AT THE PINNEY.
Pablo Casals, the world's greatest
'cellist, appears In concept at the Pln
ney tonight, and makes his debut be
fore a Boise audience. Casals needs no'
introduction. Ho is premier of «11 'cel
lq artists. Wherever he has appeared
he has been tendered an ovation. Of
him Toscha Seidel, the young Russian
violin , virtuoso said: "There Is only
one Pablo Casals. ' After all the great
est instrument is the 'cello."
That Boise music lovers may
know the treat In store for them to
night, the following excerpts are taken
from critics on Casals' playing:.
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
Pitts Sanborn In the New York
Globe—What is the Impression from
the performance last night? For one
thing a technical mastery that made
his execution seem child's play. For
another, a degree, of finish, I have
never heard equalled by a 'cellist.
