mmm m. m. - a r - j ureatesr r wiinisi ever near a Here" Verdict n Jacobson By KM MA U FETTA. - HE greatest violinist Rich mond has ever beard, played in the Coliseum Tuesday evening, and played so per fectly, with such unaffected skill and artistry, that the audience sat rapt through out a charmingly varied pro gram. Sascha Jacobsen Is a genius, and more than that he has all the pathos, tenderness, and deep feeling of north ern Europe blended with the alertness and spirit of the United States, which he calls his real training ground. His recital last evening was all that any critical audience could want in finished technique, and remarkable interpreta tion. Trills, runs, arpeggios, and solid bow swing tones, perfect whether at point or frogg came as unfalteringly and graciously as the passage of electric current through wires. In his first number, "Symphonic Espergual" solo by beautiful and difficult composition, Jacobsen displayed his tremendous ability to handle seconds, triplets, sevenths, high positioned runs, and. numerous other technical qualities. The number was In three movements: Allegro non trappo, .Andante, and Rondo. Captured Audience. This was wisely selected by the art ist as his opening, for in it he had all the possibilities of a, dozen smaller manuscripts, and through It, im mediately received the complete atten tion of his auditors. Such sustained rilence and concentrated attention has not often been observed here. Jacobsen blasted any theory that only difficultly written pieces can be greatly presented, for in Beethoven's "Minuet" which he played as an en core; In Drdla's . "Souvenir," and Drigo-Aurer's "Serenade" he particu larly displayed the effect of feeling and artistio tone pressure. He made mas terful these numbers, which have often been ruined in incompetent hands. No deeper melodious effect was given In the entire concert, however, than in Victor Herbert's charming "Serenade". Harmonic runs in "Zephyr", by Hu- bay, were another fine exhibition of the versatility of the artist. These harmonic tones, played high on the E string and occasionally running back to the lower strings, were render ed without even a minute ragged blemish. ... In splendid attention and spirit with the violinist, was the accompaniest, Emile Balaban. also of New York City. Balaban . la the son of Russian parents, and appreciates all that is foremost In Jacobsen's nature. His work of last evening was particularly effective. ' Ray Weisbrc-d, local manager of Jacobsen's performance, is to be con gratulated upon the appearance of so great an artist. JOHNSON-HUBBARD SALE BRINGS $2,500 By WILLIAM R.
