Content: Griffes first met the French-born conductor Pierre Monteux in October 1916. When Monteux was appointed the conductor for the Boston Symphony Orchestra in 1919, he began to program contemporary music, despite the objections of both the orchestra and the public who were accustomed to a German repertory. Griffes' The pleasure-dome of Kubla Khan was premeiered by Monteux and the orchestra in Boston, November 28, 1919, and repeated the following month at New York City's Carnegie Hall, December 4 and 6.
