IN ARTISTIC RECITAL
Distinguished Russian Performer
Delights Large Audience
At Poli'e Theater.
Someone has said of Rachmaninoff?
that gaunt Impenetrable figure at the
piano?that his playing has so much
of delicate lightness in it and yet
so much of profoundness. At his
piano recital yesterday afternoon Hie
great Russian chose a program quue

upon which the waits of three na

Programs M. Rachmaninoff has given
that tear one's spirit with the depth
of their tragedy and tenseness. And
even over his lighter moods there
hovers a mantle of melancholy, of
seriousness that holds one in evor
eager expectancy as to what he will
reveal anew of his own fertile fancy
in the music he interprets.

For Serge Rachmaninoff is not an

His Beethoven was wayward. But
the rugged master himself surely did
not establish the suavity?the echool
girl spirit with which we ere wont
to think of a Beethoven sonata.
This was the Opus 31.
There is a marked repose always
with Rachmaninoff?It is felt in his
most florid passages. The Mendelss
sohn "Rond?n Capriccioso" was tsken

his romance melody was a masterly
gift of beauty, of sentiment, and of

A Pierrot fete scene was his tem

and he gave for encores the Mendels
sohn "Spinning Song," "La Fileuse,"
the Chopin I) flat waltz, and his own
great "Prelude" in C sharp minor.

by the "Lohengrin" prelude, with its
mysteries, symbolism and soul search
