' Eminent Musicians to Be Heard in Omaha This Season
the work
!n other
well known for many yrira ns
one of lh leading musicians
of Omaha, has this season
chosen to enter tno field as a
concert manager, taklnr up
that . has been carried on
years by Mrs. Turner. Miss
Hopper and others. Irt the aolectlon of
her artists, Miss Sorenson has displayed
excellent musical Judgment, having
chosen the best America, has to offer
this searon. Realizing haw many muRia
lovers are unable, to hear tha best ar
tists on account of hlsh prices, Miss Sor
enson has placed ths subscription price
of the series at ths lowest possible figure
In order to Rive everyone an opportunity
to attend. That this spirit 1 tully ap
preciated Is shown by the large number
of season tickets which she has already
old. Not only are the Omaha people
taklag a lively Interest in Miss Soren
on's splendid musical series, but many
from all parts of Iowa and Nehraska are
signifying their Intention of being pres
ent at the conenrts.
Evan 'Williams, the noted Welsh tenor,
will open the concert season November 9
with a recital. Mr. W illiams Is one of
the most popular singers of the day and
Is said to possess a lyric tenor of unusual
purity. This season he wt'l be heard with
symphony orchestras, at the big musical
festivals In oratorio and on many concert
November 21 Omaha will have the first
opportunity of hearing the celebrated
Knetsel Quartet, which is now beginning
Its twenty-seventh season. This quartet
stands without an equal on either side
of the Atlantic, and only recently the
crltlo of the Boston Advertiser said: "We
wish to state emphatically that tho Kncl
els have not yet been rivalled and cer
tainly not eclipsed."
Mr. Knelscl and his associates are re
sponsible for a standard of chamber
muslo playing in America such as Is
equaled In few countries in the world.
The mere announcement of December
t as the date of Maud Powell's recital
will be almost sufficient to make the
standing room only sign necessary, Judg
ing from the many Inquiries Miss Soren
son has received In regard to her con
cert. She Is the most striking; female
figure In the musical world today out
side of the operatlo field. Wlthouf sex
distinction she la admitted to be the
greatest violinist America has produced,
while abroad she Is ranked among the
great mature masters of the bow.
January 9 will brinR to Omaha one of
the most talked of singers of the day,
Madame Jeanne Gei-vlllo-Reache, the
beautiful contralto, who is creating such
a sensation by her voice, beauty and dra
matlo ability. Madams Uervllle-Reache
after achieving notable success at the
Opera Comlque, Paris; Covent Garden,
London and Theatre de la Monnale,
Brussels was engaged by Oscar Hammer
stein for the Manhattan Opera company.
New York, where sho duplicated her
European successes. This season she Is
especially engaged as visiting artist with
the Chicago and Boston Opera compan
ies. Madame Reache has also won treat
success In recital work and .the critics
from coast to coast have been lavish in
her praise.
Vladimir De Pachmann, one of the
most noted pianists of this generation
will play for Omaha musicians for the
first time February 15. Cmaha being one
of the fortunate cities Included In his
farewell tour. De 1-aehmann Is renowned
as the most remarkable living Chopin
player and all pianists will be glad of
the opportunity of hearing this great
artist, who Is likewise noted for his In
teresting personality.' He began his tour
In New York October 30 and in speak
ing of It Richard ..idrlch of the iNew
York Times said: "He still commands
all Ms old marvel of 'touch', his old
maglo of delicacy, filmy Iridescent tone,
of sighing pianissimo, or purring rippling
passages, of clear articulation to trans
form the piano Into a celestial instru
ment. It Is ravishing and it beguiles tho
senses of the listener In a way that
hardly any other piano playing can do.

HANK you Miss Garden!
We who chronicle and re
view the musical happenings
in the citizen of the west may
rejoice Indeed over the fact
that we are western critics,
tor no less a personage than Miss Mary
Garden has come to our support. In
a recent Interview given to the New York
World she pays her respects to Ameri
can muslo critics and says: "I think
some of the younger ones good, but I
found that the old ones were about as
bad ss they could be. They didn't know
what they were writing, and had to pre
tend that they did. They didn't write
what they thought, but what they
thought- they ought to think. They wanted
to appear smart before the rubllc.
They've been kind enought to me, so It
may seem ungrateful to tell the truth
about them, but It Is a fact that the
musical critics of New York, particu
larly the ones with the greatest reputa.
tlons, are simply absurd. There are
critics In the west who are better. At
least they write what they really think."
Again thanking Miss Garden, all the
western critics may take the remark tp
themselves, as no one knows to whom Miss
Garden refers: ao let all take it and be
satisfied, until Miss Mary Untdcn ob
jects. Meanwhile, had Mr. Henderson some
thing to tay? Or did we hear Mr.
KreliMW remark anything? Or was that
Mr, Ftuck who just left tha hall?
Old somnoletn Cambridge has turned
over la Its sleep and discovered that
someone was talking about rag-tlinc.
We thought out here that this whole
rag-time question had been cussed and
discussed, had been sworn at. and by, ac
cording to the point of. view, and that
It bad finally been put away with the
other toys, the baid-hcaded dolls, the
eyeless plajter-of-parls kittens, the
crippled soldiers, and ths wrecked trains.
But no, out of ths Umbo of the past,
out of the dusty garret of forgotten
things, the old raj doll Is ragged out,
aiid made to do duty again after Its
former existence had baen supposedly
Professor Philip Greeley C'lapp of Har
vard la quoted In the Musical America
columns as having said that: "itag
time Is a form of inutio which la very
cLavractsrlstlo of this eouatty and caoaut
be neglected In any consideration
American music as a whole."
How serlousl
Perhaps that Is why foreigners have
been unwilling to treat us seriously when
we have talked of American muslo. Per
haps It la because so many learned
Americans Insist that the rag-time pro
ductions of the music-hall and the vaude
ville be examined with care and judg
ment, and that they be taken solemnly
Into account when speaking of "Ameri
can muslo as a whole," as the Poctor
Professor eays.
The professor should know and doubt
less does know that the scientific fact
beneath ragtime Is the fact of Syncopa
tion. That In the beat muslo we have
syncopation, which the dictionary defines
as "a term In music applied to the con
necting of an unaccented with the next
accented beat," or "the tylng-over a weak
beat to the next strong beat"; In other
words. It is what the. colored gem'man
apd the old mammy do when they clap
the hand and stamp the foot alternately,
which you have scon done as far back
as you can remember.
Now this Is negro In its character. And
yet it Is used by some of the greatest
composers who never heard or ever saw
a negro, and syncopation (which Is what
tho negro does) has therefore an absolute
basis of Its own, and negro music uses
syncopation without scientific knowledge
of the fact. Place the beat of the foot
and the Cap of the hand at the same
Instant and your syncopation Is done.
Now -reduce the proposition to Its fund
amentals: Eyncopatlon Is a form of music
"which is very characteristic of this
country": not at all. Negro music Is
characteristic strictly of this country. Not
at all. It la characteristic of the negro
race. It Is more characteristic of Ken
tucky, Georgia, Tennessee than It Is of
Maine, or New Hampshire, or llllnol
(It Is not characteristic of American
muslo.) It is a phase of it. It dei not
suggest Mexico, nor Oregon, nor Alaska
And the learned professor might just
ss welt say that In the "consideration
of German muslo," ss a whole, the fash
ton of the Germain muslo hall "cannot
be negiectea. ' tur rrencn or Italian, or
English.) Thai other nations do not dis
cuss the popular song of the day, the
popular style of the music hall song of
the day, In discussion of music. It is
outside. It Is a froth, it is a passing
ephemeral thing of the hour, and Is not to
be taken In sober earnest, ulthough It
lias Its place.
But there are hosts of things which
have their place which do not pass Into
history. There aro lots of things a man
does every day which wo would not
carve on his tombstone nor incorporate
Into a sketch of his life.
And perhaps there Is the trouble with
us. We "take In" all, and expect to
discriminate afterwards. We Insist that
all kinds of music shall be taken into
consideration, grave and sedate, and se
lection made after careful analysis by
learned professors. Whereas all the other
nations dispense with all that conglam
meratlon of stuff, and by a simple law
of separation keep those things out of
consideration which do not belong
Perhaps we will some day devour less
and digest more. Bousa marches are bully
good marches, but musicians, while giv
ing them due praise, consider thom mfrely
what they say they are, marches. Now
these are practically standard for their
species, and the learned American pro
fessor would doubtless "not neglect them
In any consideration of American muslo
as a whole," but we do not hear much
of tho bandmasters of Germany or Italy
or France as writing music, which "can
not be neglected In a conHideration of
the muslo" of those peoples aa a whole.
Their band muslo marches and their
medleys and potpourris and so forth,
aro a phase of their music, but are not
characteristic of the national music.
