THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN, SUNDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 8, 1912.
PAGE THIRTEEN Club Rotes Despite the inclement weather there was a large attendance at the Musi cians club Monday afternoon when a well arranged program was given under the direction of Mrs. H. C. Locket t, in appreciation of Mrs. Henry D. Ross, a member of the club has written a special article for the Republican: "The composers selected for the af ternoon were Handel and Schumann, a felicitous combination for beauty and strength. All Handel's piano music was written for the harpso chord, and much of it was in the form of Suites or lessons as they were called in England. They are pedagogic and thematic in content, patterned for the most part after the style of Bach, with whom he does not compare as a composer of instrumental music. His fame rests on his incomparable work in the Ora toria forms. To mike his piano works interesting demands daintiness . and grace of touch, and much art- j istic skill. It is pleasant to relate, that all these requirements were met in the performer of the instrumental numbers from Handel's works last) Monday afternoon. Handel hart tne knack of writing well and gratefully for the voice, which many critics at tribute to his Italian training. His melodies are always flowing and graceful, and abound in simple ex pressiveness. Schumann has well been called the great Romanticist of the musical world, but tile term must be inter preted very broadly, for he is no sentimentalist. His works are noble and lofty, abounding in great intrica cies of harmonic transitions, and much catchy syncopation. They re quire of the p'-rformcr physical strensth, a finished technique and breadth of vision. They are never the work for the amateur, and we are proud to record that the player of Monday afternoon rose above that class in her performance of the exacting Whims." The beauty, power and appealing quality of Schu mann's songs must be always attri buted to the long and trying court ship he was forced to undergo, for the best of them were written during that stormy period in his life, in spired by his passionate love for Clara Wieck. They are the highest form of the pure German Lieder and require deep and long study for sat isfactory present ment." The Program: Life of Handel Mrs. H. C.
