MB. RANDOLPH'S RECITAL. Baltimore Pianist lliilertnliia Hear era With Kieelletil I'rogrninnie. Harold Kandolph, the principal of the I'eahody Conservatot y In Italtlmore, gave a piano tecital yesterday afternoon In Aeolian Hall. Mr, Hnndnlph Is not un known to music lovers In this clt antl he deserved a larger audience than that which assembled to hear lilm yesterday. Hut the deluge is upon us antl pianists obscure tho sun The concert activities of the present season are lo be more numerouo than the town has ever before) Known ami no one snouni ne nsiomsneti If some worthy enterprises are neglected Mr. Itnndolph's programme comprised some standard compositions and some emanating from the faculty of his insti tution. These may become standard works In their time, but this Is not yet. The tlrst number was Mr. Husonl's trans crlptlon of Hach's toccata, adagio and fugue In C major In this composition the pianist showed a tine and well bal anced sense of tonal values, nicety of finger work and clear, well defined rhythm, It was a scholarly piece of piano playing antl not the least Interesting of Its merits was Its respect for the capabilities of the Instrument. Scarlatti's famlllnr allegto In D major, the Hrahms arrangement of the gavotte from (.Duck's liallet "Don Juan" and Hrahms's H tlat minor Intermezzo and H tlat minor caprice formed the next group. The Intermezzo, which Is seldom heard, ought lo b" played oftener. Schu mann's "Ktudex Symplionittnes" formed the central number of the programme and In this Mr. Randolph's technic, style and tine appreciation were dltpla.ved lo advantage. Ho.vle's berceuse and serenade, Hutche son's Scherzo In F shaip minor, Wad's mlnuettino, a study by I.lszt, anil the Schubert military march In the T.iuelg version hiought the tecital to a close WEDDINGS.
