Excerpt from Music Festival: Under the Direction of Walter Damrosch; For the Inauguration of "Music Hall" Founded by Andrew Carnegie, May 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 1891

The engagement of. The Russian composer Tschaikowsky adds a very pleasant and original feature to the Festival. He is the great est representative Russian composer living to-day, Sharing with Brahms and saint-saens the honors Of European fame. He will be heard in several Of his own best creations, among them a march, two a capella choruses written in the style Of Palestrina and Orlando di Lasso, his Suite no. 3 for orchestra, and his Concerto no. I for piano and orchestra. M. Tschaikowsky will also take a prominent part in the Festival, in conducting his own compositions. It will be the first time in America's musical history that a Russian composer will wield the baton. NO country in Europe, it may be added, has made such remarkable advance In music as Russia has during the last three or four decades. The seed-thought Of national music sown by Wagner in Germany has apparently taken permanent root in the great empire, and, with the traditional splendor of the music of the Greek church and the folk-songs of the people, has developed wonderful blossoms.
