Matter of Fact Altitude
Air to Player
Motif of Selections Toltl
As Novel Feature
By BARNEY MILLER
In ;i program featured by flash}
and brilliant technique, delicate
phrasing and shading of tones
George Hopkins presented a splen
did recital before one of the larg
est crowds of the season at the
music auditorium last night.
Air. Hopkins has a stage presence
(pule foreign to that affected by
most artists. Instead of a pianist
his manner reminds one of a busi
ness man. This rather brusque, mat
ter of fact attitude seems to com
inunicate itself to bis playing .also
;>nd tlm business-like manner in
which he goes about it is striking
in the extreme.
The technique which he exhibited
was nothing short of marvelous. Mis
playing was characterized by diffi
cult and sparkling runs and- capri
cious trills. At times his hands
flew over the keyboard so fast that
his lingers barely seemed to touch
Despite I Ids amazing display of
technique, the smoothness of exe
cution, the delicacy of phrasing,
at times there seemed to be an
almost undelinable something miss
ing, something intangible which
could be felt rather than heard,
it was simply this: (Ieorge Hop
kins appears to play without emo
tion. His face is as immobile and
expressionless as that of the sphinx.
Instead of a living person he at
times strikes one as being almost
a part of the instrument. His
technique and style have reached
such a point of perfection that they
sometimes seem purely mechanical.
The program was selected with
the object of making it interest
ing for its beauty rather than for
its difficulty, and was pleasing in
Air. Hopkins added an unusual
and entirely new feature to his per
formance when, before beginning tc
play, he gave a little talk to his audi
ence explaining to them the motif
of each of his selections and tell
ing them what to listen for.
The program was as follows:
