MADAME SEMBRICH AND THE SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA A famous soprano and an orchestra that may easily become famous were conjoined last night at the International auditorium in the first concert of the Minneapolis Symphony orchestra. Mme. Sembrfch re vealed her art and personality far more convincingly than she did last year, and the half-hundred instrumentalists, united by Conductor Emil Oberhoffer under the auspices of the Philharmonic club, sur prised even their -wellwishers with proof of individual power and felicitous co operation. Society was prominent, of course, in the very large audience. When the Polish soprano sang Tiere a year ago she disappointed a multitude. She sang everything, almost, except those operatic fioridities in which she specially excels. Last night, however, she made prominent her witchcraft over run and trill without neglecting the contrasting al lurement of ballad legato, so deceitfully eimple. She sang apparently in perfect health, except that a few bars of muf fled, wellnight nasal tone suggested, at first, the "slight indispositions" hovering always above prime donne. But she quickly regained the frank, clear utter ance for which she may thank the Italian method that lias so well . preserved her powers. Her first number, the "Traviata" aria, "Ah, Fors' E Lui," dissipated any suspicion that she might be losing her skill of colorature. And. if twenty years ago, upon her arrival in America, she was declared technically the equal of Melba, the Australian lark could not have flitted vocally with more solid yet resilient placing" than did Mme. Marcella last Bight, as if traversing strong, invisible* ladders of melody. The final high trill evoked a drum roll of applause, before which Mme. Stengal bowed and bowed again, accepted a notable tribute of flow ers, spontaneously congratulated, with a handshake. Conductor Oberhoffer for his Diamonds!

For the Schumann "Nussbaum" song the prima donna did not obtain the re ward she secured last year, when this love ditty proved most acceptable of her numbers. In the old-time "Lass with the Delicate Air." superior singing did not conceal the fact that many foreigners' mastery of "all the languages'* includes English by courtesy only. More satisfac tory was the "Serenade" by Richard Strauss. The concordant piano accom paniment in the hands of Mr. Oberhoffer illustrated how willingly a good musician chooses the eminence of self-suppression. It was in her last number, a waltz aria the "Voices of Spring," by Johann Strauss, that Madame Sembrich not only added a few of the welcome flourishes, but mani fested, in fresh, delicate gaiety, the co quettish spirit that marks her as essen tially a prima soubrette, tho a grand sou brette indeed. The new Symphony orchestra is both unfortunate and fortunate in its strings. Numbering but little more than half the orchestra, they might profitably be in creased by fifteen players at least. Some times, in tutti passages, especially in the "William Tell' overture, all the care of Conductor Oberhoffer could not prevent an overwhelming of the strings, altho he had reinforced them by bringing the double basses forward close to the first violin. For the brasses, with their four French horns, bass tuba and three trom bones, and the woodwinds, including an English horn and a bass clarinet, had much superfluous strength to restrain. On the other hand, the violins, under such a concertmeister as Frank t)anz, Jr., who has fine stability, are a proud array of high grade soloists, who were able by sheer ability to supplement the director's cau tion and to maintain the influence of their class. In the brass and wood an occasional ner vous hesitancy interrupted- unity. Here some tones were not always smooth. But defects were lost in the artistic repression, the tasteful thoroness, which emanating from the self-possessed conductor, gave the orchestra an individuality auguring a splendid future. In the qualities named, in precision, and in dynamic variety-and consistency, the new organization bids fair to reach high symphonic ideals. An increase of mem bers is but a" matter of time. There are already several instruments with which few except the largest orchestras ate fa voreda viola d'amour, for example, an English horn, and a harpthe last played by the only woman member, Miss Loretta Dellone. The "Meistersinger" prelud,e by the or chestra did not "appeal," as pastors put it. Neither did the technical difficulties, the transcendental melancholy of Liszt's symphonic poem, "The Preludes." Yet everyone was charmed with the simpler beauties of the Schubert symphony in B minor, thanks-somewhat to its familiar harmonies. Mr. Oberhoffer lifted his eye brows like a true musician before grant ing a repetition of the little serenade by Moszkowski. Spanish melodies of Aragon in "Cid" ballet suite were as successful as if they had not been oddly described in. the program as "characteristically French music." And the "William Tell" overture, with its masterful 'cello solo by Carlo Fisher, completed a most favorable im pression. President Frederick Fayram of the Phil harmonic club explained the drafts and echoes by pointing out that the auditorium has been only half remodelled as yet into an ample, attractive concert hall and that the work is being pushed as rapidly as possible to the end that Minneapolis will have a large, finely appointed music hall. H. B. Curry. SUZANNE ADAMS T0-M0RE0W Will Appear In Teachers' Club Course with Her Concert Company. Suzanne Adams is the only pupil of Mme. Marehesi who is publicly reported to have rebelled against her methods and to have repudiated her instruction. After enduring Mme. Marchegi's methods as long as she thought any self-respecting American could for the sake of her art, she led a revolt against a system that gave the pupil nothing for his time and money except the reputation of being a Marehesi pupil. As a Bouhy pupil, she secured a fqur years' contract at'the Grand opera house in Paris, altho, lacking pull, her notable appearances were due to the fail ures of others. Nevertheless it was a notable recognition of her powers, and she acquired invaluable experience. She is the foremost of the younger sing ers who are expected to succeed Nordica and Eames. She will be heard to-morrow night in the Teachers' "club course with her own company in concert. Jt , B rfi mi MELLIN'S FOOD CO., BOSTON. MASS.
