December 9, 1928
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

A “Hebrew Suite” for orchestra, composed by Nicolai Berezowsky was performed Thursday for the first time at the Philharmonic Symphony, Carnegie Hall, New York.

Mr. Berezowsky was born twenty-eight years ago in Russia, but has lived in the United States since 1922.

Mr. Berezowsky’s “Hebrew Suite” is in five movements–“Pastoral Scene,” “Berceuse,” “Love Song,” “Recitative” and “Dance.” It conveys, the composer explained, “various moods and is suggestive of scenes of Hebraic character and atmosphere.”

The suite was warmly received, and Mr. Mengelberg persuaded the composer to rise in his place among the violinists and acknowledge the audience’s tribute.
