SHOW-^^SAUCE Forgotten Chopin Compositions Played on Death Anniversary By Alice Eversmdn j Chopin's death centennial was i commemorated last night in the ; Phillips Gallery with a concert of unusual interest. Being the only program given here on the exact anniversary of his death, it contained the rarely heard works the composer wrote for strings and piano, all of which are now out of print. It con sisted of the “Trio, op. 8” for piano, violin and cello, the “So nata, op. 65” for cello and the "Introduction and Polonaise, op. 3” for violin and piano. Because the Centennial Edition of Cho pin’s works was made by the late Paderewski on commission by the Polish government, his “Sonata, op. 13” for violin and piano was included in the program. The artists who sought to make known last night these forgotten compositions, none of which had been previously performed here, were Elena de Sayn, violinist; Ed win Davis, pianist, and Maurice Schones, cellist That Chopin was more at home in writing for the piano is evidenced already in these early works which place special emphasis on scintillating playing. Mr. Davis, the happy possessor of a superb technique, brilliantly styled for the charm and sparkle of the piano part of the “Trio” and the “Polonaise,” was a splendid partner who gave the required dazzle to the per formance. The “Trio” has grace, smooth ness of line and occasionally blos soms forth with a warmth of mel ody. presaging the composer’s later powers. It is bound with conventions, however, and seldom expands with the spontaneity of his older style. The 18-year-old composer's vitality keeps it pleas antly alive and at times attains real beauty, as in the slow move ment. The three artists played it with feeling and with nuances in ensemble that underscored its principal points. The “Introduction and Polo naise” has been called “La Gaite,” for it is bubbling with light-heart edness in the “Polonaise” offset by a poetic "Introduction” which the composer added later. It served as an excellent medium for both the expressive tone Miss de Sayn can draw from the violin, her flngej; fluency and interpre tive Are. These qualities were again demonstrated in the Pade rewski “Sonata.” a work which, although rather superficial as to depth, is more appreciative of the violin’s possibilities. Mr. Davis and Miss de Sayn extracted all its virtues in their reading, with par ticular felicity in the charmingly imaginative second movement. Chopins's lack of understanding or of interest in string instruments was shown in his paucity of in vention in both the “Trio” and the “Introduction and Polonaise.” In his cello "Sonata,” however, he wrote with grqpter freedom and intention. His last major work, it has the substance and the fin ish that experience had given him. Again the demands on the piano are uppermost, yet the cello comes to the fore with more pronounced vigor. Mr. Schones gave a superb performance, beautifully modu lated so as to enhance its delicate effects and its more intense mo ments. The soulful “Largo” was played with vibrant feeling and the encompassing movements with technical brilliancy. Mr. Davis’ sympathetic co-operation in in terpretation and his splendid ne gotiation of the elaborate piano part contributed to make the “Sonata” one of the notable suc cesses of the evening. Close to 600 people came to hear this history-making concert and applauded the artists with en thusiasm after each number. The mystery of Doda Conrad’s New Shipment! j I Sell-out | | Value!
