Opening night concert of the stadium concerts for this year we're certainly very happy to have as intermission guest the distinguished violinist. Elman the name of Michel men come to mind when any one ever thinks of the violin and so we're happy to have you here tonight Mr Adelman. I'm very happy to be here with you you know last year when the stadium season began you were the soloist in the Tchaikovsky concerto with the maestro and Dimitri Metropolis who is conducting this evening and that's not the first time that you were the opening night solo and no I've played several times at the stadium. The opening night as well as many other times tonight as many other times so I must say that. The stadium audience has been very loyal to me and well you have been loyal to them too. Well the artist likes his audience when the audience like seen it's a mutual agreement I think absolutely Well you know you have a very busy season always and what have you been doing this past few months I know you went last fall to Israel for quite a tour yes I had a very busy season in fact the first one of the I played in Europe and I also talking to an Israel yes Star tell us about the tour and Israel we're all very much interested in the concerts there because they seem to just eat up every all the music that can come their way while it's it's really remarkable how much music they are able to Upshaw up considering that the country is really tiny it is it's not much larger than one of our smaller states here you know it's going well. We know the Jack graphical situation so we don't have to go into that. But. After all it seems that it's not the size of the country but it's still desire of the people. To hear good music. That is important. Yes Well that's very true. Of course the smaller population there is able to absorb more concerts than the place of larger population in this country but there are so many people who live in Israel have come there from other countries which are very cultured musically I feel that's a great part of it don't you oh definitely a knowledge that people. There you know after come from various parts of Europe we know where they had good music your songs they want to transplant all the cultural things that they had in their own country where they live that they want to have it today Tuesday in Israel of course when I know you were there for about a month how many concerts did you give in that time. I played there fourteen concerts I see and and believe it or not eight of these fourteen concerts took place in Tel Aviv alone in Tel Aviv along yes in the new place and I'm happy to say that every concert was sold out sold out that I'm sure of and. I think it speaks a lot of the credit of the what you can step into the air at this well I don't know whether we all agree on that or not and then after Israel you moved on to Italy and France and then after a fifteen year absence you played again in Scandinavia Yes that was really quite a thrill to me because I always loved the Scandinavian countries and I made my appearance there when I was a youngster. When I started my career here in one thousand nine hundred four yes the Navy heroes are proud of the world that heard me when I was that young. Well they are indeed great music lovers and they certainly do love music in Iran it's most. Gratifying experience to play there because when they are enthusiastic then. I would say it's the most enthusiastic audience you. You can play to yes I've never been there but I'm certainly looking forward to it I was down by the way in South Africa in forty eight and they were still talking my friend Alex Turney asking down there who has the concerts will start talking about your tour there I think it was around one hundred thirty seven yes I was there I think in thirty seven or thirty eight I'm not quite sure I'm not. Too good on. Dates you know when it comes to my own career. But I certainly will never forget the wonderful experience I had there you know. It's a very beautiful country and. The audience are very fine and they turn out tremendously you know Johannesburg. To hear. The artist that they know of course you know. Was very pleasant because. And not it doesn't want doesn't like to play one program. The way we very often have to do in this country you know. Because. In this country would you if you get one of the recitals singing the ark you know it's as much as New York these days can stand I know I know but over there you know you can give seven or eight concerts in one city and you have to play seven or eight different programs now more interesting for you which is much more interesting to the Yes absolutely well I hope you'll be doing another tour down there before too long a grounding I go shooting with me now and I hope that something will come out of it well now we come to our own present time here at the close on stadium and next Monday night a week from tonight you're going to be again the soloist here in the Mendel song concerto Yes it meant a second chance of an PM and conducting and you know the Mendelssohn I would say was the most popular of all violin concertos Perhaps it's the counterpart of the Koskie for piano the Piano Concerto Why would you say the man goes on is so popular one it's not that the most melodic concerto there is and. Probably. This is a succession of notes in that. Is what people remember the people you know that's a very good idea and a very good answer is a matter of fact I think you have something there well that's next Monday night and while we won't be broadcasting we'll be up here to hear you anyway at that time now for your coming season and I know you're with Columbia artists now and you'll be doing a lot of the community concerts which they have all over thousand of in the United States and Canada where abouts are you playing besides I know you're playing with the New York Philharmonic next winter yes I am playing with it for the money you know and I know a few other talents but to tell you the truth entire schedule is not known to me not known to you yet well of course they're still working on them and they work on them right through and I will next fall I guess well we want to thank you very much for being up here tonight that the opening concert of the laws and Stadium Series and we hope to be hearing your next Monday as we said before and we hope that many of our listeners to our broadcast tonight will be here at that time I hope we'll have nice weather so that. Audience will be there well the only ones that we don't want we don't mind if it rains from now on for the next six weeks are Friday and Sunday night when there are no stadium concerts scheduled that we agreed on that happened. All right thank you again Michel and very much for playing here tonight thank you we are in the midst of an intermission now here at the song Stadium tonight and it gives us a chance to talk to you about some of the other programs that will be heard here during the coming few days. We do make a special announcement about tomorrow night's program as you well know last night's concert is being presented tonight because of the bad weather and so Demitri metropolises revised tomorrow night's program from the originally printed program which you saw in the paper on Sunday. And he will give in general the program that was scheduled originally for tonight you include the fantasy and Fugue in G. minor of Bach arranged by Metropolis for orchestra and then we shall hear the major metropolis both as conductor N.P.R. listeners he plays that the kata for piano and orchestra by respond and then the concert will conclude after the intermission with the symphony major number three the Eroica by Beethoven Thursday night brings us the first opera performance of the year here and we shall hear performance of the opera Carmen in concert form and in the casting distinguished singers will include Mildred Miller as Carmen Richard Tucker. Has done shows a lane Malbon as Mikhail and Frank Barra as going to. School a chorus under the direction if you are asked will also be heard and of course it is always a pleasure to hear Dimitri metropolis in the role of opera conductor we hope that not too distant day in New York we shall hear him in the pit of one of our great opera houses doing a performance on the stage but meantime we do enjoy having these opportunities of hearing him conduct in concert for operas here at Louis on stadium Saturday evening is again evening closing the first week of stadium concerts for this one nine hundred fifty two season under cost a lot it says the conductor and the soloist is Poles it's possible to sing lo here the general lock of the ship I don't know made from Rigoletto if they had to do it and off or sleeve from La Traviata of acting. She was also seeing the bell a song from Locke may have to leave for which she is so well known and her husband Andre faster than us we're going to the Roman carnival overture of barely goes the classical symphony of Prokofieff love Also Rob Bell and American in Paris of Gershwin we don't have much to sell on your city station being the only innocently on noncommercial station in the country when we say we don't have much to sell we don't have anything of commercial value to sell that we do have our stellar programs to tell you about one of the programs that we tell you about is a program which is usually heard at this time on Tuesday evenings that is from eight thirty to nine thirty which is not being heard tonight because you can with us here at Los and stadium for the opening night concert we speak of the program music for the connoisseur. Featuring David Randolph and at nine thirty on Tuesday evenings Dr wine bar brings you the reader's Almanac and of course this all starts off at seven o'clock as always on every night of the week with a masterwork dollar this is the kind of programming which has earned a W N Y C reputation which we are very proud and we hope you make a point of tuning to your city station every Tuesday evening even if we can't promise you an opening night concert by the stadium symphony orchestra every night in the year in having a talk with Miss Anderson before the concert began this evening we asked her what her plans are after a concert here with the stadium Symphony Orchestra tonight and she tells us that she is looking very much forward later in the summer to. Long Engagement of concerts in Scandinavia. And following that on her way back to the United States she's singing two concerts in London and then comes back to our home in Connecticut and is going to take a vacation for the month of November which of course we had to admit to our was a delightful month to spend in Connecticut. Following her tour in the United States which begins in December and takes her over a great portion of the country she told me she is going to make her first trip to Japan for a concert tour there and said she's anxiously awaiting the return of Helen trouble who has just been over in Japan to hear how she enjoyed it and so that they can compare notes or other they won't be able to compare them yet but that she thinks Miss Travel will give her a few ideas about programming it sounds so for. Miss Anderson's coming to her of Japan we also spoke today with Maestro Metropolis before the concert began and as we had no intermission guest scheduled for tomorrow night we asked him if he would be good enough to be their guest and as always graciously he consented so tomorrow night we shall hear an interview with Maestro Metropolis Now you is Mrs Guggenheim are coming up on the stage to speak and introduce tonight's guests. Hello everybody. I'm rather glad this was postponed because we had no opposition I suppose not of you knew that last night there was going to be a fight did you. Anyway this is not my night to speak to you all but there is a slight mistake in the program it says advanced programs which should have been next week's programs and it gives this week's programs twice next Monday Mr Monterey will be with us but on this week you'll all see that next Thursday night we're going this Thursday night we're going to have common with a perfectly wonderful cast and a young common called Mildred Miller who will be the sensation of the season so I hope you will all be here. Yes it's there Thursday night I wanted to see if perhaps by some chance that damn Echo would leave the house. Next Monday night Mr Bush album and we'll play the mental son. Chatto and on when a Thursday night he will be a Monday Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday of next week on Thursday night July say Oscar Levant is coming as usual. And if you all watch Sunday's papers you will get the advanced program I don't know I want to introduce to you gentleman who has been for twelve years the president at City College the College of the city of New York and he is now leaving because Dr Wright Dr Harriett right. Ladies and gentlemen there's no particular reason why I should do anything more than to say welcome to you on behalf of City College we've enjoyed cooperating with the armor all of the known when I say this we I am not talking about her right all the way back thirty odd years with men to go going to harm or in this enterprise but should it colleges always considered itself a part of this and enterprise and we particularly call attention to it as an example of our desire to cooperate with community in every way that education and culture can and can bring forth make possible. Money go to an arm or says it I'm going to say a word tonight because I am an outgoing president. I know whatever an outgoing president is nevertheless I would rather say this we welcome you and I hope to support this enterprise in years to come because it is one of the most valuable things culturally that New York City at. City College pays its tribute to its claims its place in cooperating in it thank you. And now. I have the right to introduce to you all his honor the man. May have been sent in full attack. Thanks. Mrs Guggenheim or ladies and gentlemen tonight's program opens the thirty fifth successive season of New York City's justly famous stadium Constance it is a privilege for me as man to bring words of greeting to this very important meeting earlier this evening my astro to meet free metropolis. And marry him Anderson launched this great orchestra on another season of music under the stars performances that have brought the world's finest musical entertainment to countless thousands of New Yorkers and visit times to our city. And what is even more important. The finest artists of the Opera Theater and concert stage and from radio and television have entertained this and will again bring their God given talents to the people of the city of New York this year at just the number no admission Jocz this undercurrent in an interrupted program through to world was through the oppression is and the critical postwar periods is a tribute both to the efficient management of stadium concerts incorporated and to the civic social and business groups in our community who support them year in and year out New York City indeed was fortunate in having a man like Adolph Louison present this wonderful ampitheater the City College and it was also fortunate in having had his son the late Sam A Louison and sponsor and guiding genius of this great cultural and recreational enterprise and today we are fortunate in having as the chairman of stadium concerts Mrs Charles says Guggenheim or New York City's be levied many. As I said last year and repeat this year many does a man sized job as only a woman can do it what a driving force she is and raising the funds that are necessary to bring you this fine entertainment all she acts in return is that you are ten just as often as you can and bring along as many of your family and friends as possible. Nothing pleases many more than a nightly full house so that the maximum number of people may benefit from these concerts Incidentally it helps many pay the bells this year marks the thirty fifth in which Mrs Guggenheim or has been associated with stadium concerts I know that I speak for you who are gathered here and for every New Yorker when I tell you that the city is grateful to her for her long years of devoted service to the grand organization that makes these concerts possible thank you very much.
