Dohnanyi, Pianist,
Gives His Farewell
Concert for Season
Player of the Fir*t Rank and
Authoritative Interpreter
of Masterpieces.
Krno Dohnanyi, composer and pianist, .
: gave his last recital of the season in
Aeolian H%11 yesterday afternoon. The
audience was of moderate size. Mr.
Dohnanyi Is not a "wizard of the key
board," but a groat artist, who con
strues the duty of a pianist to be in
terpretation of the composer and not
display of his own digital dexterity. Sen
sationalism lias risen, however, to such
a level in this ton n that no sane in
terpretation of music or dignity on the
platform commands much attention.
The conditions surrounding musical
performances at this waning of a sea
son are little short of deplorable It
might not be going too far to say that
too many people seem to be hysterically
seeking for new forms of stimulant to
take the place of those lately lost. The
: tate is dangerous to art and to artists.
The factitious excitements of recent days
cannot be continued, and when they are
no longer to be found In the concert hall
people are going to look for them else
Meanwhile let it be reiterated that
; Mr. Dohnanyi is a pianist of the first
rank, a musician of fine intelligence
i and poetic imagination and aA authori
j tative interpreter of masterpiece'. Ilia
programme contained three, to wit, ;
Beethoven's "Sonata Appassionato.' and ;
his A flat sonata, opus HO, and ??ohu- I
1 nrann's "Etudes Symphonlquei*." The I
pianist was not at his best in the first !
of those, in which he seemed to be flus- j
tered for some reason and therefore
j played too many false notes and became
at times confused In his rhythm.
In the "Appassionata" he was better,
though at no time was his tone all that
should be expected from a player of his
rank. His reading of the Schumann
! number was sympathetic, broad in style,
; captivating in many of its details and
generally that of a master pianist,
though again the tone was wanting in
1 some of the more subtle shades of color
which this player used to have at his
fingers' ends. The programme was com
pleted with a group of Mr. Dohnanyl's
own shorter piano pieces.
| Crimi Sings Title Role in
Place of Gigli.
"Andrea Chenier." Giordano's opera I
Introduced this season Into the repertory
of the Metropolitan Opera House, had
its first matinee performance yesterday
afternoon. Bronchitis continued to inter
fere with the best laid plans of Maestro
Gatti-Casazza. Benlamino Gigll, the
tenor, who has become a favorite with
operagoers in his first engagement here,
was still unable to appear, and his place
j in the title role was taken by Mr. Crimi,
j who had sung the part often in Italy.
Mr. Crimi himself Is not a person of
I robust health and ever since he became
j a member of the Metropolitan company
j he has battled against threatening dis
? abilities. But despite the fact that he
! seemed physically somewhat weak he
I san-g his music creditably yesterday
afternoon. Mr. Danise repeated his un
commonly good impersonation of Gerard.
In this part this new barytone has
shown excellent qualities both as singer
and as actor, and In the third) act yes
terday afternoon he reached the summit
of the afternoon's vocal art.
Miss Muzio Is happier as Madeleine
than she is in some of her other charac
ters. She sang well yesterday and made
! the usual impression in the passionate |
: duo of the last scene. The other per- J
i sonages of th ? op?ra were presented as j
I before and the performance as a whole
I was worthy of commendation. In thi |
| evening "Faust" was given at popular j
> prices with Mme. Sundelius as Mar- j
I gverite.
Frit*. Kreisler. who lias appeared in
many concerts here this season, rave
his fourth violin recital yesterday In
Carnegie Hall before an audience which
filled all the available space. Including
many seats placed on the plstform. With
Carl LAmsoti at the piano Mr. Kreisler

j an<! continued with the. sarabande.
double and couranto from Bach's b
minor sonata for violin alone, which was
followed by Tartini's "Devil's Trill." In
the list were some pieces, including his
own "Tambourin Chlnola." He was In
hln best form and played with en
thralling beauty of tone and style. Espe
cially poetic wan his delivery of the
adagio in the Hrahms sonata.
Oershon Sirota, Hebrew cantor from
i the chief synagogue of Warsaw, who,
; following his recent return to this coun
try after an absence of some yearn, was
heard in a concert with his daughter,
Helenn. at the Metropolitan Opera
House, gave a second concert last night
at Carnegie Hall. As at his tlrst concert,
he was assisted in certain numbers by
a choir of boys and men, led by M.
Mach^rfberg. in a programme including
rolo music by Hebrew writers for tenor
or soprano, or numbers for tenor ami
choir. Tils fine voice and Impressive

sized audience.
