STUDENT. RECEBVES LETTER.
Concert patrons throughout the
United States affectionately recall
the distinguished - piano virtuoso,
Xaver Scharwenka, whose appear
ances were everywhere acclaimed as
among the finest in the annals of
musical America. Owing to the late
war and his recent spell of ill health
he has not been heard from for some
time. His return to th'e concert
platform in Germany, where he ap
peared as conductor of the Berlin
Philharmonic orchestra, was phe
nomenal. His fourth concerto for
piano and' orchestra, which he re
cently conducted, presenting one of
his pupils In the solo part, met with
tremendous success in B'erlin.
Scharwenka, who is one of the few
surviving exponents of the original
Liszt school, virtually holds the po
sition or "pianist laureate In Ger
many. He is more familiar to
Americans as the composer of the
familiar "Polish Dance."
Miss Marie Soule. prominent mu
sic teacher of this city, spent the
last year in Europe with her pro
tege, Gordon Soule, studying with
Herr Scharwenka. Miss Soule, who
recently returned to this city, has
received the following letter from
