Tho Renowned Virtuoso Will Ho Ilenrd nt tlio Auditorium To-night. Hugeno Ysaye. one of the most dis tinguished artists announced In Kansas City for many a clay, ai rived from his Pa cific coast tour last evening and registered at the Coatos. where he will have apart ments until after his concert at the Audi torium this evening. Although fresh from San Tranclscp, where distinguishing features are hills and cable lallways, the West bluffs and tho Incline from the I'nlon depot did not strike the great violinist favorably, and be instructed his manager to call a car riage, although he had previously expressed a preference for street cars. He was told that the park amendments had just car ried and that when he should make an other visit to Kansas City tho bluff would be a park and even the Incline would look more inviting. . . . Ysaye Is thoroughly musical In appear ance. He has the length of hair nnd the broad, high rorehead that were stl Iking characteristics of Rubinstein, Heethoven nnd others of the great masters. Ho does not speak Hngllsh, but gives his listeners the choice of Prench and German. He ex pressed himself ns delighted with his American tour. He came over to give forty concerts and hits alroadv given 101. He might have remained In the Hast al together, but wanted to see the great West, especially the Pacific coast, or which he had heard a great deal from fellow m lists. He finds the American people Intelligent nnd critical nnd always ap preciative of the best work, and while there Is a preference for melody which preference he indulged to a great extent our public knows when a classic number Is well given Mr. Ysaye Is not. like a good many other Huropean artists, sur mised at the musical Intelligence In this country, for he happens to have been well Informed before he crossed the Atlantic. Perhaps no other success pleased Ysnve more than that he met with In Sin Pran clsco, where he gave six concerts, never to less than $2,000, with seats selling nt $2.W) each lie was so delighted with the Tabernacle at Salt Lake Citv- that ho se cured plans of It and hopes to see nn nu dltoilum In his native land after the same Speaking of music nnd violinists last evening, Mr. Ysavo sild that the proverb ial tlllHeultv of the Raeh eh icone Is not so great after all; but that there wns surely no -violinist in Rich's time who could Inve pliyed his fugue from the sixth sonata for violin, and that the nnlv one who can plnv it now Is JoTchlm When asked whether lie did not play this pas sage, the Frenchman modestly admitted that It was on his programmes, hut that Joachim Is the onlv man who can play It. Tills was probably a forced expression fiom a modest man, for Ysajo Is ton great nn artist to put himself to a task ttint ho thinks beyond his powers. The pronunciation of tho distinguished visitor's name has puzzled a good many people. It may therefore be a satisfac tion to some to know that It should be nronounced H-zl-e, with all the vowels lene and tho accent on tho second sylla ble. Lost n Part of Ills Nose.
