THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS. FRIDAY, MARCH J5, 1912.
CLARK TO APPEAR IN RECITAL.
C. W. CLARK, WHO APPEARS IN
long recital at Augustana college
March 27, is a baritone of national rep- I
utatlon. The eminent critic. Carry!
B. Storrs of the Minneapolis Evening
Tribune, writes of his art as follows:
"Mr. Clark is one of the world's
greatest interprfter of 'lieder, a Ger
man word meaning a song in which
the words and music are so closely re
lated that in combination they form a
single artistic whole. The vast ma
jority of lieder singers over-emphasize
the musical aspect of their songs. Dr.
Ludwig Wullner is one of the few who
over-emphasize their dramatic ' side.
Charles W. Clark is one of the still
rarer variety of artists who strikes a
perfect artistic balance between the
two and whose recitals, therefore, are
rrodels of their kind which should not
be missed by anyone Interested In this
genii dirlelon of the great and noble
art of music. Space will not permit
Individual analysis of the Impeccable
artintry which made each number a
separate gem of conception and Inter
pretation. It must suffice to say that
the entire program waa a revelation
of what may be done by a great artist
to lift the apparently little Into the
realm of the really big. Mr. Clark's
work found adequate support in the
beautifully played piano accompani
ments by Gordon Campbell"
