AGAINST THE ENCORE. A symphony com.'orl. consists of ;i carefully studio'.! musical unity , OIK piece must harmoniously fit with tlio others.

Tho con ductor who makes up a programme not only soeks for tho instinctive harmony of each work that ho selects, but lie also tries to bring one composition into har mony with all tho others on his pro f;ramine.
