In January I went to Antwerp, having been invited by La Société des Nouveaux Concerts to conduct a program of my earlier works. From there I went to Brussels, where the Pro Arte Society had organized a concert of my music. The celebrated Quartet- know under that name (MM. A. Onnou, L. Halleux, G. Prévost, and R. Maas) - with its usual masterly seriousness played my Concertino and my ‘Trois Petites Pièces pour Quatuor à Cordes’, while I myself conducted my ‘Octuor’, ‘La Suite de Pulcinella’, and my opera ‘Mavra’, the vocal parts of which had been carefully studied and prepared by the singers before my arrival with the help of that enthusiastic Belgian musicians, Paul Collaer. I give all these details because I retain a grateful memory of the Pro Arte group for this concert, organized in a highly artistic fashion, which enabled me to present my work, especially ‘Mavra’, under conditions which I could not have wished better.
