CAPITAL WILL HAVE
BIG MUSICAL FEAST
Alice Nielsen, Schumann
Heink, and Nordica Are
Among the Attractions.
Tbe next two weeks will fully make
up for the dearth of musical attractions
during Christmas week, for the list -of
names of noted singers, who appear
both In concert and with orchestras. Is
Indeed a galaxy not often found In such
Alice Nielsen and Gabriel Ysaye, son
of the famous Eugene, appear In con
cert;' Mme. Schumann-Hclnk sings with
the .New York Philharmonic -under
Joseph Stransky; Mme. Clara Butt, the
contralto, appears with her husband,
Kennedy Kumford, In concert; Nordica
will appear, in concert after a two-year
absence, and last, but by no manner of
means least, Elena Gerhardt appears
an the soloist of the Boston Symphony
under Dr: Carl Muck. Several attrac
tions of more than ordinary local In
terest will be given, chief among these

Helnrlch Hammer. '
. Saturday afternoon will mark the return-
to Washington of .the Flonzaley
Quartet, an organization that has en
deared Itself to all true patrons of good
music as few other organizations ever
The concert, which will be given in
the ballroom of the New Wlllard Hotel,
will be under the direction-ef T. Arthur
Smith. The personnel of the quartet is
hardly less noteworthy than the excel
lence or their music
It comprises Adolfo Bettl and Alfred
IJochon, "Violins; Augo Ara, viola, and
Iwan D'Archambeau, viollncello. These
artists are unique in that they suoorai
nate personal ambition to the attain
ment of perfection in concerted en
deavor and have pledged themselves
never to accept an engagement of any
kind except in conjunction, wun tne
brother members of the Quartet.
BTor the concert Saturday, beginning
at 4:30 o'clock, a program has been ar
ranged which will delight the patrons of
this ultra organization to a degree ex
ceeding even their most pretentious ef
forts in the past.
For the January concert of the. Bos
ton Symphony Orchestra, which will
be given In the New National Theater
next Tuesday afternoon, at 4:30 o'clock.
Dr- Muck has arranged a program
which is full of the atmosphere 'of the
The Impression will be heightened by
the fact that Elena Gerhardt, the dis
tinguished 3erman soprano, who is to
be tbe soloist, has chosen as her first
number two old Italian arias, one by
MaxdPlln and the other hv filuck. Miss
Gerhardt, who Is making her first ap-
i pearance in Washington at this concert.
Is- a comparative stranger in America,
for Jast season was the first time she
visited this country. Her 'concerts then,
however, were sufficient to impress
the musical public with the fact that
jGeiHiany hatfl sent another .valuable
contribution to our -musical Tlife. Her
first number will be two .Italian arias,
yi 3ilo Bel Juoco," by ilarcello. and
"O Del MIo Dolce Ardor," by Gluck.
Her second number will be three mod
ern -songs by Richard Strauss, the ac
companiments to which he himself or
chestrated. These are "Morgen,"
"Wlegenlled" and "Caecilie."
In the Bach Suite by the orchestra the
solo flute will be played by Andre
ilaquarre, the eminent flutist of tbe
orchestra. Nothing that Dr. Muck has
done this time in his previous stay in
America has won him more praise and
created more enthusiasm than his per
formance of this wonderfully beautiful
old suite and Mozart's Symphony.
Great interest is aroused by the forth
coming joint appearance January 10 at
the Columbia Theater of Alice Nielsen,
soprano, and Gabriel Ysaye, violinist,
Bon of .the famous Eugene Ysaye. Alice
Nielsen, once leading light opera singer
ot the land, but now one of the princi
pals sopranos of the New York Metro
politan Opera Company, declares she
neverwould have, reached her desired
goal save for her-judgment. The extent
of this young woman's success may be

praises of "The Quaker Girl" been
heralded that it Is practically unneces
