From 1907 to 1909 he was Kapellmeister in the opera house in Mayence. During these years he conducted his works in the principal cities of Europe. In 1909 he accepted the position of conductor of the Seattle Symphony Orchestra, and in 1911 became conductor of the San Francisco Symphony, which position he held for four seasons. During the years since his return to America he has conducted his own works in Chicago, Boston, New York, London and Philadelphia. In 1912 he wrote the music for ‘The Atonement of Pan.’
