Scope and content

The reviewer is identified only by the initials IUE. This was the sixth symphonic gathering of the Russian Musical Society. It began with Mozart's Jupiter Symphony, a punctilious performance which failed to catch the spirit of Mozart's music. Also on the programme were Dvorak's Scherzo-Capriccio, and a symphonic poem, Nochnoe shectvie [The night procession], a typical French work by the young French composer, Rabaud. The soloist was the violinist Adolph Brodsky, an artist who has been long known in Moscow and who taught for four years at the Moscow Coservatoire in the time of Rubinstein. Now for fifteen years he has been principal of the conservatoire in Manchester. Brodsky played the concerto dedicated to him by Tchaikovsky. The reviewer tells of how the concerto had originally been dedicated to Auer, but was first played in Vienna in 1881 by Adolph Brodsky, when the critic Hanslick said that the music stank. Brodsky wrote to Tchaikovsky that he had taken two years to master the concerto. At this concert he received tremendous applause and then played Tartini's Devil's Trill.
