THBX COMES THK REAL SHOW
About this time the real show at the
Orpheum begins. (I exclude from this
Amelia. Bingham, of course, and perhaps
another.) A screen is dropped, and the
house "goes dark." The banjoists sit
near the wings and begin to play. They
abandon the upper reaches of their in- !
struments and play where the string's :
vibrate in wider arcs. And what they
play is the music of 50 years ago, while
the words of the song are flashed on
the sheet. The young man, Dane
Claudius, has said that an opportunity
to compare the ancient and the modern
song's will be enjoyed. But it is mar
velous how many in the audience know
the ancient melodies.
It was like a camp meeting. Soon
everybody was singing, and when the
duetists began "Grandfather's Clock"
you scarcely could hear the music on
the stage for the singing in the audi
ence. "Old Dog Tray," which, I'll ad
mit, is an awful piece of work, was
next to :r When You and I "Were Young , ,
Maggie," and the crowd sang both.
SOME MORE MELODIES
"Darling Clementina" and "Can She
Make a Cherry Pic, Billy Boy" hob
nobhed with "Dan Tucker," while "Lily
Dale" and "Oh, Susanna" preluded
"When Johnny Comes Marching Home."
It may seem strange that people will
pay money to go to a show in order to
help make it a success, but that is what
you'll probably do this week when !
Claudius and lonian Scarlet, with their
despised banjoes, come out and make
you forget ragtime in the sentimental
melodies that our fathers used to sing,

not forgotten. There is much difference,
indeed, between this dear music and

Howard, the ventriloquist, comes
with his old act, refurbished, improved
and made over. The only fault I have
to find with it is that his scene with
his manikin in the dentist chair is
much too realistic for one who hates to
think of similar events in similar
places. It. is, you see, a clever bit of
ventriloquism, ingeniously staged.
LYRIC VOICE WITH RANGE
Madame Maria Galvany has a small
lyrical voice of extraordinary range.
She sang a waltz song and "Carnival
of Vf nice" with all its variations. She
veemed to fee laboring under the dis
tress of a cold, which may have had
the effect of interfering with the dis
play of temperamental warmth and all
suggestion of power. I have never
heard anybody climb quicker staccato
stairs than she, and her voice in sweet
and smooth in quality. Her failure to
win an expected encore last night was
due-. I expect, to the fact that ehe sang
without diaphragm and temperament.

Of Bed Quartet
It was a pleasant, almost a family
affair yesterday afternoon, and the
colonial ballroom of the St. Francis
hotel, which name inspires thoughts of
elegance and aristocracy, perfume and
gleaming shoulders, only needed a
hearth to seem like home. The Beel
quartet of eolo players, merging them
selves into ensemble artists, presided
over a "chamber" concert. It was the
first of the quartet's appearances thie
season and it is agreeable to mention
that it will not be the last. It is also
pleasant to record the fact that the at
tendance was large.
Way back in anteconflagration days,
perhaps it was as long ago as 1905,
Kopta gave chamber music concerts, to j
Which nobody went —that is nobody but
Kopta, his players and a few critics. As
Kopta had money—so 'twas said—at
tendance or nonattendance on the part
jof an alleged music loving public did
J not disturb his financial soul, however
'■ his artistic ego may have been Jarred.
REWARD FOR COURAGE
Judging from yesterday's audience I
I should say that musical taste has im
■ proved since then, or perhaps Beel's
j name has bigger drawing power than
j Kopta's. However that may be, the
! audience which braved a threatening
; day was large and was rewarded for
j its courage by a charming program
; charmingly played.
As the first recital of the season, per-
I haps it may not be offensive to point
! out the defects that the quartet will j
rehearse to overcome. This will be
done with the reservation, understood,
that the defects were of minor consid
' f ration to an audience grateful for the
i artistry that was dinplayed.
The lowering Uunciman of London
said not long ago that the composition
of chamber music died with Beethoven,
and was not more than revived by
Schumann, Schubert and Brahms. To
the modern composer the critic advised
the task of making new forms of less

The quality of the viola tone in Beel's

musical scheme of things. It is far

gestions are couched in terms that bear
the highest respect, and are given for
what they are worth—as a tribute to
the excellence of the organization,
which can not be expected to hear its
own playing from a distance. It is pos
sible that the preponderance of first vio
lin tone may have been due In a meas
ure not only to the nature of the com
positions, but to the acoustics of the
room. However, it would seem that a
little readjustment of the chairs might
affect a correction. If the second vio
lin were not to sit immediately back
of the first chair and music rack, per
haps the tone would come forth free.
In that case, only the viola need to
strengthen his tone, which showed so
tremulous and beautiful whenever the
exigencies of the counterpoint permitted
it to be heard,

MARIE SLOSS WINS
FAVOR AT RECITAL
San Francisco Pianist Plays Dif
ficult Works of Famous
Miss Marie Sloss scored a noteworthy
triumph in a recital yesterday after
noon in Scottish Kite ball. The pro
gram was'the first of a series to be pre
sented in the cities about the bay.
Miss Sloss' brilliant technique and
delightful interpretation were especi
ally evident in Schumann's '('arnevaJ."
The kaleidoscopic nature of this com
position, with its qUlckly changing
moods, brought out vividly her artistry
and skill. Her playing in later num
bers of some of Chopin's etude*
strengthened the impres.sion she mad<>
in the opening number. Among the
compositions by Chopin she played Wat
his study l- , . opus 10, tl><-> Revolution
ary- She closed with a toccata by God
owsky and a scherzo by BolUnger.
Miss Sloss returned recently from
Dresden and Berlin. she won
recognition before the critical audi
ences. Not the least important element
in her success is due to her charming
Jn addition to the piano numbers by
Miss Sloss, the program includ"d som*
charming songs by Miss Elizabeth Price,
already favorably known to San Fran
cisco audiences, and some violin num
bers by Sam Kippel, who received en
thusiastic applause for his playing in
Wienawski's mmanza and sjnr
phonie Kspagnole. \
The artists are members of the fac
ulty of the San Francisco Conservatory
of Music, under the direction of which
the concert was given.
