Operatic Favorite Opens Philhar

Newcomer to Los Angeles Audi
ences Shares Triumph
with Great Tenor
Florence Bosard Lawrence
Scotti and do Pasquall opened the
Phllharmonlo course concorts last
night In Simpson auditorium. These
two singers, heard here for the llrst
time in concert, attracted an audience
winch crowded every inch of available
I pace and proved a constant and gen
uine delight to every listener. Scotti,
already a favorite from hia operatic
appearances, coniined hia ilnglng en
tirely to famous arias, and from the
familiar find popular Prologue from
Pagllacoi to the classics from Mozart
the singer received plaudits of a most
enthusiastic character.
It is not always the greatest voice

Blgnor Bcottl utilizes an exquisite art
and a masterly reading of every song
to enhance hy many degrees tlie pow

its many beautiful tones, Is guided by

lie tang, besides the Leoncavallo
number, tin: I'uvatine from Fau.st, two
Mozart selections, and with Madame
de Pnsquuli a duet from Giovanni,
and one from the Barber of Seville.
In these latter numbers the still of
the composers found able expostiion
In the artistry of the singers.
After the "Fin C'han del vino," by
Mozart, the singer gave tho song from
FalstaS, beginning "When I was a
page," and this humorous gem gave
.such delight that It was repeated three
times before the demands of the au
dience, charmed with the art and
laughing at the comedy of song and
singer, could be satisfied.
Madame Bernlce de Pasquall Is a
newcomer to Los Angeles audionces
and opened her concert with tho fa
mous Polonaise from Mignon. This, a
favorite with coloratura singers,
vealed a good range, but with neither
the limpidity nor the brilliancy which
N (.. ho desired in its rendition. It
is refreshing, however, to find a singer
who leaves, apparently of her own vo
lition, the limited field of colorature
work for the more expressive aongs,
and in her group of three numbers
hy Tolsti, Brahms and Dell Acqua,
Madame Pasquall displayed a spirit
and thoughtfulness which is more de
lightful to the ear than many etacatto
trills and glissandos of the operatic
coloratura Hinder.
In the duets Madame Pasquall shared
equally with Scotti In presenting these
musical miniatures, each one a gem of
composition and harmonic effective
ness singing them with admirable
simplicity of manner and great beauty
of method.
Encores followed every appearance
of tbp.se artists, and tho evening was
a brilliant success and a most auspi
cious augury of many delightful mu
sical events which will follow this

women are fighting a winning battle
