Earl Hines is responsible for a

provides his listeners with plenty
of that brand of piano for which
he is famous. One side is an orig

Blues.”

Bluebird introduces a male
quartet called “The Deep River
Boys,” which is likely to give the
*“lnk Spots” no little competition.
They are accompanied by excep
tional plano playing a little in the
Teddy Wilson line and display their
wversatility by combining two wide
ly different numbers. The “A”
side is titled “T Was a Fool To Let
You Go.” The opposite face will
bring to mind the old vaudeville
days when a male quartet whs
ushered in on about the third act.
The title, “The Bullfrog and the
Toad” should be enough to say
. about it. This disc is a bit off the
beaten track and is interesting

'Good Fellowship Inspired; Scolding |
Wife Stifled Genius |
By J. W. BIXEL
Great composers have each had
their own ways of writing. Some
of them chose peculiar surround
ings for the
birth of their
masterpieces,
and while the
choice may
seem odd to us,
such surround
ings were very
commonly chos
en by the music
and literary
people of past
days.
The tavern
an? wine room
are not now regarded as productive
of great ideas, but much of our
greatest music had its beginning
llnchnu-. Beethoven often
was seen to jot down in the tavern
or coffee room some musical idea
that occurred to him, but not so
much of his music was inspired
there. Beethoven did much of his
composition while walking in the
country lanes and fields. There is
a large gnarled oak tree near Vi
enng (or was when I was there
last) in which he frequently sat
composing, utterly oblivious to his
surroundings.
| Many another musician has
~ climbed to that seat, but to
1 whom has come the inspiration
of a Third or Fifth or Ninth
symphony, or & Missi Solem
mis?
Mozart loved wine and goodfel
lowship. We read of opera manag
ers driven to desperation because he
‘'would linger too long in the wine
room or ai the billiard table when
he had promised them an overture,
but put off the writing until “to
‘morrow.” But the overture was
sure to be forthcoming at the last
moment, for was it not all com-‘
pleted in his head, and had it not
been for many weeks? It was the
manual labor of writing that he |
shirked.
)& e }
Schubert lingered much at the
tavern. Well, perhaps it was more
cheerful than his home. No clnt-i
ter of dishes, no chatter of busy
tongues could stay the flow of his
‘beautiful melodies. “The fountain
‘mut flow even though the world
‘thouht nought of the source of
‘the stream.” Many of his songs
went to the publisher for as little
as 20 conts sach.
4. W. Bixel
The circumstances under which
many of his songs were written
‘admirabl, illustrates the sponta
niety of Schubert's genius. One
afternoon, when he was sitting with
some friends in the garden of a
tavern near Vienna, he saw a vol
um~ of Shakespeare on the table.
He took the book and casually
turned the pages until he came to
“Hark, hark, the lark,” in Cymbe
line. After looking at it a few
moments, he exclaimed, “A lovely
melody has come into my head—if
I only had some music paper!”
One of his friends drew some
staves on the back of a bill of fare
and Schubert, undisturbed by the
noise d confusion, jotted down
his delightful song.
- - -
Haydn would shut himself up in
his sixth-story garret and pen the
symphonies which paved the way
for Mozart and Beethoven. So
absorbed in his work would he
become that he did not notice the
absence of food or fuel. The joy |
of composition produced oblivion
to all such minor matters. ‘

planist, Joe Sullivan; Benny Good

Hall on the clarinet. The sides are
old favorites “Ninah” and
“Swingin' the Blues."”

Orrin Tucker is still capitalizing
on his vocal find—Bonnie Baker.
This week Columbia records and
Monsieur “O. T.” give out “Wee"
Bonnie in a new tune, “Not Yet."
Tucker himself sings the other
gide—"Where Do I Go From
You."

Artie Shaw's Victor recording of
“My Fantasy" introduces Pauline
Byrne to the wax business. The
tune, incidentally is an adaptation
of Borodin's ballet suite, “Prince
Igor.” Shaw's new music creates
great comment, but it is a little too
new to do any predicting as to its
future.

New Record Has Schubert's
Fifth Symphony
Lovers of recorded music—and
of Schubert at his best—will be
interested in the first American
recording of -the Seventh Sym
phony in C major, which features
Columbia's May list.
The recording of the complete
work is by the Chicago Symphony
orchestra under Dr. Frederick
Stock. It is in 11 parts on six 12-
inch records.
The symphony, which was Schu
bert’s last work and was com
pleted less than a year before his
death at the age of 31, is re
garded as his greatest work, and
as indicative of what his expand
ding artistry might have given
the world were it not for his un
th.;y death.
Chicago Symphony, which is
celebrating its golden anniversary
Dext season, gives a beautifully
smooth reading under the direc
tion of Dr. Stock. The lyric
passages, especially the andante,
@re played with understanding
and calm besuty, and noticeably
avold overstatement or sugaring.

His scolding wife may have
| had something to do with Hay
| dn's isolation. While hunger
‘ and music are not incompat
ible, we find no instances
where the muse has been in
spired to lofty heights by a
scolding wife.

Rossini was another “jolly good
fellow” who could compose divine
ly at the tavern. He also was
n« tcd for his laziness . . . Mendels
sohn was well balanced; he had
few idiosyncrasies or peculiarities.
He was scholarly and refined. Like
Mozart and some others, he com
posed in his head. . . . Wagner was
a genids and in some ways a queer
one. When he composed he re
quired absolute quiet and free
dom from disturbance. A pecu
liarity was that he could compose
better if dressed in the period of
the opera on which he was work
ing.
