MR. EAMES' RECITAL.

gave what was
billed as a. "piano forte lecture recital"
have been inspired by the genius of
ihe great poeL Mr. Eames in no well
qualified for thitt laut part of the en
tertalnment that comment is perhaps
unecessary, but it is safe to say that a
Lincoln audience has never heard him
to greater advantage. He played tho
incidental music written by Edward.
German for tho revivals of "Henry
VIII" and "Romeo and Juliet," besides
certain traditional tunes valuable
rather from an antiquarian than a
musical point of view. But the crux of
his performance was the beautiful ren
dition of the rarely heard "Nocturne"
from Mendelssohn's "Midsummer
Night's Dream" music, as well as the
"Wedding March" and fairy music
from the same work. In these, as well
as In the better known "Hark, Hark,
the Lark," transcribed by Liszt from
the song of Schubert, Mr. Eames play
ed with the qualities which mark the
superlatively finished performer. In
tellectually, temperamentally, tech
nically, he left nothing to be desired.
Of course, the Liszt transcription o
the "Midsummer Night's Dream"
music was used as the performer told
us the great transcriber had added new
beauties to the score but the nocturne
was played In its virgin purity of out
line. Besides the?. works Mr. Eames
sang a number of lyrics selected from
the wonderful treasure house of Shake
spearian verse and set to music by
composers ranging from Purcell to
Mrs. H. H. A. Beach. Among the best
of these were the famous "Who Is Syl
via?" of Schubert and a modern set
ting of "Blow, Blow, Thou Winter
Wind," by Sargeant. Mr. Eames pos
sesses a clear tenor voice, well posed
and of -r-movlBge,adofte"'fctltterl'
quality, of which the middle range is
especially beautiful in timbre. His
singing gave unmistakable pleasure to
the audience, who thus became ac
quainted with certain rarely heard
Mr. Eames emphasized in his talk
upon "Shakespeare in Music" the fact
that tbe great poet was and is today a
source of inspiration to other artists.
Painting and music as well as litera
ture have been enriched by the wealth
In these plays. The lecturer spoke of
the operas and overtures which have
been inspired by these plays. Alto
gether, as a result of patient individual
research into "Shakespearians," Mr.
Eames has succeeded In creating a
novel and interesting musical lecture,
which should be of great value to both
musician and general public, and his
specific gift of interpretation made his
singing and playing a pleasure to those
who heard him.
Tbe Palladlans are to be congratu
lated upon their artistic venture in se
curing Mr. Eames. It is to be hoped
that the fact that it was also a finan
cial success will encourage them to con
tinue in the same line of entertain
ment. The program Is appended:
