I i i " THE MUSIC WORLD, A Complete Programme for tbe Series of Seven Concerts of the Great May Festival. WILL BE AN IMPORTANT EVENT. As Near the Highest Ideal as Can Attained Without a Perma nent Association. catholicity is apparent in the selections made which are, moreover, arranged with a judicious care lor both contrast and propriety; that the whole series is by no means nnworthy of the name of "Festival" and comes as close to tho highest ideals as could well he done in the absence of a permanent Festival Association, with an experienced chorus and much longer time for rehearsals: and, finally, to express tbe conviction that the May Music Festival of 1S9L, as now planned, will be an occasion of great delight and benefit to thousands of peo ple, an event second in magnitude to none yet recorded in local musical annals.

One calendar month from to-day this sec tion of country will have its attention cen tered upon music. To furnish such an ob ject lesson upon tbe importance of this art, constituting in itself n great human inter est, is one of the valuable incidents to such a May Music Festival as will on that date be inaugurated in Pittsburg thanks to the energy and enterprise of Mr. Carl Better and the host of society women who are warmly seconding bis efforts. Every intending auditor will find much to interest him or her in the fol lowing series of complete programmes for the big event, now first published: Tnesday E enins, May 12. 1.

TheBernbard Ustemann Club, of Boston, under the management of Air. Joseph H. Eg I G'ttings. gave two very interesting concerts at me x-ennsyivania college lor Women, in me East End, on Monday last. Mr. Gittingshad generously relinquished his prior claim on Old City Hall for that particular day, in favor of the Grand Armv celebration, which bad a prior general claim on that historic spot. So the concert went out to the East End, and a fair bevy of ardently appreciative school girls chiefly constituted the audience. The per formance that of the evening, at least was worthy of a larger number of listeners. It is much to be regretted that the parts of Beethoven's great C minor Quartet, Op. 18. could not be round, although the substituted number, tbe well-known andante cantabile by Tsclmkowsky, was in its own way vory beauti fnl and admirably performed. In the baltarello im urieg's u minor quartet, lue Italian dance form seems to have been trans planted to tbe 'orth and filled with the wild, grotesque spirit of a Muscovite carnival. Mr. Listemann and his associates brought out finely all this riotous abandon, as well as the passages of more reposeful senti ment occurring here and there. This string quartette aid better ensemble playing, on the whole, than any heard here in late years. There was a just balance of tone and a smooth ness and finesse in phrasing that are not at all common among the travelinc clubs. Mr. Ru dolph Iiissland, second violin, and Mr. Fritz Listemanu, viola, deserve their full share of credit for this. Mendelssohn's cheery, brilliant and beautiful Trio (in D minor; Op.49), for violin, violoncello and pianoforte, formed tbe literal center of gravity of the programme. And it was very creaitauiy played. The rich, glowing allegro, tbe innffably lovely andante, tbe scherzo in its unaffected gayety and archness, so char acteristic of the composer, and the exceedingly brilliant finale tbe contents of each movement were frougbt out by Messrs. Bernbard Listemann, Fritz Giese and Glttings with a fidelity and effectiveness that were really surprising in view of the limited rehearsals had. Mr. Git tings alwajs shines in ensemble work and in this trio, which demands as much technique from the pianist as a concerto, he fairly outdid himself. It was a mistake, however, to raise tbe lid of tbe pianoforte; in so small a hall it naturally overpowers the strings, Mr. Listemann chose for his solo number Vieuxtemps' Fifth Concerto. It was good to hear the veteran violinist, whom we all re member so well as Theodora Thomas' concert master in years gone by, and who is now con ductor of tbe Philharmonic Orchestra in Bos ton. The effect of years could be seen in a certain nervous abruptness of bowing, but bis playing was, nevertheless, full of vitality and artistic significance, and technically clean and brilliant. Mr. Giese's extraordi nary mastery of tho violoncello, his rarely Diianc ana sensuous tone, too certainty anu ease of bis execution, as well as his finely fin ished phrasing have several times heretofore aroused Pittsburg audiences to enthusiasm. The same qualities were fully displayed on this occasion, both In Servias' too familiar f antasie, '"Le Desir," and in tbe dainty, characteristic "moment musicale"by Schubert (Op. W, No. 3), which be gave as an encore-piece. Mr. Franz Gucquoy, tbe flautist, who was here in tbe fall with the miscalled "Boston Symphony Orches tral Club" (deceased), played tbe same piece one of his own writine that he then played, and with the same well-nigh phenomenal exe cution and goodly taste. Miss May Beesley was the vocalist of tbe evening. Whether it was the clear, starry evening, or the cozy hall, or the many girlish faces encouragingly upturned, or what not Miss Beesley certainly sane last Monday in a manner that vastly excelled any of her previous singing within the present writer's bearing.

Spice is lacking this morning for comments upon the foregoing programmes, further than to say that tbey are altogether exceedingly 4rilliaut and attractive; that a wide and wise disappeared, giving way to a reposeful mastery of her resources, which enabled her to provo beyond a doubt, what could hitherto bo only suspected, that Pittsburg possesses in her a coloratur singer such as we have never yet had living am ng us. Miss Beesley's voice is of ex ceptional range, full, powerful and flexible, if not of the most sympathetic quality in all registers. Her vocalization on Monday even ing was facile and brilliant to a degree; tbe many delicate meanctt abounding in the Italian style were most gracefully done. Her two programme numbers Meyerbeer's oft-heard "Shaaow Song" and Volkmann's unique composition. "Die Bekehrte," were, more over, invested with all the artistic taste and significance they demand. Although E. A. Macdow ell's rich, passionate love sonir (.Vn. 2 of the set of six) showed .certain limitations in tbe line of true Htdtr singing, it means much to express the hope that the larger public rnav have frequent opportunities of beanog Miss Beesley Sing just as she did on this particular evening. Crotchets and Quavers. Noting the successful performance of Mr. Ad M. Foerster's "Thusnelda" at Carl Venth's thirteenth orchestral concert, in Brooklyn, the New York Times says: "Mr. Foerster's sym phonic poem is gravely and sympathetically luougut our." The reverberations of the fall of German Opera in New York continue to be heard in tbe tributes being paid to those who have been its leading workers. Manager Stanton's benefit at the Metropolitan last Thursday evening brought great orations to the beneficiary as well as to Conductor Seidl and the performers, including Mlelke, Fischer, Reichmann, Rum mel and Dlppel, all of whom Pittsburg will soon hear. Mr. F. X. Arens announced for last Monday at Berlin an American composers' concert, under tbe auspices of Minister Phelps, present ing orchestral works of Chadwick, Foote. Beck, Shelly, Kelly, Boise, Von der Stucken, Arens and one or two others. Mr. Arens will repeat me concert tnis ween in uresaen, ana later, probably, in Leiozlg and London also. At this rate Europe will soon learn that America has other musical products to export besides half fledged sopranos. Mb. H. E. Keehbiel, of the New York Tnoune, will glye two lectures before tho Art Society here on Monday and Tuesday evenings, the 27th and 23th insr. The topics are: "Nature and Origin of tne Lvric Drama" and "Richard Wagner and His Art Work." Tho former lecture will be Illustrated by characteristic excerpts from the works dis cussed to bo sung by a soprano and a tenor; the latter will be aided bv pianoforte illustra tions. Though quasi-private, these lectures win De nrimo events oi tne ciosinir finasnn. ir Krehbiel enjoys an international reputation as America's foremost musical critic and essavist; his lectures in New York and Boston are always crowded and greatly appreciated. The magnitude of tbe May Festival must not bo allowed in any way to overshadow the concerts to be given by the Mozart Club, with tto Boston Symphony Orchestra, April 30 and May 1, which are events of the very first artis tic importance and of considerable magnitude, tbo. The first programme will be devoted to the supcrD orchestra, with a pair of vocal solos. Verdi's Requiem, with some appropriate or chestral preface, will fill the second evoniug. The soloists, whose names are now first an nounced, will be Mrs. Arthur Nlkisch, Mrs. UenevraJohnstone-Bishop, Miss Lena Little, Mr. Paul Zimmerman and Dr. Carl Martin a tine list indeed. With the best orchestra in the country and one of the best choruses these concerts will certainly equal, if not surpass, any iifcucis u oc uearu in mis region. ANDERSON On Friday.
