Paderevrsld'a Beethoven Playing
Shakespeare, the London Teacher
The "Immortal Intermesso."
"PaderewskTs only orchestral concert of
the season in New York," says a bold
and irreverent critic, "revealed him once
more as an artist who in many respects
3s almost, If not quite, unequaled among
contemporary pianists, but as an uncon
vincing player of Beethoven, whose 'Em
peror Concerto" he played on this occa
sion. When Paderewski plays Beethoven
he is the architect of the Cologne cathed
ral building the Parthenon. Mr. Dam
rosch's orchestra accompanied conscien
tiously but unsympathetlcally, and Mr.
PaderewskTs left foot tapped the beat
nervously much of the time."
Mile. Ternina has as yet no idea when
she will be able to sing. It Is said by
the physicians who have been treating
her thai her trouble is nervous, and that
the affection of the larynx is due to an
affection of the nerves of the face and
nnt tn iho American climate. She is to
remain here somewhat longer than she
intended a lew weeks ago, as it is too
late for her to make her German engage
ments for the winter, and she is as likely,
to recover from her embarrassing afflic
tion quite as soon In the United States
as in Germany. To Mme. Gadskl will
fall the Wagnerian roles which Mile. Ter
nina would otherwise have sung, except
ing Isolde. Mme. Nordlca will now have
nobody to dispute with her the possession
of that heroine, unless Mile. Ternina re
covers. "Don Pasquale," Donizetti's charming
buffa work, has just been given at the
Metropolitan, in New York, for the first
time in 15 years. Of its revival with
Mme. Sembrich in the leading role, the
New York Tribune says: "Does it indi
cate the possibility of a restoration of
that charming old opera, or any of its
companions that linger pleasantly in
memories that reach back 20 years, to
the practicable list? We fear not. It is
not only that the eniironment of the
Metropolitan opera-house Js wholly un
suited to works of its character. Public
... voo i,dv iriftpd far away from
everything that Donizetti wrote, serious
as well as comic In a chapter dealing
with the opera generally and the present
attitude of the English and American
public toward it we read that the con
tinued existence of Bellini and Donizetti
seems to be as closely bound up with that
of two or three singers as was Meleagejr s
life with the burning billet which his
mother snatched from the flames. So
long as we have a singer with the witch
ing graces of Mme. Sembrich every re
vival of the old music native to her art
is more than welcome it is a blessing.
Doubly grateful ought we all .to be that
when we hear the old measures their
i,nom sc nnJMcMifid bv so opulent a
musical sense, freshened by so much
beauty of voice, -vivified by so much
charm of person, movement and facial
Emma Eames has just sung "Alda"
for the first time. As might have
been expected, she was the most
beautiful of all the Ethiopian maids wno
have trod the Metropolitan stage. Sne
cted with more fervor than one might
have expected, and sang as satisfactorily
as one of her cold voice and a method
which never permits of spontaneous vocal
outbursts could possibly do. To those
who care more for dramatic consistency
and warmth of voice than for spectacu
lar beauty. Mme. Eames will not supplant
Mme. Nordica in tne uue rote uj. vcmi.
Little Salignac, the tenor of the Metro
politan opera company, was given a
chance, by reason of the indisposition ot
Saieza, to show what he can do as Ro
meo. It is said that he sang the Tole
better than it has been done at the Metro
politan since Jean de Reszke sang it last
season. "Sallgnac's voice is lyric in
quality, and he has a consistent produc
tionsomething that cannot be said of an
other tenor in the company this season,"
says the Concert-Goer. "Besides, he has
the artistic instinct, and is enough of an
actor te preserve the dramatic illusion.
If Mr. Grau will give Salignac a few more
such opportunities, he will demonstrate to
the public that he Is the best tenor of the
entire Metropolitan aggregation. Some
of his high-voiced brethren can make more
noise than he, but not one of them sings
Mr. WIHIam Shakespeare, the famous
London teacher of singing, has just given
the first of a series of lecture-recitals in
New York. He had much to say about
the proper method of breathing, and gave.
In illustration, to his own accompaniment,
a group of songs by Lassen and Sterndale
Bennett, and Dvorak's gypsy songs. "Mr.
Shakespeare's singing," says J. C. Wilcox,
in the Concert-Goer, "was offered more
as illustration to his theories of voice use
than as a concert performance In the or
dinary sense. One need not dwell, there
fore, upon the extremely light volume of
his voice. Since he complained beforo
singing of the effect of a change of cli
mate, and of the weariness of his voice
from speaking, It Is quite possible that he
was not able on this occasion to control
his voice with his accustomed skill. Cer
tain It is that his tone-color was lacking
in character, that he sang falsetto over
much for good effect, and that when he
developed his tone it took on a tight qual
ity "directly at variance with the relaxed
muscles and firm breath control which he
advocated with so much emphasis in his
lecture. He -played the accompaniments
exquisitely, and one could imagine him an
inspiring master with whoa to study song
Ward Stephens writes a sensible word
about Leschetltzkl. the famous Viennese
teacher, whose enormous vogue among
Americans who go abroad to take lessons
has sprung up almost entirely since Pad
erewski made his first tour to America
and announced that Leschetltzki had
taught him. Mr. Stephens, who was him
self a pupil of Leschetltzki, and who
ranks him high, although perfectly frank
as to the rough and lndefens'lble way in
which the Viennese bear treats his pu
pils, Indulges in Interesting speculation
as to how many Americans would have
rushed over to pay him enormous prices,
had Mark Hambourg, his latest pupil to
be heard in New York in concert, hap
pened to make his appearance there be
fore Paderewski did.
Mascagnl's conducting at his recent con
cert in Berlin is thus described by Arthur
Bird, in the January Musical Record:
"Some musicians are born conductors,
whereas others, even if they have writ
ten an intermezzo, are born for almost
anything else. Mascagnl has written an
intermezzo, and I fear he came to Ber-
Un tn -nlnv If. TTIc ronfllntr Of Tschal-
kowsky's Pathetique and the 'Tannhau
ser' overture was anything but masterly;
it was just what one expects from a good
and steady director of a conservatory of
music The 'Tell overture, which he
played first, was good, and it is the.Alpha
and Omega of his ability as a conductor
"Young girls and sympathizing ama

Miss Lillian Monk, of this city, gave, a

her singing of the mad scene from "Lu

than the opera, was her field. The pub

Mme. Nevada was Interviewed -by a re
porter of the Detroit Free Press while in
the City of Straits recently, one naa "
following to say about singing teachers,
when asked: "What about the American
girl who goes to Europe to obtain an ed
ucation In music?"
"It Is usually tragic and occasionally
beneficial," answered Nevada. "Of course
the student in Europe has the advantage
of an artistic atmosphere which, as yet,
one does not obtain in America. Thatis
a great consideration, very great. The
trouble is, there are too few teachers of
music in this country who have the cour
age to tell the truth to their pupils."

"When Nevada first went to New York
from the Pacific coast, she at once became
one of the brightest of the Mapleson starJ.
Just as she was gaining popularity, an
affection of the throat interfered with her
artistic career. Fortunately, the trouble
was of short duration, and the diva's suc
cesses in Europe have been of continuous
duration. Nevada, like Calva, will not sing
the "Wagner music. Both of these great
artists recognize its transcendant merits,
but claim that it Is not adapted to their
voices or style. The florid music of Bel

of Panizetti or Blsey, are Dest su;ieu iu

made her greatest reputation In Bellini's
measures. The Italians themselves recog

gave this tribute to her: "It Is pleasure
able to record the debut under my baton
of Mile. Emma Nevada, who, in 'La Son
nambula, In later years, rose to tne ranks
of our very flrst-class prima donna. The
then new Amlna's voice was a light so
prano. It seemed like a thread of gos

the chief attraction of her voice In those
days, but since 6he has become too great
