PHILHARMONIC SOCIETY. The season was inaugurated on Monday evening, when a programme of unvaried excellence was provided. The HanoverBquare Booms were perhaps not so well attended as is usual on the opening night. The unfavourable stato of the weather was sufficient, indeed, to have thinned the audience far more; but the lovers of good music are not to be daunted by Eurus and Boreas, even when they deal their fiercest blasts, and spout their densest rains. The following was the selection :—
Symphony, "The Seasons," in B minor Spohr.
Song, "A qnesti avventneri infnmi" (II Seraglio) ... Mozart.
Concerto, violin 'Mendolssolin.
Scena (Dcr Freischfttz) Weber.
Overture (Egraont) Beethoven.
Symphony, ** Jupiter" Mozart.
Duet, "8e la vita" (Semiraniide) < Rossini.
Overture (Obcron) Weber,
Of the symphony of Spohr, we have more than once spoken at length. It is enough to say in this place, that it is not one of the most inspired works of the great master. In the movement illustrative of "Spring " there are many traces of his happiest manner and some of his brightest thoughts. The movement representing "Autumn," is everywhere spirited, graceful, and characteristic. "Summer," however, is depicted in too monotonous a tone, and "Winter"—with which, by the way, the symphony commences—is too uniformly sombre and monotonous. The execution, considering the difficulties presented, was marvellous, and Professor Bennett and his orchestra covered themselves with honour.
The violin concerto, as'performed by Herr Becker, was in many respects entitled to the very highest commendation. Exceptions, nevertheless, might be taken in several instances; the reading generally was not in strict keeping with the directions of the composer. Herr Becker, nevertheless, played so splendidly, that he was recalled at the end and received with enthusiasm.
The execution of Mozart's symphony and Beethoven's overture was inimitable in every way, both performances being received with tumultuous applause, and the overture to Oberon was a splendid finale.
Signor Belletti sang the superb song from Mozart's too much neglected opera with faultless taste. Mdlle. Louise Michal, a Swedish prima donna of reputation in her own country, gave the grand scena from Der Freischiitz with great power and facility, but in too studied and artificial a manner to create any unusual effect. So capable a voice as hers is not heard every day. The duet from Semiramide was mora suited to the gentleman's style than that of the lady.
MUSICAL SOCIETY OF LONDON.
The third concert was given on Wednesday, and was alike characterised by excellence and variety, as the following selection will show.
Overture, (The Isles of Fingal) Mendelssohn.
Air, "Jours de mon enfance," (Pre" aux Cloros) Herold.
Pianofortes and Orchestra Dussek.
Overture, (Lurline) Vincont Wallaoe.
Sinfonin Eroica (No. 3), Op. 55 Beethoven.
Duo, "Di qual cittd seitu?" (L'Etoile du Nord) Meyerbeer.
Overture, (Gustavo) Auber.
Oonduotor—Mr. Alfred Mellon.
The features of the performance were the Symphony and Mendelssohn's overture^neither of which we ever heard executed with grander effect. The overture, although holding by no means the enviable position of the first piece in the programme, was encored in a tumult of applause, and repeated with in
creased effect. Mr. Wallace's brilliant and dramatic orchestral prelude to Lurline, too, was played with astonishing power and precision. Not so the overture to Auber's opera, in which the first movement was taken too quick, and the last too slowinnovations which, in both instances, were disastrous to the effect intended by the composer. The Symphony Concertante of Dussek—too rarely heard in public—was acceptable on all accounts. The whole work is interesting ; but the finals is as inspiration. Messrs. Charles Salamau and Lindsay Sloper were the pianists, and vied with each other and with the orchestra iu zeal and energy.
The vocal music was excellent. Miss Augusta Thomson sang the very difficult air, from H6rold'sopera, with great brilliancy; Mr. Santley gave a bold and vigorous reading of the masterly scena from Benedict's unpublished opera; and both artists gave the utmost capital effect to the admirable duet from Meyerbeer's Etoile du Nord.
The fourth concert is announced for the 9th of May, when Mr. G. A. Macfarren's new cantata, Christmas, will be given.
