<Vntlna«d from eeeood pair
being. One would think, however, that the mem
bers of the orchestra would flnd some little diffi
culty In following; the conductor's beat from hia
right hand, for It Is at once less precise and less
noticeable than the white stick generally used.
IJut there was nothing in yesterday's perform
ances which would lead one to state that the ab
penrfl of a baton made any difference to the or-
True. there wt:«i here ar.d th»>re ,i want
of unanimity and absolute finish In the playing of
Tschalkowsky's symphony, but then that, often
happens with a conductor who does use the baton.
M Safonoff. as far as I could see from the audi
ence, has Invented no new kind of technique for
his right hand. Most conductors hold the A>;Uon
with the thumb and forefinger, leaving the '.there
for the indication of special expression, together
with the left hand, and the Russtar. musician prac
tically held his hand as if it were lißhtly poising
a baton. If a conductor finds it easier to do with
out k stick, by all means let him discard It, and
that Is all there is In the matter.
Mr. Baughan then institutes a comparison be
tween Mr. Safonoff and other conductors known
In New- York aa well as London:
' I must confess to a slight degree of disappolnt
ment In M. Wasslll Safonoff. Here in I>cindon we
such a high standard of conducting. Hf-rr
..irtner has shown us what can be done with
■ Ue'fthoven symphony; the late, M. I^amoureux
first acquainted us with what finish of orchestral
playing may mean: Dr. Riehter, with his I
personality, has ulways been with us; our own
Mr Henry J. Wood has grown into a veritable
orchestral virtuoso: and. finally, Herr Arthur Nik
lsch haa again and 1 again electrified us with his
wizard like command of the orchestra. Then we
are acquainted with Herr Mottl, Herr Stelnbacli and
a host of lesser men. By a strange chance M.
Safonoft chose as his chief work Tschalkowsky's
Fifth Symphony, with which Nlkisch has made his
greatest trlumpns. Possibly, if we did not remem
b<r the Leipzig conductor's achievements, we
should place Herr Safonoff very high indeed. His
reading of the work was Individual, and the en
ergy of his climaxes astonishing. He played less
"tricks" with the mustc than Herr Nlkisch. and
at thj- Bnme time in«!sted mor« keenly on Its
rhythmic qualities. Tl>- sentiment was more
straightforward; there was less passion, less sing
ing quality In the phruslnx: a more physical and
ltt«8 nervous energy. Nlkisch sweeps you along
with wave after wave of emotion, making the
whole symphony rise to a gigantic climax. Safonoft
la not a dry conductor by any means. The tone
ha produces from his orchestra Is rich and plas
tic, and hla climaxes are terrtflo In their energy.
But with It all there is a certain obviousness of
conception, a straightforward musical emotion,
which could hardly lend a new Interest to so famil
iar a work aa Tsohaikowskys Fifth Symyhony.
His phrasing lent the music no new poignancy of
expression. Indeed, the, impassioned melodies
might have been caressed with a more inspiring
hand. Then In complex passages the band was
not quite clear as It might have been.
Beethoven's "Leonora overture No. 8 was not
read by Mr. Ba.for.O'T with any particular sub
tlety. The melody after the fa.-tsous trumpet call
was not sung with sufficient expression; the scale
puiifiuges had not th* demoniac energy of Herr
we.lngartr.er. and the strlnc paasage at the opening
of th* final presto was slightly wanting In edge.
The conclusion of the overture also lost something
of its nobility. Mozart's "Elne Kielne Nachtmusik"
eer«v>ade was, strangely enough, almost the most
perfect work done by the orchestra. The conductor
nan a fine sense of Mozartean melody and of the
rhythmical antithesis of the eighteenth century.
Mr. Baughan thus sums up:
M. Safonoff did not strike me as a very great
conductor. If one may Judge from on* concert. But
he has the quality of inspiring hla players to their
best efforts, and he obtained from the splendid
London Symphony Orchestra gome flne'.y sonorous
tonal effects. If one may say so. he concentrates
himself on the purely 3en*uous aspects of muslo.
He has not the finely adjusted sense of proportion
of a Weinsrartner. nor his power of obtaining a
blinding light In his climaxes: he does not posses*
th* unflagging magnetism of Niktsch, dot his tm
preme command or th* orchestra as an organic ln
■ tmment; but there la nothing small or dull or
anemic In Safonoff's conducting. AJI Is planned
on big lines; all la maaslv*. full of energy. Are and
Another London critic described Mr. Bcfonoff a*
"a great artist In his way. a man of remarkable
will power, decision and Intellectual force."
One-half of the conductnrshlp queation In con
nection with the operatic enterprise of Mr. Ham
mereteln was settled when Mr. Lemndro ''ampa
narl was engaged a few days before Mr. Hjunmer
steln sailed for Europe to complete his arrange
ments. Italian opera conductors are. not so promi
nently In the popular eye as orchestra loaders, f..r
the reason that there are few Italian operatic
establishments outside of Italy, while aympbonlc
concerts are given In all the large cities of Eu
rope. Nevertheless those who watch the musical
doings of the universe know that even In the Ital
ian field there are Mtar* who distinguish themselves
from the majority of their professional brethren by
virtue of greater skill, greater grift* or greater de
votion to purpone. Some of these have been men
tioned tn connection with the new opera. hous«\ —
Toscanellt, for Instance, who Is not onl/ a Wu«ner
specialist, but an almost Intolerable seaiot In his
department of artlstlo activity. He can scarcely
be considered as a candidate, however. Masche
roßi a conductor of fine gifts and superb equip
ment. Is more likely to be approached, and. In de
fault of his engagement It would not surprise the
knowing If Clc-ofonte C*mpaalni. a brother of the

Mr Campanarl was born in Rovlgo, Venice, on
October 20. 1559. He took to the violin as a
child and was introduced to London musical
society in the parlors of Lady Wllburn by Sir Julius
Benedict. At fourteen years of as«\ having aiready
travelled in Italy as a prodigy for two years, he
entered the Conservatory at Milan under Antonio
I'.azzini. studying counterpoint and harmony under
Michele Saladlno. After graduation he studied con
ducting with Franco Faccio. then began his pro
fessional career as leader of the violins and as
sistant conductor In various Italian opfra houses.
After visiting France and revisiting London he
came to America In 18S3 and effected his entrance
on the concert platform here at tne fourth concert
of the first season of the Boston Symphony Orches

After some time spent in giving concerts In the
United States Mr. ramrAnari settled in Boston, be

Catholic festival in the old Music Hall, and was in
charge of the music In the Church of tha Immacu

and was next heard of as conductor of a series of
symphony concerts at tho theatre La Scala, In

as Dvorak's symphony "From the New World."

Next he was engaged for a series of concerts with

Stgnor Boned, who has been engaged by Mr. Hun
merstein for his opera season at his new opera
bouse, In West 34th street, is the most formidable
of Caruso's rivals In Europe. The dlffe.rern-e be
tween the two great tenors is one frequently met
with in artists who are recognized as being at the
top of the ladder— Signer Bond has become famous
because of his fine art, Signor Caruso because of
his phenomenal voice. I'ntll Mme Sembrich Intro
duced him in Berlin five years ago, Slgnor Bond
was little known outside of his native Italy and
Russia. In St. Petersburg, where he sings every
season, he had held his own with such men as
Tamagno, Masinl and Marconi, before he was priv
ileged to win the. attention of the Germans by h'.s
singing in Mm»». Sembrleh's company In Berlin. He
was born at Loreto. whose gTotto attracts thou
cands of Catholli pilgrims, every year. His father
was a poor laborer, and the first money that Ales
aandro earned to help In the support of a large
family was by singing In the church ctolr on feast
days as his ancestors had don* for generations.
When eighteen yearse old he walked to Pesaro In
order to aave his voice tried by PedrotU. then at
the head of the Roastnl conservatory. He was ac
cepted as a pupil, but. having no money, h<* lived
at Fano with an uncle, and walked back and forth
from town to town for his lessors. After a year's
study he won a stipend of *I<V and removed to
Pesaro. wher« he rema.lr.ed at study under Felice
Coen. Then came the beginning of a new career.
He had married the daughter of a man of wealth,
who was ambitious that he should s'.'.cceed In the
cperattc world. HU first engagement was at the
Teatr.) Real«. in Parma, where he sang the little
part of Fenton in Verdi's "Falstaff,." He made a
bit. and was almost Immediately engaged at La
■eala, In Milan, wher*: he won a triumph In
"Fuust." After that his fame spread rapidly, and
London beard him In 1900. He did not make a large
Impression at rlrst. but now he has an enthualastic
following In the English capital.
