year has led the Philharmonic-Central
Concert company, to bring- him there

Beethoven sonata in D minor, Op. 31,
the Brahms variations on a theme by
Paganini, the Liszt fantasia on Moz-
art's "Don Giovanni," and a Chopin
group embracing the E major Noc-
turne, the B flat minor Scherzo, the A

urka and a Polonaise.

a Colby college graduate who spent
several years in quest of funds nec-

drew its support six years later. Al-
