AGAINST THE-ENCORE. : -" :A'- symphony concert consists; of '-' carefully studied musical unity. On6e %piece must harimoniously fit with the .others. One. composition must be cho 'son w hth regard.to :the one : before: it anidtthe- one 'that-follows it. :Tlio con =ductor who makes-up a Iprogramme not only seeks for the instinctive: harmony of ':each.work thit he selects, but he also tries to bring- one composition intohar mony .with all the .others on his pro .gramme. Any strange element, there fore,.accidentaly. inserted, such as an encore, between the harmoniously ar raged compositions necessarily causes'a dissonance and upsets the artistic pro portions. Being a sincere admirer il art, and therefore of.proportions, I-am' always anxious to eliminate every per Ssoial element, such as a desire for per -sonal success, wheni I play with an ofr-: :chestra in a symphonic concert, and do §my:;,bst to help the artistic cause of : the. conoert as a whole.-Josef Hoff :mann.:
