WEDNESDAY. NOVEMBER 27th
Society of New York
The Philharmonic Society of New York, since its foundation in 1842, has
exerted a far-reaching influence in the development of symphonic music in this
Devoted to the presentation of the master works of classic and modern
composers, the Society has given the first production in .America to many of the
most celebrated compositions. The orchestral works of Liszt were first heard
in America in these concerts, and the immortal Ninth, or Choral Symphony,
of Beethoven, received its first American production by the Philharmonic
A long list ol world-renowned conductors has presided over tht- orchestra,
and its concerts have witnessed the personal triumphs of scores of distinguished
artists and composers from Jenny Lind and Rubinstein to Dvorak and Tschai
Among the honorary members of the organization are found such names
as Spohr, Mendelssohn. Rubinstein. Raff, Liszt and Wagner. In fact, the his
tory of symphonic music in America is to no small extent a record of the Phil?
harmonic Society of New York since its inception in 1842.
MISCH A ELMAN,
Soloist at First Concert, November 27.
Mischa Elman. rtrst of the living violinists, will return to
the United States after a year of new conquests in his own
country, Russia, where he had not played since he was first
introduced to the public by his master, Leopold Auer, nearly
ten vears ago. The celebrated young Russian will inaugurate
his fourth American tour in a series of concerts with the New
York Philharmonic Societv. Josef Stransky, conductor, appear
| ing in New York. Providence, Baltimore, Washington, Rich
| mond and Brooklyn. N. Y.
From the moment when, as a child of five years he first
astonished mature experts by his playing, until the making of
his debut in 1904, there was never any question as to his ulti?
mate goal. The career of Elman has been an uninterrupted
march up the ladder of violinistic greatness. Ambitious to excel
his finest efforts, Elman has continued to labor for artistic
levels apparently beyond human possibility. And it has been
this untiring devotion to self-improvement that has acted as
the prime factor in his steady progress. To-day Elman stands
us a dass which he himself has created. He has no rivals in the eyes, or ears, of the public, and
no other violinist has flashed upon the musical horizon who gives evidence of contesting with
Elmar, for supremacy. He is unique, incomparable and unequalled; a genius who has realized
bow such an endowment may be further enhanced by unremitting work: a player justly entitled
Ss the appellation accorded?'The Emperor of Yiolinists."
Soloist at Second Concert, January 22.
Madame Schumann-Heink is too well and too favorably
known in Richmond to require more than a mere mention
of her name. Americans in general feel a peculiar sense of
ownership in Schumann-Heink. Although born in Lieben,
near Prague, she might almost be called an American artist,
so often ha? she appeared in this country, and so favorably
has she been received. Her u-onderful voice early attracted
the attention of the most noted teachers in Europe, and at
the age of seventeen she entered her first contract in the
opera. It was with the Royal Opera in Dresden, and was
gotten against the bitter opposition of her father, an Aus?
trian military officer of high rank. At the conclusion of her
three-year engagement in Dresden. Schumann-Heink's fame
had spread throughout Germany.
Following her Dresden engagement came a series of brilliant successes, after which she
came to America. Her matchless character and matchless voice are too well known and
appreciated in this country to need further elucidation.
Soloist at Third Concert, March 12.
The eminent pianist was born in Zurich, Switzerland. February
24. 1877. It was as a violinist that Mr. Ganz began his musical
education. As a performer on the latter instrument he made
his first appearance in public in 1887, and?having also taken
up the piano?he made his debut as a performer upon that
instrument at the age of twelve. Ganz then became a pupil
of his uncle, Carl Eschmann-Dumur, leaving this teacher in
1859 to take up his piano studies with Ferrucrio Busoni. In
composition Mr. Ganz was instructed by Heinrich Urban.
In 1901 he came to America as a member of the faculty of
the Chicago Musical College, but he resigned his position in
19()S in order to devote himself to a virtuoso's career. Mr.
Ganz thereupon returned to Berlin. Germany.
As a composer. Rudolph Ganz has, in addition to the Con
certstick for Piano, written a symphony, a sonata for violin
and piano, a number of small pieces for piano, and many songs
As a pianist he has appeared at four concerts of the Theodore
Thomas Orchestra, and each season that he visited America he
has appeared as soloist with the Boston Symphony Orchestra
Mr. Ganz is one of the most eminent pianists of the day, and as an interpreter of Liszt is
unsurpassed. So renowned has the Swiss pianist become that last season he was forced to crowd
into the limited space of three months as many concerts as other artists take seven months to
accomplish. The demand for Ganz was so great last year that he will make a more prolonged
visit to America the coming season in order to fulfill all the engagements that are open to htm.
