Studio program and ehurch announcements. , and workers most A L When Georges Enesco, the fa mous Rumanian violinist-composer- conductor steps on th stage of the Auditorium theater, Oakland, next Tuesday night to resume the activi ties of the seckeis-uppenneimer management for the new year and to thrill the capacity crowd that will assemble to greet him. he will have as his musslcal background the entire San Francisco Symphony Orchestra of 100 players under the direction of Alfred Hertz, and a program that will live long In the musical memory of Eastbay audiences is sure to result No greater authority in his art exists today than Enesco, whose compositions rank him among the great-of all time, and whose virtuosity has stamped him as one of the foremost of present-day players; To hear so big a figure as Enesco play so great a work as the Mozart seventh concerto, under so skillful a baton as Hertz's, and supported' by so fine a body of men as the San Francisco players, alone is a treat of unusual worth, but In addition there will be the complete Brahms second sym phony, Saint-Saens glorious ' epio, "Phaeton" by the orchestral body, and a virtuoso group including Corelll's "Folies D'Espagne" and Ravel's "Tzigane" played by Enesco and Sanford Schlussel, his pianist. Truly a toothsome feast for those who attend, and, according to pres ent indications, as many will attend as . can comfortably squeeze into the theater. The inclusion of the two symphony programs on the popular Seckels-Oppenheimer series has proved a gratifying move to East bay music lovers, and the joining of Enesco as special feature to the first of these events has been a managerial master-stroke; Hertz's second program comes on January 31, when AVagner and Tschalkow- sky will be featured.
