Miss Fnrrnr Appears as Mnr
rueritc in "Faust' in
Wngner'a "Thlstan und Isolde" waa
sung at the Metropolitan Opera House
yesterday afternoon before n large audi
ence. The performance served to allow
lludolf lletger, the newly nrrlved tenor,
to disclose his Impersonation of King
Mark' knight. This proved to be an
achievement possessing merits of genulns
worth, together with soma shortcomlnfi
which might have been expected by
those already acquainted with the atyla
of the singer
Mr, l!ergcfs 7"Hfiiii had noble presence
and dignity or bearing, sincerity of pur
poso and much effectiveness In certain
episodes. His first nnd last acts were
better than his second. Mr. Hcrger Is nt
his best In the eleclamntory portlona of
the music. He Is not primarily a lyric
nrtlst. vet hit share In the great duet
of the second act was not without muslc.il
The greatest denclency In his nrt Is in
the department of tone. Sometimes free
and resonant, his voice Is more often thin
and constrnlned In emission. Color ti
decidedly lucking, and for this renson a
want rif varletv In expression is noticed.
In enunciation Mr. Hcrger shows the I
benefit of German expetience, albeit his
text sometimes suffers from the Idio
syncrasies of his tone. Hut on the whole
his is a manly und Interesting Tristan.
The other members of the cast had nil
been hiurd before In their parts nnd had
nothing new to offer yesterday. Mme.
Fremstad shared tho honors of the per
formance with Mr. Hcrger and AHtig
rather belter than she did n few days
ngo as Xifiilinde. Mme. Ober was a
vigorous rather than a winning irnnjjnaie.
Mr. Toscnnlnl conducted tyid while the
nuanclng of the orchestra was admirable
there were moments when the body of
tone wns too large. However, the un
fortunates who sit In orchestra stalls at
the Metropolitan are apparently to protest
In vain against the orchestral thunderliigs.
The conductors either cannot or will not
In the evening "Faust" was given. The
cast was one which has been heard on
several occasions In Gounod's opera. Miss
Fnrrnr now has a monopoly of the role of I
.ljiiryurrifn, which she sings sometimes
well, sometimes 111, according to her un
certain physical condition or her still
more uncertain moods. Mr. Martin as

Klenore Altmnn, pianist, gave her an
nual recital last evening at Aeolian Hall.
Mls.s Altmati Is a young local musician
who has pursuexl the study of the piano
forte with Slgismund Stojowskl. She wns
first heard here a few seasons ngo and in
her few public appearances has gained
some measure of favor with lovers of
the branch In nrt which she represents.
Her programme was of a high order In
Se-lectlon. It opeiie-d with lleethoveii's
sonata In A flat major, opus I'C, that was
followed by thu It minor sonata of Chopin
nnd two pieces by llrabms, his Inter
mezzo, opus lis, in K Hat minor, and th
Cnprlcclo. opus 76, In H minor.
Miss Attman's performance In both
sonatas was In many respects favorable,
though she was more successful th the
Chopin work. Shu plajed them both in
a manner that showed taste, and save
for a few slips, with a smoothness of
technic as well as good tone and most
She wus generally happy In the ex
pression of sentiment, though It at times
bordered upon that of sentimentality. Her
style Is one strictly feminine ih Its com
pass and herein lay the chief defects In her
geueial delivery. It was one lucking In
power. She understands well how to
sustain Interest throughout a number or
even an entlro programme. If with this
asset of fine natural talenta and her
present i xcellent accomplishments of
taste nnd technic Miss Altmnn will devote
heitelf to the general broadening of her
art her place among oung pianists will
bo much greater than It is at the present
The further numbers on tho programme
were Schumann's novelette in F klmrp
minor, two pieces by Paderewski,
"Legende" In A Hat major nnd a
"Caprice," and Stojowski'a "Vnl.se Im

Mischa Kltiian, the Husslan violinist,
ruvh his second recital yesterday after

was very similar In Its arrangement to
the one h had given at Ills Mist recital
two weeks before. At that time he
played a sonata, two conceitos and a

Included Moznrt's sonata No. 10, the 11

selections were the romance in G major of

Regarding thu performance there Is
nothing new to be said, as the features
of Mr. Klmaii's stlo of delivery have
been so frequently discussed here. His
readings were ngaln on an astonishing
level of violin virtuosity and In Interpreta
tion they piovlded a rich measure for
enjoyment, on thn emotional as well as
tho practical side of music.
It was violin playing that contained n
genutnii musical purpose and the tribute
of appreciative response It gained for the
young violinist from his hearers was fully
He was ably assisted at the piano by
Percy Kahn. The audience was of fair
Ue, but not large. This may have been
due to tho fact that Mr. Klnian had been
