Mrs. Flournoy’s Musicale.
. . : « .
Mrs. R. W. Flournoy’s musical and re
ception at the Hotel Worth last Tuesday
afternoon in honor of her sister, Mrs.
Elizabeth Fontaine Harris, was one of
the most elegant functions of the season.
Mrs. Harris has recently returned from
Germany,where she pursued her musical
studies in the studio of the eminent
Professor Barth, court pianist to the
emperor of Germany. The large ball was
reserysd for the music, and was throng
ed with a brilliaut assemblage of guests.
Tbe programme was divided between
Mrs. Harris, pianist, and the Misses Ed
dington and Samuels, vocalists.
Mrs. Harris is a finished artist, and
her performance was a revelation of
biiliant technique, delicate phrasing and
exquisite play of light and shade. The
carefully chosen programme was rarely
beautiful. Tbe opening number, Men
delssohn’s charining*and difficult “Pre.
luda, Op. 104,” was rendered in a mas
terly style. The netx. Beethoven’s noble
“Sonata,” was chief d’euvre of the after
noon, and was beautifully and sympa
theticslly interpreted. Tbe dramatic
quality of the first movment, the melody
of the second, so suggestive of a rich
toned organ, were admirably expressed.
The perfect tempo of the third, or alleg
retto, movement was particularly no
ticeable as tbe usual tendency of musi
cians is to greatly accelerate the tempo
of this movement. Following this cams
Miss Edrington’s little chanson “Love,”
which was beautifully sung with her
usual charm and vivacity and was re
ceived with the greatest appreciation.
Sbs was accompanied on the piano by
Mrs. unve .'Scott rmringion. i ne next
two numbers fell to Miss Samuels, J'hey
were “Recitative and Air,” from Liza
Lehman’s beautiful song cycle, ‘‘In a
Persian Garden,” and “Roberto 0 Tu
Che Adoro,” by Myerbeer. Miss Sam
aria has a fine soprano voice of wide
range and compass, with a decided
grand opera quality. She sings with
mncli expression, and her numbers were
heartily applauded. Miss Samuel’s ac
companiment* were played by Mrs. A. G
Dawson. Mrs, Harris then played Schu
man’s “Nachtstuerk,” Orth’s “Caprice.”
Chopin's lovely “Preludes No: 20 and 7”
and “Yalae. A flat”—all riDpling waves
of melodr—concluding with Vogricli’e
dashing “Staccatto Caprice.” Mrs.
Harris was amply equal to the demauds
of sach a varied programme. Her ren
dition of Chopin's exquisite “Preludes”
was particularly felicitous, the little
'Caprice was played in a tempo that
fairly took one’s breath. Her auditors
were most sympathetic and apprecia
tive throughout the entire recital and
every number was received with gener
