Bnccessful Debut of the Allegheny Musi cal Association. GOSSIP ABOUT ODE LOCAL HUS1CIASS. Before nn appreciative andienco of tbe pupils of the Pennsylvania Female College and a very Jew outsiders, gathered on Fri day evening last at tbe institution named, the Boston Quintet Club presented tbe following programme: 1.

JO. Qulntet-Babbllye. jGUlet .- The ensemble numbers were well chosen for Ibis occasion, and met with an exceed- inglv hearty response from the audience. Sveiidsen's Ailepro proved to be a skillfully constructed movement of a orient and sparkling character, with frequent episodes of a delisht ul Norse flavor aud quaint har monic effects. It was fairly well played, but not so smoothly, by any means, as was tlie lovelv. devotional andante cantabile from Tschatko'wsky's quartet, with its hauntinj; mielody fur the violin, so elevated In feeling, and jet so full of tlio plaintive intervals that voire the ever underlyinc; sadness of tbe Muscovite ninslc. In tills, as tbroncb out the preirramme, Mr Rhodes proved himself to lo tbe artist, par excellence, or tbe club. "Traeumerei" was a bit broken ana legless; too much travel imr for peaceful "dreamerv" that nmht, no doubt. Hut the dainty little nwvements from Gillet's suite were gracefully done. In the sons accoinpani nients the ensemlilo was pretty racced: anil elsewhere thenoU and second violin would occasionally be too prominent or tbe 'cello ob trude itself too murh for perfect balance. Still the club made it perfectly apparent that it can do finished and well-balanced playing, and doubtless would have taken more pains Lad the occasion been one of greater eclat. illss Carpenter lud an indubitable told, so seven- as to entitle ber to credit for singing at alL Thus hampered she could not 1 expected to do much with Oounod's brilliantly dramatic cavatina. La,ter on, in the two trlflinc ballads. Miss Carpenter sang with no small amount of spirit and feeling. Mr. Burose's flate solo bad mure of artistic style and musicianly phrasing than one is wont to bear from that instrument. His large technical facility was also amply shown in the piccolo polka given on encore. Mr. Louis Bluinenberg, organizer and propri etor ot tbe club, programmed again tbe same three pieces that be has played over and over in the past years. Does not Mr. Bluinenberg know anything else? The worst or it is that the pieces are almost wholly destitute of real musi cal interest, being mainly fancy display pieces full ol slick tricks and little else. That Mr. Bluroenbetg can do better be showed in bis encore selection, the .charming little Serenade Badine." by Gus tave Marie, Which "was admirably played throughout. For the Wlenlawski fantasie Bach's air for tbe G string was substituted by Sir. Rhodes, who was ill and hardly felt equal to the brilliant -Fanst" transcription. Maybe so; but there was certainly no illness apparent in tbe extraordinarily full and resonant tone or in tbe broad, free style with which the noble Bach air was interpreted. Since encores seemed to be tbe rder of the evening every one regretted that Mr. Rhodes did not respond to the entunsiai'ic and persistent applause that followed this performance. " Here is a vio linist whom Pittsburg will be glad to bear again under more favorable circumstances. Mr. Joseph H. GIttlngs. of course, managed the concert and it deserving of credit for bis liberal poll. in bringing good music, well played, ueioroJiis pupils at the college. -. The Ionsxtefrred debut of . the Allegheny Musical Arsnciation. conducted by Mr. W. A. Latferty. was made last Tuesday evening at the Fourth U. P. Cburcb. In the Bister city. The chorus numbered about 1U0 voices and the orchestra about 49 players, amateur and pro fessional. Following is tbe programme: 1. Lercndorst. Cecilia." Benedict a. WeU'llnir chorus. 6. Aria: -Tlic liove Too Deep for Words" Mr. i. S. Thompson S. HiBotolo-Schcntoln DSWt Chopin U. Uereridee Webster. Z. Sopraho solo "In Breams I Heard the Seraphs1' Fasre ' Mra.Jinu Wallace Wcbsur, 4.

W.IUcfer, soprano; chorus and orchestra. Happily, tbe rumur that Sarasate and D' Albert are going to give a concert in Old City Hall on the 13th of January has proven true. Real music-lovers throughout this sec tion have good cause to rejoice. To bear Eugene d' Albert alone is well worth a good round sum in railroad tare and tickets. We too often hear tbe world's great artists long after they have passed their prime. Heieis probably tbe greatest living pianist of to-day. almost certainly tue greatest pianist oi to-morrow. As his fame grows, we wbo bear him now will always have the gratification of having beard tbe first pianist of tbe day in bis early prime. Sarasate's reputation has had longer time to grow than B' Albert's, and may exceed it now. .Many think him tbe first violinist of tbe day; certainly none of bis cotemporaries bin Joachim and Wilhelmj can for a moment be compared with him. That term, "the musical event of the season," which is so often abased, may, with a consider able degree of propriety, "be applied to the tiarasate-B' Albert coucert on the lS:h of Jan uary. Crotchets nnd Qanvera. riEEEE Bexoit's latest composition, enti tled The Rhine," pbtamed a tremendous suc cess at its recent first production at the Hague. The sympathy and good wishes ot many musical friends hover about the bed where Mr, Gllden R. Broadberry, man of many musical gift, lies seriously ill of typhoid fever. U3IA Romeldi, the new prima donna of' the Boston Ideals, is a Chicagoan. Her father, Julius Roemheld. is a well-known druggist and chemist of that city. A cotempobaex speaks ot the new Organ at St. "dames' Church, Wilkinsburg, as having "31 speaking stops, at a cost of neat ly 21,000." At such a price, many of tho&e stops must speak mighty small. Tnjs Poca-a-Poco Orchestra, conducted by Mrs. Br. J. S. Walters, and assisted by Miss Agnes Vogel and Mr. Josepb A. Vogel, will give a concert at tbe Butler Opera House to morrow (Monday) evening. It is reported that Mr. W.H. T.Abom, favorably known as director of tbo musical .department of Beaver Female College, has 'teen chosen to succeed Mr. Van Weller as organist and choirmaster of Emmanuel P. E. j Church, Allegheny. The Vienna Philharmonic Society will Shortly produce at one of tbeir concerts, and as a novelty, Muaart's Kottumo" for four string orchestras, each with two horns. Tbe work ' consists of tbe following three movements: Andante, allegro gracioso and minuet. AT tbe Fourth Avenuo Baptist Church last Sunday morning and evening tbe anthems cbosen were all written by Mr. Simeon Bissell. With tbe first Sunday of the new vear, this church will fall in line with the Eas't Liberty 4Frtsbyteiians, by caving a male quartet as the choir. From the enthusiastic manner In which tbe Boston critics peak of its rare combination of ..learning, geniality and inspiration, this con certo would be Just tbe proper violin number ifor one of the May concerts uy Mr. Nikisch and his' band with our Mozart Club. Perhaps a ,h!nt or two made thusariy may get us a better programme than labt yeail Mr. Constants Stf.knbeeo played re cltalson the 18th ultat Cincinnati, and una at Cleveland ou the 21st, With January next be will have played 75 consecutive engagements in OMO and aUJululUg States. His strange that Mr. Sternberg in all this running about passes over PltUt'UTg. BO good a plaulst and com. -.poser would be welcome here. A rEErOKMASfiiis reported from Brisbane, Australia, orMey-erbeer's 'Xe Prdpbete," sttng, In IVelibuk. the now "universal language." iXb berforoanceissaldto havegreaUypieasedV and to hare been repeated several times. And yet there are people wbo doubt the feasibility of grand opera in Eogllih. Bown In Australia they seem to be several generations ahead ol some other people. AX entertaining musicals was given on Thursday evening by the "No Name Club" at the residence of Mr. Anna Mdntyre, Greens burg. The active participants were Misses Cort anil Minnie and Vene'Goode, Messrs. Fennlman, Chew aad Edge, Br. Portser and tbo club's chorus. Me. Reese, of Darenport, Is-, conductor elect of our Frohsinn Society, preserves a strange silence as to bis plans with reference to the new post. In the meantime Mr. Ad. M. Foerster has been conductor pro tem.. and a growing element in the society favors making him such propositions as would persuade him to acoept the position permanently. It is a rather curious coincidence that Brahm'a violin concerto in B, op. 77, after ten years of American neglect, should be played at Chicago by young Theodore Binder on Novem ber 26 for "the first time in America." and sbonld also be chosen by Franz Knelsel for the Boston Symphony Orchestra concert of Decem ber?. Tbe concerto was written for Joachim and played byhlra at a BeipMg Gewandhaus concert on New Year's Bay, 1877. THE new, two-manual Wlrsohlng organ at St. James Church, Wilkinsburg, will be inaugu rated next "Wednesday evening. The pro gramme will enlist the aid of Organists Simeon BisselUJohn&Vogel, A. Frauenhelm and A. Bolincbroke, and the members of StPhilo meoa's and St. Augustine's choirs, with Mrs. W. F. McCook, Miss Agnes Vocel, Mrs. H. Averman and Mr. Joseph A. Vogel as soloists. Mr. John J. Lagerman is the regular organist of the church. Tna Paris Opera Comlqne will produce this season the following new works: "Bante," by Godard: "Circe." by Ambrolso Thomas; "Cas sia" (just finished), by Beo Belibes; "XSe Mer chant of Venice," by Buffer, and the following comic opera: Manager's "La Br.soche.'' Menry Marechal's "Ping Sing," and M.- G. Pfeiifer's "Le Legataire Oniversel." Tbe fol lowing older works are to be revived in a newly rovised edition: Gounod's "Mireille." Saint Saens' "Demetrius," and Massenet's "Manon." A further addition to the verv attractive list of essayists and artists for the Philadelphia meeting of the Pennsylvania State Music Teachers' Association, Becembcr 2G-28. Is put ting Mr. Charles Bavis Carter, of this city, down for an essay on "The Voice." All our music teachers and others interested in tbe art should attend the meeting If possible) if not, each sbonld at least be enrolled upon the mem btrshtp list, contributing bis little dollar and bis larger moral support to the now institution that belongs to the whole State, and ran be made with due encouragement a prime factor in our musical development. At the holiday concert of the Pennsylvania! Female College to occur next Tuesday evening, Mr. Joseph H. Glttings will cnntrlbuto piano solos by Barziei, Chopin and Bszt; Mrs. Edith B. Coster a recent and much-admired member of the faculty will ing songs by Rubinstein, Thomas and Bnva and give a recitation: Miss Mamie Reuck will play violin compositions ot Vieuxtemp, Hauser and Wleniawskl, and lit tle Miss Ethel Jones one of tbne prize pnpils that Mr. Glttings is so snecessful in discover ing and developing will play part of Mendels sohn's G minor concerts, her Instructor carry ing the orchestral part upon a second piano. The praiseworthy movement to preserve Beethoven's birthplace at Bonn in tbe shape of a permanent museum devoted to the master's memory has now spread to this country. For tbo benefit of tbis fund a concert will be given to-night at Steinway Hall, New York, the fol lowing artists having volunteered tbeir ser vices: Theodore Thorua" Conductor; Lillt Lehmann-Kaliscb, Panl Kalisch, Victor Her bert, tbe Ltederkranz male chorus and tbe members of tbe Philharmonic Society, tbe Thomas orchestra and the Metropolitan Opera House orchestra, in all 122 players. TriE cause of the American composer seems to be gaining ground. At a meeting held by the Brooklyn Philharmonic Society the direct ors decided to devote one of tbe ensuing con certs to tbe compositions of Americans. The works of representative native composers, re siding In tbis country or in Europe, are to be brought forward and given Impartial rendition. The wishes of composers are to be consulted, as far as choice of work is concerned, thereby giving an opportunity to those represented to be heard nnder conditions satisfactory to them selves. Has our Mozart Club forgotten the ex istence of ye native composer? THE present bookings of Abbey's great Patti Tamagno Operatio troupe make it close at Cin cinnati on Wednesday, the 12th of March, and open in Boston on Monday tbe 17th. Between the two are several open days and a long jump. passing through Pittsburg. There's tbe cbance for one or our enterprising managers to step in J and secure this strongest of all stage attractions for two or three nights and Saturday matinee. Tna Dispatcii asks co "solation" for the tip, but It knows that wealthy Pittsburg would be ready to pay right rovally to bear the only Pattl in better surroundings than ever before as well, as to bear Tamagno, whom many deem the greatest living tenor of the Italian school, indeed, Tamagno, as OUllo, the role he created in Verdi's last and greatest opera, which is now receiving Its first worthy production in Ameri ca, would be almost as strong an attraction as La Biva herself.
