Singer and Violinist Give
Markedly Artistic Pro
' . gram at Columbia.
Old admirers of Alice Nielsen and new
admirers of Gabriel Ysaye met In the
Columbia Theater yesterday afternoon
filling the house ana providing an ap
preciative audience for a beautiful con
cert. Hiss Nielsen. like Sarah Bern-
hardt, has Time on the run and Kronas
.abashed, for she Is as youthful and
charming as when some years ago she
sang "I Dreamt I Dwelt ln Marble
Halls." Ab a matter of fact. Miss
Nielsen is "not extremely old yet. She
sings with much better method than
Gabriel Ysaya Is a -worthy son of his
Uluetrlous father. The younger violin
ist, who made his American debut here
yesterday, was accompanied by Camille
Decreus, the same pianist who played
for Eugene Ysaye at the Columbia con
cert on December 11 M. Decreus Is re
membered for his playing then rof an
Instrumental group which included the
Rachmaninoff "Prelude'' and a lovely
"Reverie Nocturne" of his own. He ac
companies with good taste and skill and
contributed markedly to the success of
Sonata In D Minor.
The concert began with "a Beethoven
Sonata In D minor for violin and
piano. In the andante Mr. Ysaye played
with great tenderness, and in the presto
M. Decreus had many requirements to
Miss Nielsen then gave an English
group of songs by Cadman, Spross, and
Strauss. One may say that Miss Nell-
seu, as in recent appearances here,
showed good art, and a pleasing voice,
a'belt her upper tones are a little shrill
end her middle register Is the best.
It was in the group of two numbers.
"Reve d' Enfant," by E. Ysaye. and
"Havanaise," by Salnt-Saens, that Ga
briel Ysaye scored his greatest success.
The first 'composition, though modern
and strange, had great charm, and its
delicate beauty at the close seemed to
melt Into silence. The "Havanaise" was
a curious Spanish or Cuban movement.
In another contrasting pair,M. Ysaye
offered a Berceuse by Faure and Rus
sian airs by Wlenlawskl. In the latter
a soulful tune received such treatment
as the Paganlni tradition accords. An
encore was demanded and granted.
Singer Wins Audience.
Miss Xellsen gave four French songs
azrecably. and after an intermission
passed on to Brahms, Liszt, and Grieg.
A. Debussy- "Mandoline" was odd and
delicate and Liszt's "Lorelei" was love
ly. The "Botschaff 'or Brahms' -was
beautiful and the Grieg numbers were
made very Intelligible by the singer. The
French songs possessed charm and the
German and Scandinavian songs had a
depth of feeling that made them com
pelling. Miss Nellsen brought spirit to
her French songs and sympathy to the
German. .She closed the .concert with

One thing Mr. Wilson )s Insisting on
