Too much cannot bo said In pr.ilse of the
recital given by Mine. Muentoforlng , as
sisted by her pupils of the Sacred Heart ,
Wednesday afternoon at the Linlnger gallery
under the auspices of the ladles' Musical
society , being the ono hundred and fourth
muslcalo given by that worthy organization
of women who love music for music's suite.
The nudlonco was largo , -much , larger in
deed than ono would expect to sou at a
Wednesday mutnico , the gnllory being
crowded by the friends of the verv success
ful teacher and her promising pupils. And
the enthusiasm which the members aroused
qulto compensated the mndame and the
nlavors for the hard work which they had
in the preparation of the programme.
The programme wns remarkable for Its
breadth anil the number of celebrated com
posers introduced to the audience who are
favorites with thogroatpianlstsof the world.
IU rendition was scholarly , oven musiclanly ,
and whllo the young ladles who assisted wcro
moreorlessnorvous.no amount of hurried
work could quite shadow the evidences of
thoroughness , which Is a predominating
feature of Mine. Muontofcrlng's touching.
ThtiJubal Overture" by Von Wobcr ,
a number for two pianos , not often
heard these Uuys , opened the pro
gramme , Mmo. Mucntofcring and Miss
Scouton playlnc the llrst instrument ,
Miss McShnna and Miss Dotan the second.
The selcction.ls ono of the pi-eat compositions
written for tha king of Instrument * and was
given with line appreciation of Its many
"Dauso Tschorltesso" bv Hitter was second
on the list plavcil by the inndamo at the tlrst
and Miss Morley at the second piano. To
many of the audience the selection was qulto
n novelty nnd probably uioro strouirly en
joyed on that account. It Is distinct
ively u "show pieco" written lu
a florid style that requires a
masterful tcchnlipin for lit proper rendition.
MHa Morley , In this number showed a dis
position to accentuate the ttmpo , necessi
tating a corresponding accelerated movement
on the part of tnollrstplano which marred its
beauty somewhat , but the nervousness of the
young lady soon wet a olT and by the time the
tlnnle was reached she was in perfect accord ,
HnlsLltig with credit lo herself and her
Miss ilnrnborgcr and Miss Mocller pravo a
pleasing interpretation of "Italy" by Mosz-
kowskt. "In dor freln Natur , " by Batter Is
an exquisite bit of melody for two pl'inos In
troducing the wood sprites , the ilower sprites
and the water sprites. Miss Mary Nash
played the scc6nd piano and Mmo. Mucnic-
foring the ilrst , anil they won a deserved
round of applause at IU close. MUs Nash Is
a promising Dlajor , having both strength
nuil discernment. Mmo. Mucutoforinc
gave two solos , the tint movement of
Hcethovcn'a sonata Op. 53 and Schubert's
sonata No. 10 playing the scherzo , and allegro -
gro ma non troppo. Of the SCO or more songs
which Schubert wrote probablv llfty or sixty
will llvo for all tlmo. All of bis compositions
are tuneful anil Imaginative to a degree , and
when played ns Mme , Mucntofonng plays
Scbubort they cannot helu but make a pro
found Impression. It U rare , oven among the
virtuosi , that ono hours so beautiful an Inter
pretation of Schubort's as Mmo. Muontafor-
Ing gives them. Ksecntlally soulful , with u
poetic tlngo of temperament , the niadamo
juade a lasting Impression ou Wednesday as
ono of the crcat exponents of n composer who
is heard too llttlo on the concert stace.
"Tho Dance of De.ith" by Saint Saens wns
the coin of the performance , played by Miss
AlcShane and her teacher. Miss McShano
showed a remiirkablo knowlodo ; of the piano
and her technique was the subject of much
congratulation. She Is undoubtedly tbo
madnmo's ' most promising pupil which Is sayIng -
Ing a great dual as all the performers
are excellent considering their ago.
Tlio ' 'Tarmhausor"
march for two pianos
brought the muslcalo to n close : Mmo. Mucn-
tefcnng , Miss AlcAdams at the first piano.
MUs Uolan and Miss Nash at the second. All
tno young ladles wcro the recipients of tlow-
cw , and it was qulto a triumphant day in
