Contrasts and Marked Phrasing
Chief Merits of Recital Soloists
By NAOMI M. GRANT
Careful phrasing and effective
■ contrasts were pleasing features of
■ the recital given last evening by
Arthur Hicks, pianist, and Richard
' Adam, tenor.
r Strongly marked and contrasting
phrases of the introductions to the
. Mozart “Fantasia,” the Chopin
i “Etude,” and the Rachmaninoff
! i “Serenade” gave an individuality
! to the solos of Mr. Hicks and won
' the close attention of the audience.
Clarity of the melody gave a charm
to Mozart’s simplicity of style. The
opening theme in faster tempo,
ushered in by bass octaves, was
[ characterized by considerable bril
liance and effective accelerandos.
In the first number of his second
■ group, the Chopin “Impromptu,”
■ Mr. Hicks maintained an undercur
- rent of impelling movement, in spite
s of the subdued trend of the selec
t tion, which gave an element of at
tractive subtlety. The accompani
o meat of tho Chopin Nocturne was
- well subordinated to tho beautiful
melody. Where the melody was
| carried by right hand chords the
tones achieved a velvet quality. The
mordendo of tho finale was one of
the most meritorious parts of the
The final number of the group,
the Chopin “Etude,” after a delib
erate introduction, broke into a
brilliant passage with a suddenness
that surprised the audience. Tho
bass chords, as played by Mr. Ilicks,
produced a fateful effect in the
midst of the right hand filigree.
The abandon of tho opening, a
certain tantalizing freedom carried
throughout, and the delicacy of tho
ending made the Paul. Juon “Humor
esque” of Mr. Hick’s final group
one of the most enthusiastically re
ceived. The greatest delicacy was
shown in the prevailing calm, and
I the sweetly moderated dynamics of
