Ernest Bloch, one of the best-known of living composers, was born in Switzerland, but has been a resident of this country for the best part of twenty-five years. He is at present associated with the University of California, and lives on the Oregon Coast. The Sonata on this program was first published in 1936. Luis Gianneo, born in Buenos Aires in 1897, received his musical education in his native city, and is at present Conductor of the symphony orchestra at Tucuman. The title Vidalita is a nonsense refrain like bye-o. Paul Hindemith, now in exile from his native Germany, is one of the leading figures in the music of the last two decades, and has composed prolifically for all mediums. He is at present a member of the Music Department of Yale University. Maurice Ravel (187S-1937), probably best-known for the rather uncharacteristic Bolero, brought to his many piano pieces the same delicate sense of color that is found in his more elaborate orchestral works. Jacques de Menasce, now a resident of New York, was born in Austria in 190$, and was a student of Joseph Marx and Alban Berg. The selections by Bloch, Gianneo, and de Menasce were played by Mr. Abramowitsch in the Festival of the International Society for Contemporary Music, held last August in Berkeley, California.
