Karlton Hackett in the Chicago Evening Post—Was there ever a man who could draw such tone from a 'cello as Pablo Casals, the Spaniard? It Is not merely the exquisite quality of the tone, with its almost Infinite variety of colors, but the spirit back of it that animates his every phrase. Olin Downes in the Boston Post— One hardly realised the technical mas tery achieved for the Interpretation was well night Ideal and the 'art of the interpreter concealed the techni cal mastery of the virtuoso. Richard Aldrich in the New York Times—Mr. Casals' playing aroused profound admiration. Eve/y phrase had its turn of perfection, Its sublety of romance and the most elaborate passages were as impeccably correct in Intonation as they were unostenta tious in execution. It was a memorable performance. Pitts Sanborn In the New York Globe—What is the Impression from the performance last night?
