Download PDF for this date

Two distinguished composer-pianists will be presented by Henry Cowell in the third of his series of symposiums on Creative Music Today at the New School for Social Research next Wednesday night.

Ernst Toch, Austro-German composer, will make his first public appearance since arriving in New York two weeks ago as an exile from Germany.

He will explain some of the aesthetic principles governing his own compositions and will give a piano performance of one of them.

Adolph Weiss, American composer and pupil of Arnold Schoenberg, will discuss his own music and that of Schoenberg, playing the works discussed.
