NEVADA'S LOCAL TRIUMPH
Nevada's Art Clarence Kddy'a Career
Tormina Heard at Last Other
The warm ovation given Nevada at her
first appearance la tMs city last Mon
day night may tee regarded first as an
acknowledgment of her high standing
and worth as a. coloratura singer and
exponent of the pure bel canto of the
Italian school, and secondly as a tribute
to the intelligence, winsomeness and
bright daring of her American woman
hood, shown conspicuously at all times
and m all places, but notably in her re
cent Spanish adventure. Notwithstand
ing her long sojourn abroad, she is thor
oughly American aad democratic at heart,
and the people know it, and love her
Viewed as an artist, her successful ap
pearance in Portland was something. be
side a persoBoi triumph. It may be re
garded as a. tribute to the Italian meth
od of tone-production. She received her
training in Vienna under MarchcsL Many
of her most notable successes have been
Ron In Italy, "the Lord's own conserv
atoire." as some one has called It, the
home of melody, the land where tonal art
Is at its purest and best. From her debut
in 'La Sonnambula" up to the present
time she has sung mainly In the Italian
tongue, a language that te more replete
with pure vowel sounds than any other
language the world has known. The part
that language plays in the production of
a pure and beautiful tone is generally un
derestimated. If Nevada had accustomed
herself to the rough consonants and to
the unkind gutturals of the Germans, In
place of the liquid flow of vowel sounds
that characterizes the Italian tongue, she
would never have aoqutred so tender and
beautiful a portamento, such subtle grad
ations of crescendo and dimuendo on long
Eustaned notes (meeea di voce). Insur
mountable physical difficulties form the
basis of the inferiority of the German
method of tone-production. The fact must
not be overlooked, however, that nature
had first endowed Nevada with a voice
that was light, flexible, full of buoyant
grace and hence eminently suited to color
atura singing. In place of a big dramatic
voice, adapted by nature to be the vehicle
or intensity and power, of emotional ut
terance such as is commonly associated

school of music, but are broad and lib
eral enough to recognize the worth of
rival schools. Bach has its merits, each
has its limitations. The Germans lay

purity and beauty of tone. "Whereas with
the Italians artistic vocalization is the
main end sought. For a long time in
Italy operas were composed merely to
exhibit he .marvelous flexibility and
Eweetness of the human voice, rather than

the vivid presentment of spiritual truths.
Clarence Eddy, who will appear in Port
land next week, under the auspices of
the Musical Club, was born June 23, 1861,
in Greenfield, Mass., and began his mu
sical education at the age of 1L In 1867
he studied under Dudley Buck, at Hart
ford Conn , and from 188 to 1S71 was
organist of Bethany church, Montpeller.
t Then he went to Berlin and studied
under August Haunt and Albert Loesch
hom Returning to this country in 1874,
he became organist of the First Congre
gauonal church, of Chicago, and after two
jcars went to the First Presbyterian
church, where he was organist and choir
master for 17 years. In 1S76 he became
general director of the Hershey school
t musical art at Chicago, and gave there
h s famous series of 1W organ recitals
v thout any repetitions. Mr. Eddy has

The first performance of "Die Melster
slngor" that the Metropolitan opera-house
of New Tork has witnessed for two years
took place Wednesday, January 24, with
Van Rooy as Hans Sachs, a role that he
sang at Bayreuth last summer for the
first time. This gives promise of becoming
a great personation, says the New Tork
Mail and Express, Its present limitations
being only those of the slncer's ace and
temperament. It has not yet quite enough
oi tne pnuosophy, of the genial, mellow,
ripe human nature of the poet-cobbler
In It. Mr. Vay Booy's make-up, as well
as the rest of his conception, seemed
rather too young for the character. He
sang t,he music with superb vitality and
torce, ana it suits his voice exactly. Mr.
Van Rooy used the recitative more than
his predecessors here In the role have
done. Perhaps this Is the current mode
at Bayreuth. His Hans -Sachs will no
doubt become as fine as his great Wotan
Mr. Fredericks, the famous German
Beckmesser, played that role to the life,
never overdoing the town clerk's clown
Ishness, but realizing the fun as well as
the reasonableness of the character.
Grelgs action In declining to visit Paris
during the exposition and produce some
of his compositions, on account of the
verdict in the Dreyfus' case, has produced
severe criticism, says the editor of Mu
sic; people falling to see the connection
betwen music and politics. Theodore
Thomas has declined ostensibly for the
same reason, though it Is said the real
cause for the refusal Is the lack of finan
cial support necessary for such an under
taking. "It is but a question of time," says a
Portland musician, "when all students of
Bach will possess and use the 'colored no
tation' of the fugues, which brings out
the voice parts with great distinctness."

NEXT SYMPHONY CONCERT.
Mozart "Will Be the Composer Select
ed for the Occasion.
The second of the series of concerts by
the Portland Symphony orchestra will be
given at the Marquam Grand on the
evening of Tuesday, February 6. The
svmphony selected for this occasion is
Mozart's No. 40 In G minor.
In Mozart's autograph catalogue the
symphony In G minor Is set down as writ
ten July 25. 178S, which refers probably to
the day of completion. "Minor key,"
says a writer, "has become with us a
synonym of somberness, sadness and mel
ancholy; but Mozart's sadness is not of
the tragic kind. Once in the realm of
Instrumental mjsic his hellenic nature
never could succumb to the deep dis
tresses of the soul. The restlessness of
the first and second movements, the en
ergy of the themes of the minuet and
finale, the sudden transitions from piano
to fortissimo. Instead of giving us the
impression of real anguish or despair, as
some writers would have us believe, seem
more like the expression of a ruffled tem
per on the part of the composer.
"This symphony has always been a
great favorite with composers. Schubert
said: 'You can hear the angels singing
In it. Mendelssohn held It In high esteem,
and there Is a report that Beethoven
scored It foe orchestra from a piano edi
tion of it. Mozart himself was very fond
of It. The andante is not based on a long
cantilena, like most of his adagios, but
betrays rather a restless spirit, and we
easily realize that poor Mozart feels out
of sorts; but the cloud soon passes, and
In the trio he smiles again and dismisses
his "blues' with a Joke.
"The 'Finale Allegro Assai is a work
of such marvelous skill that, while the
musical student can best appreciate the
genius of the master by close study of
the score, yet the listener Is never op
pressed by Its intricacies. All Is clear,
beautiful and full of life and energy from

LATEST FAD fF THE FJEOIY SrXGKR
OF THE GHAU COMPANY.
Professes Deep Faith in Occultism as
Outlined by Mme. Blavatsky, Fat
Priestess of the Blnttatinas.
Mme. Calve did not want to talk about
theosophy. Neither did the Sun reporter.
Calve took the subject too seriously, and
the reiorter couldn't take It seriously
enough. Then, too, there was a large
leather screen between them. By one
who has never tried to talk theosophy in
French through a thick screen to an in
visible hut melodious voice which 13 try
ing on a costume for the role of Cheru
blno, the difficulties of the situation can
hardly be understood. Moreover, Mme,
Calve has a most Ingenious contrivance
for the utter demoralization of reporters

drawing-room of her apartment at Sherry's
she has a carved oak chair, of formidable
feudal aspect. Its back tow ers celllngward,

been at ease In it. There's a tradition
that Plancon can sit in It and touch his
toes to the floor. But Plancon has" been,
king so often, and is so used to stage
thrones, that he would doubtless feel quite
at home In his fellow-singer's chair. The
Sun reporter didn't. She swung her feet,
and wondered. Idly, whether Calve's com
panion and maid had explicit instructions
to run every unwelcome visitor into that
particular chair and keep her there during
the call. The prima donna's smile was
sweet and her manner was winning; but
underneath that velvety exterior might
lurk relentless cruelty.
Belief es in Blavntsky.
"Tes, I am a theosophlst," the voice
behind the screen announced In musical
tones, "but I do not like to talk about
It. As a singer I belong to the public.
It is, my metieri the singing, and you
say what jou please about my voice; but
my religion that Is quite another affair.
Even an opera singer has a soul and would
like to find the truth about spiritual
things. I am not clever; but I have al
ways longed for some explanation of life
and destiny. I think I have found it in
theosophy and so I believe in It. That Is
"Is It recent, this conviction, Mme.
"What do you call 'recent'? I have
been study theosophy earnestly for eight
years. Long before that I was interested
in occultism. I am busy, but I read and
study. Mme. Blavatsky has Influenced me
tremendously. It Is a great regret to me
that I never knew her. What a marvel
ous -woman! How her books help one to
live! Tou see, I do not talk doctrines. I
do not argue. Among my Intimate friends
perhaps, yes; but for the public, no. I
am not wise. I do not pretend to explain
the mysterious things of life. It would
be absurd, pretentious, for me to attempt
that, or even to tell my views. That such
women as Mme. Blavatsky and Mme.
Besant may do. I do not even understand,
save dimly. How could I explain? But I

lief?" "A thousands times. It is through per
sonal experience as much as through rea
son that I am convinced I have had ex
periences that could be explained In no
other way; but. no, I cannot tell of them.
That would be profanity. Tvlind, I don't
say that only theosophy holds the truth.
Buddha, Christ, all the great teachers,
have seen the truth, and all the religions
founded by them hold much that Is beau
tiful and worthy of study and faith.
Thrlvei In Gay Pnree.
"The feeling for spiritualism, theosophy,
occultism in all Its terms, is stronger in
Paris than here. Tou are more practical,
more conservative, less Impressionable,
and perhaps you have a smaller coterie
of what we call 'les gens d'esprlt I find
that in Paris most of the men d'esprit
the men of brains and feeling, the men
of letters and the arts are interested in
occultism, study psychic phenomena, be
lieve more or less In spiritualism. Per
haps the artistic nature Is more highly
strung, more sensitive to impressions than
the average nature, and so is more sus
ceptible to psjehical influences."
At this juncture something went wrong
with the costume, and for the time being
theosophy went to the wall, while the
sinsrer grappled with problems purely ma
terial. The reporter realized that her
dangling feet had gone to sleep, and. fol

a critic, "and be more unconscious of
'registers 'voice placement,' 'breathing'
and the innumerable technicalities which
hedge them about, we would have purer
