ETENTS AXD GOSSIP OP THE WEEK
Manaeers, singers and players hundreds
of them, here and elsewhere have long
been working in preparation lor the various
important musical events to take place in
Pittsburg during the approaching May, a
month quite unprecedented in our musical
history. The prospective performers have
been doing all they can to make ready a
number of the greatest works ever written,
some of them yet unheard of here. What
are the prospective listeners doing?
They don't have to do anything. They
can, if they wish, go to any or all of these
rich concerts, enjoy the singing and play
ing as it oome's, go home and forget all
about it, except, perhaps, the names of the
great foreign singers. They have had a
pleasant evening, worth the money they
paid for it, and are content.
That is all well enough, as far as it goes.
But every one of those listeners might have
doubled the pleasure of the moment and
made those concerts permanent additions to
his fond or profitable experience, if he had only
prepared himself for his part of listener as be
required the performers' to hare prepared
themselves for their parts.
Every person who intends to hear the great
musical works of the coming month will reap a
rich return trom cacn moment spent neiore
hand In gaining information about the com
poser, his life, style, rank and relation to the
development of the art; About the work itself
in relation to others of the same composer, or
of the same class, subject, form, themes, man
ner of treatment and public history; about tbe
performers, their past careers and their posi
tion in the world of art information, in snort,
upon any and all points connected with the
work to be heard. Any addition to that stock
of information makes a corresponding increase
in tbe listener's personal interest in tbe per
formance, puts him in a more receptive atti
tude and furnishes him with new possibilities
of enjoyment and intelligent appreciation.
If tne listeners thus prepare themselves the
extraordinary musical opportunities of the
coming month will result m benefits to tbe
community much greater and more abiding
than would be possible otherwise.
No doubt the greatest work to be heard next
month is Beethoven's Choral Symphony. In
deed, tbe opinion is widely held that this last
and greatest ot the "Immortal Nine" is abso
lutely the greatest musical work ever written.
Hans von Bulow, for instance, would seem to
be of this opinion, as he told a reporter the
other day that the reason of his giving the
Ninth Symphony twice in succession at one of
his recent concerts at home, was not that it
took the two hearings to appreciate it, but
that he did not deem any otber composition
worthy of a place on the same programme
Tbe first performance in Pittsburg of this
unapproachable master piece will be an event
of genuine importance.
It is the' introduction of the chorus in the
finale that makes the plainest distinction be
tween the Ninth Symphony and its predeces
sors. Beethoven bad already tried the same
plan on a smaller scale in his Choral Fantasia.
It was one of his own daring Innovations, for
, which there was no precedent; Mendelssohn is
among the very few who have succesfully fol
lowed the example, as in his "Lobgesatig." In
this great finale Beethoven at last found a suit
able place tor Schiller's "Ode to Joy," which
he first intended to compose SO years before,
when a laa ot 22, at Bonn, and which had kept
soming up in one shape or another ever since.
The Seventh ana Eighth Symphonies had been
. composed in 1812, 11 years before the ninth was
completed. Bnt even at that time he had the
latter in mind, and,had settled on D minor as
its key. The striking theme of the Scherzo ap
pears in the sketch books as early as 1815: but
the beginning of serious work on the symphony
was In 1817, when large portions of tbe first
.movement were sketched. These sketches con
tinue In 1818, along with those -of the gigantic
sonata in B flat (on. 106): in connection with
these two prodigious works is the scheme for a
companion symphony which was to be choral in
both adagio and finale. The symphony was in
terrupted by the composition of the ereat Mass
in D, the two last piano sonatas and
tbe Overture in C (Wctbo des Hauses).
Then in November, 1S22, receiving
an offer of $250 from the Philhar
monic Society, of London, for a MS symphony
to-be delivered the following March, he set to
work upon its composition in earnest. He was
-so absorbed in the great symphony as to be
careless of all his surroundings, missing his
meals, rushing in and out without his hat, etc
At length, after much revising, he wrote to
London on September 8, 1823, that tbe copyist
had finished the score, though the work of
It was not nntil 1824 (after the work had been
performed at "Vienna and dedicated to tbe Elng
of Prussia) that the London society received its
MS copy, endorsed in Beethoven's hand,
"cesebneben fuerdiePbilharmonische Gesells
chaft in London."
It is characteristic of Beethoven that, sot
withstanding all his sketching, working over
and revising in tbe process of composition,
when once be bad finished nothing could in
duce bim to alter a note. So Scblndler tells us.
When Sonntag and TJngher protested against
tbe nnsingable passages in the Ninth Svm
phony and besought him to brine them within
tbe compass, of their voices, "Nein undimmer
nein," was the dry answer.
The first performance of the work, at the
-Karntnerthor Theater, Vieiina, May 7. 182,
was turned Into a great ovation to the master,
all the creater because Beethoven, fancying
himself slighted for Rossini's then fashionable
airs, had been on the point of having the sym
phony and the mass in D first produced in
Berlin from which intention he had been dis
suaded by a largely signed memorial from the
music-loving aristocracy of Vienna. Schindler
, gives this picture of the occasion: "The glori
ous Symphony seemed to act upon the immense
mass of human beings that thronged the
building in every part like ambrosial nectar.
They became intoxicated with delight; and
when the refrain was caucht up by the choir,
Seid umschlungen Millionen,' a shout of
joy rent the air, completely drowning
tbe singers and the instrument!. But there
stood tbe master in tbe midst, absorbed and
sunk within himself. His face turned toward
the orchestra he saw nothing, and his entire
deafness prevented his hearing either the
sounds he had created or the roaring tumult
It bad inspired. Fraeuleln TJngher, the con
tralto, turned bim gently round, and then what
a sight met his astonished gaze a multitude
transported with joy. Almost all were stand
ing, and the creater number melted to tears,
now for the first time fully realizing the extent
of Beethoven's calamity."
The first of tbe two operatic concerts an
nounced by Signer G. Gilli and his pupils took
, place last Friday evening in the presence of a
goodly audience of friends and relatives, that
comfortably filled the cozy Pittsburg Club
Theater. The programme was as follows,

It is stated that only pne Miss Keane of
the young ladies and gentlemen has been
under Sig. Gllll's tuition for more than a few
months and that most ot them had no previous
instruction. It would be manifestly improper
to apply any lofty critical standard to tbo per
formance of pupils under these conditions,
though a pointed query may be made as to the
Propriety and wisdom of causing beginners in
singing to appear before tbe public In roles

young atnirants acquitted themselves with all

Gilxobe's "Jubilee" matinee and evening
concert, at the Fifth Avenne Music Hall, next
Thursday, are, ot course, the prime events of
the week. The advance sale has been remark
ably large and there is every prospect that the
big hall will be filled to greet the popular leader,
with his redoubtable band and brilliant
soloists. At the matinee the band will play ar
rangements of Beethoven's "Leonora," Over
ture (No. 3), Liszt's Twelfth Rhapsodic, Rubin
stein's Valse Caprice, Mendelssohn's "Scotch"
Symphony (two movements) and various popu
lar numbers, including Gllmpre's own national
anthem "Columbia," with cannonade accom
paniment, lime. Stone-Barton, Miss Campbell,
Messrs. Danckwardt and Whitney will be
the soloists of the afternoon. In the evening
panlnl will sing; the band will contribute
Wagner's "Tannhaeuser" Overture, selections
from Meyerbeer's "Le Prophete," an adapta
tion of Weber's Concertstueck, and otbjr se
lections of a lighter type, again closing with
the "Columbia" cannonade.
This is what Mr. George H. Wilson says in
tbe Boston Traveler of the part taken in the
Handel and Haydn Society's Easter perform
ance of "St. Paul" by Mr. and Mis. George
Henschel, who are to bo here with the Boston
Symphony Orchestra and the Mozart Club May
15 and 16: "Mr. Henschel's singing and de
claiming, especially in the recitative beginning
"O wherefore do ye these things," was magnifi
cent in breadth and expression. He is unde
niably the most satisfying singer now in the
country. Mrs. Henschel sang "Jerusalem"
exquisitely; her's is exactly the style and man
ner for it. In all other portions, while some
were physically slight, her conception and
vocalization quite atoned," Mr. Hen
schel is famous also as a composer and
conductor; an all round artistic personality
with whom Pittsburg will be glad to get ac
quainted. Tbe remarkably gitted pair are
heard to especial advantage in their own song
Tecitals;tbey sing turn about and then together,
Mr. Henschel accompanying throughout. The
result is mi entertainment of peculiar charm,
quite iui generis. Both Of them excel in the
rendition of lieder, though in all varieties of
style and sentiment. Why could not such a
recital be given on one of tbe afternoons they
spend in Pittsburg next monthT There are
many who now wish it could; everybody would
fall in line, if assured of the delightful treat in
12S Federal Street, Allecbeny.
The above popular drygoods firm is repre
sented at every large auction drygoods sale
in the Eastern market. Mr. Jo'hn Thorn

most important sale of the season. Mer
