Bertha Mn) a pianist of considerable European reputation and who has long been Sarasate's chosen associate on the concert stage, will assist the great violinist in the andante from Beethoven's "Kreutrer" sonate and in BafTs graceful "La Fee d' Amour," writ ten for violin and piano. Sarasate will also play his brilliant "Faust" fsntasle. J)' Albert -will play a portion of Beet hoovcn's sonate, op S3, in C, Chopin's Ber ceuse, Bnbinstein'i Barcarolle in A minor, the Stranss-Tansig waits "Man Lebt nur Einmal." Grieg's "Norwegian Bridal, Pro cession," and Liszt's Tarantella from the "Venexia e Napoli." The combination of these two artists for a goncert tour has not been equaled in this JfoW) -Eugen D1 Albert. country since the joint visit of Eubenstein and Wieniawski, which yet lingers in the memories of the older generation. It is, to car the least, extremely doubtful if the present generation will have another such opportunity. The above cut of the great little pianist, is a faithful copy of the recent photograph by Barony, New rTork. It hardly does justice to the leonine head or else D'Al bert has changed considerably in the five years since the writer used to hear him in Berlin. The following biographical sketch rests upon the authority of the management of this tonr: Eocene Francois Charles D'Albert was born at Glasgow, in Scotland. April 10, 1864, and will therefore be less than 25 years old when lie visits America. His lather, Charles Louis Na poleon D'Albert, was a son ot a captain of cav alry in the French army, npon whose death the motbet and son emigrated to England. Charles D'Alb rt was a successful composer of dance music, who married and settled in .England at Newcastle-on-Tyne. Young D' Albert's genius for music exhibited Itself at an early ace and He was carefully tanght by his father. In 1S78 be obtained a free scholarship in the National Training School. London, where he was taught pianoforte by Ernest Paner.bannoay and coun terpoint by Dr. Stainer organist of St. Paul's; orchestration by Ebeueer Front, and composi tion by Arthur Sullivan. On the recommenda tion of the latter be obtained in 1S8L the Mendelssohn scholarship, so that he could po abroad for a year for additional studies. He made rapid progress under his teachers in En Eland, and composed an overture, which waa performed at a students' concert in St. James Hall, 1879; also an original pianoforte concerto in A, at a Bichter concert in 1S8L and Rubinstein's concerto in D minor, 1SS1 At Bichter's invitation he wen' to Vienna, and subsequently to Weimar, where he stndted under Liszt, who called him the young Tausic, in allusion to his extraordinary technique. His overture "Hvperion" was played at a Alchter concert in 1SSS, and a symphony in F, op. 4, in 1888. A string quartet of his was played at Vienna last winter, and a dramatic overture at the Tonkunstlerfest at Cologne, in 1SS7. He is nowngaged in the composition of a grand opera. frtVon Bnlow has said: "There are but three great pianists in the "world, Bubin stein, myself and D'Albert; but the last is yeyoung, and bids fair to surpass us all." That was some time ago. and the then brill iant promise has been amply fulfilled. D'Albert stands to-day unquestionably the best all round pianist alive. . Joachim might say if Ton Buelow would Jend his tongue "There are but three peat violinists in the world, myself, "Wil helmj and Sarasate, but the last in his own particular field can surpass us all." Pablo Martin Meliton de Sarasate is a bachelor, and was born in 1844 at Pampe luna, Spain. He is rather small in figure, but strikingly handsome in feature and well posed in manner. He ajpeaks French, Spanish and a little English, and has but little to say of himself unless questioned. Fablo de Saratate. He ii Sarasate, the only, but he does not seem to feel that he is the greatest violinist since PaganmL When Barasate was a young man be visited the United States, and created no impression. Since then he has won fame all through Europe. His appearances are yet reckoned events of prime importance even in those musical centers where the world's greatest artists are frequently heard. He plays a genuine Stra divarius, the value of which cannot be estimated. It is insured for 515,000, and Tie never allows anyone else to touch it. As tokens of his successes in all parts of the civTliied world, Sarasate has received a bewildering variety of decorations, orders, medals, honorary professorates, etc. But the artist honors them, not they the artist. - For the third chamber music matinee of tbe Beethoven Quartet Club on January 25, the following programme has been chosen: Quartet op. S - Weber The Violet. Morart Mrs. W.B. Wolfe. Trio.p..3Tol, for strings. .Beethoven Mignon..... .............Liszt Mrs. W.B. Wolfe. Prize quartet, op. 18 Bnngert The prize alluded to in the last title was offered oy the famous Florentine Quartet, and awarded, to Bnngert by Brahms and Volkmann, acting as Judges. The- motto of the composi tion Is: "Una deia streben sets in Hebe, TJnd deln lelbea eel die tht Besides commenting very pleasantly upon the part taken by the various Pittsburg ertUts'atUe State Music Teachers' Associa tion, ,,the Philadelphia JfuxieoJ Journal .v n '-'yus mr (official journal) prints the following full critique ution the playing of oar youngest representative: Among the many strangers attendlnc the recent meetings of the Pennsylvania Stats Music Teachers' Association was a roans girl from Pittsburg, Miss Ethel Jonesj IS years old, who Is a very promising musical talent. She was accompanied by her teacher, Mr. J. H. Gittings, who is an officer of the association. Kiss Jones has made such advancement in the art of pianoforte playing that we may call her a youne -artist. Her technique is already much advanced, and speaks well for her tutor. Mr. Gittings, under whose Instruction she has been for the last four years, and he has just cause to feel proud of her attain, menta. Her artistic conception and expression are even more developed, while her strength of mind and grasping power of intricate musical forms wenave seen excelled by one of her ace. She played the Fugue In C minor from Bach's Inventions, from memory, without a single error, to the aeucnt oi me many teacn era and musicians present at the reception Friday night. At a subsequent private rehearsal we had the pleasure of hearing her play a song of Mendelssohn's known by the name ot "Sympa thy," in a manner that did credit to the title, and which we appreciated the more because her Interpretation was so pure and natural, without the least sign of affectation; it was a natural outDurst or youne renins. This she followed with Mendelssohn's Concerto In G minor, Mr. Gittings accompany ing her with the orchestral part on a second piano. In the finale he purposely hurried her to. greater speed and force, but she kept equally up, to the last, and without the slight est evidence of flurriedness or excitement, striking the last chord as deliberately as the first, without an apparent sign of physical ex haustion. She also played Schumann's novelette In F, and Goddard's mazurka with a strength hardly to be expected from a girl of her ace, and all these compositions without the notes, showing that her gifts were not merely imitations, but of a higher order. Her manner was devoid of all affectation, natural and child-like, yet not in the least childish. We predict for this young talent a brilliant future, earnestly hoping that her health may be preserved, and that in ber future progress she may have as efficient directions and op portunities as sne has thus tar en'oyeo. V "With reference to the shockingly bad company sent over to produce Gilbert & Sullivan's latest, The Dispatch has the 'following from London by Dunlap's Cable Company: It is reported here that D'Oyly Carte has re ceived a cable from Mr. Palmer demanding the discharge of most ot the "Gondoliers" Company. Carte was seen to-night at the Sa voy Hotel. He said there was no nse attempting to disguise the fact of the failure and that he was deeply mortified, bnt could not under stand it at alL He had not cabled the order to discharge the people objected to, but had decided to sail for New York with his wife, nee Miss Helen Lenoir, and Sir Arthur Sullivan to Judge for them selves. He retuses Mr. Palmers demand for change of company till his arrival in America. He considers the company a good one in spite of Mr. Palmer's state mentsbetter than the Mikado Company ot 'S5. Mr. Temfile is the original Dead Eye in "Pinafore." The other members of the company bad been in the provinces for years. They were rehearsed at the Savoy i neater oyouiuvan ana tne stage manager, not by Gilbert. He can only account for the flatness of the performance by the fatigue of a stormy voyage and demoralization by the treatment received from the New York press. Carte's manner suggested a strong feel ing at the tendency to disparage English actors. The departure of Sullivan and himself is a secret in London. ". Older concert goers will remember the brilliant playing at Library Hall some 10 or 12 years ago of the pianist referred to in the following London special, received per Dunlap's Cable Company: "A petition Ipr a pension to Mme. Arabella Goddard, the well-known pianist, has Jnst been refused by Parliament. At the same time W. H. Smith refused this, he offered to appro priate 200 from the bounty fund toward the public subscription being raised. Miss Goddard (Mrs. Dain) is old, and wanting the necessities otlife."' Crotchet! Rod Quaver. Louis xTxthal, well known in musical cir cles as a baritone and the husband of Mrs. Nat all. late ot Gnstav Hinricbs' Opera Com pany, died last Thursday week. Mb. J. Fostzb McCune has resigned his position as precentor of the Fourth Presby terian Church to accept a similar place at the Point Breeze Presbyterian Church. Win, the crisp and chatty "Baconteur" of the ilutical Courier pray accept thanks tor his pretty little compliment to The Dispatch and us musical column, printed in last week's issue of that leading musical weekly T c Ms. Johk EoAir. formerly with the Boose velt firm, but now with Hook & Hastings, has been in the city to pnt up the new two-manual organ In tbe German Lutheran Church, Alle gheny, of which Mr. Theodore Wettach is or ganist. The efficient New York telegraph operator of Tex Dispatch, Mr. Roland W. Mossman, has just had published a pretty waltz of his composition, entitled "La Belle Blonde." Mr. Mossman is also the composer of the ".Excelsior Bchottiscbe." Tub holiday number of the American Mutictan, though late In coming to hand, proves to be a truly remarkable issue, com prising 100 pages of interesting matter, with many special features, besides three supple mentary pages of handsome portrait cuts. AT the meeting of tbe directors of the Art Society, held last TueBday evening at the Pitts burg Club, it was determined to take no an ag gressive campaign for the remainder of the season, holding receptions each month and pro viding for them special attractions pictorial, literary and musical. Miss 8. H. Ktli.ieellt entertained a num ber ot musical friends at her Hiland avenne home last Monday evening. Mrs. Manrice L Coster, Mrs. Mary R. Scott, Mrs. John F. Wil cox, Messrs. Frederick J. Bussman, Paul Zim merman, and William B Edwards took part in the impromptu song programme. The "Art Musical" will resume ItsJIelightful receptions to-morrow evening at the' residence of Mrs. Mary F. Scott, Grant avenne, Alle gheny. The club Includes such members as Mrs. William B. Wolf e, Mrs. C. L. Magee, Miss Grace Miller, ss Scbmertz, Miss Emilv Mc Creery, Messrs. F. J. Bussman, Eois vV. Drum and others of like musical and social standing. The notice, received a few days since, of the election of the writer of this column as an honorary member of the Great Western Band, embodies a graceful compliment which is gratefully received and acknowledged. This kindly action Is the more heartily appreciated by the writer as be looks back over tbe pro longed discussion of the once-vexed nnlon auestion, upon which The Dispatch and the reat Western Band formerly held such radi cally opposite views, A neat card comes to hand announcing the birth, December 2L 1SS9, of Buth Estelle, daughter ot William H. and Estelle F. Sher wood, In Chicago. The many musical friends of Mr. Sherwood, as well as the school girl friends of his charming wife (who, as Miss Estelle F. Abrams. was once Mr. Gittings' crack pupil at tbe Pennsylvania Female Col lege) will join In hearty congratulations and a half dozen years hence will search the musical horizon for the rising star of a new planistic prouigy. . t At the second annual banquet of the Bar Association, held at the N ew Hotel Schlosser last Monday evening, some excellent singing was indnlged In by Mr. J. J. Miller, who gave a baritone solo, and by a double quartet, which included Messrs. X Boyd Duff, Unas. 8. Craw ford, Eawin W. Smith. Wm. "W. WhiteselL James H. Collins and others. All takinr nart even to the accompanist, were lawyers or, at least (remembering "Glorious Old Tom's" dis tinction with a difference), members of the Bar Association. The Carleton Opera Company, which appears fitthe Bijou during the week of January 20, will present to tbe Pittsburg public two New York Casino snccesses,Genee's delightful opera "Hanon," and Offenbach's "The Brigands." Mr. Carleton is well remembered by our theater goers; this season his company has been re garded by many as tne best one be overbad. It is composed of 60 members, including a ch6rnS6f6a All the scenery is said to be en tirely new and tbe costumes elaborate. Mr. J. K. Murray, the baritone, well known in Pitts burg, is in jhe cast of both operas. Peteb Cobxxuttb' opera "The Barber of Bagdad," produced at the Metropolitan Opera House on the ltd Instant for the first time In this country, scored a decided success. Mr. Krefiblel says, In the Tribune: "It is a superb work, fresh as the morning, brilliant as a jewel, ana might furnish texts for a sermon running unto fortiethly. Every department of tbe es tablishment covered itself with glory In bring ing it out" Such success makes an especially bright feather In tbe cap of Associate Conduc tor Walter Damorsch. who directed the per formance, Mr. Seldl being seriously ill with pneumonia. ASHOTJircEXEKT is made of the coming to America In May ot the Straus Orchestra, .of Vienna, led by Kdward Stratus, who, since the retirement of Johann from active orchestral work some 15 years ago, has bees the leader of the famous orchestra. The band has been un der the direction of the father and soas of this celebrated musical family fer ever W ysat0.and great interest will be felt la, America lirthe in terpretation of the popular muslo of the Strausses by the orchestra which tbev have themselves had so long in training. It is un derstood that the orchestra will make a tour of the entire country under the direction of Mr, Biakely, the manager of Gllmore's Band and of the late Thomas tour. ' Mb. Nikibch'S programme for the twelfth symphony concert. at Boston comprised these three compositions: Borodin's first Symphony, In E flat; Baint-Saen's concerto for violin, in B minor, No, 8, op. 61, and Volkmann's festival overtnr e in F, op. 6a All were novelties, the Russian symphony receiving its first hearing in America and gaining much praise. In this pro gramme Mr. Niklsch swings quite to the oppo site extreme from the conservative Teutonism which has hitherto characterized his selections. Last night's programme presented a new sym pbonlo poem by that gtited young American, E.A.McDowel(entitled."liancelotandElaine," Gade's O minor and Schumann's piano con certothe last played by Mrs. Anna Bteimger Clark, well remembered. in Pittsburg. Ik a recent criticism in tba Boston Home Journal Mr. Hale writes apropos ot pianos in large balls: "It Is an open question whether our enormous balls and our grand pianos hays not seriously affected the art of piano playing. The piano is an Instrument of limited re sources, far better fitted for chamber mnsio and for recitals in small halls than for a Ufa and death struggle with a modern orchestra In an 'auditorium.' The Inevitable piano concerts incites too often merelypopnlar won der at physical endurance, and it suggests a gymuastlo suit as a more appropriate costume than the conventional evening dress." There is much truth in Mr. Hale's observations, though they do not touch Pittsburg very close ly, where we have no large hall, no permanent orchestra and therefore too few, rather than too many, piano concerts, Upon the playing of a young artist, whose first American residence was in Pittsburg, the Musical Courier has this to say the occasion being the opening of the Lenox Lyceum by Theodore Thomas, referred to in this column last Sunday. -"A genuine surprise and a most pleasing one was the first appearance here of Mr. Franz WUczek, a young Austrian violinist and a pupil of Joachim. He came, played and conquered. He was heard in Wlenlawski's Romance and Finale a la Ztngara,' which he performed with exquisite tone, purity of into nation, excellent and finished technlc and good bowing, and he pleased the public no less through the artlstlo value of his playing than by means of the charm and apparent modesty of his personality, both of which acted like a genuine revelatisn. It goes without saying that the young artist was heartily applauded and after a triple recall he added as an encore Sarasate's difficult Zigeunerweisen which, un der Victor Herbert's direction of the orches tral accompaniment, waa performed in a most brilliant manner." A EAILE0AD CLUCK SCHEME. The Time on the Burllnfitoa Bead Will be Absolutely Correct. Chicago, January 1L The Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Bailway Company is about to adopt a system that will make alT the clocks on its various lines synchron ize' with the clock in the general office of. Chicago. This system, on which Gen eral Inspector of "Watches Baymoud Greggs has been working since last March, is bated upon a novel principle. Briefly explained, it consists ot lbO self-winding and( self setting clocks, which will be placed at all innction Toints on the Unrllnr-tnn. ThpiA .clocks will be connected with tne telegraph instrument, ana once every zi hours the operators will correct them with the master clock in this city by en operation no more intricate than turning a switch. 'Within three-firths of a second, while all the clocks are thus joined, they will be synchronized. Thus absolutely correct time will be guar anteed at every station on the road between Denver, St. Paul, Minneapolis, Omaha, St. Joseph, Kansas Citv and Chicago. The advantage of this system is that no special wires are required, and, as the clocks wind themselves every hour, they re quire no attention beyond occasionally re newing the electric batteries. Mr. Gregg starts this morning with the clocks, and ex pects to have them all in place and the sys tem in operation bv February 1. At that time the "five-minute leeway" will be done away with, and all trains will start at the moment designated in the orders. This ar rangement, it is said, will greatly lessen the danger of accidents. hi A HAS0NI0 BAKQDET. Meeting of the Auditing Committee, Lodge 45, Last Evening. The members of the Auditing Committee, of Lodge iS, F. and A. M., gave a banquet at the Seventh Avenue Hotel, last evening. Each member had the privilege of inviting a friend, and consequently plates were laid for 80 people. The retiring master, Mr. Butledge, presided. It is an annual affair, and each year after the accounts have been audited some member makes a motion that the committee adjonrn to a convenient din ing hall and spend the evening in banish ing from their weary brains the care-which has attended an examination of the columns of figures. They were all in evening dress, and each member and each guest was ex pected to entertain the assemblage with a song or story! BT. LOUIS FOB REFORM.

That H What They Call it toe the Mm tart I 30 Above Zero. Chicago, January 11. Sergeant Frank enfield received orders from "Washington this morning to hoist the cold wave flag. "It will be as much as 80 degrees above aero to-night," said the Sergeant, shivering at the thought. "That does not look much like a cold wave, bnt when yon come to think of a drop from 6 9 where the ther mometer stood 'this morning to 80, it it a big change." A heavy south wind, di rect'from the cotton and sugar cane conn try, swept through Chicago this morning. It had attached to it a mellow warmth that was very comforting and made the 'ther mometer climb to a higher point than it has touched in many a day. Forty-five de grees were reached early this morning, and then' the wind made a spurt that cleared the skr of laggard clouds that had tailed behind from last night's rain, and the mercury whooped it up to the point indicated by Ser geant Frankenfield. Although the Signal Service office ther mometer is the dfficial and doubtless the nearest correct, there were not a few ther mometers this morning that indicated0, 61 and 62 above, the kind of weather that gets around just about April. It has been a great manv years since such weather 'has been equaled in Chicago. Last winter was an exceptionally mild one, but the ther mometer never reached 59. Closing Ont Qor Stock of Kugs.
