Maud Powell Deserves Seat Among Great Stars
Violinist Won Place By Power And Capability
San' Francisco to Hear
Noted American In
IT is net the gallantry of Krclsler,
Ysaye. Marteau or Koclan that
gives Maud Powell a seat amongst
them as one of the world's greatest
violinists. She is there by the deftnes.-.,
power and lightness of her bow arm.
the suppleness and dexterity of her left
hand fingers ami the vigor allied to
delicacy of herVßguisical temperament.
Wherever violin playing Is compre
hended in its higher aspects Maud
Powell's name is known and her ar
tistry reflects credit on her native land,
too often despised by the musically
richer lands of Europe. One of the
rrettiest tributes over paid Maud Pow
ell, and one of the most accurate, was
that written recently by a London
critic, who summed up her violin play
"She has the arm of a man, the head
of an artist and the heart of a woman."
This American violinist will play a
series of three concerts under Will
Greenbaum's management at Scottish

Brahms-Joachim and Wieniawski will
be played. At her farewell recital Miss
Powell will present Max Bruch's "Con

interpretation of which the artist cre
ated a sensation in New York. By
special request Miss Powell will play
Grieg's quaint sonata in G minor.
Harold Osborn Smith is Miss Powell's
accompanist and assisting pianist in
the ensemble works. He will be re

Tina Lerner Returns
Miss Tina Lerner will return to San
Francisco under the management of
Frank W. Ilealy to play a piano re
cital Tuesday night, December 17, at
Scottish Rite hall. The extraordinary
and immediate success achieved by this
remarkable little Russian artisvt when
she played with the local symphony
orchestra recently is responsible for
the return engagement. In her two
performances with the San Francisco
symphony orchestra she played the
Tschaikowsky concerto, that being the
only number- with orchestra that had
been rehearsed by the musicians under
Henry Hadley. On her return she will

Beel Quarter Again
Musicians can hardly afford to miss
the excellencies of the Beei quartet,
whose chamber music recitals are gems
of pure delight. The third concert of
the season will be given at the St.
Francis hotel in the colonial ballroom
Tuesday night. December 10. A change
has been made in the program from
originally announced, a beautiful
quartet by Mendelssohn being substi
tuted for tlie Mozart composition. The
andante and variations from Schubert's
quartet in D minor, in which the theme
employed in his song, "Death and the
Maiden," is delevoped, and Schumann's
quintet for strings and piano will be
the other offerings of the evening.
Mrs. Oscar Mansfeldt. whose pianistry
Is well known and greatly admired, will
interpret the piano score of the Schu
mann work. The final concert by the
Heel quartet in its Berkeley season will
be played Thursday night, December 12,
in the rooms of the Berkeley Piano club.
Fine Chora! Singing
Most attractive Is the program ar
ranged by the Loring club for the .sec
ond concert of Its thirty-sixth season.
The date is Tuesday evening and the
place is the Scottish Kite auditorium.
One of the compositions on the pro
pram to have its lirst presentation in
l>nn Francisco is George W. Chadwiek's
"•"redo." This is a setting of Thaekery's
humdrous line?. Other works which it
is believed will be entirely new -to a
local audience will he Arthur Sullivan's
Evening," Hat ton's "He That Hath a
Cheerful Face" and an arrangement of
the folk song, "The Littles Sandman."
The largest and most important work,
to be presented is Schubert's "The Song
of the Spirits Over the Waters," this
being for chorus of men's voices in
eight parts with the unusual accom
paniment'of violas, violoncellos, bass,
piano and orsan. Jhe uiuJb will produce
this work as scored by the composer.

Gtffen's Singers Appear—San Fran
cisco had an opportunity to hear some
of the more advanced pupils in the art
of singing of Frank Carroll Giffen last
Thursday night at Native Sons' hall.
The affair was a great success, the
pupils reflecting great credit on the
methods of their instructor. Miss
Frances Chamberlain's interpretation
of the aria, "La Cieca" from "La Gia
conda," and the "Habanero" from "Car
men" indicated a deep musical tem
perament and excellent schooling. Miss
Stella Coughlin sang an aria from "La
Sonambula" and the "Jewel song"
from "Faust," with exquisite taste and
brilliant technic. Her tones which
range easily above high C are clear
and pure. Miss Josephine Heinrlehs
exhibited much dramatic fervor and
feeling in her selections from German
music and Glen Chamberlain, a. tenor
of unusual promise and great present
attainments exhibited a variety of
gifts in his appropriate interpretation
of Pergolcsi's mournful "Nina" and
Verdi's gay "La Donna c Mobile." Miss
Florence Kripp, still but a girl, gives
evidence of a bright future in music.
She sang with sweet beauty Schubert's
"Who is Sylvia?"

NEWS OF ART
SAX FRANCISCO has at last been
pictured- by a great artist. Trial
proofs of the 10 -etchings of this
;ity made by Joseph Pennell have
arrived and are to be seen at' i
550 Sutter street. They represent the <
work of the greatest American etcher '
since Whistler, with whom, as every !
one knows, Pennell was closely asso- 1
ciated and whose official biographer he •
is - , i '
After leaving the United States in <
1884, Pennell became like Whistler j i
more identified with England than with =
America, The highest honors have
been showered upon him In many coun
tries. Among these are grand prizes
and gold medals from the following
cities and expositions: Paris, 1900;
Dresden, 1902; St. Louis, 1904; Liege,
1905; Milan, 1906; Barcelona, 1907; ,
Brussels, 1910. He has also received
medals from Philadelphia, Chicago and
Buffalo. He Is represented In the Lux
emburg, the collection of the city of
Paris and the cabinet dcs estamps; the
Uflizi gallery, Florence; Modern gal
lery, Venice; Modern gallery. Rome;
collection of the king of Italy,

* « *
THE most interesting thing about ;
Pennell's San Francisco etchings ,
—aside from their individuality
of manner and the great art sense be- j
hind them —is the charming way in
which they romanticize the city. A
chorus of poets have suhg of San Fran
cisco, descriptions in prose range from
that by Bruce Porter, which appeared
in "Phyllida. or the Milkmaid" down ,
to the literature of the Chamber of
Commerce. Exception should be made
of Bruce Porter's description, because
being an artist himself he has done
with his pen what Pennell has done
with his needle; that is, he has made
San Francisco beautiful with the
beauty of a personal art. Other "de
scribers" have been more photographic
—more literal. Some of them—notably
Gelett Burgess and Will Irwin—have
visualized it wonderfully. They give
us San Francisco as It was, the Cham
ber of Commerce literature gives us
San Francisco as it' is, while Joseph
Pennell gives us San Francisco as It .
ought to be.
* '*, ' * !
SAN FRANCISCANS are notoriously
proud of their city as it actually
is; what would they be if tt were
as Pennell pictures it? True, he has
made the hills twice as steep, and
the buildings twice as high, and one ,
is taken back in memory to the ex
quisitely falsified pinnacles of La Puy
en Valey that Pennell drew for the
first number of the Yellow Book almost
twenty years ago. But the results are
beautiful. They will do more for San
Francisco than all the literature that
can be printed. They are exquisite lies
that many will believe, saying as they
look at them, "Why, San Francisco is
really beautiful, after all! I always
thought its attractions were exag*
One of the etchings is called "The
CampanUl." and shows the Spreckels
