THE PITTSBURG DISPATCH, ' SUNDAY, FEBRUARY ' 23,
1890. f HE MUSICAL WOKLD. iSnjjjicstions as to the Proper Use of the Carnegie Organ. BENEFIT OP AS ENDOWMENT FDKD. Jjocal Plajers Might Keep the KeysGoinjr Until One U Raised. "SIR. DDI'S ELCITAL LIST TUESDAY This community now has been formally presented with its first public organ. The gift was made to the municipality of Alle gheny. But that does not matter; in things artistic, at least, the sister cities are one community. Pittsburg liavinz had so far all the artistic advantases such as they were-hat shared ireely with her little sis ter. Allegheny will not be stingy with her new plaything. Eight here a query: "What sort of a play thing will the new organ be? Something like the fine French doll that mamma keeps snugly under lock and key, to be brought out onlv on great occasions? Or will it be like the common rubber doll which its in faulile owner is permitted to use and abuse at her own sweet will and which for its very commonness she soon despisesf That organ oyer there is surely worthy of the best usaca. Its speciflcatlons have been already ciTenby The Dispatch. It looks well on paper no better, however, than several instru ments in our churches. It looks better in its commandinc position In the handsome halL Bui best of aliis the way It sound. ThU it not true of all oreans; chnrch committees often have more eyes than ears. j.. Cntrammeled by such limitations in price as too often cause an organ to be built upon the cheese-partne system nd,,haTinE quite S? ideal place-backed by a solid wall, with no ob struction above or beslde-ln which to build it. The Roosevelts have been able in this instrument to put their best foot forward. Whi the separate fctops are finely tndividnalixed in quality, they unite in the fnll orean to produce a smooth and homogeneous tone. In which .the dienltv of the foundation stops and the bril liance" of the reeds and mixtures maintain each its proper proportion. This is rare; the best builder cannot be sore to hit it; it dependsupon a combination of circumstances oyer wwen he bat no control. Power it there in abund ance; enough to make that hall ring again. Indeed, for some kinds of passages narked "Full Swell" "Full Organ," elegit is better on this instrument to except the 16-fwt stops on the swell and creatand the pedal trombone, retnectirely. , ., 0. Thisislareelrdue to the extraordinary 8 K. Open Diapason on the Great, which has a re markably rich, broad, pure and po'erfnltone the best example hereabouts of what is the organ tone par excellence. The 16 ft Open Diapason onthe Great Is also a fine specimen. These two Btops are worth more, from an ar tistic standpoint, than an entire organ of a cer tain class. Each of the BweU reeds oboe, cornopean and vox nuroana-is a most excellent repre sentative of its class. Kothinc. could exceed the limpid purity of tone shown in the four foot flutes on BweU and Choir; and the eight foot Doppel Floetoon the Great strikes the colden mean between the "mushy" and the metallic extremes of tone often met within this stop. The eicht-f oot Gamba. ought to be a bit stronger, perhaps: but it possesses, in com mon with the Gergen Principal, a very smooth, yet penetrating, tone. All the string tones are of the first quality. ..,- The action is remarkably even and light so licht tas to bother an onanist used to expend many foot-pounds in pressing down a single key. The two swell-boxev with balanced pedals, the adjustable combinations and other mechanical accessories unite in placing the player in the most convenient control or all the resources of the organ, making it vastly more effective than an instrument with many more stops, but without such modern aids to playing. Buch an organ to leturn to our sheep should be so used as to make it of the greatest possible benefit to the community. It will be of little good, it keptcontantly under lock and key. It must be used, and used as often as it can be. in every way likely to advance the cause of music in the community. There is talk ot an endowment fund to sup ply the library department with books. Why not raise such a fund to supply the orgsn with cood players and with singers to assist in a permanent series of free organ concerts? The best plan would probably be to induce some concert-orgaulst of the first rank to locate here, giving him a good salary for playing reg ular recitals at least weekly assisted from time to time by other performers, vocal and instrumental. . Pending such a scheme the concerts can be inaugurated at once by our own players. Out ot public spirit combined with the advantages of practice unon such an instrument and tho incidental advertisement enough local play ers would certainly volunteer their services to carry on the weekly recitals dnring the remain der of this season at least Other performers would come forward in the same way. The concerts should be given on Baturday afternoon of one week and the next on tho Sunday atternoon eight days later and so on. As has been amply shown in the case of Mr. Phipps' greenhouses. Sunday afternoon is tho time when a large portion of the people met need and is best able to take advantage of the refining influences of nature and of art. And organ music stands high among the more refined and elevating forms of art. It wonld be preferable to have the admission absolutelv free, and expenses would be so slight as to make this possible. At the same time, a small charge say 10 to 15 cents would not keep manv awav, might make some pnze the privi lege more, and wonld soon form a nucleus for a fund to be used in extending the musical use Jnlnesi of the ball and organ, in the manner above indicated. To commenco in this way would serve two objects. It would not only give the people at large much of the benefit they should have in the way of hearing good music but almost as Important It would help immensely to improve onr breed of organists, which sadly needs im proving. Along the latter line, also, permission should be given, under proper restrictions and assurances, for the use of the organ by .worthy and talented pupils, even though they be not at once able to take part in the public recitals. ... .... tttl(.v n...a wrwri thncA In charge of Mr. Carnegie's princely gift to pro vide careiully and wisely for the use of the organ so as to get the greatest public good out of it, Jnst as they must provide for the library. As a matter of fact, few measures could be adopted tor the express purpose of populariz ing the whole building and brinaing the people at large to the point of utilizing the library itself, that would be more effectual than the giving of regular free organ concerts in Music One thing mora. Let the concert organists of the Country take notice hereby that Allegheny is now in their field. If, When meditating a trip in this direction, they will place themselves in communication with some or our musical leaders, Mr. Charles C Mellor, for instance, who has done more than any one else to make that organ what it is and to make the people enjoy it since it has been opened, arrangements may be made to their and onr mutual advantage. Musical papers aud columns please copy. A distinctly cultured and fashionable audi ence heartily enjoyed though not permitted to show it by applause the organ concert given by Mr. Clarence Eddy, of Chicago, at the Church of the Ascension, on Ellsworth avenue, last Tuesday evening.

Ceclle, No. t Batiste - Mr. Clarence Kddr. The new Barckboff organ has bat two man " v nils, and not many stops on either. It was, moreover, either not quito finished up or alreadv in need of repairs. Mr. Eddy triumphed oier all obstacles, like the experienced artist bets. Borne effects that he wrung from the un willing instrument were quite surprising. His deft and tasteful registration remains perhaps the most striking feature of his playing, though bis technique is admirable in all lines. Mr. Eddy always plays in mnsicianly style and with tasteful phrasing! on this occasion he in jected more feeling Into tome of the telec tions than he has hitherto displayed In this citv Mr. Eddy is one of the conceit organists whom we want to hear plav the new Carnegie organ. He says he would like to do so hlmseit, and hope' that a caravan of eminent organists, native and foreign, will be journeying to the great Auditorium organ In Cbicago(Mr. Eddy s pride and delight), among whom many would doubtless like to stop off here. . . The vocalists who assisted Mr. Eddy one and all sustained their high reputations, which have been often stated at length in tnese columns. The promised recital by Hans von Buelow, April 25. is already a topic of much interest in onr musical circles. This is what the Berlin National Zatung said upon the double occa sion of his recent recital there and ot his at taining the respectable age of 60: , "On Wednesday, Jannary SH. at the Bing Acad emy. Hans von Buelow gave a "nde"nf0 Beethoven's last sonatas a per01"! '" hich for the past 20 years or more he has stooa single and unequaled, and in which with eacn repetition he e en excels himself. .... "If ever his playing was characterized Dy a desire to teach it has now fnlly disappeared. Mind and soul have so penetrated these hlgn est creations of piano muslchat In Buelow s rendering wo loot: into tho very deptns oi Beethoven's genius. . , .,,. "No art grous more ruinous by low P" tions of superficiality and desire f or applause than music; and none can more thoroughly edu cate and elevate the mmd than music in tne perfection of its masterworks. hIn do "Not for pleasure, but for the worship do Beethoven's last sonatas call forth the musical congregation to assemble in a temple, boil .not by human hands, but one whose founda tions are laid in the depths of our souls. The spirit of God dwells in them. wi lmmeasurablement has Bnelow not won that ne has not grown tired of preaching their gospel in two hemispheres. He has entirely conquered the early indifference and occadonal opposl tion and now the largest hall will not bom tho throngs that swarm .o hear him. "At today's performance &e praise of the master and apostle could be heard In almost every language. America on the Westand Asia on the East had their oontjngents. Gray heads and youthful laces had united to do worship. Many followed reverently intheir scores.Here a tie has been discovered which unites separated nation' in the noblest senti ments of veneration and love. "May the artist who has jnst completed his 60tn year vet long be spared to fulfill his mis sion of culture and civilization. .Not ; in the tendency and compliance with tho weak and small, not In the Immediate accomplishment of selt-will, but in the diffusion of that recognized as the highest, consists the merit of the man, who, in a long strug gle, has won for himself the admiration or the peoule. Even though all bears the stamp of perfection and the detail disappears in the completeness of the whole, it shall not prevent us from mentionlngwlth especial gratitude the sweet singing of the F sharp minor adagio of the B major sonata, the attainment of the Im possible in the storm of the B major fugue and tne neavenry reiuigcncc u msnov. 0 major variations. .
