CHAS. L. COTTING,
How He HlKuvetl HIn Joy nt a "Par.
The following anecdote of Wagner is
told by Alfred Kolsenauer, the pianist,
who, as a pupil of Liszt, knew the
composer of "Parsifal" personally.
"Wagner was always more or less
self conscious," says Kelsenauer, "and
only at rare intervals did his friends
see him in moods that could be called
anything but premeditated. In Bal
renth l saw him In a highly character
istic situation, and I never shall for
get It. It was at a rehearsal of 'Par
sifal.' The garden scene had Just been
admirably sung and danced, where
upon Wagner, In his exuberant Joy,
hugged and kissed the artists, and
Uien, quite beside himself, got down on
all fours and barked like a dog, con
cluding his exhibition by throwing his
legs lu the air and balancing himself
on his head.
"At this Interesting moment Liszt
and several of his pupils, including
myself, walked on the stage. Quick as
a Hash, Liszt, who always played tho
role of Wagner's self constituted de
fender, said grimly, Well, if that's a
pose, It's the hardest one lu the world
to hold, by thunder!' tKor the sake of
the melstor we tried" to restrain our
mirth, but tho effort was not wholly
successful. I firmly believe, however,
that Wagner himself was secretly
pleased at the sensation for which he
was responsible." Harper's Weekly.
