MAKES DECIDED HIT
Small Musical Audience Is En
thusiastic in its Reception to
World Famous Conductor.
Walter Damrosch rmd his orchestra
seemed to have charmed their hem eis
comuletely, if one were to judge >y he
rapt attention and universal appi mse
given them last Tuesday evening, May
17th, at the Eugene Theater.
Damrosch, as a director, is one of the
best in this country and ranks among
the greatest Wagnerian conductors m
the operatic profession. He conducted
for several seasons at the Metropolitan
opera house. He did not, however,
confine his efforts to New York alone,
but took his great orchestra on the
road and met with unusual success in
the larger cities of the East, and later
in San Francisco.
His program Tuesday evening was
strictly classical, yet of a popular na
ture, because a great many of the selec
tions were familiar.
The program was as follows:
1. Overture—“'1 he Merry Wives of
2. Unfinished Symphony in B minor
a. Allegro Moderato.
h. Andante con moto.
3. Elizabeth’s Air from "Tannhauser,”
4: Hungarian Rhapsody No. 1

Madames Anderson, Van der Veer,
Messrs. Miller and Kellermabn.
Elizabeth s Air from "Tannhauser"
vvtts especially well rendered. Madame
Anderson was perfectly at home with
the Wagnerian type of music. She
graciously sang the favorite “Mavor
neen in English, for an encore.
In the Religious Scene, "Electra,” the
’cello solo was given with such beauty
of interpretation that when it was fm
’shed we could scarcely breathe for the
letuty of it, and came back to earth
only when the heavy applause compelled
us to. Madame Van der Veer has a
.vonderfully beautiful contralto voice,
the quality is always sweet, even when
singing above the accompaniment of
the entire orchestra.
'1 he qu rtet from Rigoletta showed
up the exquisite tenor voice of Mr. Reed
Miller, also that of Mr. Kellerman, the
! he concert seemed perfect to every
one, and indeed how could one main
tain an air of wisdom, when the ensem
ble work was better than any we ever
heard before, and the soloists were all
artists. In fact, Mr. Damrosch’s baton
seems to have a magic charm and works
wonders over .all under its sway.

EUGENE OFFERS RARE

With the rapid growth of the Univer
sity and city, Eugene is becoming a fa
vored musical center. Besides the reg
ular recitals given by the School of
Music, an increasing number of the
world’s best orchestras are finding ap
preciative audiences to welcome them
and make it worth their while to stop
The first important musical event of
the past year was the violin recital given
by Mrs. Susie Fennel Pipes, head of
the violin department. Mrs. Pipes has
just returned from study in Berlin. Her
interpretations and the unusual depth
and color of her tone place her among
the great violinists of today.
After two years’ study in New York
and Maine, Miss Eve I. Stinson, soprano,
is again at the University of Oregon.
At her recital given in the fall one of
the principal features of the program
was the Italian songs by the masters
of the seventeenth century. Miss Stin

hearing Fennyson’s “Maud,” which has
been set to music by Mr. Arthur Som
merrel. It was given at assembly by
Mr. 1. M. Glen, dean of the music de
partmnet. It was doubly enjoyed, as
Mr. Glen not only read excerpts from
the poem, but sang the songs. His “I
Hate the Dreadful Hollow,” was intense
with bitterness and terrible horror of
the “Dreadful Hollow.”
Myrtle Elvyn, the pianist, appeared
at the theater, assisted by Mrs. Pipes.
Her playing was characterized by a won
derful technique and a perfect mastery
of the instrument. She has, apparently,
the equipment for the making of an

Madame h neita Langendorff to Eugene.
Madame Langendorff is a mezzo-so
prano, and at her appearances last year
she was acclaimed star of the Mair
festivals, in Vienna, the home of mu
sic and art.
1 he fact that Madame Schumann

that it is possible to bring the greatest
artists of the world to Eugene. The
great success of that evening nas shown
that Eugene and the University can

are now being planned. If the public
whether vitally interested in one partic

lie generous enough to give their sup

merit we can hear as great concerts as
are given in the world.
I here is now some talk of giving
a comic opera in the fall, and, if these
plans materialize, let all students show
that they can make a tremendous suc
cess of their part of the play by giving
their support in every way.
