one ot French, and another of English.
Her voice la not a large or powerful
one. but It Is of good quality and range,
and Is welt "placed ' and true. She
uses the somber tone, too, constantly,

more experience. She has good poise

a distinct success.

tion to the programme, and was heard In
two numbers a group of Chopin, Includ
ing a maxurka. a raise, and a scherxo.
and the Mendelssohn-LIsst "Wedding
March' and "Dance of the Elves." Al

Chopin works, which show his spon

Fabian is one of the greatest American
pianists. It was a special regret that
'no encores were permitted.

flowers made a handsome hedge across
