THE MUSIC WORLD.
Opinions Fro and Con the Question of Playing Without tfotes. TALENTED PITTSBDRGERS ABROAD Mr. Saddler Astonishes Munich and Mr. Jietin Captures Boston. DOIKGS IN LOCAL MUSIQAL CIRCLES A pretty discussion is going the rounds upon the question: "Does this playing withoBtr notes pay?" The Musical Herald, in raising the issue, points to the mental and nervous strain usually incident to playing before an audi ence, and properly queries whether it is worth while to add the effort of reproducing a composition note for note, expression mark for expression mark. The Philadelphia Musical Journal takes up the discussion in the same vein. The opposite side is stoutly maintained by mat mgniy repuiauie musician, Jir. vsouxa I XiaTallee, in a letter to the last named jour I nal, the cist ot which is io these three sen. I tences: "I it ill answer that it is a necessity to I memorize; in fact, any work cannot be thought I and rendered properly unless tbe mind is en Itlrely absorbed between the author and Icerformer. In my experience II hare never found any mental Istraln in memorizing, and I believe (any performer with a proper musical instinct Twill corroborate my statement. Fertorwers who cannot memorize are not, in a strict sense Of the word, born musicians, and iu all cases icy read rather than thmh a wort." Mr. Lavallee is certainly to be felicitated: ould that all nerlormers wero similarly con- tituted. It may readily be granted that the eal artist should be able, without undue .rain, to nlav his renertolrn from mnmnrv tith absolute fidelity to tbe composer and yet ith the tpontaneity of improvisation. Ihe question, "does it paT" however, is irected not only toward tbe ideal; it is rather questtonof expediency. And there are seri ns doubts whether it i expedient to en- ourage unreservedly the fast-growing fashion f memorizing. Note that this is a question of means, net of inn. All true artists aim at the same thing jo convey to the listener with tbe utmost com pleteness and effectiveness just what tbe com Kwer indicates by his written symbols. Toe iroblem is to minimize friction in tbe macbin ry, physical and mental, which intervenes be . ween these written symbols and the listener's :ar. , The use of notes requires extra movements pf the hand and mind tor the purpose of turn ing the pages. This obstacle, as tar as it goes, (does furnish an argument for memorizing. But ht is a purely mechanical obstacle, which in Iventive genius has in large part overcome: and, (even if none of the patent music-tnrners" are satisfactory, surely a prettj assistant turn I in; the leaves would be an adjunct quito as f unobjectionable as tbe "supe" that raises the piano lid. It is also generally true that the impression produced upon tbe audience by tbe use of I notes is slightly unfavorable. In some degree i this also gives an argument for memorizing. But to a large extent this unfavorable impres I sion arises because it is the fashion to play I without notes; while the correlative favorable impression produced by the exhibition of mem ory is very largely like other technical feats, a ' non artistic matter of wonder and admiration at the player's personal prowess. . These are really side issues, however. The true point is whether or not the use of notes does distract the player's attention from the work itself; whether memorizing means free dom. That depends primarily upon tbe individual player's organization. It cannot be conceded by any means that "a proper musical instinct" invariably implies a faculty for memorizing Miufi.iiiiiiuiu ujcmuij, auu uiigui as well Bay that tbe clergtmanubo preaches wlthont notes is the only one possessing a proper relig ious spirit. b Tbe memorv is a distinct faculty; It may be highly developed, though tbeotberfaculties be npon a low plane; Econveito, it may he weak and faulu. though the otbertaculties be strong and keen. One performer may find it easier to reij Eoieiy on no memory lor the musical subject-matter he is transmuting Into sound for his audience. Anotber, who possesses the fame or higher musical gifts and who has -studied the work in hand as thorongly may And that the effort to remember isan element of friction and constraint, and may feel altogether freer and easier in his musical interpretation if he has the notes before him. Each indi vidual should be left perfectly free to choose -whichever mode he finds best suited to him. The critics and the public will tell him whether he displays "a proper musical instinct" or not. and the matter of his using or dispensing with the notes should have little or.no bearing upon their verdict. Anotber aspect of the question may be touched upon. Air. Lavallee objects to players Who "read rather than (Ami; a work." A mo ment's reflection will show that this is iust what tbey ought to do. It is not meant by this to encourage sight-readlne or other lack of preparation In public, nor yet to deny that the piajer must use his utmost endeavor to iden tify himself with the composer. But he must not identify the composer with himself, which is quite auother thing and the most common ot faults. The true artist reads a composition; makes himself tbe vehicle of another's ideas. It is tbe self-important Tirtuoso who presumes to (Ami, a composition: that i, to give It forth as lie conceives it ought to be, to create rather than to interpret, to give tbe audience more of his own personality tban of the composer's. The noblest quality in an interpretative artist is an entire self-abnegation, a complete sur render of himself to tbe composer. This quality, difficult of attainment by any, is especially so when one plavs without notes, Kvery flaw or dimness in memory's picture of what. tbe composer depicted, must needs, in the exigency of performance, be filled out and touched up with the player's own pig. stents. It is questionable if atnmonlur in terpretatlon ot any extended composition was ever as faithful to the composer's meanings as the same player would have been with thenotes before him. It would seem, too, as If the sight of the printed page would by association or ideas materially aid the player in a varied pro gramme to pass luto tbe proper frame of feel ing lor tbe composition next to be played. Actors tell how tbe particular costume helps them to ieel the character to which it belongs. An actoris praised for versatility, if he assume two contrasting roles in one evening. A pian ist Is often required in one recital to as sume and feel and reproduce in rapid succession the different moods of the composers from Bach down to Tscbaikowsku It Is small wonder it all tho imcceb are Mrongiy lmDued with the olaver's per sonality, especially if he attemp'ts "to keeD tne m all floating around loose in his memory. V ould not the printed page serve as a material rallying point for tbe floating ideas and emo tions appropriate to that composition and thus Kirn the plater genuine assistance in differ entiating his interpretations! himself to other and larger forms of composi tion. A string quartet and a piano concerto are now in hand, and a cantata for the Cincin nati chorus has been promised by autumn. Of Mr. Kevin's larger works the only 9".B.T Eubllshed is the setting of Engene Fields lutch lullaby, "Wynken, Blynken and Nod, for solo, chorus and four-band piano accom paniment, which has already been noted in this column when the Mozart Club ordered it just too late for the ballad concert. It has only been out a few months, but nearly three thousand copies have been usea by choruses all over the country. A the last concert of the Cecilia Society, of Bos ton, a few weeks ago, the "Dutch Lullaby 'was received with such prolonged applause mat Conductor B. J. Lang bad to suspend his rule and permit its repetition. The critics fully confirmed the popular verdict, as the following lines from one so reliable as Mr. Louis C. Elson will show: "The triumph of the evening was won by Etbelbert Kevin, whose 'Wynken, Blynken and Nod' is as dainty and graceful a composi tion as has recentlv come from that cherished individual, the American composer; a little touch of Wagnerian effect in tbe piano Inter lude was not harmful. Tbe quaint refrain was finely managed. Miss Isabel Dodd sang the solo very gracefully, and, altogether, liurene Field's playful vet tranauil poem could scarce ly have found better interpretation. With Men delssohn's setting of the Thirteenth Psalm the concert ended. It wa a worthy close to the season, and almost causes one to forget that we have been surfeited with music during the past seven months, and gives a tinge of regret to the " Vale."

After the intoxicating success of their ap pearance at the "Rose Bazar" last week, the members of the Oakland Ideal Orchestra will take the summer to sober up in, resuming reg ular rehearsals in the fall. MB. WlLlIAM GtrENTHER. with his own orchestra and the Great Western Band, under Mr. B. Wels, will reopen tbe summer-night concert season at Silver Lake Grove on Thurs day evening of this week. All signs are auspicious for a revival of fashionable interest in this resort, which is entirely too pretty to re main deserted. The Mozart Club wound up its season with the customary social evening at Old City wall last Monday evening. There is some talk of a club excursion to the seashore, with incidental music-making en route, but the probabilities are that the club's summer trio will be taken vicariously in tbe person of Director McCollum, for whom a snug purse has been made up for that very purpose. An eager public wonld like to know the names of the two organists who, according to an afternoon cotemporary, unanimously re solved that the organ in Carnegie Hall "is very ineffective and disappointing," while the one in the East Liberty Presbyterian Church is "the most complete and artistically satisfac tory organ they bad ever tried or heard." And the names will have to be big ones to support that opinion. Though very little has been prlntedabouther appearance here, it is certain that Miss Marie Decca, of Washington City, scored an excep tional success at the Marine Band concert of Saturday night a week ago. The testimony of many who heard her is unanimous to that effect, and raises the hope tbatshe may sometime again be beard here on an occasion w hen attention will be directed more to the musical than the social and charitable features. Mr. Sousa and his band also earned a hearty welcome for a return trip some day. Few traveling musical organizations can point to a continuous season of 80 weeks. Fewer of the concert-giving "musical families" can show gennine blood relationship between their members. Our -neighboring town. New Brighton, however, is tbe home of the Noss lamily father, mother and rive children which possesses both of these rare distinctions. During the prolonged teur just completed each member of this remarkaoie family has contributed bis or her share to the musical en tertainments tbey gave, among tbe features of which were an operetta, "The Lottery Ticket," by Mr. George O. Jenks. of Pittsburg, and a musical comedy, "The Quick Match," by Frank Dnmont. " Chicago has some prospect of having a sym phony orchestra ot the highest class A euaran tee fund ot not less than $100 000 is being raised to do for it what Mr. Hizginson has done for Boston. Mr. Carl Woirssohn, one of the Windy City's leading pianists and teachers, having headed the list with a cool 51,000, is go ing to spendsnmo of his vacation time in search ing Europe for a condnctor. It is proposed also to organize a strong chorus in connection with the orchestra, and the giving of opera in En glish is a possible development of tbe enter prise. Who will bead a similar subscription for Pittsburg? We have an ever-growing public demand, and a good part of the material, for a permanent, high class orchestra; all we need is another score or so of players, a conductor of sufficient eminence, and the money. AS well because of the Pittsburg composer at its close, as in the light of a foretaste of what we will bear at the Exposition in the fall, the following programme, given last Satur day evening at Prospect Park, Brooklyn, by Mr. F. If. Innes and his Thirteenth Regiment Band, will be of interest to local readers: Overture La Carnival Bomaln Berllsz Fantasle be I'rophcte Meyerbeer Serenade (Keed Instrument only) Olllet Trombone Bolo Innes STEEL DTG0T BURSTS, Peculiar accident U the Edgar Thomson Steel Works nt Brnddock, CSFSCIAI.

While the pull-around men were engaged in loading the molds into the truck cars an ingot that had just been poured burst inside the mold. The molten steel flew in all directions, and Hugh McGinty was severely burned about the arms and legs and severely cut in several places. Thomas Eotherhoff, aged 18, was the worst injured. His clothing was almost stripped from his body, and he was badly burned. His face is fearfully scarred, and it is feared he will lose tbe sight of both his eyes. ITAT.TATT COUNTEEFEITEES.

Placio Voltachio and Mnnziata de Lucia, well-dressed Ital ians who recently arrived here and seemed to be well fixed financially, were before United States Commissioner Shields to-day, charged with attempting to pass a counter feit 10 lire bill, Italian money. Revenue Agent Brooks found them loaded with counterfeit Italian notes 100 lire, 62 ten lire and 65-lire notes being found in their possession. They had beside over (200 in good American and French money. Commissioner Shields committed them to jail for examination in default of $3,000 each.

Creditors ot tbe Bankrupt Firm of Jay Cooke ib Co. Realizing Fall Amounts. Philadelphia, June 21. About $150, 000 has been realized by the recent sale of real estate, stocks, etc, belonging to the bankrupt firm of Jay Cooke & Co., and Trustee Harding estimates that after paying all costs there will be enough to pay the creditors a dividend of $ per cent, making the total dividend about 15 per cent cash. Some of tne creditors of the Jay Cooke & Co., who held on to the seruruies which tbey received alter the failure, have realized over 100 per cent on their claims. ah ahohymous ietteb Mr. Frank E. Saddler, of this city, would teem to have been studying mus'cal theory at Munich to some purpose, ludingfrom a recent achievement in the shape of a really remark able piece of counterpoint. In a recent letter borne be describes it as follows: -It is two parts for violins, written on the violin clefs. Wben these two pans are turned upside down and played backwards, with the base rlef and viola or alto clef, tbev move smoothly and chord with the to parts when played forward with violin clefs. "These two parts are written at right angles crossing each other, and when played forward .nd backward by two violins, viola and 'cello, constitute a quartet. I "This is tbe only example of its kind in exist ence. Mozart wrote a conple of duets for two violins this way and Haydn also. But no per son ever put a quartet together In this shape before." " It is now in order for some contrapuntal sharp to step np and inform us that every mu slclal student at Cambridge orKamscatka has to write a patent reversible double-back-action Quartet before he can get his bachelor's degree. But, honestly now, has anyone ever done it before our Pittsburg boy? 9 .. Another nativa of our town has been doing oiniseu ana us proud in foreign parts. Mr. Etbelbert Kevin's rapid rise into prominence amid the hot musical competition of Boston hs been something exceptional. As pianist and as teacber (and H lor a 45 .in,Vt.e.essSn be,at8 P'"sbnrg rates by a long chalk) Mr. Kevin's services have been iu ever Increasing demand, so much so as to make tbe work test the limits of his strength But it is as a composer that Mr.N'evro's success lias been most remarkable. The songs which nave thus far formed the bulk of his published works have had a vogue that is simply extra ordinary. For instance, the exquisite settlntr of "Oh, That We Two Were Maying 'has reached such a point of rjonnistrit, , ii., that at a recent concert the accompanist, hav ing begun the prelude to it, was interrupted by an outburst of applause such as a Pittsburg audience. gives on recognizing the-Sunanee Indeed.
