Sizeable audiences continue to attend the concerts of the Philharmonic-Symphony Orchestra at the Lewisohn Stadium, 138th Street and Amsterdam Avenue.
Tonight’s program, beginning at 8:30, contains well-known favorites chiefly, with the possible exception of Smetana’s simple tone poem, “Die Moldau,” wherein appear themes developed in that Czech composer’s “The Bartered Bride,” and Sibelius’ symphony No. 1. Other numbers are Bach’s Prelude, Chorale and Fugue, as arranged by Abert; Wagner’s Forest Murmurs from Siegfried, Chabrier’s Espana Rhapsody, and that encore number, “The Bumble-Bee.”
Tomorrow evening’s concert signalizes the last appearance of the season of Willem Van Hoogstraten, and includes Beethoven’s magnificent fifth symphony, Tschaikowvsky’s pulsing tone-poem, Romeo and Juliet, a Strauss waltz, Voices of Spring, and the Tannhauser overture of Wagner.
