BenmTRabinof, Violinst, Will Play
Return Engagement Next Month
Benno Rabinof, great American
violinist who made such a success
ful appearance last season in Wil
mington, is being brought back un
der the sponsorship of the New
Hanover High school orchestra,
Wednesday, October 18. Rabinof
will be accompanied by Sylvia
Smith, attractive young pianist,
who will also play a group of
solos. This senstaional violinist is
playing a return engagement at
every city in which he appeared
last year. The sponsors for one
engagement in Illinois, in Novem
ber, have informed his manager
that the house has completely sold
out at this early date. Th-e enthusi
asm which his artistry and amaz
ing technic called forth from his
Wilmington audience last season
guarantees a packed house here,
also.
Mrs. Norden, director of the New
Hanover High School orchestra, an
nounces that arrangements have
been made for Rabinof and Sylvia
Smith to follow the evening con
cert with two school matinees the
next day, one for the high school
students and the other for the
grades. This is being done because
several bus loads of students from
the grade schools were not able to
attend last year due to lack of
seating capacity.
Rabinof will play an entirely dif
ferent program this season. Of
chief interest is the fact that he is
including the entire Paganini con
certo, which is one of the most
brilliant and technically difficult
concertos in violin literature. It is
customary for violinists to play
only the first movement of this
virtuoso work. Rabinof is one of
three artists who play the Paganini
from the original edition, in its
entirety, the other two being Me
nuhin and Francescatti.
At the request of the artist, it is
hoped that the New Hanover High
school orchestra will be able to ac
company Rabinof in the concerto.
As is customary with the earlier
virtuoso works, the accompaniment
is written as a background for the
soloist, only, and does not present
much difficulty. Mrs. Norden is in
viting all former members of the
high school orchestra to participate
with the present membership in
this unusual and thrilling opportu
nity.
The remainder of the concert
will be given by the two artists
only.
Tickets for the evening concert,
October 18, will be on sale this
week at Gurr’s and Kingoff’s
Jewelry stores, and will be placed
also at the Coast Line offices.
