WILL SING "DANNY
THAT thrilling' poem of Kipling's that
Walter Damrosch has eet to such
tragic music, and which owes its
world-wide popularity to David BIspham's
Interpretation o it. will be heard in Port
land next Thursday night.
The San Francisco Examiner, com
menting; upon Sir. BIspham's singing; of
this remarkable song, says:
"So, too, in the Walter Damrosch set
ting of Kipling's "Danny Deever' did
Mr. BIspham make drama, while one
waited. Here he was the soldier, rigid
trom discipline, telling In fearsome, in
evitable rhythm, the most terrible of all
Kipling's revealments of tho soldiery."
Dftvid BIspham's art is essentially
dramatic. His deep, impassioned voice,
which has no rival' In America, is made
by him merely the vehicle for the warm
output of human feeling; that moves the
audience either to laughter or to love,
to pity or to awe. as the singer wills.
It is this quality that has made him,
with all his lofty conception of art. a
popular favorite at the Metropolitan.
Xew York." He knows the way to the
human - heart, and uses his power so
wisely that every one in his audfence,
at the close of one of his recitals, leaves
the hall with a sense of joyous uplift at

His programmes are so pecularily
rich Jn .quaint .old masterpieces, as well
as fresh, unheard productions of the
present hour, that he is often spoken of
as the best? programme-maker of the
two continents. Europe and America. Ho
brings out new composers not yel recog
nized by the world-at-large but des
tined to exert a vital influence upon the
art of this generation.
For this reason the BIspham recitals
are attracting large audiences of music
ntudents and their teachers, who throng
to hear him as one who can enlighten
them as no other singer of the day Is
able to dd. It may truly be said that
no song recital "has ever .been given in
Portland of equal educational value to
musicians with that announced for
Thursday, March 9. at the Marquam.
The sale of seats for the BIspham con

Lois Steers and Wynn Coman.

A returned and candidly spoken traveler
says that one of th poorest places in the world
to hear music Is In Rome. Of concerts there
are hardly any. and the number of operas
heard each season Is at most six. The perform
ances begin at 9:30. and end after 1 o'clock
A M., and the prices are high. Under such
circumstances it Is not strange that musical
taste Is at a low level in the Eternal City, and
that singers are acclaimed there who would not
be tolerated in this country.

Maria de Macchl. dramatic eoprano, and one
of the best-known singers of Italy, made her
debut at Brescia, in the title role of Foachl
elll's masterpiece, "La. Gloconda." Her suocess
was immediate, and she was engaged soon
after for several of the leading European
opera-houses. Among other cities which 6e
visited were Lisbon, Madrid, Barcelona and
Moscow, where she "created" the chief female
role in Rubinstein's opera, "Le Demon." At
the request of Martuoci. the famous conductor,
she was recalled to Italy, to interpret the
chief soprano role in Schumann' "Faust" and
to sing the three Brunnhlldea In "Die Wal
kure." "Siegfried' and Gotterdammerung."
.besides the part of Isolde, In Tristan and
Isolde." She was soon after engaged as the
"star" at the Verdi Festivals. 1n Berlin and
Prague. The Kaiser showed his admiration of
Mme. de Macchl by presenting her with a dia
mond bracelet adorned with the Imperial armt..
He assured her, after talking with her for
nearly an hour, that her "beautiful voice and
art had the warmth of the Italian sun." Many
of the older Italian operas were half-forgotten
for lack, of a dramatic soprano to sing In them
till they were revived for Mme. de Macchl. She
will make her Boston debut. Wednesday.

that DeCaprio had been awarded the con

called the slakuhachl. The last named is a

for the fingers and one opposite, which is
stopped by the thumb. This is not a traverse

blow peas or popguns. The other leading form

astonishingly shrill and piercing. Of instru

principally to the barbaric drum. They have
all eorts of drums, big and little, and of va
rious shapes; some with two heads, like two
cones fastened at the apexes; sacred drums,
classical drums, popular drums, metal gongs,
and others. With a single exception, there
are no orchestras In Jaoan. In the theatrical
bands one finds generally a flute, a couple of
somlsens and two or three drums. The sing

not high, from the Occidental point of view.

Morning Astorlan in commenting -on Mm
Thomas' address says: "Mrs. Thomas gav
a most interesting talk on Wagner's grand
sacred opera Parsifal and a thoroughly
enjoyable and instructive time was spent
by all present. Mrs. Thomaa Is a woman
of charming personality, and without effort
held her audience deeply Interested from
start to finish. The subject was treated la
a most able and intelligent manner, and
Mrs. Thomas, who has made Parsifal- th
subject of deep study, was all the better
enabled, to discourse upon Its more prominent
features, from having had the opportunity
of witnessing Its performance, under the
most favorable" conditions. As Mrs. Thomas
proceeded with her subject she gave seme
fine illustrations on the piano of the lead
ing motifs of this great work, and which
greatly assisted the audience in appreciat
ing her remarks. The members of the
club were unanimous In expressing their
appreciation or Mrs. Thomas talk, and look
forward with pleasure to seeing and hear
ing her again in the near future. The
Parsifal march was played by Miss H.

casion of a recital given by E. O. Spltrner's
Philharmonic Society. The orchestra num
bered 00 pieces, and the programme in
cluded a string quartet, violin chorus and
violin solos. The accompanists were Miss
Hugglns. E. O. Spltzner. Leo Shaplrer, Fer
dinand J. Konrad. G. Oechsle? uid others.
The recital was under the direction of E.
O. Spltzner. and the violin playing of the
young people was creditable to his pains
taking teaching. The tone was uniformly
good. The first eight numbers consisted of
violin solos, the soloists being Miss Cornelia
Barker, Miss Louise Vaughan, Miss Minnie
Hatfield. Miss Anna English. Miss Velross
Sharp, Philip Kamm, Max Smith and James
Woodcock. A violin chorus consisting of
Miss Minnie Hatfield. Milton Marx. Victor
Jorgcnson and Mr. Spltzner played Splu
tter's "Album Leaf," a meritorious compo
sition. The philharmonic string quartet
Miss Barker, Mr. Marx, Mr. Jorgenson and
Paris I. Packard, played Haydn's allegretto
moderate from quartet No. 35. Then came
the chief event of the evening, the play
ing of these five numbers by the Spltzner
Philharmonic orchestra: "Coronation March"
(Meyerbeer). "Concert Polka" (Tobanl).
"Prelude and Slclllano" (Mascagnl), "Old
Glory" (Spltzner, words by the late Dr.
Chance), "Wedding March" (Nessler). The
balance of tone was well kept, and the
chorus played with a finish that was sur
prising. The general results are so satisfac
tory that it is to be hoped the Spltzner
Philharmonic orchestra will be organized
on a permanent basis. We need such an
orchestra here, to form the nucleus of the
Portland orchestra that Is to be.

It was suggested that Broadway seemed
to be developing a keen taste for melo
drama. "There is no doubt of it," declared the
expert of the draina that thrills. " 'Leah
Kleschna and The Woman In the Case'
are proof of that. There Is a universal
liking for melodrama, and it Is coming in
to Its own on Broadway just as surely as
the society play Is going out. Melodrama
appeals to all classes. There are different
kinds, of course. For Broadway It needs
to be modified, 'refined.' so to speak. You
must deal gently with some audiences.
Others you must hit with a brickbat to
get your effects. It Is very much harder
to reach a Broadway audience than one
In Third avenue, for Instance. Over
there they respond quickly, especially to
the sentiment in a play. The- greater an
audience's Intelligence, the more ad
vanced Its culture, the less. susceptible it
Is to sentiment. Intelligence develops at
the expense of sentiment. Your average
Broadway theater-goer Is ashamed of his
sentiment. It may be In him. but he's
determined not to betray it. He hides It
from the world."
Grand Opera -Is Melodrama.
MR. KREMER also admitted that he

grand opera, which may account for his
"I am at the opera nearly every night
during the season. It Is a great place"for
inspiration. What are the Wagner operas
but melodramas after all? No, I don't
get absorbed In the music I have heard
it so often and. know It so well that I"
can't get absorbed In it. It Is merely in
cidental to Ideas and plots which come to
me there. I go straight home from tho
opera and plunge into work. Ordinarily,
I write from 2 o'clock In the morning
until 6. Sometimes I work right through
the day. but I never start in the day
time. That would be Impossible. I wrote
'The Fatal Wedding" In four days, virtu

I can get them. I can't do anything with
out "the perfume of lowers. Sometimes,
when I grow excited. I take a rose from
the vase and crush It In my hand. Other
wise I am quite sane. For types and
scenes I go everywhere to the morgue,
to the Tombs, to the Bowery wherever
human nature Is to be seen in all Its In

Chair.' Adds to the Interest, you know."
For trying out his plays Mr. Kremer
has the most unique "dog" In captivity.
"I always read a new play to a care
fully selected audience made up of my
janitor, the janltress. policemen, postmen,
the Iceman, and others in the common
walks - of life. My Iceman Is a particu
larly good critic and the Judgment of
the Janltress, when it comes to senti
ment, is almost lnfalllrjle I give her
carte blanche In the matter of invita
tions, and she asks all tho other Jan
ltresses in the block and any one else
she chooses. I hire a. little hall, and
often have as many as 100 people there
to listen to my play. I also have some
of my own friends, who watch the ef
fect of the play on the people whom
it must please. They "represent the
class that patronizes the theaters
where the. play will be offered, and if
they don't Uke It the piece Js bound to
be a failure. They can't be trusted to
tell exactly what they think of it, for.
like humanity ln general, they are
prone to flattery. That's why I have
others there to help me watch them,
and In this way decide- what their opin
ion really is.
"When they get to gazing about
the hall, or showing in some other way
that the play isn't holding their Inter
est, I know at once that portion of the
play will have to be cut or changed.
They must. too. be made to laugh and
cry. A pathetic scene, however, should
never last longer than three minutes.
An audience that Is kept In tears
longer than that Is likely to become
hysterical, which would spoil the
whole effect of the play." Chicago
