THE OREGON SUNDAY JOURNAL, PORTLAND. SUNDAY MORNING, NOVELISE!? 5. ltZX BECAUSE of the fullness of the - musical calendar for the tint 'few weeks the ' musicians In terested In Portlend's ahare to the Maefcowell , fund have decided to ' viva tin the Idem of a MacDowell con- cert and to reort to the popular gub crlptlon plan. ' ' y-The movement Set on foot ona time .'ego by the Mendelssohn Olee club.- of which Edward MacDowell waa formerly director, aeked that musicians through wt the -country contribute .ta. tha fund either through a, concert given for that benefit or through-direct aubacrlptlon. , lUra. Richard Nunn, a former pupil : of Mr.; MacDowell. MlM Dorothea Naah. . Mm. Warren B. Thomas, Mlsa Lola Bteera end Mies Wynn Coman compoee ' the committee In charge of the more ; tnent, - and though It waa at flrat planned to hold a concert at the home of aome Interested person the plan waa abandoned on further consideration. " There la no criticism made of this ' decision because those who looked Into the matter are able to Judge of the ad visable action, but It seems a pity that the original concert plan could not have been carried out. Even though the funds obtained might have been less and . the work ' Involved more, the concert -' plan seems to exprem the spirit of the movement better. WWielheso11c1ted funds - will do ' MacDowell's physical body aa much good as the returns from . e concert of his works, his real self, : which he sscrlficed In the Interests of music will be starved. The beautiful "'thing about" the Idea was 'not so murh to raise few dollars' more or leaa for - his bodily support aa to kindle en In , terest in his tragio story and a greater appreciation of the atable and lasting merit of his work, the output of a real musician's brain and soul . . And., too, I believe tbat people always give more willingly even or a little : sum If there is a semblance of some thing In return. For Instance, a. woman will pay twice much for a cake ' bought at a church fair aa for one bought at a bakery, where in the aame plaoe she would not have given that , aame dollar to the church In a volun tary subscription undertaking. It Isn't that aha want her money's worth but - aha wants to feel that there la some , thing' coming In return to ease up her conscience for the probable' "throwing away" reproach. - And 'What musician would not - rather . learn a MacDowell concerto or sonata 19 tlmea over for public performance than solicit a few : dollars from at rangers? , By the way, a list of the men who . hare lent their' names to tha national undertaking in recognition of MacDow ell'a true art and the Justine or-aome ubstanUal recognition, would he Inter esting, for It numbers some of the lead ing mtn'tf thf country.

San Carlo Operatic Company. - The rapid growth of Interest In grand pera In thl country cannot fall to hsve beca noticed by.overyona Inter ested In musical matters, especially ! here In the west whore the appearance of opera Is only beginning to bresK taxaucU, la Ktw York suah interest Is ' - eiT ;rr. rJ'- ' yy; ' - y l.!',,; Mrs.' Lulu Dahl Miller, Contralto. ' "O"" centered In the rivalry between the old Metropolitan company ' and. the -.new Manhattan. But there are other devel opments In the operatic world of . equal Interest ' ' ' ' ' .. ' ' New Orleans Is distinctive. In the matter of operatic work. ' Binoo the San Carlo Operatic company, which will open the season there, will later appear In Portland, there Is naturally some mu tual Interest. Opera has existed for nearly 00 years In New Orleana, longer than. In -any --other city of the etstee. Davis, ft French refugee from the mas sacre of San Domingo, came to Louis iana In 170 and soon after began giv ing theatrical and 'operatic perform ances, flrat In the old St Philip theatre, afterwards la the Orleans street opera house. The first .season in New Or leana waa In ISIS. Since then almost without exception. New Orleans has had grand opera every year. In the earlier days the audience wag almost esclu- stvely French and Creole and social ouatoma were then established that have been rigidly observed ever elnos. Everybody "had to appear In evening dress, and the opera waa given entire beginning at ( o'clock and continuing often till midnight. . Every family bad its box for that waa the only form of amusement. Later as tha city grew the ewlrTCTtch 'opera-house waa-ereeted,- a huge, magnificent structure. Almost every singer of 'prominence In the world and almoat every opera of Im portance have been heard at this house, and the smallest boy on the streets can give -you" selections frOm Iny of the great masters. Hitherto tha opera has always been given In French, ss one-fourth of tlie population Is French and mora than one-half understand tha language. It waa the cuatom not to engage the aame singer two seasons in succession, no mstter bow excellent they were because variety could not thus bo secured. la the past five years the opera has been deteriorating ami for thla season It waa that Henry Russell waa given an en gagement for the San Carlo which If It meets with favor will probably be made a aettled Institution . there for some time.

Raffaelle Barooohl-an Italian baaawyplenty of good -material la prmB Ised us later in tha season. at "Madam Butterfly Coming. . The announcement that ' Ravage's produotlon of "Madame Butterfly" win be here In February meets with general Interest and enthusiasm. Tha opera haa but recently gone to New Tone and duplicated the succeis It had In Wash ington, Baltimore and Boston. It will run In New Tork at the Garden theatre till Mr. Savage launches the company on Its tour after tha holidays. The general scheme of Savage's pro, duotlon necessitate the performance every night. A distribution of the leading roles has therefore been made aa follows: Madam Butterfly, Cho-Cho-San Elaa Sxamoay, Rena Vlvlenne, Florence Eaa ton. ' usukl, Cho-Cho-San's servant Har riet Behnee.

There Is much discussion about the opera, some maintaining that It Is puoclnl's maaterplece. -Thla la probably going to the extreme of compliment, but Ue general attUng t Ux jlay GffiTaiVDRPAWQLD makea It exceedingly . pretty and of rather a sensational nature, aa tt Is a scheme new to grand opera. Tha work has all the marks of Puccini a music. Boms say It Is brimful of melody; othera that tha themes are melodic but ahort and detached. One musician In London last aeaaon said: "While It Is not grand. It is grandiose." It haa the rhapsodical structure that -Puccini, la now building up and which at present- naa round mucn vogue. But In February Portland will, have an opportunity to judge for Itself of this greatest sensation In tha American operatio world thla season.

"Where do the big pianists coma fromT" writes F. E. Regal of the Spring field (Maasachuaetta) Republican after sitting through m concert by Lhevinna. "Here Is a new one of Paderewskl's rank, who ttll last year had in this country hardly been heard of. Is there a apot where they grow 'over there' on the blackberry bushes? Josef Lhevinna Is his namehad one person la a hun- aro4jheardlt-l. mnntha agoT Tat- ha J must for a dosea yea re or so have been a great pianist Psderewskl at hla best. -'Harold - Bauer, - Mma. Carreno, Pachmann It la only with such artists bo can be compared." And ho goes on at great length with unbounded eulogies of tha pianist prac tically new to America, but who haa taken the continent by storm. And all critics seem to agree on him and not only predict a future for him- equal to Rubensteln's and others', but say that he has already attained that place. Hla "bigness" and breadth are the ele ments most often commented upon. He Is taken out of the class of "such magical miniaturists ss Godowsky and Pachmann," and ranged alongside , of Harold Bauer with a coloring of tha north and - the Slavic races . replacing Mr. Bauer's equable aunllght Lhevinna cornea from the great land of pianists, Russia.

Mr. Bispham secured tha rights for tha opera both In England and America aa soon aa Mlas Lehmann'a project was aasured. "v" It was a coincidence of soma Interest that Bispham and. Miss Lehmann should have been thinking of this opera at tha same time. The baritone hss for -a long tlms felt an Interest In tha "Vicar" and when Miss Lehmann expressed her desire to compose muslo for It he was enthusiastically with her on tha plan, Mr. Bispham has tha personal super intendence of the play and Its staging, i Hla assistant Is Bram Stoker, who waa for many years secretary and "right hand man" for Sir Henry Irving. -Tha flrat act takes place In the vlonr's gar- ' den; the second In the cornfield behind hla house where the reapers are gath ering tne grain.

On the pro grama ha. appeara In the triple role of accompanist, soio pianist and composer. When he appeared here last season he was received with enthusiasm and his place on tha program was considered no .mean one. Tha coraaradena that plainly existed between tha madams and her ' pianist was so genuine and evi dent tbat it gave the audience real pleasure. Aa aa accompanist Mr. La yorge wss ideal, playing alt- tha-ocorea from memory with attention to the slightest details; and his eyea were seldom on tha piano, always on the singer. His own compositions were some of the prettiest songs on Mme. Gadskl'a program. Mr. La Forge la a Chicago man and after his appearance there last month with Mme. Gadskl tha city papers out did themaelves in praise for and proud ownership of this muslclanly young man. But other papers complimented him In almoat as strong terms, one say ing that he sang the songs upon the piano as truly aa did Mme. Gadskl wiui her voice.- One rrltlc placed him aa an accompanist In the same class with Mme. Gadskl aa a singer and tha mas ter works she sang and ha so perfectly presented. - - ' .
