifles. This was followed by all but a prayer to find out if the Leaning Tower of Pisa really leans, If spa- AMUSEMENTS BROOKLYN.

And while making it, he will decide whether he likes French or American Cointreau best.

While In London life's going to look up Charley Murray for us, and while in Berlin he'll tender our regards to Macon Miller Sam-atofsky, American newspaperwoman, who was reared and trained in Brooklyn. Of course, he has promised to bring back an original edition of a Joseph Conrad, which he will purchase in London. But before he sails for home he has sworn on his honor to present himself before the American Bar in Paris, order up a genuine Manhattan Cocktail and drink deep to the health of his less fortunate friends across the sea!
