SKILL AND POETRY EXHIBITED
By HENRIETTA M. REK8.
The fourth number of the. Charity
Concert course given by the Omaha
Retailers' association took place
Monday night at the Auditorium Ig
nace Jan Paderewskl, the world re
nowned pianist, than whom there
is no more interesting personality
upon the concert stage today, was
presented in a recital of wide di
versity of style and content.
The attendance at this series of con
certs has always been excellent and last
evening an audience even larger than
usual was In evidence. In spite of the
number of extra chairs put In upon the
first .floor, there was not a vacant seat
to be seen downstairs to the very last
row. and a splendid representation ww
made In the gallery.
neeeptlon la Spontaaeoaa.
Many in the audience not knowing Mr.
Paderewskl's preference for playing in
a dimly lighted hall. Could not under
stand tha lowering of the lights. Per
sonally I rather like It, the softness of
rsdlance being restful to the eye and
allowing one to concentrate attention
more thoroughly upon the muslo Itself.
When Mir. Paderewskt entered, many In
the audience rose as a mark of courtesy
to a great artist. This Is a deiictittul
custom, both In Europe and In manv of
the larger eastern cities, and one whUt
should find favor everywhere.
Mr. Paderewskl proved again lr his
program of last evening his many '.Malms
to the high rank accorded him In tho
musical world. His poetry of thought,
breadth of conception and mastery of
technic were clearly In evidence through
out the program. He has an impressive
personality, which is felt In great meai
ure through his playing, and which has
a way. of tricking the mind away frt m
the music itself and suggesting thoughts
and ideas through it.
This was especially so In the old
French numbers and the Chopin group.
Mr. Paderewskl is essentially an emo
tional player. An Immense variety of
light and shade flits constantly through
his music, and a wealth of tonal beauty
radiates out at will, sometimes from the
very heart of a heavy chord passage.
His softer work was of the finest, and
his poetry of interpretation whs most
The program opened with the "Fantasia
opus 16," by Schubert. The many beau
ties of this rarely beautiful number were
carefully brought out. The allegro con
fuoco was played with great breadth of
tone and brilliancy, in contrast to the
lovely adagio, which glowed with lyric
beauty and led through the presto to the
brilliant closing movement. This was fol
lowed by. three dainty old French minia
tures. "La Bandoline" and "Le Carillon."
by F. Couperon, and "Le Coudou," by
Daquln. Here there was such a subtlety
or color, such delicacy and elegance of
style as to completely captivate the hear
era. Rosses Enthnslaam.
The "Ktudes Bymphoniques," by Schu
mann, were wonderfully played. In these
there wss a magnetic sense of rythm, a
clearness of exposition through the nu
merous variations, and a last tremendous
sweep of tonal power as the muslo rose
to the grand climax of the closing etude
which was impressive in the highest de
gree and evoked great enthuslaam in

sponded with "Warura," by Schumann,
interpreted with exquisite sentiment.
The Chopin group were among the
most enjoyable of the entire program, tho
beautiful "Nocturne in E major," played
with exquisite charm, preceded a group
of carefully chosen Etudes, tho beauteous
melodies for which were carefully devel
oped, one with appealing quality, singing
out from a witchery of dainty accom
paniment, another powerful and eloquent,
while the third was full of fascination
in its meditative mood and warmth of
tonal charm. The "Butterfly Etude,"
played with utmost grace and dlsttctlvely
Individual interpretation, was repeated.
"Masurka In A Minor," waa to the
writer, one of the gems of the evening.

the memory of a dance than tho dance
