THE MUSIC WORLD.
Advent of the Phonograph Into the
Classic Domain of Harmony(
A SEW PENALTY FOE 1?AD SINGING
Titles Invented by the
GOSSIP ABOUT OUR LOCAL ItUBICIaNB
The phonograph continues to creep ahead
in musical fields. The recent American
concert gen by Mr. Frank Van der
Stucken at the Paris Exposition trill be
banded down to posterity in the shape of
little wax cylinders.
Now many vocalists are beginning by its
aid to hear themselves as others hear them
and to realize as Emma Abbott did in
Pittsburg how different their voices sound
from what thev imagined them to be. If it
be true, as claimed, that all manner of
lapses :n tnne, time phrasing or pronuncia
tion are revealed to the singer himself by
hating his voice bonnce back to him, as it
were, what a great boon to suffering hu
manity the Menlo wizard's invention will
Instead of the effective, but ungracious
method of hissing a poor singer, what a
poetic penalty it would be to grind outbe
tween acts at the dressing room door a faith
ful reproduction of what its inmate had
just inflicted upon the audience. And the
much-abused press critic; just fancy how,
when the big, irate tenor comes 'around to
argue the point, he can turn his little crank
and annihilate the self-convicted blunderer
with a triumphant, "There! I told you sol"
The day may come when aspirants for
Tocal honors after swallowing an ammonia
phone full of genuine Italian voice, and
gazing into the laryngoscope long enough to
get it properlv placed in the region o: the
crico-arytenoideous lateralis muscle, can
complete their artistic education by the pur
chase of an assorted dozen or so of cylindri
cal Patti's, Scalchi's, Tamagno's or Mau
rel's, and then practicing away at the phon
ograph until the cylinders they turn out
are, line for line, scratch for scratch, micro
scopically exact duplicates of the purchased
In that day dealers in wax music will
have a right Jo return to the good old style
of title, thus: "The Swiss Echo Song, ex
actly as performed with marvelous success
bv Jennie Lind."
Speaking of titles, a glance over the pub
lishers' lists of popular pieces of the day is
calculated to excite an amused admiration
at the daring and ingenuity displayed in
the choice of such names.
Here are a few picked out at random on
s local counter the other day: "Yuba Dam
Quickstep," "Straight Crook Quickstep,"
for instance. Kcte the exquisite appro
priateness of the first title to that species of
musical form known as the "quickstep."
Observe the moral delicately inculcated in
the second; how the "crook," even after
becoming "straight," is ever fleeing from
the sword of justice. Another naively sug
gestive designation is, "Clog Dance,
'Grecian Statue' " probably alluding to
some colored Galatea of the male persuasion.
Then there arc the anagramatic titles got
up mechanically by reversing the order of
letters, etc Such as these were noted:
"Overture. 'Enotirab' for baritone." "Tuba
obligate, 'Olos-Abut;'" "Alto obligate
Utlaolos; Trombone solo, VEnobmort.' "
If the originality and tenuity ot mven
ion shown in some of these names only ex
tended bevond the title pace how much
more good music the world would possess.
Since the American Musician so hand-
lomely concedes the strength of the adverse
psition assumed by The Dispatch in up-
ui.oing thegreatlmrjortanoaoftheorehestra I
liihe .51. x. JS. A. meetings, it would be
ungenerous not to admit the too-sweeping
nature of the term "ultra-Anglican" ap
plied in this column to the journal in ques
tion. It was not meant to imply that the
esteemed Musician is not American in its
sympathies, as in its name; but that, where
no question of our own country is involved,
it leans strongly to the English schools and
from the German an antithesis quite
natural in the connection in which the term
was originally employed.
It may be frankly admitted that the
Musician is, as it claims to be, "thoroughly
American inside, outside, upside, down
side, frontside and hindside." And it is
just exactly this ubiquitousnessof its Ameri
canism, this practice of scanning all kinds
of questions by the tallowdip of national
delusiveness; it is, in short, the "know
nothingism" of the American Musician that
gives rise to its silly and futile protests
against drawing upon the Old "World for our
best orchestral conductors and players.

gifted young composer and conductor, makes
the following pertinent comments in the
One is Instantly struck by tbe distinctly
American flavor of this list of names. With
tbe exception of Mr. Chadwick (Mr. McDowell
makes no pretensions as a conductor) I bellevo
tbere is not a single genuine American name
on the list. Let us look at the matter more
closely and from a purely professional let us
say musical point of view. To be a conductor
in tbe highest sense of the word one mnst be
more tban an admirable musician. It is a pe
culiar gift, and many of the greatest musicians
have not possessed it in the least decree. It
also requires unceaslnc training and practice
Arthur Nlkisch has officiated as conductor of
tho Leipsic Opera House for more tban ten
years. He has conducted numbei s of times all
of the standard classical operas and has
brought out under his own supervision many
new works. One may say without exaggera
tion that for ten jears be has conducted either
Important rehearsals or actual performances
every day. He was named by Levy as his pre
ferred successor at Bavreuth: and in reneral
musical circles he is reckoned as one of
tbe five or six greatest conductors in Eu
rone. As competitors with him a list of gen
tlemen is brought forward who have officiated
for some time as conductors of tbe numerous
small orchestras and choral societies in differ
ent American cities, holding probably one or
two rebcaraals a week, witb amateur singers
and "scratch" orchestras. Is tbts in the least
just or is it even honorable? All of these
"American foreigners" may be excellent
musicians, and doubtless are, but they
lack the training, the experience,
tbe daily practice of conducting, and nhnvn nil
they are not Americans. They came to this
country .because they hoped to make money
here. Mr. Nlkisch comes probably in precisely
tbe samo spirit; but being the better man be
gets a position wbich very few of the others
would even have applied for. This same so
ciety of musicians In New York wbich
intends to contest the landing of Nlkisch
in this country is chiefly composed of Ger
mans. Why did they come hereT Evidently
because tbey expected to make money more
money than they could make at home. Why
do tbey protest against the landing of air.
Njkisch? Evidently because tbere is not a
man in tbe society who feels himself competent
to fill tbe position bimself. and immediately
we have a living example of the "dog-in-the
Crolcheo nnd Quavers.

The Menetlrel, speaking of tho magnificent
production of "O telloiftt the London Lyceuta,
says: "Signor Facclo Is the first Italian orches
tra leader ot our times. Under his baton the
Instrumentalists were marvellous, and no or
chestra can be compared to that of the

teacher whose previous stay In Pittsbure won
him the high esteem of his pupils (among
whom were such leading singer as Mrs. J ean
Wallace Webster. Miss Rosa Weber. Messrs.
D. M. Bullock, Ross "W. Drum and J. N.
Bebout), will be welcomed back for another

A ctmiotjs paper by an English organist
upon "ileloayin Speech" asserts that a cow
moos in a perfect fifth and octave or tenth; a
dog barks in a fifth or fourth, a donkey brays
In a perfect octave; a horse neighs in a descent
on the chromatic scale. Each person has his
fundamental key, in which he generally speaks,
but which ho often transsoses in sympathy
with other voices, or when he is excited.
Dh.F. L. RrrrEK,of Vassar College, cor
rected the generally accepted opinion attribut
ing to Gnillame Franck the writing of the
"Old Hundreth" psalm. "The tnne," writes
Dr. Rltter, "is due to Louis Bourgeois, who
adapted it from a popular air of the fifteenth
century. In the Genevan Psalter, the tune is
set to the lSJth Psalm. Louis Bourgeois was
born in Paris in the first part of the sixteenth
A Louisville sparrow found a queer resting
place the other day the interior of an organ
pipe. Queerer yet is the statement going the
rounds of the musical press that the presence
ot this sparaow put the organ ont of tune for
days, and caused an organ builder to bo called
In to see what was the matter. When any dif
ficulty with a single one of the thousands of
pipes in an organ is enough to move a church
music committee to have the instrument put in
order, the millenium will have arrived.
Mb. Simeox Biseell, of our town, dis
courses learnedly in an Eastern musical paper
upon the ultra-scientific voice cultivator. This
is a feeling portrayal of a not uncommon ex
perience: "If the pupil has ever been a pupil
of another teacher or a number of teachers, as
the case usually is, then the fiery indignation of
the rreat discoverer, vea more, the creat cre
ator of the only true method of voice building,
comes down upon the pates of the voice
butchers who have dared to attempt to teach
what is still a mystery to all the world save the
great voice builder."
Mr. Baknabke, who returned to Boston last
week after a season of 42 weeks, says: "We
have been from Maine to California, played to
"standing room only' nearly everywhere, taken
enough money to pay everybody all we owed
them, gave ourselves (Messrs. Karl, MacDon
ald and myself, I mean) our regular salaries
and put away $25,000 for futnre operations.
We are satisfied, and have health, as well as
wealth, as a result of the hard work of our long
season.' Apparently the old favorites of "The
Bostonlans" had some reason for staying out
West and missing Pittsburg for the first season
in many years.

Cut this out and paste it in your Grove
supplement; the London Figaro is responsible
for it: Bottesini's name was, perhaps, not con
sidered of sufficient Importance to be included
In "Sir George Grove's Dictionary," but it duly
appears in the "Appendix." In that extraordi
nary work the date of Bottesini's birth is put
down at 1822. whereas as a matter ot fact he
was born in 1821. Furthermore, it was not at
the age of 11 but at 13 (be was indeed nearly
14) that application was made by him to be
admitted to the Milan Conservatory. It
is, moreover, not true there was then
only one vacant place, and that for a contra
bassist. Indeed, there were two scholarships
open for competition, one for the bassoon and

to himself, was at Alary's concert at Exeter
Hall, in 1848, and not at tbe Musical Union in
June, 1819, while the extraordinary statement

latter occasion he played the violoncello, re

A PECULIAR ACCIDENT.
The Balloon of nn Aeronaut Bursts Without
CnAELOTTE, N. O., August 10. At the
Mount Holly fair grounds, yesterday
afternoon, Prof. W. K. Perry, aeronaut of
the American Balloon Company, was to
have ascended to a height of three-quarters
of a mile and then descend by the aid of a
parachute. At 5-o'clock everything was in
readiness, and in the presence of 1,500 peo
ple the balloon and aeronaut ascended.
"When the balloon had traveled upward
about 700 feet the crowd discovered that it
had burst, and it. immediately began to
As Prof. Perry was holding on under the
parachute he was not aware of his terrible
situation. The crowd became frantic with
excitement. Tells went up and pistols were
fired to attract his attention, but it was of
no avail. Soon all the gas in the balloon
was exhausted, and, twitching, jerking and
whirling, its fall became more rapid. It
was too late to release the parachute from
the wrecked balloon, and all came down
with a terrible crash to the earth. The
crowd rushed round the unfortunate man
and every attention was given him, but for
20 minutes he did not move or show signs
of life. His fall is variously estimated at
from 100 to 400 feet.
Prof. Perry was brought here and is be
ing treated by the best medical skill in the
city. Many of his bones are broken and
the physicians think it hardly possible that
he can recover.
