The "Pictures at an Exhibition."
We would say that they are pictures
which come to life in a dream. They
were more convincing than any pro-
gram music which we have ever
heard. Moussorgsky and Ravel have
accomplished the seemingly impos-
sible feat of translating from graphic
to musical art and actually adding
something in the process. There was
an active, living quality, which no
picture could possess. The sounds, the
movements the feeling of the picture
were there. It was but a trifle to re-
create the sight of it in imagination.
In Moussorgsky we find a paradoxical
combination of the objectivity, spon-
taneity and naivete of Mozart with
the fertile, fantastic, grotesque imag-
ination of the Russian, of sophistica-
tion with earthiness. Such music re-
quires a perfection of performance
which perhaps only the Boston Or-
chestra of those in the world today
could give.
The response of the audience to this
concert would seem to be final proof
of the thesis that when the demands
of the most idealistic listeners, who
may be assumed to be in the minority,
are satisfied to the fullest extent, tie
majority also are convinced. The
growing standards of the Choral
Union series through past years are
evidence that the officials of the Uni-
- versity Musical Society have been
conscious of this ideal. It is sym-
