Mr StokowBkl could but fall short of
Symbolizing tho vital thrill of joy which
h-xi been communicated to tho thrco
thousand and moro fortunato auditors of
tho work for an hour and a half (before,
eoent and conquering. Mr. Stokowskl laid
down his baton. Tho clamorous cn-
' thuslasm of the nudlenco and of tho thrco
treat choruses which had taken part, was
memorable and moving. Almost as much
' as tho symphony lthclf tho final circum
stances contributed to tho overwhelming
felicity of tho occasion. Whatever olso
may te said, and much must bo said,
the encircling halo of Rtory cannot be
" removed from tho head of any Individual
wjio participated in tho work. Tho vis

that they left no furrowed brow, no hard

In facllltyt In case. In tho generous Bweep
of self-sacrlflcinR cndeaor, was faultless.
Behind orchestra and soloists thero roso
tier on tier of Indistinguishable heads,
mysteriously fringed In white and black,
and these tiers roso and receded In rc
sponso to mystic bcckonlngs In waves ns
' rhythmic as music. So tho symphony, in
Its physical accoutrements was mounted In
, beauty, and to that beauty each ncces-
' Bory paid Its due, down to tho bizarre
" trumpets In tho high boxes which blew,

,' brazen sounds of exultation and magnin-
considerations nnd perplexities posl.
: tlvcly press In on tho consciousness of tho
a Judgment of tho work. Yet before they
I ft assert themselves some things must bo
nfil. T.i InclfTniHi.-'iTit nirntn hni'n lionn ot
forth the names ot those, of a small num
ber of those, who gave their labor that
this symphony might bo produced. It 'Is
hardly necessary In this plnco to mention
each with a meed of praise. In groups
one may speak of tho choruses, splendidly
willing and capable ; or tne soloists, each.
lrreocably dedicated to a fine artistic
purpose; finally, of tho orchestra, which
rose to tho climax of Its career under tho
Inspiration of tho very difficulties which
Jowercd and waylaid It. Rut there Is no
group In which Mr. StokowMd belongs.
For him something especlnl and apart
must bo, said Hesct by fears and doubts,
dominating the thousand who were es
sential.to his success, brushing aside with
an 'Impetuous and tyrannic will tho Im
must bo Remembered that tho muslo gives
meaning to tho text, not otherwise.
The first part Is n tremendous chant
of yearning, desolate, nt first, but rising
through ocrenlty and confldenco to as
Burnnco. The first theme of the synv
phony, the golden thread ot tho whole
work which shimmers nnd Illuminates,
Is In tho Invocation. Immediately It li
made wordly, Is tnken from Heaven and
reduced nnd related to earth. So that
It Is not light for "every thought" that
Is asked, but light for every sense, add
the love In every henrt Is n recognlzablo
nnd human thing. That Is why the first
part of tho symphony nlmost renders tho
second unintelligible. The Gloria at Its
end Is more firm, more exalted, than tho
mystic chorus which Is Its later counter
part, Mahler's was a soul harassed by hu
manity. Tho tyranny of things, tho
brutlshness of people, oppressed nnd In
sulted him. Image his yenrnlng nnd
deslro In whatever form, tho truth Is
that ho found them In the creation of
music. Tim light and lovo ho seeks nro
Implicit In his score, nnd It In only when
ho philosophizes In muslo that ho Is
made blind again. The hymn to tho Holy
Spirit was answered, even In those free
sounding blnsts of tho trumpets. His
heart, like Pascal's, had Its reasons which
tho reason could not understand. In
another time, were ho more religious or
moro humanist, tho "Venl. Creator" would
bnvo stood alone, fulfilled and solitary
Not without the book nro these words
written. Tho motto and mcnnlng of Matt
er's Ufa are In tho words from tho Note
book of Florestan and Uuscblus, "Intelli
gence errs, but not sense." Hurely the
senses did not err In tho llrnt part. Suiely
intelligence wnmierea far in tho second.
GOETHE AND MAHLUIt.
What ono hns against tho musical set
ting of tho scene frctn Faust Is that It
reproduces so many of tho faults of that
work. Tho music -nt least should liavo
been written by ono of that cherished rnco
which nlonq, knows how to make multi
tudes meaningful, which can cast a ray
of spiritual light through promiscuity and
Incoherence. Tho mystic speculation of
Faust 'Is swathed In strange garments,
nnd tho muslo which Mahler has given It
is no moro clear, no moro significant.
Henco the sentimentality which must pans
for feeling, henco the gesture which mus
pass for act. What do nil the Involutions
of coutinpuntnl Ingenuity Intend If not the
confession that tho ono clear, clean word
cannot bo found. For It Is not found.
Thero comes nt the end. with n beauty or
feeling, a refinement of delicate percep
tion, the soft sweet music of the mystlo
hymn. It la soft and sweet, but It neither
explains nor suggests. It casts no light on
mystery, no glamour on reality Certainly
It Is not the appointed end and roward roi
nil the pages of lackadaisical music and
mummery which havo gone before. It Is
not a climax, because tho climax and tho
npotheosls of deslro has long boon stated
Mahler camo of a race which. In tho
progress of tho centuries, Is not mystical,
but Idealistic, Almost ns tho Greek It
accepts reality: almost as tho Gaul It
transfigures reality. So Mahler could un
derstand tho monk who, under tho veil of
mysticism, j earned for a beauty which
was real. Ho could havo understood tho
Faust who sought n beauty not in Helen's
eyes. But he opuld not understand tho
poet who, under tho .semblance, of life,
sought n beauty ho could not senso and
yearned, not for Helen, but for tho eter
nal feminine, to draw him upward
Ho gavo himself up to tho Goethe who
was not nlways great. Ho forgot that
Goethe himself had said: "It Is only
within limitations that tho master can
show himself." There wore no limitations
In the second Fnust, and there are none
In the music which Mahler composed. It
is beautiful now nnd again. But tho In
spiration of tho first part Is lacking. Tho
themes reveal what tho first concealed,
a lack of spllghtly Inventiveness. Tho or
chestration Is a miracle, but It Is a mlraclo
of tho mind. And Mahler himself was
a mlraclo of tho spirit who should not
havo been so traduced. G. V. S.

Titanic, as Napoleonic as that of Mahler
himself, Yet In tho long year which camo
before this performance Mr, Stokowskl

conceived each separato part of the work,
foregoing tho grand manner, hardening
himself against every seduction of trick
ery, driving out every temptation. He Is
' young and fervent and successful. This
once, In a crisis not to be questioned, be
set himself untold limitations, and within
' thoso limitations ho was superb. Mr. Sto-

he has sacd himself. And It Is slncerly to
