GRAU'S NEWEST VENTURE
Grand Opera In English Humors
Abont Bisphnm Einllle Frances
Bauer Other Xcrra.
The most Important musical news of the
year Jn America Is generally conceded to
bo the announcement Just made that Mau
rice Grau, Henry W. Savage and Frank
W. Sanger have Joined hands for the pro
duction of grand opera in English ct the
Metropolitan, commencing October 1. The
new company is Incorporated as the Metro
politan English Opera Company.
Mr. Savage will retain his Castle Square
opera companies now operating in Chi
cago and St. Louis, but will not keep a
company at the American Theater. New
York, after the present season, says the
Concert-Goer. He announces that the
best chorus voices from his present com
panies, together with some members of
the American contingent In Mr. Grau's
chorus, will be massed for the new com
pany, making a chorus of 70 fresh, youth
ful voices. The orchestra will consist of
40 musicians and a competent director will
As for the principals, it is promised that
the best available English singers Identi
fied with the American and European
stage, will be secured. Mr. Savage has
a few dingers in his Castle Square com
panies who would be acceptable in such
an organization as Is contemplated Miss
de Treville, Mr. Shcehan and Miss Mc
Donald, for Instance and Joseph Baern
Etcln, formerly a member of Mr. Savage's
forces, would be highly desirable. It Is
hinted that some of, the great English
singers of the present Maurice Grau com
pany may4 be heard during the English
opera season: but in most cases their
enormous salaries would probably make
them impossible. Such singers as, Marie
Engle. Suzanne Adams, De Lussan and
Prlnglc should, however, be available.
Jacques Bars, the tenor, also commands
English. The prices of admission arc to
range from 23 cents to JS the current New
Tork theater prices and boxes will rang
Irom J7 to ?10.
The plan Is to Inaugurate the English
opera season at the Metropolitan on Oc
tober 1. and continue until December 15.
when the Maurice Grau company will com
mence the usual season of foreign opera.
Then the English company will tour the
leading cities, returning to New York for
a Spring season.
The directors of the- Metropolitan Real
Estate Company have set the seal of ap
proval on the new enterprise by subscrib
ing for their parterre boxes for Monday
nights during the English season, so the
horseshoe of boxes will shimmer with
Jewels the same as at the foreign opera.
This enterprise holds vast possibilities
for the development of a native opera,
and, if conducted with sincerity, will
eventually push out the foreign opera with
Its pernicious .star system, and make It
possible for us to hear' the best English
eingers of the world In a standard reper
toire. It Is reported by friends of David BIs
pham, who claim to have his confidence,
that he will, after the present season,
abandon the concert and opera stage fcr '
Should Mr. BIspham elect to spend the
latter years of his active life on the dra
matic stage, says the Concert-Goer, it
would doubtless enrich the pleasure of the
public and would extend his term of use
fulness far beyond what could be hoped
for did he continue as a public singer. If
lie makes the transition, we shall expect
him to prove a comedian of the first rank.
M. M. Hlrschbcrg. manager for Mr.
BUpham, says that there Is no truth In
the report that the latter will abandon the
musical stage. "With over 105 concert
engagements this season. Mr. BIspham
has no reason to abandon so profitable a
field." says Mr. Hlrschberg. "I think the
report started from the fact that he Is
working up a certain amount of dramatic
action for Richard Strauss' 'Enoch Arden,
which he is to give In New York soon.
However,' added Mr. Hlrschberg, "should
Mr. BIspham's voice fall him at any time
It will be quite natural for him to turn
to the dramatic stage, for he Is already a
Portland people will be interested In
learning of the new field of work entered
by Ernllle Frances Bauer, formerly of this
city, but of late In charge of the Boston
office of the Musical Courier. Her Intel
ligent insight into the musical situation
and its needs has shown her the urgent
demand for trained and competent teach
ers In repertoire and interpretation, both
vocal and Instrumental. She has there
fore decided to retire from musical Jour
nalism and will henceforth devote her
time to "English and foreign diction;
coaching In song Interpretation; musical
talks to schools and clubs; the selection
of repertoire: arrangement of programme
and thorough Instruction In piano-play-lng."
Miss Bauer, during the past four years,
has had rare opportunities, both In New
York and Boston, for studying the work
of the great world-artists, for everybody
comes to America these days. Gifted with
keen powers of observation and deduction,
together with unusual ardor In the pur
suit of her work, she has availed herself
of these opportunities to the utrncat. Her
jndomltable pluck, determination and en-
ergy that made ther services of so much
value to tbe Musical Courier win doubt
less carry her to success In this new field.
Fannie Bloomfltld Zels'er has Just cele
brated the 2Sth anniversary of her first
jublle appearance by a Jubilee recital at
Central Music Hall, Chicago. She was
the first Chicacoan who obtained recos-
nltlon In art centers of Europe as an artist
of the first rank, and'of all the great
musical Interpreters of the world, she Is
the only one who made her debut In Chi
cago. Her home is lit that city, where
she has a high social position. Mr. Slg
mund Zcisler, her husband. Is a prominent
lawyer and citizen. They have three
sons, of whom the oldest is 13 years, tho
youngest about 6 months. Unusual In

Any detailed discussion of yesterday
afternoon's performance of "Gotterdam

of unabridged and serial representations
of the Nlbelung tragedy to a close, would
detract from the most brilliant feature
that those representations have disclosed
the Brunnhllde of Mme. Ternlna, says
the New York Tribune of March 28. The
powers of this wonderful singers and actor
were never disclosed here before as they

conviction, such sensuous emotional and

who could make us so feel pity for the out

times seemed to be transfigured, and her
feelings went out through the audience
like galvanic shocks, awakening every
where sympathetic responses. It was one
of the greatest triumphs of the season.

IN TWENTY-ONE YEARS
WHAT PIANIST HAMBOTJIXG HAS AC
COMPLISHED IX THAT TIME.
Yonnsr Russian Talks Abont Himself
and the Rtsld Discipline of
.Mark Hambourg, the brilliant young
Russian pianist, who will probably be
heard In Portland In the near future. Is
barely 21 years old. yet his professional
career has embraced such unusual experi
ences as tours In Europe, Australia, much
playing in England, and now an American
tour, during which he will play in about
0 concerts. Including engagements with
the best orchestras in this country.
;T was born In Bogutschar. In South
Russia, in 1S7S." said Mr. Hambourg re
cently to a representative of Music, who
wished to glean Information from him
concwnlng his art and bis experiences as
a pupil of Leschetltzky. "My first studies
were with my father, who was a good
pianist, a professor In the Russian Con
servatory, and for several years head of
the branch of the Royal Conservatory, lo
cated In our town. My father removed to
London. England, 10 or 11 years ago. and
he Is now a well-established professor of
piano there, having a large practice and a
solid clientele. When I had reached the
age of 12, or nearly so, my father sent
me to Leschetltzky, at Vienna, with whom
I studied for two years and a half, clos
ing my career with him by many appear
ances In concert In Vienna and in the
provinces of Austria-Hungary. With Les
chetltzky studied repertory, for my
technique was already well established,
and I had been playing In concerts off
and on ever since reaching the age of 9
years. I did not begin my studies so
young as some artists: In fact. It was not
until I was about 7Vi years old that I
really began to take lessons on the piano.
"In Russia our conservatory course is
quite severe. Intended to take the place
of the regular university course. Accord
ingly It Includes not alone the usual
studies upon two or more Instruments,
exercises In musical theory, musical his
tory and the careful study of master
works, but also two or more foreign lan
guages and a solid foundation of mathe
matics, philosophy and history of art. At
the end of such a course the successful
student receives the diploma of free artist,
and Is thereby absolved from his military
duty, except one year, and is partici
pant in all the privileges appertaining to
university graduates, which In Russia are
A Great Master.
"What sort of a teacher Is Leschetltz
ky?" asked the press man.
"Leschetltzky Is a great master," an
swered Hambourg, "a very great master
"What does he dor'
"He drills one upon the repertory."
At this point the story was brought up
told by a Chicago girl, of her lessons with
the same teacher and her hearing Lesche
tltzky drill Padcrcwskl In all the mlnuto
nuances of his pieces, over and over
again. The question asked was whether,
after an artist had been subjected to a
process of this kind, he could be called a
free artist, and would not feel himself
bound by the minute directions of his
"Yet, he does drill one In all sorts of
nuances," said Hambourg. "He drills un
mercifully. But the queer thing about It
Is that Leschetltzky never plays the same
piece twice alike, and so the next time
you come with all the nuances worked
out tho best you can, according to his
directions, he Is ready with a brand-new
lot. which in turn you work out. And
when you bring these he has still another
lot. The result is that after1 you have
studied the piece first of all In your own
way, and then In the Leschetltzky ways,
you are left free to follow your own
taste, and after all the master likes you
better If you arrive at a way of your own.
It Is curious, but this is the way of If."
Just here the Interviewer went back to
tho childish experiences in concert, and
the question was asked how many pieces
Mr. Hambourg had at that time.
"Oh, I had quite a repertory." answered
the young master. "I suppose some 25
pieces, and some of them were quite im
portant. At any rate. I war. thought to
be musical, as I well ought to have been.
For. besides hearing all these pieces from
childhood taught by my father, my
mother also was a musician, a fine singer,
and I suppose I Inherited something from
her In the way of love for melody."
Here again a da capo was made to tbe
Leschetltzky method, and questions were
asked concerning the so-called "method"
and the bandaged hands of pupils the
story being that diligent pupils "were
thought lnzy unless then- hands became
so Inflamed that they had to be "bandaged
with hot fomentations.
"Leschetltzky has no method," said
Hambourg. "He expressly denies having
a method. He says: 'Play with your feet,
play with your elbows: play with anything
only play. As for theso bandaged
hands, I never had any such experiences
of my own. It Is simply that ambitious
girls come there and when they arc told
to work two hours 'a day on certain things
they work six, seven, even eight hours.
Of course, their hands give out, and pres
sectly have to be treated with fomenta
tions to reduce the swelling and take down
the pain. His method Is Just to keep the
hand easy and ploy In the easiest possible

way. That Is the whole thing. My
knuckles gave me some trouble. Lesche
tltzky prefers the knuckles rather high,
so that the thumb has plenty of room to
pass under the palm of the hands: besides,
he thinks the fingers have more power, and
I think so. too."
Here ancf-e phise cf Leschetl zky came
up, his fondness for billiards. It will be
remembered that great currency has been
given a reported, saying of Paderewskl.
that the principal thing he learned of
Leschetltzky was how to play billiards.
"Yes, ho Is fond of billiards," answered
Hambourg, "and he plays a very good
game. I have often played with him until
morning light, or nt least until 4 or 5
o'clock In the morning. But It Is not all
billiards. He talks a great deal, and
tells his experiences. He has met every
body, you think, from the reminiscences
lie tells, and as he la witty and a brilliant
conversationalist, he Is Immensely enter
taining, nnd, I may add. Instructive.

meet the master. It Is the came thing over
again, and always he has a lot of new
and Interesting things to telL He was a
wonderfully fine pianist himself, and
played' the whole repertoire. One may
be sure of this from the training he has
given so many eminent pupils Esslpoff.
Paderewskl, Mme. Zelsler. Mme. Hopeklrk
and so on.
"When I graduated, as I might say.
from the master," Mr. Hambourg went on,
"I made a debut In Vienna In the Chopin
E minor concerto, and I had excellent suc
cess:, so much so that I appeared In ZZ
concerts the first month.
Bach Ills Favorite.
At this point the Inevitable question was
propounded: "Who is your favorite com
poser?" "I like them all." he answered. "Bach,
Beethoven, Schumann, Chopin nnd all;
but most of all Bach. Beethoven and
Schumann. I have had good success -with
Chopin, particularly with the concerto In
E minor, but to roe Bach Is tho best mas
ter of the whole lot,"
"Have you written anything?" asked the
scribe suggestively, but not quite hon
estly, for he had seen the proof sheets
of a new gavotte in A minor. Just now in
the press of Schlrmer.
"Yes: I have written quite a number of
pieces, mostly small," said the artist. "I
studied composition fir&t in Vienna, and
then in London, curiously enough with nn
Amerjcan, Mr. Clarence Lucas, a Cana
dian. He Is a very clever man. and a
great master of counterpoint. Professor
Prout considers him one of the best in
England. He has a great faculty of trans
forming a theme In a hundred different
ways. He can make anything out of any
noticc one can assign. I have composed
songs, pieces for violin, and the like, all
sorts of things, meaning some day. please
G6d, to do something worth while."
Later on Mr. Hambourg played several
selectlops, the Brahms Handel variations
and fugue, the Bach "Prelude" In A minor
and fugue, that In D major (D' Albert),
and part of the chromatlca. In all he
played with great breadth, sureness and
Intelligence of technique, and with lots
of temperament. Sentiment he has Jn
plenty, but the other side Is not lacking.
Few artists play Bach in a maimer more
likely to command the attention of the
public. Undoubtedly his temperament
sometimes carries him rather far In the
direction of power, but he readily recov
ers himself. Tls tone-production Is forci
ble, perhaps rather too much so for a
small room; It requires the ample spaces
of public halls. But It Is a singularly full
and sonorous tone, and the singing qual
ity Is very marked, particularly In his
private work. He is an artist who ought
to have a future. With attainments so
advanced at his age. and with so much
original force of musical gifts, he will be
expected to occupy a commanding place
In the 'musical world. Personally he Is
of medium height, rather thick and solid,
very quick of mind nnd full of intelli
gence. He Is ready for a Joke, speaks
a number of languages. English very
well, and has seen the world. It Is time
for the world to see him.
Presence of Mind.
A good story"comes from tho English

called for extra cleverness on the part of

pearing ridiculous. The performance was

Here Is a copy of versc3 which was
really sent in to the box office of the

possession for nearly three weeks, but
lack of space has prevented my printing
It sooner. The writer signed himself,
probably with truth, 'A Gallery God":
The scrrel-top comedian
Came la "Evanseline."
Early in the setentles.
Ere yet be knew Maxlne.
The critics shrug-Red thtlr shoulders.
And watched him with a frown;
But the Rallery gods were "happy
When Goodwin came to town.
He nwd to play "The Skating Itlnk,"
"Turned Up" and many more.
With a whirl at comic opra.
Which made the critics sore.
They said he couldn't sing or set.
Yet the laughter floated down
From his friends up la the gallery.
When Goodwin came to town. J
I wonder who- remembers now
His death rcene In "CamlHe."
Of course It was a "tate-off."
But the tauchs were pretty real.
They say fair Sarah's envy turned
All shades from green to brown.
And she had lots of empty seats
When Nathan was la town.
Then, with "The Gold Mine." Goodwin said:
"At art I'll have a try.
For many years I've made them lauch.
And now I'll maie them cry."
But 'twas the funniest e'er h did.
And laughter floated down
From tho same old places In the same, old way.
At the funniest man in town.
But he kept "a shovln' " Just the some.
With Yankee grit and pluck;
He knew hard work would win at last.
With Just a little luck.
Strong "In Mliioura" showed his skill.
His power to sweep the strings
Of human sympathy and love
A power denied to kings.
"David Garrlck," "Nathan Hale,"
"The Silent System," too.
Taxed graphic powers of all our scribes
To pass them In review;
They had to come to time and laud.
The man they once called clown.
And now they cannot laud enough
When Goodwin comes to town.
And yet I sigh for the good old drj-n.
When we knew not a thing of "art,"
But could whistle and shout at his side re
marks. And lauch at bis "horse-play" part;
But Just the same I still "line up"
With the "gang" In the old front row.
And I smile for the critics hare Just "caught
To what we knew years ago.

For. my boy, it will remind you.
That wo now have gentle Spring.
When your wife has on a "make-up,
And looks much like a freak.
The hired girl, with broom In hand.
For the cobweb makes a sneak;
When furniture Is scattered o'er the yard
And the piano jou bought thla year
Is used by the chickens as a happy heme.
Then you'll know that Spring is here.
When paper-hangers at you sneer.
And white-wash (lends, tilled up with bcerj
When carpet-cleaners, who want a Job,
Wajk In your house. Just like a mob;
When careless daubers begin to smear.
And drops of paint fall in your ear.
Keep cool, my boy. and do not fear.
For then you'll know that Serine Is here.
When everything Is In a muss.
For dinner you do not care a cu.s. J
Do cot begin to pant and swear.
The cook may leave you in de-palr:
Remember that you're not the sinner;
Perhaps next week you'll get your dinner.
For. while tho bouse Is cold and drear.
Tou know, for sure, that Spring Is here.
