THE SUNDAY OREGONIAN, PORTLAND, OCTOBER 8, 1905,
Bauer, Master Musician, Plays Wednesday
Auspicious Opening of Lpis Steers-Wynn Coman Concert Season.
THE return o Harold Bauer, pianist.
I In tho ripo fullness of his powers, In
oncert Wednesday evening, makes
a. mo3t auspicious opening for the Ixris
Steers-Wynn Coman course of concerts
It -would be difficult to find a more at
tractive artist, or. Indeed, a more locally
popular one, to open the course with
than Bauer, for he left a most enviable
reputation when he played here a few
seasons ago, and a very widespread. de-
Biro to have him appear again. He was
almost an unknown quantity, at least in
the "West, when Miss Steers first engaged
him, and, although tho weather on the
night of his first appearance here was
Btormy, a very .good-sized house greeted
the young artist Now, after a few sea
sons abroad, where the laurels have come
with the most unusual rapidity, it will be
an added pleasure to have him reappear
and display the riper powers and the
growth o his splendid art.
Eastern critics .have seldom exhibited
enthusiasm In a more pronounced degree
than they have over Bauer's perform
ances. "After tho dry, langorous play
ing we have heard In our -concert hall,"
vrote Henry T. Flnck, in the New York
Post, "Mr. Bauer was as refreshing as
a shower bath in August. And the ap
plausehow different lsthe spontaneous
outburst which follows the emotional
playing of emotional music, from the hes
itating, dutiful applause which follows a.
merely intellectual interpretation of mere-,
ly intellectual music!" English musical
writers expressed equally cordial appre
ciation. "I - went to. St. James Hall to
criticize," confessed the critic of the Ref
eree, "and remained to enjoy. I referred
last week to tho reputation .thls'oung
musician has acquired on the Continent
and in America. From his playing at tho
recent London Festival, my; .-anticipations
were considerable, but thejwere exceeded
Wednesday by realization." "
Since his last visit to the United States,
Bauer has been filling many important
engagements in Europe and South Amer
ica, A recent letter to his manager states
that he (Bauer) had' given over 150 con
certs in all. Dcsplto this activity, he
found time to arrange an entirely new
repertoire for the present season, and the
programme for Wednesday contains some
wonderful selections. The concert will be
at the White Temple.

Sweetness of Grand Opera Mixed

Ten months ago. Miss Rita Hansen, a
favorite contralto soloist, left this city
to visit relatives in Mexico where she
may permanently locate. Gifted music

Miss Hansen was connected with tho
music department of the University of
Oregon, and sang ag soloist "in several
Portland churches. She is also remem

I had quite an experience before reaching
my destination. Wo were to reach Irapuato
at 3 A. M.. and the porter took me oft at
the wrong station. It was very dark, and
there were crowds of Indians squatting on
the ground with their baskets of fruit. The
only light was in a little inn a block from
the station. I had not time even to tie my
shoestrings or close my grip, and so I and
the porter, carrying my open grip, entered
the Inn.. I was the only one to leave the
train, and there I was, the porter about to
leave me, when the conductor rushed In.

that it would not be difficult to write everr

dragging uway of the last bull. It was con
sidered a great bullfight. The best people had
boxes and were elegantly dreased. But the
cruelty of it all appalled me. Awaiting the
bull" entrance were a number ot men on
a fence, and as the bull passed the first gate,
a email knife or dagger with a long, colored
ribbon attached was stuck in the back of the
neck. The bull rushed Into the ring and was
tormented with the scarlet cloaks, banderillas,
long knives with colored papers, which were

Wednesday evening at St. David's Protestant
Episcopal Church by Frederick W. Goodrich,
the organist and choir director of the church.
The programme was taken from the works of
German composers, written specially for thf
king of instruments. The special features
were in the flrst part comprising the "A
Flat Sonata" of Rhelnburger. the "Prelude
and Fugue In G Major" of J. S. Bach, and
two movements of Mendelssohn's organ sonata
in B flat.
But a most dainty pastoral of G. Markel'3
must not be forrotten. for it charmed the
audience and came In as a relief between the
classical compositions mentioned. It Is not
necessary now to eulogize Mr. Goodrich's
playing, as he has been so often heard In thfe
city. But the Baqh fugue Is one sometime-
attempted by amateurs, to their downfall,
as It needs, not only absolute precision and
clearness, but mastery of the pedHls ae t

assisted by Mrs. Millie Perkins, soprano, who

a fair-sized and appreciative audience.
The Parish Choir, a Boston musical publica

not only a composer, but a musician of hteh
merit. The more ambitious anthem of tho
two is "Bleseed City. Heavenly Salem." fr
solo voices and chorus, and the other anthem
la "The Souls of the Righteous." The Utter
composition Is one of refined choral beauty
and is of moderate difficulty, quite within the
range of church choirs and quartets.
