ROBESON Assisted by Special Portland All-City High School Chorus Chester Duncan, Director of Music, Conducting INTERMISSION IV. Prayer of Boris (from "Boris Godounoff") Pride Within Four Walls The Flea Moussorgsky Moussorgsky gives us better than anyone else the direct initiation of the folk-song and the sublimation of this into art song. No composer in any country has been so thoroughly of the people in his sympathies and in his art. V. Ave Maria Schubert Intermezzo Granados-Cassado Danse rituelle du feu De Falla MISS ROCKMORE * Note on the Theremin: The Theremin is named after its inventor, the noted Russian scientist, Leon Theremin. It is unique in that the performer never touches the instrument while playing. The tone is produced when the performer enters an electro-magnetic field that is developed about the instrument. The pitch becomes higher or lower as the right hand approaches or moves away from the vertical rod; the volume of tone is controlled by the distance of the left hand from the metal loop.
