The chief topic in music circles just now is the coming of the Damrosch Opera company next week, and all lo cal efforts are held in reserve till that is over with. The opera will be in every respect a realization of the pub lic anticipation, and will be given in first-class manner. The entire com pany will be brought on and nothing will be lacking to make it a splen did success. In music circles the ope ra is the leading topic and there is an I increasing interest in it all the time. I A well-known musician, Charles A. Fisher, in chatting of it in an inter view yesterday, said, in reply to the question: "What do you think of the selection of operas to be given by the Damrosch company?" "All who are interested in the high est class of operatic music must, I think, be of the opinion that the choice speaks well for the taste and wisdom of Mr. Walter Damrosch. We are to have 'Tannhauser' with its knightly, story, the romantic legend of .'Lohen ' grin,' the 'Meistersinger' (the great est of all comic operas), the ecstatic pre-medieval love tale of 'Tristan and Isolde' _.nd finally 'Siegfried' and 'Die Walkure,' as representing the great Teutonic epic of the 'Nibelun gen.' Certainly a more interesting and instructive Wagner programme ! could scarcely be imagined. . "It is fortunate for us to have two cities of the importance of St. Paul and Minneapolis located in such close proximity to each other, or we could hardly have hoped to be so favored." "What about the opera 'Fidelio?' " " 'Fidelio' as the only opera of the greatest of all musicians is an eminent ly proper selection and will draw the real music lovers and cultivated am ateurs." "Why do you suppose 'Siegfried' and 'Die Walkure' were chosen from among the four plays constituting the 'Nibel ungen Ring?' " "Here again the choice is highly practicable and proper. The 'Rhein gold' would not be of sufficient inter est to a general audience for the most part unacquainted with the intricacies of Wagner's great Trilogy, and the last part, 'Die Gotterdammerung,' is i a sort of finale to the entire work, be | sides presenting various difficulties i hard to overcome in a traveling organ AN AMERICAN GIRL WHO HAS ACHIEVED FAME .ON TWO CONTINENTS. Patti may make her final farewell ; tour as soon as she pleases. America ! has its own native silvery singer and J will have the joyous privilege in the future of paying $6 to home talent for | a parquette seat. Miss Ellen Beach | Yaw is the name of the new soprano I wonder. Her childhood home was in I California. She is now in Paris for the better training and polishing of her voice, by Delle Sedie and Bax. Miss Yaw's voice has the 7 widest range of any soprano of whom history has pre served a record. Mozart noted a vocal phenomenon in Lucrezia Ajugari.whom he heard in 1770 sing from A below middle C to C above high C, covering twenty-four notes. The California singer begins at G below the staff and stops at E in the altissimo — a range of I singer four octaves, three the staff and stops at E in the altissimo — a range of nearly four octaves, three notes higher than Ajugari's. F sharp, which was the gifted Nilsson's ultimate tone, is ization. Where only two of the four 'Nibelungen' dramas can be given the selection as announced by the manage ment in this case is certainly the best that could be made." "What do you think of the prices of admission T'y ,| --"The highest price for a single seat is, I believe, $4, only $1 more than the. cost of first-class seats. at the Metropolitan opera house, New York. That is cer tainly reasonable* enough when one con siders the enormous cost of bringing out to the Northwest such an aggrega tion of singers and orchestral musicians as this company promises. We must also not forget-that the New York opera house seats twice 'as many-people as any house in the Twin Cities." "But the management ought to make a good thing out "or it, ought they not?" "It is very doubtful whether they will make 'a good thing" out of it, even with j good houses in both cities. But Mr. Damrosch is doubtless a very ambitious man, with weaflthy men behind him, who j seem *to places-great confidence in his skill and judgment. Naturally, he would want to show off his fine organi zation in this section of the West, and if it doesn't pay— well the financial powers behind _ijje throne can probably stand the .expense, or may be will ing to meet with- - temporary loss, eith er for the advancement of art or in the hope that financial profit will come In the' future of German opera in this country.*' ■'■"»"-**> .■*-■' ••" -'••" ,; •'' *\ : ' "It is reported that Mr. Damrosch will deliver several lectures on the Wag ner operas here.

Preparation and study are absolutely necessary for the proper appreciation of any great work of art and the great operas to be presented by this company are of a kind that renders it almost impossible to glean any information from a libretto while the performance is going on. • .V --"The old cry of 'Books for the opera — opera books' — is not in place here. ; "No doubt a great many of those who have decided to attend the operas will take advantage of the explanatory lit erature, which is always to be found at our music stores. Perhaps, also, some of our teachers will explain to their sev eral coteries of adherents the beauties and the mysteries of the great epoch making conceptions of Richard Wag ner." ■ ■■ ■ . ; ■ -..-■<■ Local Notes. Opening with Brand's stirring Enquirer Club march, with its German martial rhythm, and closing with excerpts from Verdi's beau tiful opera, "Traviata," the fourth Seibert sustained by Miss Yaw without appar ent effort, and she can sound the sixth I note higher, which is also an altitude of five notes higher than Patti dare at tempt. Miss Yaw has not yet given her voice to the "public, but will make her debut soon. Her repertory em braces the works of English, French, Italian and Swedish composers. Of Grieg's ballads she' is particularly fond. Foreign musicians and critics who have heard her. predict such a career for her as has never been known. Of her personal' appearance and charac teristics one writer says: ■ "She is tall and beautiful, with a wealth of blonde hair, dreamy eyes and features of the finest delicacy. Her throat is as- graceful as a swan's, her poise and mannenare elegant. She re minds one of Jenny Lind, in that af fectation and artifices have no place in her expression." .Y'vY YY V concert, which will be given this afternoon at Conover hall, bids fair to be even more popular in its character than any of its pre decessors. There will be eight numbers given, among them being Adams' overture, "Queen for a Day," which will be given for the first time in this city. The orchestra will play from the manuscript copy of the composer, who was formerly the 'celloist of Seibert's orchestra, Amato's "Re v erie et Valse lente." J. F. Merrill has consented tc* furnish a num ber on the programme, and has chosen the beautiful tenor aria from Mendelssohn's ora torio. "St. Paul," "Be Thou Faithful Unto Death." V* ' A double number, consisting of selections by Stahl and Giilet, will be given with obli gate on the violin by Prof. Muehlenbruch. Director Seibert has avoided the appearance of an entirely symphonic programme in the selection of his numbers, and If the increased number of ticket holders is any criterion, his efforts to hit the public fancy have been quite successful. The programme is as follows: 1. March— "The Enquirer Club" Brand 2. — "Queen for a Day" Adam (First time.) 3.

Among these churches are the cathedral, St. Mary's, St. Luke's, St. Paul's, Christ church, St. Peter Claver's and others. Owing to the prevalence of typhoid fever in Duluth, a splendid music programme which had been prepared for this week has been de clared off. In this programme Miss Harriett Hale, of this city, was to have taken an act ive part. r,';:. The Christmas service at the House of Hope church, which was to have been ren dered this morning, has been postponed, ow ing to the illness of Mrs. Colville.

Anent the German opera season in Chicago, Harper's Weekly said recently: "Triumphant Wagnerism may now be fairly said to have added Chicago to its permanent conquests. The series of Wagnerian performances given there last week and this by Mr. Damrosch, have been, on the whole, the most worthy, and adequate that the Chicago public has known, and have proved a great popular suc cess. It has taken twenty years to make the Chicago public accept Wagner without re serve, but the work is done, thanks to the efforts of Messrs. Thomas, Seidl and Dam rosch." The bill which is to be presented to con gress regulating the pay of government musi cians provides for a director of music, who shall receive the the pay and emoluments of a first lieutenant of marines: an assistant, who shall receive $75 per month; a band ser geant at $70; two corporals at $65 per month, limiting the rank and file membership to sixty-five, thirty of whom, as first- class, shall be paid $60 per month, and thirty-five, as sec ond class, who shall receive $50 per month. A well-known banjo player of Richmond, Va., says a correspondent of the Herald, sent his nickel-plated banjo to Paderewski when the latter was dining with some friends very recently, and asked him to write on the sheepskin a short musical sentiment. This is what Paderewski wrote and signed: "I have not the pleasure of being a per former on this beautiful instrument; am only a piano player." Mme. Vanderveer-Green, another American singer who has obtained established recogni tion abroad and who has been heard mainly in the concert room in England and Austria, was allowed a first Chicago appearance last week. The impression which she. created was distinctly favorable. Her .Mage presence is commanding and dignified. In features she is strikingly handsome and of a. type that is Southern. v • Mmc Emma Nevada is singing this winter with great success in Philadelphia, where a season of forty nights and. ten matinees of grand opera is to be given by a company un der the direction of Mr. Gustav Hinrichs. The Princess of Wales has distributed a few copies of some lieder which she composed for her favorite instrument, the zither. The very thought will cause every musician to "zither." Mmc Sigrid Arnoldson. the "Swedish Night ingale," who made her first appearance at the Royal Grand theater in Munich last week in the title role of "Mignon," met 'with an enthusiastic reception. The music-loving pub lic of the Athens of the Isar gave her an ovation, such as had not been seen since the days of Patti, and for the nonce all Wagner ism seemed to be forgotten. The Hedmont season of Wagner in English at Covent garden, London, was a flnandtS railure. The press was most generous in sup porting it. Pictures of the singers and inter views with them performed their share to make the venture assume importance, but it was fruitless. .««*.« is4 rr a ; ngenl lt . s for the Bayreuth festival of 1896 1 are said to now be well advanced, and, • as has already been made known, next year's representations re to be devoted entirely to The Mbelung Ring," which will be revived __a?e I,?.? ° n thiS ° CCasion for the fl «-st time v| K thh^ a - d a^t^- h is "Vol S^eSp^l " AYe Maria " S — -*•■ : STILLWATER NEWS.
