that, the man who would cheat in the

how the writing and singing in an
amateur minstrel show of fourteen
verses of biting sarcasm turned his ca

with wit and found its mark; so, in

De Gogorza Given Warm
Welcome In San Francisco
(San Francisco Chronicle.)
A concert by Kmillo de Gogorza is a
liberal education in music, it is also a
superb vocal lesson by a master; but
most of all it is musically charming,
satisfying nnd complete.
I'erhnps it is his American nativity
an, continental genealogy that. mnk,. I
him such an emigrant in song, fori
wherever he finds himself whether in
classic. French, British fields of folic
lore, modern German or Kussian of
ftistilinn, or Mexican, it is as though
he hnd just come home. In each he is
a specialist, and to my ears is, or was
yesterday, at his serenist. and finest in
Brahms' "In Summer Fields" nnd in
D 'Duty's deeply spiritual "Lied Mari
time." Surely these are long steps in
Versatility Is Shown.
It is due to the catholicity of De
Gogorza 's gifts and the exquisite art I
he reveals that the Columbia Theater!
was filled yesterday afternoon. Thej
concert artists capable of filling that, !
or any other theater in San Francisco,!
with a song recital are not so many!
but that one may count them on the
fingers of his two hands, with a digit
or two to spare.
De Gogorza takes place among the
first. Hei leaves with our regrets and
returns with our welcome; yet he
docs not clamor. It allures, enlightens
and thrills with a persuasiveness unique
iu this singer, who combines art with
heart ami brains. Once lm sings a song
he stamps it with an individuality and
renders his interpretation "standard"
from that moment. He is a singer who
wins your enthusiasm by such legiti
mate means that you are somehow flat
tered that yon have had the discrimina
tion to apprehend even a measure of
his rounded art.
Art of Different Periods.
Cluck's air from "Iphigenie en Tau
ride" was grouped with another found
er of French musical art, Monsigny,
and contrasted its chaste ami eloquent
recitative with the more Gallic man
lier and vivacity of Monsigny 's "Air de
Peserteur. " De Gogorza began and;
ended with the French school, two cen
turies apart, in fact, but brought into
spiritual relations by the eompieheiiMoii
and the voice of the artist.
