THE Conductor-Composer-'Celiist, Mancinelli
(1848-1921), for a few years directed the Covent Garden Orchestra, and afterwards that of the Metropolitan Opera House at New York. He wrote several Operas, an Oratorio and a Cantata (both of which were produced at the Norwich Festival), and incidental music to Cossa's play Cleopatra. From this we are to hear a March.
THERE are two monuments to Count Egmont, the patriot of the Netherlands ; one is the statue of him that was erected at Brussels some sixty years ago (which many listeners will have seen) ; the other is Goethe's tragedy bearing his name, for the stage presentation of which Beethoven wrote music-an Overture and a good many incidental pieces, which all finely match the dramatic story. The Overture is full of the pride and heroism of Egmont.
QIBELIUS, Finland's greatest eomposer, has had remarkable recognition from his countrymen. A year or two ago, on his sixtieth birthday, the President of the Republic personally invested him with the Grand Cross of the Order of the White Rose of Finland, and Parliament voted an increase in the pension of 50,000 marks, which he has received since 1915, to 100,000 marks. A national subscription raised in his honour amounted to 270,000 marks.
In such music as his tone poem Finlandia, the Kalevala Suite, and best. cf all in his seven Symphonies, we find the best-the virile, rugged Sibelius, using national idioms and often deriving the rhythms of his music from those of traditional Finnish folk-poems.
