A General Survey of Choral Concerts
Throughout the Country.
Xew Anecdote of Karl Formes and finperor
TTilliam I.
Few more pleasant moments Lave lately
been had by the writer than those spent in
looking through Mr H. E. Krehbiel's
"Kevie w of the Xe w York Musical Season,
1SSS-89," which the publishers, Messrs.
Novello, Ewer & Co., have courteously sent
to The Dispatch for review. The back
tone of the work is a chronologi
al record of all public concerts
given in Hew York, maintaining a
high musical standard; the record including
place, date, hour, performers and composi
tions, noting novelties especially. In this
particular, as in the appendix (a new feat
ure of the "Ke views") containing a general
survey of choral concerts throughout the
country, the scope of Mr. Krehbiel's volume
is, as far as it goes, quite the same as that
of Mr. Wilson's Musical Year Book of the
United States." And such records kept by
such accurate, reliable and observant men
are important and interesting to all who
care for the progress of the art in this conn
try. The peculiar charm of Mr. Krehbiel's
volume lies in what he modestly terms the
"critical remarks" (in several instances
these attain the dicnitvof profound essays),
upon the novelties brought out during the
season, and which are largely extracts from
the eminent critic's articles in the New
York Tribune. The author's breadth of
view and "many-sidedness" is strikingly
illustrated from page to page. In the
elaborate "Rheingold" review appears the
earnest student of the Northern myths
conjointly with the enthusiastic yet
clear-sighted and unbigoted disciple
of the Titan of the modern music drama.
Apropos of a flute concerto by Quantz,
Frederick the Great's instructor.he becomes
the charming raconteur of musico-royal
anecdotes, fresh and bright The Washing
ton Centennial and a festival of the Trinity
parish choirs lead him back into the history
of the phases of opera and church music re
spectively that have transpired in
the American metropolis from its
earliest days essays showing in
defatigable research. The splendid
glowing study of Von Buelow's piano re
citals is remarkable alike for keen, subtle
analysis, lor poetic description and for en;
thused encomium.; The brilliant essay upon
"Symphonic Headings" develops the
scholarly critic, whose fondness for the
modern has not abated his reverence lor the
classical, and who can bring to his
aid original authority and logical argument
sufficient to make out at least a prima lacie
cae aeainst even a Yon Buelow, a Siedl
and a Thomas.
In short, this collection of critiques is a
worthy addition to those previous publica
tions which have already won for Mr. Kreh
biel the foremost place among American
An entertaining page of the "Review"
for warm weather reading is the following
anecdote, related by Niemann, the great
agnerian tenor, apropos or Carl Formes,
the herculean basso.
"Several years ago," said Niemann,
in eflect, "I received a call from
Formes in my lodgings in Berlin.

my career began after he had left Germany,
but of course I knew him by reDUtation.
and offered myself for any setvice that he
might want performed in Berlin. He said
x that he would like to sing at a Court
Concert, and I succeeded through In
tendant von Huelsen in having him invited.
I escorted him to the Palace and remained
at his side until he was summoned to sing.
He chose'Schubert's song, "Der "Wanderer,
and bellowed it so that I was terror-stricken
and great drops of persniration
rolled off my forebead. It was
a dreadful performance. I can't describe
it to you, but to my amazement the old Em
peror led in the applause which followed it.
Formes came over to me entirely contented
with himself, and before I had got through
wondering why he had pleased the Emperor,
& summons came for him to sing again. This
time he waved the accompanist aside, and,
seating himself at the piano, sang 'In
einen Kuehlen Grunde.' Not long
after I had asked Lucca, who was then
with us at the Berlin opera, what she
tboueht of the affair. She said she had been
ite much amazed as land had asked Prince
Bismarck, beside whom sue was
shttng at the time, lor an ex
planation. Bismarck replied: "Can't you
guess? Look at Formes, see the size of
him, and hear that terrific voice! Can't
yon imagine our venerable Kaiser measur
ing him with his eye and saying to himself:
( 'What a iellow he'd be at the head of a
regiment! I must hear him sing again!' "

The "Mikado" has been performed In Ger

Felix Mottl, the gifted Carlsrnhe con

markable list of important revivals and first
productions by giving next season Berlioz's

complete, onl v the third act having been played
at the Paris Theater Lyrique. By the way, Al
vary, the star tenor of the K ew York Metropol
itan last season.has been engaged to sing Wag
ner roles at Carlsrnhe in October, and there is
said to be some prospect of bis appearing next
summer at Bayreuth, where ilottl is one of the
regular conductors.
Mat be the dying out of the so-called sum
mer evening "coscerts," wherein social exclu
slveness is attempted and dancing is the true
ration if etre, will help'to cpen the field for
genuine summer evening concerts next season
sly at the Exposition building wherein geod
mnsic of the Iirhter order will be the real ob
ject and social amenities the pleasant accps
ory. The new orchestra ot the AC. M. U.,
after a season's rehearsal, should be in good
shape for such an enterprise, which would af
ford it probably the very best field ror winning
its spurs.
A French critic, M. Brnment-Collevllle, In
writing in a recent issue of Le Monde Musical
of the .Norwegian concert which was given at
tho Trocadero Palace in Paris, places Svend-
sen and Grieg very high in the pantheon or
living composers, and particularly praises the
latter composer's piano concerto. The same
critic gives the first prize to the Russian con
cert, the second to the Norwegian, the third
to the Italian, the fourth to the American con
cert and the last to the Spanish, remarking
sagely that American mnsic "qui exlste pen,"
but Spanish mnsic "n'existe pas." Well, we
will try to survive this withering criticism, and
go on writing music just tne same. Muncal

It will have two manuals and pedal, with 22

completed by December L Little by little the

Presbyterians, who have always kept along

A peesonai. letter from Mr. Ethelbert
Nevin gives some hint ot the activity of the
gifted young composer that Pittsburg has
loaned to Boston. Besides the set of five songs,
Op. 5, recently published, Mr. Kevin has com
pleted the following works: Op, 6, some qualre
main dances for pianoforte, already in the
publisher's hands; Op 7, Melody and Mazurka
for violin, dedicated to and to be
played by Adamowskl: Op. 8, Romance and In
termezzo for pianoforte; Op. 9, "Wedding
Mnsic," for strlne quartet, and Op. 10, "Paul's
Lullaby," a setting for mixed chorus, with so
prano solo and four-hand accompaniment, or
Eugene Field's bewitching verses all about
"Wynken and BIynken and Nod." One or the
possibilities or the early local season is a con
cert or Mr. Nevin's own compositions, given by
himself with the aid or a chorus, a string quar
tet and several solo singers. If this possibility
should materialize the occasion would doubt
less be highly interesting and attractive.
The Normal Music School at Klttanmng
wound up last week what seems, from all ac
counts, to have been a prosperous and artistic
ally beneficial session. On Thursday evening
Gaul's cantata, "lhe Holy City." was given by
the chpral class, led by Mr. S. G. Smith, with
Miss Inez Mecusker, Mr. R. T. Knox and
Mr. G. R. Broadberry as soloists. Mr.
Broadberry also appeared as composer
and accompanist in the miscellany pre
ceding the cantata. In the Normal School
concerto, Mr. Adolf De Qninze, of Tarentum,
has attracted much attention as a violinist,
who though quite voung, possesses exceptional
skill and talent. He should be heard in Pltts
bunr this winter. Mr. Emmanuel Schmauk's
piano recitals, with instructive talks unon the
composers, the selections, eta, have been a
prominent feature or the session. Mr.
Schmauk's two last programmes Included a
Bach Prelude and Figue in C minor, Beetho
ven's Sonata "Appassionate," Schubert's Im
Sromptu, Op 142. No. 3, Chopin's Nocturne Op
No.l.and Fantasie Impromptu. On 6S, Ru
binstein's "fataccato Etudl," Liszt's "Rigolet

decision had been anticipated by the people,

from 5,000 to 10,000 votes this decision is
considered as almost final in the capital
However, there are others who rather ig

towns in the race will now turn to and com

So great is the demand for the services of
Mr. John Howard, the well-known voice
teacher of New York City, that he will
probably be unable to holdopen the hour
for calling at his studio, 502 Penn ave. (from
2:30 to 3:30), beyond this week.
Perhaps no other singing teacher in this
country has so wide a reputation. The
Philadelphia Inquirer writes:
"Among the most successful exponents of
the value of scientific training is Mr. John
Howard, of New York, whose remarkable
achievements in restoring injured vocal
powers, extending the compass and volume
of tone, and giving command of the organs
of utterance, have won him the highest
encomiums from orators, singers and the
professional public. Mr. Howard has been
induced to establish classes in this city,
and has already produced some remarkable
results here."
The New York Independent writes:
"The name of Mr. John Howard is too
strongly guaranteed by both prominent
artists and influential citizens to raise a
doubt in our minds of his ability to carry
out bis plans ot vocal culture success
fully." The London ( Eas."i Musical Times snenTrn
of him as "the head ot the physiological
school of voice culture."
Mr. Howard has decided to remain six
weeks longer. The past two weeks have
proved his claims to produce surprising re
sults, for nearly every pupil has realized
remarkable improvement; many a complete
transformation from feeble, husky sounds
to the full, resonant tones of true artistic
