Despite a very small output as a composer, Mr. Sessions' career has been a long one, and he is at present regarded by many of the younger modernists as a mentor and musical theorist of importance. Of the four composers represented in this series Mr. Sessions, Roy Harris, Aaron Copland and Walter Piston he Is the only one who has not at one time or another studied with the well-known Paris composition teacher, Nadia Boulanger.

Mr. Sessions' abilities as a composer were represented by Three Chorale Preludes for two pianos (1926), a Concerto for violin and or Most films involving the romance of a blue-blooded young man and his humble sweetheart concentrate on the pre-marital aspects of that problem, the difficulties to be overcome before young love has Its way. But in "Splendor," which opened yesterday at the Rivoli Theater, we tee the effects of such a marriage, with Miriam Hopkins and Joel McCrea as the principal sufferers. Brightened by Rachel Crothers' rational approach to the problems, her talent ior neat dialogue, and a superior performance by Miriam Hopkins, "Splendor" becomes a whole that is somewhat more than the sum of its parts. These parts, as Miss Crothers sees them, are the plight of Brighton "Splendor" A United Artists picture.

And Hecht and MacArthur, the two film writers, get a dose of their own medicine in "Boy Meets Girl" which opens Wednesday at the Cort. The third hit possibility is "Weep for the Virgins," which the Group Theater brings to the 46th Street Theater Friday. There are, in all, eight premieres scheduled. At any rate, the coming week looks more promising than the past, which produced only one worthwhile piece, the Theater Union's Mother." James Roosevelt served on the Jury in "Night of January 16" last week "Swing Your Lady" will be withdrawn tonight upon the conclusion of its week in Washington for important changes. The New York opening, we are informed, will occur during the week of Dec.

But then came the Allegro with its agi tated clarion call, and the pianist's classic meticulosity again shrouded the impassioned motion of the Ap.

passionata. The audience, now grown large and cordial, demanded an encore and heard a superlative reading of Beethoven's Rondo in major. In the cooler flame of Brahms Mr. Sheridan's artistry ro.e to heights. An Intermezzo and two Capriccios were performed with great delicacy and "lyric skill, and the Sonata Opus 5 in minor, though left to tired hands, received a signal interpretation.

This reviewer's impressions were gained from the Chorale Preludes and the Violin Concerto, which, being the earliest but one, and the latest, compositions on the program, may, he supposes, be considered a fair cross section of the composer's work. The first named work consisted of three tonal compositions, of familiar type, in which late seventeenth cen tury rhythmic and melodic are used with a meticulour disregard for seventeenth century contrapuntal usages.

The second was purely atonal, and very pianistic in feeling in spite of its being origi nally conceived for violin and orchestra. While both works were consistent in style and obviously the fruit of careful cerebration, they belong to a type of music that is becoming more and more evidently of purely academic importance, in teresting perhaps to those who compose It, but of little significance to the musical public. Nor do I think that time will prove lirst Impressions to be mistaken. For 30 years these idioms have been familiar to those who take an interest in "modern" music, and their effect today is no less artificial and sterile than it appeared at the outset. The Symphony and orchestral part of th? Concerto were played in transcriptions by Lehman Engel and the composer respectively.

The performers of the evening were Vivian Fine and Mr. Sessions, pianists; Harriet Eells, mezzo-soprano, and Serge Kotlarsky, violinist. Boston Symphony Making its first visit to Brooklyn at the Academy of Music last night, the Boston Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Serge Kous-sevitzky repeated Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, which it had played at Carnegie Hall on Thursday, but substituted the Overture to "Eg-mont" for Beethoven's First Symphony. The Ninth was given with the same assisting artists: Jeanette Vreeland, soprano; Elizabeth Wy-sor, contralto; Paul Althouse, trn- or; Julius Huehn, bass, and the chorus of the Schola Cantorum. I mentioned yesterday that the performance of the First Symphony on Thursday had given me the impression that Mr.

Koussevitzky had been excited too much by the occasion. The performance of the Ninth on Thursday gave me the same impression. I might begin with the general character of certain movements the impression of forcing and driving that produced vehemence instead of power in the first movement, for example. And the detail also betrayed a lack of inner repose and control. Thus the TUNNEL" Evans Hsjlon Vinson PLUS EXIT ITsX Ed TONITE! 1, INj BROOKLYN! oat.

But in place of advantage (Ruth Weston) he chooses love (Miriam Hopkins). Determined to make the best of a bad thing, his mother (Helen Westley) impresses upon the wife the necessity for aiding her son's career, citing the opportunity that he has given up in marrying her. ulnce his career depends on the favor of a man (Paul Cavanagh) who really has his eye on Miss Hopkins all along, it is not difficult to anticipate the domestic difficulties that ensue when she for- gets her pride and intrigues for 1 the success demanded by the family. Eventually, after a bitter part-' lng and a siege of separation, the romance is reconstituted on a new basis, with the young man denouncing his financial aspirations. He goes to work, Instead, for a newspaper as the approach to the writing he has always wanted to do.

Miss Crothers' dialogue is considerably more apt in the superficial chatter that forms the background for the emotional involvements than In the climaxes themselves, but Miss Hopkins imparts her own fervor to the most ordinary of her speeches. The principal result of is to emphasize the weakness of Mr. McCrea more, one imagines, than the scenarist intended. An excellent east that includes Billie Burke, Katherine Alexander, Ruth Weston and Arthur Treacher, as well as Miss Westley, diverts the spectator's attention from the fairly obvious manipulation oftthe material. The film has been handsomely set and dressed and Elliott Nugent's direction is altogether skillful.

'Mutiny' at the Mel. "Mutiny on the Bounty," tin MOM production with Charles Laughton, Clark Gable. Franchot Tone, Dudley Dimes, Donald Crisp. Stanley Fields, Eddie Qutllan and Spring Byington. Screen play by Talbot Jennings, Jules Furth-man and Carey Wilson from the novel by Charles Nordhoff and James Norman Hill.

At Loew Metropolitan. Distinguished by the superb act ing of Charles Laughton, the fine direction of Frank Lloyd and one of tin best movie scripts in years, "Mutiny on the Bounty" moved into Loew's Metropolitan yesterday, while it continues its record-breaking career on Broadway. By any standard, one of the most picturesque and beautifully photographed of movies, is that rara avis among films an excellent story retold in a manner possible only for the screen. With Charles Laughton as a magnificent Captain Bligh, H. M.

S. Bounty" sets sail from Portsmouth Harbor in 1887, bound fo Tahiti to take on a cargo of breadfruit to be planted in the West Indies. For the Admirality this was a historic voyage as it was hoped that the breadfruit would thrive in its new soil, provide an inexpensive food for slaves. But the journey proved to be historic in another and more far-reaching way.

LINCOLN 44rtiM45ihSTS.ol6lhAVE pj? opening of the movement Is a pi anissimo sotto voce for ten measures, followed by a crescendo of six measures to a fortissimo, of which the shattering effect depends on its being a culmination at that very point, on its being held in reserve, on its not being anticipated. But once started, Mr. Koussevitzky's crescendo leaped in two measures to a forte; two measures before the culminating point it was already at fortissimo; all that he could do after that was to drive this fortissimo harder, and what should have been a culmination was merely more vehement.

This happened more than once, and its seriousness lies in the fact that the entire movement is a series of crescendos within larger crescendos. Moreover, when the fortissimos were driven the quality of the orchestra's tone suffered, and in the quieter passages there was little nuance, little that could be called phrasing. 'Similar characteristics resulted in th- second movement in the long opening of the Scherzo, marked sempre pianissimo, that was taken piano; in the vehemence of what followed and the lack of sensitive nuance and phrasing. In the slow movement, because of its very nature, there was less of all this, and the orchestra regained its normal beauty of tone. But here Mr.

Kous sevitzky's mood resulted in a tempo too last ior the music to realize its eloquence and profundity of feeling. This tempo, with the otherwise su perficial treatment, reduced to per- iunctoriness the exaltation of the passage Just before the second florid variation one of the most wonder ful moments in the entire symphony, and the arabesques of the variation itself were too hurried to be distinct and significant. The recitatives at the beginning of the last movement were excessively vehement again, and things continued much as before until the passage "Seid Umschlungen Million-en!" Here for the first time the performance achieved the spaciousness, the grandeur, the elevation of the music. Here, too, the orchestra achieved its customary splendor of tone, and the chorus lost its shrillness. And the performance remained at this high level thereafter, giving the occasion at least a brilliant conclusion.

Of the soloists, Miss Vreeland sang on Thursday with a fullness of tone that I did not recall having heard in this taxing music before, but in the Poco Adagio toward the end she sounded a little flat. Miss Wysor I could not hear; Mr. Alt-house sounded a little constricted, and Mr. Huehn a little rough. B.

The captain was et adrift in an open boat, with death for him and the small group who had remained loyal almost a certainty. But by extraordinary seamanship he navigated his craft to the Dutch East Indies, eventually returned to Eng land, and became an Admiral. 'ine scenarists have taken the liberty of putting him In command of the ship that tracks down the mutineers who escaped to a small island where their descendants are now living but It is a device that heightens the melodrama of the taie without lessening its credibility.

It is the triumph of "Mutiny on the Bounty" to subordinate none of its players to Laughton, though he easily dominates the scene by the vigor and reality of his performance. But each of the minor characters has a definite place in the development of the tale, with a profile and personality wholly individual. As Fletcher Christian who leads the mutiny Clark Gable is altogether at his best, and Franchot Tone's performance of Roger By am (innocent of mutiny but condemned to death, nevertheless) Is also ad mirable. Dudley Digges Is superb in a minor role. It is a pleasure to recommend "Mutiny on the Bounty" to you.

At the Paramount "I Found Stella Parish." a First National picture, with Kay Francis, Ian Hunter. Paul Lukas, Jessie Ralph and Sybil Jason. Directed by Mervyn LeRoy. Screen play by Casey Robinson from a story by John Monk Saunders. At the Brooklyn Paramount.

A nice question of ethics, some good acting by Kay Francis and Ian Hunter, plus an interesting dramatic background are the Ingredients of "I Found Stella Parish," which opened at the Brooklyn Paramount yesterday. Though Miss Francis has been none too fortunate in her recent screen material, she yet retains the ability to be noble and attractive at the same time qualities which are sturdy allies to her role as Stella Parish. A leading actress on the English stage, Stella Parish makes a sudden and perplexing exit from professional life Just after her most successful first night. We know that the unexpected appearance of her divorced husband come to blackmail her has caused her flight, but the public is unaware of it until she has been tracked to America by a newspaperman (Ian Hunter). He establishes a place for himself in her household, becomes a friend to her daughter (Sybil Jason) meanwhile assembling the deta is of her past and releases his story for distribution Just before she declares her love for him.

When she discovers his duplicity cynicism replaces love and she devotes herself to the financial possibilities of her notoriety for the sake of the child who shall, of course, be kept in ignorance of her mother's shame. It is only a corollary that the newspaperman (Ian Hunter) turns his efforts to rehabilitating the actress, assisting in her eventual return to the stage. There is ft good performance to the credit of Mr. Hunter in "I Found Stella Parish," but young Miss Jason is less to my taste. Paul Lukas plays with customary sincerity in a minor role.

Altogether, it is Miss Francis' picture and one closer to her best standard than she has had in some time. California Gold Rush Inspired 'Frisco Kid" Much of the Inside history of old San Francisco in the days of the California gold craze and the struggle of the Vigilantes for law and order is told for the first time on the screen in James Cagncy's new Warner Brothers' picture, "Frisco Kid," opening at the Manhattan Strand Theater this morning. Months of research went into the writing and filming of the picture, which was produced from a story and screen play by Warren Duff and Seton I. Miller. A number of the principal characters are historical, and the settings, the costumes and the language of the characters are said to be meticulously authentic.

to Oil INI 70 FLATBTJSII AVENUE, near NEWKIRK In "On Stage," which irii have an extra performance tomorrow evening at the Mansfield Theater for the benefit of the Stage Relief Fund. was the imposing program which delighted a somewhat tardy audience at Frank Sheridan's Town Hall piano recital last night. And their tardiness was regrettable, for Mr. Sheridan's rendition of the Bach Partita in B-flat Major was superb. The resonant concert-grand was diminished, by the remarkable treatment it received, to a clavichord from which Bach's delicate phrases sang with a strange and rare timbre.

Mr. Sheridan's playing was scholarly, but it was more than that; it was virtually loving. The result was an absolute consummation of artistry. But he was still with Bach when that master gave place, on the program, to Beethoven. The latter' Sonata Appassionata was played with all the classic polish, care and understanding required by the difficult music, but one thing-Beethoven's fire was missing.
