Music by the Boston Symphony
Club tnat Was Music
4 The Ladies Musical society may well
be proud of the triumph in the high: art
of "music that was scoreel unelcr its aus
pices last night by the Boston Symphony
Orchestral Club. Larger audiences have
greeted less deserving artists at the opera
house time and again heretofore, but a
more critical one probably never assem
bled under its roof. Nearly every local
artist in the city was present, and the
generous manner in which the members
of the excellent oiganization mentioned
were received and applauded, was suffi
cient recognition of their meritorious
The club as a whole showeel that it wa3
fully able to grapple with this yery
highest order of music.
Miss Elsa Clark Cushing, the only vo
cal soloist member of the club, acquitted
herself nobly, and added new friends to
her already large acquaintanceship. She
is a beautiful young laely of pleasing ad
dress anil good stage presence. Her ex
quisite rendition of Gounod's ' Jewel
Song" from Faust earned her a
merited recall, accompanieel by a
beautiful corsage boquet from some
ardent admirer. She responded with
Suppe's flirtation song "Proposing" never
heard here before on the lyric stage. Ilerr
Charles Palm accompanieel her on the
piano from memory when she sang his
composition, "DuBist Wie Eina Blume,"
and after singing Baton Fanuing's "I
Have Something Sweeet to Tell You,"
in the most bewitching manner, she was
obliged to respond to anethcr recall with
Bluincntnal's "Venetian Boat Song."
Adolph Burose playeel Demereman's
"Grand Air varie" as a flute sele, anel
as an encore gaye Mollenhour's " Night
ingale Song " as a piccillo solo. Mr.
Willis Nowell recalletl yisions of Ole
Bull's tire when he playeel Sarasate's
" Fantasie" from Faust as a violin sob),
and acknowleelged a recall with the
" Polish Dance." Ilerr Hichard Stoelzer
gave hi? own composition, a fantasie,
"Povr le Viola d'Amour." on that
instrument and respondeel to a spiriteel
encore with "Robin Adair." He is the
first artist to attempt a solo in this
country on the fourtecn-stringed fieldlc,
anelthe difficult bowing and fingering it
requires will be well understood when it
is rememberd that seven of the strings
are vibratory accompanists to the ones
bowed and fingereel. Ilerr Philip Rote
well earned the reputation of being the
first 'cello soloist ever hearel here, ami
the encore he received was a merited rec
ognition of his artistic work. He play
ed Choppin-SerYnis' "Nocturne" and
Popper's "Gazotte" arranged for orches
tral accompaniment. A detailed critic
