ago is quite superfluous. In the cam-

this incident was thoroughly investi-

largest majority ever given to a sen-

A Review by Philip Brooks
They say that Igor Strawinsky has
a concerto for the piano in which thej
brasses and drums are used almost
exclusively. Such a rumor is fright-
ening. But the beautiful "Procession
of Princesses" and "Lullaby" of his
"Firebrand" suite leave an impres-
sion quite contrary to that fear. They
are exquisite.
The strange harmonies which were
to characterize his later works are

A Review by Margaret Ricker
One short hour and a half under

to make one realize how empty the
ordinary interpretation of the Yule-
tide season has become.
Mr. Christian was entirely capable
of doing complete justice to the ex-

and enjoyed was the Pastorale
