S. W. WILCOX 12-13 21 ESTABLISHED 1904. VOL. 18. ND. 20. L1HUE, KAUAI. TERRITORY OF HAWAII, TUESDAY. MAY 16, 1922 SUBSCRIPTION RATES, $2.50 PER YEAR 5 CENTS PER COPY Schwarz Concert A Rare Treat Not only Llhue residents, but many from all over the island, filled tho Tip Top theater last Friday ov enlng, eagerly anticipating the rare plcnsure before them. For t the fame of Josef Schwarz, as an artist of distinction had penetrated even to this end of tho world where good music Is a rare traat. Tho conven tional tfcene of the theator was cov ered with a profusion of yellow an! gold hemorachalls, tho bright day lily which was introduced to the Islands several Hans Isenberg, years ago by Mrs. Dellcnto blue aga- panthus waB intorspersed among the great clusters of gold. It was to Mrs. .!,, iri M thn vnrv Isonborg that Kauai owes the very unexpected privilege of hearing so great an artist, for as her guest Mr. Schwarz had consented to give a concert, tho proceeds of which should be at her disposal. Truly it was a princely gut uom 01 oeauiy and usefulness. The prowded house brought in proceeds to the amount of ?700 which, is to be shared by the Hul Aloha and the Young women's is w hiuuuuuu ui uuuaiisi m u Christian Association of Kauai. With nection with tho construction of the one hair the Hawaiian laaies 01 tho Hul Aloha plan to renovate tho Ilttlo Hawaiian church at Nawiliwin with tho othei; tho Girl Reserves of tho Y. W. C. A. will equip their summor camp, a dream at last come truo. The graclousnoss of the don ors will long bo remembered by many grateful beneficiaries. Yet even moro poignantly, per haps, will tho large audience of Friday night recall tho magnificent volco which poured out, unstmtou, in wave upon wave 01 buuuu. wim tho vory ablo and Bympatnetic as- slstance of Alexander Smalleus at mo piunu, wr. ouuwurz ubbuii, nig out. nis audience a iiuiu ui mai with tho dignified and sonorous "Arioso" of Handel. In tho Verdi aria which followed, tho artist show ed great rango and depth of foeling which appealed to tho audience. But It remained for 'the first selection in English, "Dream In the Twilight" by Richard Strauss, to bring audi enco and artist into close sympathy. To tho great delight of the listen ers, this selection was repeated. This whole group of four songs, two by Strauss and two by Schubert, I has mot with spontaneous entnusi- asm among the Honolulu reviewers and truo it Is that they were sung with exceptional feeling and sym pathy. Offenbach's "Mirror Song" technical and brilliant, was likewise rniipileroil. ln ItH beautiful hnml tnncH I njlctlfMllnrlv. with rrtmnlntn o-iflo mill command. Ono should then havo been nre- . nnrml fnr thn lu iiilnnoo ami nnwnr of tho urusual group of Russian songs which rlnsoil thn nrnirrnni. nut It seemed as If the human volco could command no further resources. Yet In a IliiHslnn ntmnmihnrn tho emit volume of Bound and foeling seemed cnmnlntalv nt homo. Tho Hnnnnil. "Over tho Stnnnn" hv flrntrhnnl. noif. soomed ucrfectlv suited to tho slntrnr's resonance anil nnwor. The final selection. "The Flea." bv' Mous- sorgskl, was essentially dramatic and afforded tho artist an unoxecel led opportunity to display his un usual ability as an actor rollicking at first with a gay laugh, then grad ually growing more and more sin Ister nnd bitter, until tho final laugh becamo a sncor. It was truly a gorgeous program. Its crowning glory, however, re mains yet to bo mentioned. For somo timo tho artist merely felt about the soul of his audience doubting n Ilttlo perhaps, whether It worn a soul tn which ho pnnhl speak. Gradually, tho appreciation oi his listeners became unmistako able, until a vory storm of applause greoiou mo ond ot tho program. Nor would it bo stilled before tho accompanist announced the first en core, the prologue from Pagliaccj. Kvcry wish was fulfilled ln Its beau tlful Interpretation, artistic In its roprossed emotion, yet so gloriously swelling forth at tho end, exhibiting astounding flexibility of volco and tone. Hugo applauso greeted this selection wnicn perhaps during the wnoio wonueriui evening was tho favorite. Nothing daunted, tho ap- plauso contlnuod. And when Mrs. Schwarz, tho artist's wife, was seen to beckon to hor husband to return lor a second oncoro, dolight knew no bounds. Tho audionco wa3 captured, fatatoly, tall, with. Iron gray hair, mobile, expressive featuros, and of majestic stago presence, tho beloved artist, captivated In turn by ,uio spontaniety ot his listenors, ap- peared yet again. Each scorned to play up to tho other with increasing delight. And the Joy was unfeigned. ' when, with lavish hand, tho singer j iiung out nrsi ono operntlc seloction and then another, Pagllacci, La Fa- vorita, Hamlet. These princely gifts Boomed too good to bo truo. Flow- ers had boon rfhowored upon tho singer uy girl ushers, a huge lol of roses from tho Hul Aloha, and nn- other loi and flowors hurried down tho long alslo by young Qiii Resorv- es who had charge of tho ushering. And so at last thero was mutual understanding and appreciation, A great artist had sung himself into tho lionrts of his hearers, oven as Rachmaninoff had written for him: "I am no prophet I spoak to hearts with songs, and wako tho spark of God in them."
