THDEL BURNHAM CON ING TO VALLEY CITY NEXT THURSDAY MOST-TALKED-OF PIANIST IN PARIS BEFORE THE WAR TO APPPEAR AT NORMAL. He is an artist of powers.—London Era. of remarkable He added another great success to his already glorious career.—Gil Bias, Paris, There are few pianists like him in the world today.—Artists' Ga zetteer, New York. Such is the trend of the universal comment given Thuel Burnham, the remarkable young American pianist, who is to appear in the Normal school auditorium a week from next Thurs day evening. Mr. Burnham appears here in response to the third attempt to engage him for an artists' course number, not so much for a piano pro gram, as for the man himself, though he is assurance enough of all that could be desired of a pianist. Although Mr. Burnham went to Eu rope fourteen years ago and until re cently has since then made his home there, he is every bit American. He began playing the piano before he could read or write improvised and played from ear many things that he heard his mother—who was a very ac complished pianist—play. He began his public appearances while still a child and during his boy hood was known all over the United States as a child prodigy of great bril liancy and promise sive concert tours in recital and was soloist at the Metropolitan Sunday night concerts and other big concerts. During this period he was an assi duous and faithful pupil of Wm. Ma son, of New York, in piano, and of E. M. Bowman in theory. He then went to Europe, where he made a brilliant and successful con cert tour of England, becoming a great favorite in London, where there were extraordinary demonstrations of en thusiasm and popular favor at his con certs. At this juncture of his notable ca reer he went to the great Leschetizky in Vienna and three years' hard work. At the end of this period, with his art ripened, his technic polished and per fected, his readings and artistic per ceptions trained and developed, Burn ham made a reappearance—a mature artist of great powers. His success was instantaneous and remarkable throughout the different capitals of Europe where he appeared. .He :?.s keen sal!? the "most talked 1 -pianist in Paris," where he has a tremendous following and his success has been sensational.
