INTRODUCTORY. 



Perhaps it may not be necessary to inform the readers of this 
volume that a perfect yearbook is an ideal dream of verdant expe- 
rience; but to forestall some possible criticism it is best to state 
this to be a fact. A yearbook has to be conceived and born, but 
that is easy enough; to coax it into growing is much harder, and 
to develop it into the full vigor and stature of youth and manhood 
requires patience such as has been exhibited by but a few in the 
world's history. 

It is supposed by many that the only difficulty lies in putting 
the material into proper shape; that of course conductors and 
societies are only too anxious to appear, and that a mere hint, and 
in the majority of cases not even that, would be sufficient to bring 
an avalanche of programs. Yes, indeed it might seem so, but it is 
not, and here comes in the first great trial. The second is like unto 
it — the programs appear without place or date; no effort has been 
made to keep a complete file, and one program of a series is miss- 
ing; names of works, authors and artists get badly tangled, and 
so on. 

But despite all these drawbacks the Ykarbook celebrates its 
tenth birthday in the present volume, and can boast of a healthy, 
in fact quite prodigious, growth in the past year, having nearly 
doubled its size, even were the World's Fair matter excluded. It 
may confidently claim to have also grown more perfect in its 
record along lines previbusly established, in the form of presenta- 
tion, and also in new departments, making it therefore of much 
greater value to all classes of musicians. 

If any important concerts in the larger cities have beeii 
omitted, we can disclaim any responsibility, since every effort has 
been made by direct and indirect correspondence to secure the 



VI THE MUSICAL YEAR BOOK 

material. As an instance may be cited the programs of the Cham- 
ber Concerts of such organizations as the Kneisel and Adamowski 
quartets, of Boston, the omission of which is a matter of regret 
because the greatly increased interest in Chamber Music does not 
appear. 

It will be noted that there is not only quite an increase in the 
actual number of cities recorded, but that full reports will be found 
of programs in nearly twice as many places as were registered in 
the last volume. This is important as showing the character of 
the programs in various sections of the country. 

A notable feature, which adds much valuable material of in- 
terest to many, is the record of recital programs of acknowledged 
artists. This will be found quite complete in at least two depart- 
ments, piano and organ, and will serve as a valuable reference 
table, preserving as it does- the most important and serviceable 
works in these two fields. 

The especial attention of organists is drawn to the programs 
of the sixty organ recitals given in Festival Hall, and the thor- 
oughly classified catalogue of all the works .given in the record by 
cities will furnish all classes of musicians with an invaluable refer- 
ence list. 

In looking over the record every one who has not had occasion 
or an opportunity to note the musical activity of the country will 
no doubt be surprised at the large number of orchestral concerts, 
and choral concerts in which the orchestral works furnish a large 
share of the programs. A large percentage of the 109 cities 
report either pure orchestral or mixed choral and orchestral con- 
certs, and many of the places are. not cities as regards size. 

It will also be a matter of surprise and gratification to note the 
choral activity which the record reveals. About twenty-five of the 
states, representing northern, southern, middle, western and east- 
ern groups and an average of more than four cities in each state, 
are contained in the record, and by far the larger number of towns 
and cities are supporting choral societies of good size, and giving 



OF THE UNITED STATES. vii 

one or more miscellaneous or orchesrral concerts. And here, too, 
it is the more encouraging when it is known how many of these 
towns are comparatively small, as for instance Bethlehem, Pa., 
Ann Arbor, Mich., Oberlin, O., etc. The outlook is still brighter, 
if we remember that a record of only a little more than four cities, 
on an average, in each of the twenty- five states furnish the data, 
for certainly this cannot represent all that is being done in choral 
music. Taking everything into consideration, there is therefore 
great reason for rejoicing over the musical growth of the country 
in the last decade. 

But, notwithstanding all this cause for congratulation it is too 
lamentably true that we are, as a nation, very much lacking in musi- 
cal appreciation or culture; and a prime cause for this is the piano, 
and lack of development of choral music. Three things stand in the 
way of the genuine and extensive development of choral music: 
(i) The piano, which is destructive, inasmuch as it sets up 
personal vanity and advancement in place of genuine musical 
development, either appreciative or conceptive. (2) The public 
schools, which fail, for reasons too obvious to need comment, to 
furnish that development of conceptive power which enables 
any one to become an efficient member of a chorus. (3) Ambi- 
tion to do a large thing, an oratorio for instance, instead of justly 
estimating both the ability of the chorus and capacity of the 
audience, and taking up the study of simple, pleasing works, 
which the chorus can master and give an intelligent and finished in- 
terpretation of and which can be understood by an average audience. 
This last cause is the most harmful in its effect alike upon choruses 
and audiences; and it is so senseless because there is so enormous a 
field of beautiful, simple, intelligible music from which to 
choose. There are but few places say of five thousand inhabitants, 
and over, which could not gather together from twenty-five to fifty 
voices for the giving of part songs. 

The main hope of the country does not lie in the alleged con- 
servatories springing up like mushrooms all over the land, where 



VIII THE MUSICAL YEAR BOOK 

piano thumping and keyboard gymnastics are developed accord- 
ing to the "most approved methods" and application of patent 
pianist-incubators, and vocalizers turned out with hand-organs in 
their throats, but minds, the musical emptiness of which is in inverse 
ratio to the agility with which they can turn- the crank; it lies in 
the development of sufficient power of music conception to enable 
a person to sing, independently of other singers or an instrument, 
his part in a choral composition. Perception of beautifully dem- 
onstrated problems cannot take the place of conceptive individual 
demonstration in the development of mathematical knowledge; and 
the same law applies in art. We need a choral renaissance, not 
merely from a musical standpoint, but because only thus can the 
many be brought under the highest moral and spiritual influence 
music is capable of exerting. 

Another important educational force is the spread of the study 
of stringed instruments and formation of local orchestras and 
quartets. We shall never be free from foreign influence until the 
genuine American orchestra and quartet shall have become com- 
mon, and good material so plenty as to render any foreign aid un- 
necessary to their formation. The marked increase in orchestral 
concerts is already bearing fruit in a new and ever-increasing 
interest in the study of the violin and kindred instruments, but 
the personnel of our orchestras indicates how much work remains 
to be done to prepare an American contingency large and intetti- 
gent enough to meet the emergencies. The trouble lies, as in the 
case of piano and vocal students, in the desire of every student 
of the violin to be a soloist, in place of setting musicianship as his 
goal. 

It is hoped that this little volume may, to some small degree at 
least, contribute to the furtherance of these most desirable objects.

THE BOSTON SEASON. 

BY PHIWP HAI,E. 

The season of 1892-93 in Boston was dull. There was no grand 
opera worthy of the name. There were few performances or ap- 
pearances in the concert halls that now haunt the memory, or 
even visit it occasionally. . 

The feature of the season was the first performance in Boston 
of Mr. Chad wick's ** Phoenix Expirans, " by the Handel and Haydn. 
It would be impertinent now to review the music, a glowing set- 
ting of a poem of mediaeval erotic mysticism, or the performance, 
although it may be said of the latter that, while the chorus did in 
the main creditable work, the solo singers often showed insuffi- 
cient preparation and rehearsal. 

The president of the Handel and Haydn Society regards — see 
his address of May 22 — the giving of ''The Messiah " twice in the 
Christmas season as an ** event of unusual importance." I cannot 
agree with him. The- popularity of Handel's oratorio warrants 
the repetition from a commercial standpoint. **The Messiah" 
is to many a fetich. Its performance is a religious function. 
But the substitution of another work, at least every other year, 
would make more 'for musical righteousness in chorus and 
audience. Nor can the attempt to make Bach's "Matthew Pas- 
sion Music" a yearly Easter offering, with choir boys. New Eug- 
landers trying to join in the chorals, and a more or less artificial 
sentiment lugged m by the heels, be looked upon with favor. Let 
us have an opportunity to hear music by Bach that is not always 
this Passion Music, not always a piano arrangement of an organ 
fugue with its prelude. 

Dvorak conducted his '* Requiem Mass " at a concert given by 
the Cecilia. There was naturally animal curiosity to see the man; 
but who today recalls the work or the performance. The Cecilia 
maintained its reputation, however, as an excellent body af singers. 
Its brother, the Apollo, gave concerts with programs after the 
usual fashion of male chorus concerts, and to the evident enjoy- 
ment of the subscribers. The first tenors are not now as strong as 
of old. Death and resignation took away valuable members. 



THE MUSICAL YEAR BOOK 



At the beginning of the season much was said about a new 
chorus that was to play the part of annex to the Boston Symphony 
Orchestra. Unfortunately performance gave the lie to promise. 
The chorus made two appearances, in the Ninth Symphony and 
in a bill that included Brahm's *'Song of Destiny" and Foote's 
"Skeleton in Armor." The chorus was weak and timid. It was 
disbanded at the end of the season. 

Mr. Arthur Nikisch resigned, in the spring, his position as 
conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. It would not now 
be profitable or pleasant to discus.** the cause of his resignation. 
The career of Mr. Nikisch in Boston shows again the abnormal 
position assumed to day in music by Individuality. During his 
stay, there was more discussion of the merits and the faults of the 
conductor than of the music performed under his direction. The 
question was too frequently asked, ""What does Nikisch think;" 
or, " How did Nikisch treat the composition? " As a conductor he 
was a man of emotional nature, and his emotion was dangerously 
near hysteria. Often in the performance of romantic works, he 
would sweep brilliantly everything before him; but in the reading 
of compositions of the so-called classical school, he was apt to in- 
clude the music in his sweeping. When the hearer listened to a 
symphony by Mozart or Beethqven, he was compelled to think 
more about the conductor than the composer. Nor is it to be 
denied that the orchestra, under his direction, lost in precision, 
elegance in the detail, and there was seldom present an idea of 
reserve force. 

In the concerts — symphony concerts — ^there was undue honor 
paid to Wagner, who was represented ten times to four of Dvorak, 
Brahms, Liszt, Saint-Saens and Schumann; to two of Haydn, Mo- 
zart, Mendelssohn, Raff and Tschaikowsky. Next to Wagner came 
Beethoven. 

Gilson's remarkable "La Mer " was cut recklessly, and no just 
idea of the music could be gained by the hearer. 

Many of the novelties were unworthy of the occasion. Among 
the more important works heard for the first time at these concerts 
were Tschaikowsky' s Fifth Symphony, Thierrot's Sinfonietta, E 
major; Saint-Saens Second Symphony, and MacDowell's "Ham- 
let and Ophelia." 

The Kneisel Quartet gave concerts distinguished as ever by 
purity of taste and perfection of performance. The chief novelties 
were Lalo's B-flat quartet, Brahms' clarinet quintet and MacDow- 
ell's "Sonata Tragica," for piano. 



OF THE UNITED STATES. xi 



Of virtuosos who visited the town for the first time, Mr. Henri 
Marteau, the violinist, deserved particular attention; nor should 
the piano recitals of Mr. Busoni, who now lives in New York, be 
passed over without a word of recognition. 

DeKoven's operettas "The Fencing Master" and "The Knick- 
erbockers," were first produced during the season and at Boston 
theatres. 

It must be said that the programs of the many piano and song 
recitals were not distinguished as a rule, for their novelty. With 
few exceptions, pianists and singers were content to follow the 
l>eaten track. Mediocrity was often applauded enthusiastically, 
and that which was excellent was often a stumbling block, or 
utterly ignored. But such characteristics of a musical season are 
not confined to Boston. 

American composers were best represented this season by 
Chadwick and MacDowell. Their compositions did not deserve 
attention simply because they were "American;" for there is no 
such thing as "American music." But such compositions as 
"Phoenix Expirans," and Mr. MacDowelPs works for orchestra 
and piano would undoubtedly find favor in any musical city 9f 
Europe or America, for they show technical skill as well as musical 
imagination. 



THE CHICAGO SEASON. 

BY CAI^VIN B. CA.DY. 

To one who has known something of the growth of musical 
appreciation and understanding in Chicago for the past quarter 
century, the musical record of the city for the past year, in respect 
of both quantity and quality, even excluding the music art exhibit 
of the World's Columbian Exposition, is a matter of congratulation. 
Like her growth in population and wealth. Chicago is beginning 
to move rapidly to the front in matters of literature, science and 
art, in all its departments, and already the impetus received from 
the past year's work, despite the financial stringency, is beginning 
to show strong onward progress aS regards the number of pros- 
pective ' concerts, and also their quality in respect both of the 
works to be given and the character of their interpretation. 

And, first of all, it is worthy of record that fifty men in Chi- 
cago could be found who were sufficiently interested in the devel- 



XII THE MUSICAL YEAR BOOK 



opment of a knowledge of music to be willing to pledge each a 
thousand dollars per year, for three years, to support an orchestra 
second to none in the world. Here the public spirit, unity of pur- 
pose and self sacrifice of Chicago citizens of wealth are once more 
exemplified in a truly remarkable manner. On the continent, but 
for governmental subsidies, the majority of the orchestral societies 
would drop into innocuous desuetude; and with the help of the 
Boston Symphony Orchestra, New York records but sixteen regu- 
lar symphony concerts. But despite the losing game (financially) 
that has been played for the past three years, the generosity and 
grit of the men who make it possible for Chicago to possess the 
Thomas Orchestra, have shown no signs of weakness. 

A second point of interest was the continuance of the policy 
outlined by Mr. Tomlins and inaugurated by the Apollo Club of 
repeating each concert for the culture and entertainment of the 
lar^e body of so-called wage-workers. The generous impulses 
which conceived this philanthropic scheme, and the ultimate 
object of bringing into the lives of a large class of citizens that re- 
fining influence which music, rightly given, received and under- 
stood can exert, is to be most warmly commended, but it may be 
fairly questioned whether zeal has not blinded the eyes of wisdom 
in its judgment of the best way to attain the desired and desirable 
object. I cannot help feeling that the method pursued by the 
Apollo Club must not only fail, but in that failure possibly retard 
the progress toward the desired goal. In two respects the policy 
of the Apollo Club appears to be weak : ( i ) The effort to make class 
distinction touches a tender spot in the body politic, and arouses a 
certain amount of resentment in many who would gladly avail 
themselves of popular prices but for the badge they must wear in 
order to secure the coveted pleasure. Class distinction is un- 
American in its spirit, and, right or wrong, success cannot be 
looked for where the spirit of a people is ignored or rudely jostled. 
(2) This work for the masses begins at the top and not at the bot- 
tom. It is impossible to build a temple of beauty without a 
foundation of understanding. There is a "preparation of the 
heart " which must precede the understanding of the works which 
were g^iven by the Apollo Club to its subscribers. It is too much 
to expect an audience wholly unprepared in a general sense, to 
understand and therefore enjoy and receive benefit from the com- 
plex art works constituting the programs of the past season. But 
the efforts of Mr. Tomlins and the Apollo Club are worthy of grate- 
ful recognition. 



OF THE UNITED STATES. xiii 



Apart from vocal and piano-forte recitals by resident and im- 
ported artists, the number of concerts by home organizations is 
certainly not large when the population of the city is considered. 
Only in the department of orchestral music can the season be com- 
pared with Boston, New York, Brooklyn, Cincinnati, Philadelphia 
and Baltimore; and in the matter of choral music, these cities are 
far ahead. Even such cities as Allegheny, Pa., Buffalo, N. Y., 
Cleveland, O., Concord, N. H., Milwaukee, Wis., Nashville, Tenn., 
New Bedford, Mass., Providence, R. I., and others, make almost as 
good and in some cases better showing than Chicago; and in 
chamber music, but little advantage in favor of Chicago may be 
noted. 

The ever green story of the essay on snakes in Ireland applies 
with absolute truthfulness to opera in Chicago, so that we may pass 
on to the orchestral work. 

Mr. Thomas is often accused of narrowness in choice of ma- 
terial for his programs, and of prejudice in favor of the German 
school, but with the exception of the acknowledged masters of 
the German school — Bach, Beethoven, etc. — an examination of 
authors found upon twenty-three programs reveals but seven Ger- 
man writers. As a matter of fact Mr. Thomas is the most liberal 
of all the conductors in his recognition of merit in all schools, and 
in his willingness to present much that must seem to him of com- 
paratively little merit. The following list of composers, number- 
ing forty-four, will show the wide catholicity in choice of authors, 
as well as compositions. The bracketed figures show the number 
of compositions of each composer: Andersen ( i ), Bach (4), Beetho- 
ven (10), Berlioz (4), Bizet (i), Benoit (2), Brahms (6), Chopin (4), 
Dvorak (6), Delsart (i), Duvivier (i), Goldmark (2), Godard (i), 
Grieg (3), Gounod (2), Hamerik (i), Liszt (10), Mascagni (i), Mosz- 
kowsky (3), Mendelssohn (3), MacCunn (i), Mozart (3), Massenet 
(i), Meyerbeer (i), Mackenzie (i), Paine (i), Paderewski (i), Ros- 
sini (i), Rheinberger (i). Raff (i), Reinecke(i), Scharwenka (2), 
Schucker (i), Svendsen (Songs), Schubert (5), Saint- Saens (5), 
Strauss (2), Servais (i), Schumann (5), Tschaikowsky (6), Tinel (i), 
Volkmann (2), Weber (4), Wagner, thirty-four numbers from nine 
of the operas. 

AtUie twenty- three concerts there were presented nearly 120 
compositions exclusive of numbers from Wagner, and something 
over 150 including Wagner. Six works are marked on the pro- 
gram as new to America, and were by Russian. Austrian, German, 
Scotch, Belgian and Norwegian writers. There were but thirteen 
symphonies and nine concertos given, with a goodly sprinkling of 



XIV THE MUSICAL YEAR BOOK 



suites, symphonic poems and variations to give body and at the 
same time interesting variety. So that it cannot be said that these 
programs were too heavy, unless exceptions be taken to so much 
Warner. But it was precisely upon Wagner nights that the larger 
audiences were gathered, so that such exceptions are worthless. 
Taken all in all, dignity, variety, catholicity of taste and popular 
quality are about as happily balanced in the programs as could be 
desired, and lack of audiences cannot be attributed to this source. 

The general character of the performances can only be said 
to have been good; but it must be remembered that Mr. Thomas 
has had to create a new orchestra, and much of his material was 
not of a very plastic nature. What we most missed was the 
superb and unequalled brasses one used to hear in the old Thomas 
orchestra. But in spite of all this Chicago residents had the oppor- 
tunity the past year of hearing an orchestra second to none, under 
the leadership of one of the greatest conductors in the world, and 
for that they ought to be thankful. 

In the field of chamber music there were but six concerts 
reported, but if one quartet club had not failed to report there 
would have been ten on record. The most important series — that 
by the Bendix quartet — failed to realize the necessary financial 
support, although the programs were not only very fine, but most 
excellently played. The reason for this lies in the fact that the 
public is entirely unprepared to understand and enjoy the most 
that was presented at these concerts. Take, for instance, the 
Brahms program. There were two large and extremely complex 
works , which those who played had studied long and carefully ; 
but what preparation had the public had? and how can it be 
expected that the public will care to go and listen to what it has 
had no opportunity of studying, and hence no basis for under- 
standing ? You might as well ask the people to listen to lectures 
in Sanskrit. Educational work has got to be done, and programs 
must be so constructed that they shall "draw" and not drive away. 

The Apollo Club gave but one important novelty, and that 
was the beautiful ''Requiem Mass" by Dvorak. It is a little diflScult 
to divine just why the club should move in so narrow a circle, and 
draw, year after year, from about the same repertoire. I confess 
to wishing that for a Christmas concert I might hear a Bach Christ- 
mas cantata once in a while, in place of "The Messiah;" not for 
variety's sake, but because as a whole it is a deeper, more genuine 
work. And when one thinks of the enormous wealth of that most 
beautiful and helpful music called choral, utterly unknown to the 
people, it becomes a matter of wonderment that one of the finest 



OF THE UNITED STATES. xv 



choral organizations in this or any other country should not draw 
more largely from this vast wealth. 

But it is a matter of greater wonderment that a city of nearly 
two million inhabitants should have but two really active and effi- 
cient choral organizations — one American and one German. 

What Chicago needs is the systematic and thorough develop- 
ment of its choral resources, until the spirit of song, and a corres- 
ponding musical intelligence as regards vocal music is developed. 
I doubt very much whether any orchestral organization can find a 
constituency sufficiently large to support it. Vocal music comes 
nearest to the hearts of the people, because it is a home music, and 
its power for good is proportionately greater. And while due rec- 
ognition must be made, not only of the influence of the orchestral 
and chamber music, but also the artistic recitals of such artists as 
Eddy, Hyllested, lyiebling, Mittelschulte, Wild and Mme. ZeivSler, 
and the effi^rts of such an organization as the Amateur Club, it still 
remains true that the most vital work is to be done through choral 
music. To not only carry song into the humblest homes, but to 
develop an intelligent ability to join with the many in choral har- 
mony, gives to musicians rightly prepared, the greatest promise of 
helpfulness, and a city like Chicago must needs furnish a field 
broad enough to employ the talent of a large number of active 
workers. This development of the choral resources of the city 
seems to me, therefore, the greatest present need, even when 
thought of in relation to orchestral and chamber music. Fifty 
thousand dollars a year spent in developing singers would be more 
certain to have created, at the end of five years, a constituency 
willing and anxious to support symphony concerts than many 
more years of the present method of spending that amount. 



THE NEW YORK SEASON. 

BY II. K. KREHBIEI,. 

As a rule, it may be said, the musical season in New York 
begins on November first and ends about April fifteenth. Of 
course never a year passes but a number of concerts or operatic 
performances take place before the former date and after the 
latter; but the two dates may be set down as marking the limits 
of the period wherein all that gives the New York season charac- 
ter and dignity is contained. In the review which I have under- 
taken of the season 1892-1893, I shall, however, extend the record 



XVI THE MUSICAL YEAR BOOK 



ill both directions in order to include some of the special features 
which owed their existence to the Columbian celebration. 

The season diflFered in one striking respect from its pre- 
decessors for many years. It was without that stately and opulent 
series of operatic representations which had scarcely ever failed 
since opera found a footing in the United States. This was owing 
to the fact that on August 27, 1892, the Metropolitan Opera House, 
which nine years before had succeeded the Academy of Music as 
the official home of this delightful and aristocratic form of art, 
had been so damaged by fire as to make its restoration in time for 
the regular season impossible. There was for a time considerable 
talk about a postponment of the opening date and occupation of 
another playhouse, but various considerations, among them the 
necessity of humoring the fashionable element which plays so 
dominant a role in the matter, prevailed, and Messrs. Abbey and 
Grau, who had taken a lease of the Opera House on exceedingly 
favorable terms and entered into an agreement with the stock- 
holders to give a season of grand opera in Italian and French, 
finally cancelled their contracts made with artists, and the music 
lovers of New York were for the first time within their memories 
left without operatic representations of a high class. In lieu of 
them they were permitted to witness a feeble and appropriately 
disastrous effort to substitute opera in the vernacular for the Italian 
or German exotic. Mr.UDscar Hammerstein, who had for several 
years attempted to habilitate English opera in his Harlem Theatres 
announced a season in his new Manhattan Opera House, in 
Thirty-fourth street between Broadway and Seventh avenue. Mr. 
Hammerstein was profuse of promises. He confessed to no less 
lofty an ambition than to suppljr the want left by the suspended 
animation of the Metropolitan institution. He talked long about 
reviving the glories of the German regime which had attracted 
world-wide attention to the house in upper Broadway, and ended 
by organizing one of the most wretchedly equipped companies 
ever seen in the country, and giving a series of representations in 
English and polyglot, no better than those with which he had 
made shipwreck in Harlem. One thing only lent the enterprise 
a semblance of dignity. 

He opened his season on January 24 with a production — the 
first in America, of Moritz Moszkowski's " Boabdil," an opera 
that, by virtue of successful performance in Berlin, had been ex- 
ercising the public mind of Germany for about a year. Despite 
a slipshod performance and the tawdries to stage furniture there 
was a disposition on the opening night of the season to believe 



OF THE UNITED STATES. xvii 



in the honesty of Mr. Hammerstein's intentions and to hope that 
he might succeed in giving permanency to an institution from 
which little is to be hoped in the way of popular, artistic educa- 
tion so long as it is permitted to remain in the hands of specu- 
lative imprevssarios. The hope was short lived, however. "Boab- 
. dil" was succeeded by wretched performances of a few operas of the 
hurdy-gurdy list and the season of *'' Opera in English " came to 
an end with a crash. The new opera house was devoted for a 
few months to the spoken drama, and proving to be unprofitable 
to the owner, it was, in the summer of 1893, tryrned over to the 
managers of a vaudeville show. 

In view of the width and depth of the chasm which yawned 
between Mr. Hammerstein's protestations and his achievement 
the failure of his venture can not be said to have taught any les- 
son, or to have had any significance with respect to the question 
whether or not it is possible to give New York permanent opera. 
If it had been possible to develop a craze for opera in the vernac- 
ular which would have accepted such performances as Mr. Ham- 
merstein gave, no good would have been accomplished, and 
nothing permanent would have grown out of them. The real 
operatic problem is not one of language, but of system and disci- 
pline. Transition from such an organization as was maintained 
at the Metropolitan Opera House from 1884 to 1891 to a permanent 
institution of high artistic order, making use of the English lan- 
guage ^as a practical thing; and it is only from a return to the old 
policy that a satisfactory solution of the problem is to be expected. 
It is in the nature of things that sooner or later New York, acting 
for the United States, shall follow the example of France, Ger- 
many and Russia, and establish an operatic institution which, like 
our theatre shall use the vernacular. From German opera, prop- 
erly organized, to opera in English the step is feasible; from Ital- 
ian opera in the hands of private speculators and dependent on 
compositions not in consonance with the dramatic and musical 
taste of the American people or the age, the step is impossible. 
It is a recognition of this fact which led a majority of the opera 
lovers of New York so deeply to deplore the change of policy 
made by the stockholders of the Metropolitan Opera House, 
when they placed this institution almost unreservedly in the 
hands of Messrs. Abbey and Grau for the season of 1891-1892. 

It is comforting to turn from the contemplation of the oper- 
atic ignis fatuus to the career of the oldest and proudest of the 
concert institutions in the country. In April. 1892, the Philhar- 
monic Society, of New York, celebrated the fiftieth anniversary 



XVIII THE MUSICAL YEAR BOOK 



of its foundation. The season under review, therefore, was its 
fifty-first, and it speaks well for the degree of stability which it 
has attained, that measured by the degree of popular interest as 
evidenced in turn by the subscriptions, the season was the most 
successful one in the history of the society. The Philharmonic 
Society is composed of practical musicians and its concerts are 
given by its members, who are paid by a pro rata distribution of 
the net receipts at the end of the season. The sum received by 
each active member for the six concerts and six public rehears- 
als given in th^ season 1892-1893 was $246^more by $21 than 
was ever paid before. This result was largely due to the steady 
growth in appreciation of high-class music which has been 
noticeable in New York for several years, but there can be no 
question that the popularity of Mr. Anton Seidl, the conductor, 
also contributed to the result. The concerts were given in the 
Music Hall owing to the destruction of the audience room of the 
Opera House. There was a departure in some respects from the 
conservatism which has heretofore marked the career of the 
society, and some of the innovations provoked querulous comment 
among the subscribers. As a rule novelties have not figured ex- 
tensively on the Philharmonic lists, the society's policy being 
rather to give model performances of works of approved merit 
than to experiment with untried compositions. Mr. Seidl modi- 
fied this policy somewhat, and in the progress of the season 
introduced no less than six works which had never been heard at 
a Philharmonic concert before, namely, Paul Gilson's "La Mer," 
a work of decidedly revolutionary character; August Klughardt's 
Symphony in C minor, which is as old fashioned as Gilson's 
symphony is new; G. Templeton Strong's Symphony in G minor; 
Benjamin Godard's Second Concerto for Violin, a weak and 
spineless composition; Eduard Lassen's Concerto in D, for the 
same instrument, and Tschaikowsky's sextet for strings, "Souv- 
enir de Florence." Since the extreme radicalism of the first 
work on this list was balanced by the extreme conservatism of 
the second, it can scarcely be said with justice that Mr. Seidl was 
guided in his choice of novelties by a desire to make propa- 
ganda for any particular tendency in art. Of the eight sym- 
phonies performed at the six concerts only three (one by Bee- 
thoven and two by Schumann) were written by men not living. 
This might fairly be interpreted as proof of a desire on Mr. 
Seidl's part to encourage the composers of today; but the in- 
teresting character of the newer symphonies went' far toward 
silencing criticism on that ground. 



OF THE UNITED STATES. xix 



The Oratorio Society and Symphony Society, under the di- 
rection of Mr. Walter Damrosch, also gave their concerts in the 
Music HalL Mr. Damroseh, in addition to the work entailed on 
him by these concerts and concerts in other cities, gave a series 
of Sunday night concerts in the Music Hall throughout the 
season. Mr. Seidl gave a similar series, though not so extended 
a one at the Lenox Lyceum. At these concerts quite a number 
of new compositions of a lighter order which I have not included 
in my list of novelties were brought forward, though the eflForts 
of both conductors were directed largely to win popularity by 
means of fragments of admired operas given in concert form. 
An exception to the rule was made by Mr. Seidl's Wagner con- 
certs during the last nights of his season when, with the note- 
worthy forces organized for his concert tours through New En- 
gland and elsewhere, he produced excerpts from Wagner's dramas 
m splendid style. 

In the following tables I have set down the important novelties 
brought forward in the course of the season. Those which were 
conducted by Mr. Seidl were performed at concerts of the Philhar- 
monic Society; that by Mr. Damroseh at a concert of the Oratorio 
Society; those by Mr. Warren at services of the Church Choral 
Society except Dvorak's "Spectre's Bride" which was a special 
performance for the benefit of charity. The statement that this 
work was a novelty in New York City must be literally con- 
strued. It was not a stranger to devotees of choral music in the 
metropolis, however, since it had been performed on March 20, 
1886, under the direction of Theodore Thomas, at a concert of 
the Brooklyn Philharmonic Society. For the sake of absolute 
accuracy in the record it should further be added that the first 
public hearings of the works brought forward by the Philharmonic 
Societ 5^ were at public rehearsals on the afternoons of the days 
immediately preceding concert dates, which are those set down m 
the table of instrumental novelties The same is true of Tinel's 
Oratorio, "St. Francis of Assisi." 

Concerning some of the more significant of these novelties I 
desire to say something. The production of Tinel's oratorio was 
the first performance of the work in the United States. Indeed, 
the name of the composer was all but unknown on this side of 
the Atlantic Ocean. In New York an organ sonata of his com- 
position had been played by Mr. Samuel P. Warren and Mr. Van 
der Stucken, Mr. Seidl and Mr. Fleck had played some of his 
incidental music to Comeille's tragedy, "Polyeucte." The ora- 
torio is laid out on a logical plan which must be set down as the 



^ 



XX THE MUSICAL YEAR BOOK 



fruit of ripest reflection, yet the plan does not force itself upon 
one's attention to the exclusion of ingenuous enjoyment. Outside 
of the first part of the work which treats of the early life of the 
Saint and is secular to the verge of the operatic style (think of an 
insinuatingly graceful slow waltz as the basis of the greater part 
of the music) this simplicity of enjoyment, however, is reserved 
for the climaxes of the oratorio, which are settings of three 
hymns attributed to St. Francis, and interesting in literary history 
as being among the earliest of such attempts at versification. 
Nevertheless for listeners gifted with the analytical faculty there 
is scarcely a page of the score which does not challenge attentioif. 
*' St. Francis " is one of the few works of its class which utilize 
the system of typical phrases. The principal one of these 
phrases Tin el very properly associates with the virtue which was 
first in the estimation of the Saint, that is poverty. It plays an 
important role in a ballad of the first part, in which St. Francis 
sings of poverty as if it were a damsel held captive by a giant 
and rescued by a gallant knight; also in a hymn to Dame Poverty 
which he sings after having founded his religious order; it is 
finally the theme of the apotheosis of the Saint with which the 
work is brought to a close. By citing this instance I wish to con- 
vey an idea of the composer's structural plan. As a whole the 
oratorio is a work of extraordinary merit, full of originality in 
conception, so dramatic at times as to carry the fancy completely 
captive, rich in delineation of moods, masterly in the exhibition 
of the technique of composition and exceedingly daring in its 
employment of eflFects, vocal as well as instrumental. 

Of the other vocal novelties, aside from Moszkowski's opera, 
it is cause for pride that judged purely on their merits, the most 
interesting and beautiful were the compositions of native Amer- 
icans. I refer to the settings of two mediaeval church hymns, 
"Phoenix Expirans," and " Hora Novissima," by George W. 
Chadwick and Horatio W. Parker. Both of these works were 
brought forward by the Church Choral Society, and I do not hesi- 
tate to put them amongst the best half dozen compositions which 
America has produced. They are affluent in melody of a refined 
order, rich in harmonic texture, and their instrumental scoring 
is most eflFective. The season in New York was distinguished by 
the number of high-class compositions- from native pens to 
which it gave a hearing. A symphony by G. Templeton Strong 
was played by the Philharmonic Society, two operettas by Reg- 
inald de Koven, and one by Edgar S. Kelley were performed at 
the theatres, and a feature of the public exercises in celebra- 



OF THE UNITED STATES. xxi 



tion of the four hundredth anniversary of the discovery of Amer- 
ica by Columbus was the production of a cantata by Silas G. 
Pratt. Four other American compositions had a hearing at a 
concert given by the National Conservatory of Music, on March 
50. These were the symphony by Henry Schoenefeld, of Chi- 
cago, the pianoforte concerto by Joshua Phippen, of Boston, the 
suite for strings by Henry BuUard, also of Boston, and the can- 
tata by Horatio W. Parker, at the time a resident of New York, 
but now organist and choir director of the Trinity Church, Bos- 
ton. These works were prize-takers in the competition established 
by the Conservatory to signalize the coming of Antonin Dvorak 
to be its director. The jury that passed on the instrumental 
compositions was composed of Dr. Dvorak, Asger Hamerik, 
Rafael Joseffy, John K. Paine and Xaver Scharwenka; on the 
vocal work, Dr. Dvorak, Dudley Buck, W. W. Gildchrist, B. J. 
Lang and William h- Tomlins.

XXIV THE MUSICAL YEAR BOOK 

COLUMBIAN EXPOSITION SEASON. 

BY GEORGK H. WII^SON. 

The first purpose of Exposition music was educative. The 
Exposition Company, or Local Directory, decided at the inception 
of the undertaking to present music as well as the kindred arts of 
painting, sculpture and architecture, from the highest possible 
standpoint. When in the early summer of 189 1 Theodore Thomas 
was invited by a committee of the Local Directory to take the posi- 
tion of Musical Director of the Exposition, he accepted, to hold in 
trust, as he so fittingly expressed it, "the honor of music." He 
accepted the position the more willingly because he found himself 
in full sympathy with the directors in their purpose to make of mu- 
sic an art exhibit; but he explicitly covenanted with the Music 
Committee of the Local Directory that beyond his responsibility 
to them he should not be interfered with in any way whatsoever. 
With his ripe knowledge of men and his experience in affairs of 
a public and semi-political character, Mr. Thomas foresaw the dan- 
gers that would confront him in an endeavor to conduct his de- 
partment from the sole standpoint of art, unless he could be 
entirely free from all disturbing influences. That Mr. Thomas and 
his associates of the Bureau of Music were not free from ' 'disturb- 
ing influences" is, unfortunately, a matter of history, but the record 
cannot show that the high standard set at the beginning was de- 
parted from one iota. 

Most generous and unparalleled were the appropriations fur 

nished by the Local Directory — ^which alone had the responsibility 

of financing the Exposition. Two halls were built. Music Hall, a 

section of the beautiful architectural composite whose dominating 

feature was the Peristyle bounding the east side of the Court of 

Honor, and Festival Hall, situated between the Transportation and 

Horticultural buildings, fronting an arm of the lagoon west of the 

Wooded Island; the one costing $132,000, the other, $90,000. The 

architect of Music Hall was Charles B. Atwood, Designer-in-Chief 

of the Exposition. 

The building is 246 feet long, 140 feet wide and about 65 feet high. The 
main audience room is in the center of the building, and is 125 feet long by 
the full width of the same, and occupies the full length of the structure. The 
space for orchestra and chorus at the east end is in the form of a great hemi- 
cycle or recess which opens into the main hall by an arch 66 feet wide and 54 
feet high. The platform for the orchestra is just outside the arch, with the 



OF THE UNITED STATES. xxv 



chorus risine behind on a series of wide steps. This section accommodates an 
orchestra oi 120, and a chorus of 300. West of the orchestra is the parquet, 
seating 800 persons, the seats being arranged on wide steps or platforms rising 
to the rear, thus giving an uninterrupted view of the stage and conductor. A 
wide loggia encircles the parquet. Above the loggia is the balcony, seating 
1,100 persons, the seats here alsobein^ arranged on rising steps. Around the 
front of the balcony are beautiful Corinthian columns supx)ortingthe roof, and 
on the inner space is a large skylight, giving ample light by day. The interior 
of the hall is richly decorated in colors from designs by Frank D. Millet, Di- 
rector of Decoration of the Exposition, while the great arch of the hemicycle 
is ornamented with architectural detail, the whole brilliantly lighted by elec- 
tricity in the most novel eflfects. Over each of the arches, supporting the third 
floor used for general purposes, is inscribed a theme, or portions of one, chosen 
one each from the best known works of the great classic masters, some twenty 
composers in all being represented. Accommodation for chamber music is 
found in an airy room, seating 600 persons, at the west front, second floor of 
the building, separated from the balcony of the large hall by great pillars, be- 
tween which curtains are hun^. The building is most happily adapted to con- 
cert purposes, and in the opinion of architects and artists possesses the ideal 
interior of all exposition buildings. 

Festival Hall was built from designs by Francis M. White- 
house, architect, of Chicago, who, though forced to modify his 
original plans, and thereby sacrifice many purely artistic features, 
produced a building admirably suited for festival purposes. 

Owing to the site chosen, the building is cruciform in exterior outlines, 
and within is patterned after the Greek theatre, the chorus being assigned 
the place occupied in the theatre by the sta^e. The Doric style of the build- 
ing makes it simple and impressive. The interior is simple in its arrange- 
ments. The western end is taken up by the chorus of 1,500, and the orchestra 
(on a aet>arate stage) of 160. Immediately in front is the pit, seating 500; this 
is surrounded by the front circle, or parquet, rising in easy tiers to the lar^e 
circle of supports which carry the domed roof. The dome is 140 feet in 
diameter, thus leaving the entire building without obstruction. Back of 
the first circle and placed between the supports is a tier of twenty private 
boxes, each seating ten persons. Above the boxes and stretchingback to the 
walls of the building is the second creat circle or balcony. The seating 
capacity of the hall, exclusive of the chorus section and the stage, is 3,700. In 
the center of the sta^e is the large concert organ, built by the firm of Farrand 
and Votey of Detroit, Michigan. The building is provided with spacious 
lobbies and for the accommodation of chorus and orchestra ample assembly 
rooms are assigned. 

For a permanent orchestra of 1 14 players the amount of Ji 75,000 
was voted, and generous sums for the cost of music, the entertain- 
ment of foreign mu^cians of distinction, and for the running 
expenses of the Bureau were unstintedly granted. At the time of 
the disbanding of the orchestra in August the sum of $107,695.85 
had been paid out on its account. This expense, the cost of music 
approximating $10,000, and the subsidy of 1 10,000, paid the builders 
of the organ, or |i28,ooo in all, represents the sum which prop- 
erly should be charged to the maintenance of the orchestral,

One dollar was the usual charge for all seats (reserved) at con- 
certs given with orchestra; 25 cents was the standard admission 
price to all organ concerts. 

The balance over all expenses, excepting cost of orchestra, 
from 70 *orchestral and choral, 3 chamber and 62 organ concerts, 
was $19,458.58. Other items of income connected with the pres- 
ence of the orchestra and bands raised this amount to 121,183.58. 
By adding what was received by the treasurer of the Exposition 
from the various series of entertainments which the Exposition 
management viewed as concessions, given in either Music or Fes- 
tival halls, after the resignation of the Musical Director, the total 
balance resulting from Exposition concerts is found to be $25,094.75. 



♦The concerts by the Columbian Chorus on September 18, and the Ax>ollo 
Musical Club on September 28, are not included. On these occasions the 
societies acted as coacessionaires.

The balance from 59 pay concerts, at which the Exposition 
Orchestra co operated, was 117,745.08. 

As has already been stated, the first purpose of Exposition 
music was educative. Mr. Thomas asked for a permanent orches- 
tra in order that he might maintain during the entire period of 
the Exposition a series of free concerts, the programs to be made 
up of the best high-class popular music. He felt that there would 
be gathered at the Exposition thousands who had never heard a 
concert orchestra, whose knowledge of instrumental music stopped 
with the brass band and the ^oup of players in theatres. It was 
for such as these that he organized what was perhaps the most per- 
fect concert orchestra of history, and with this most exquisite of 
pleaders sought to create a love for the best music. Of the 58 free 
concerts by the Exposition Orchestra, 53 were given in one or the 
other of the music halls, to audiences averaging 3,500 persons. 
What more potent means of enlightening the people in music could 
have been employed ? The wrapt attention, the sincere applause 
of nearly a quarter million of people, bespoke a gratitude that 
amply repaid the leader for his work, and the Directory of the 
Exposition Company for their splendid tribute to education. 

The theory of the pay concerts was that the cultivated in 
music who visited the Exposition would support an effort to bring 
before them a full illustration of music in its highest forms, as ex- 
emplified by the most enlightened nations of the world. The 
financial necessities of the Exposition caused the disbanding of the 
orchestra and the abandoning of many of the most cherished plans 
of the Bureau of Music before a fair test of this view was had. All 
concerts, be it remembered, given with the aid of the Exposition 
Orchestra, occurred when the attendance at the Exposition was 
lightest, before the tide turned which brought weekly millions 
within the gates, consequently study of the table of Exposition 
concert receipts should be undertaken having in view two facts: 
first, that in the mind of the Musical Director the free concert 
was always of first importance; second, that the estimated attend- 
ance at the Exposition not being realized by more than fifty to 
sixty per cent, during the life of the orchestra, all calculations as 
to the patronage the pay concerts would receive was set at naught. 

A few figures at this point will serve a purpose. It has been 
shown that the sum of f 118,000 was expended for music and the 
support of the orchestra. The concerts at which the orchestra was 
a factor numbered 117, making the pro rata expense per concert 
$1,008.50. Divided between the 58 free and the 59 pay concerts it 
will be seen that the Exposition management gave the public 



XXVIII THE MUSICAL YEAR BOOK 



gratis 1558,496, charging this amount along with the millions to 
architecture and to sculpture, which made Jackson Park a feast to 
mind and soul. In this catalogue then must be placed, 158,496 
also 1171,303, the cost of band music for out-of-door entertain- 
ment only; also the $222,000 before referred to» the cost of buildings 
for music; 1551,799, which the Exposition gave for entertaining 
its guests without so much as a thought of a return on the invest- 
ment! Is there any parallel in history for such liberality ? Those 
who judge the success of Exposition music, which, as has been 
shown, was not entered upon as a speculation but as an art enterprise, 
by the debit and credit account, will figure out a deficit of $41,- 
758.92 on the 59 orchestral concerts. (Pro rata expense of 59 pay 
concerts, 159,504, less balance of 117,745.08 after paying all ex- 
penses of said concerts. ) To carry figures a step further, we reach 
the actual expense of operating all pay concerts at the Exposi- 
tion: 

141,758.92 
Less balance of income from concerts and entertain- 
ments at which the Exposition Orchestra' did not 
cooperate 7,349.69 

134,409.23 
Add subsidy paid organ builders 10,000.00 



144,409.23 

The only items of expense connected with Exposition music 
not already mentioned are those belonging to the salary and office 
account, covering a period of about two years. 

What the Bureau of Music sought to accomplish will be seen in 
these extracts from its official announcements: 

Recognizing the responsibility of his position the Musical Director groups 
all intended illustrations around two central ideas: 

First. To make a complete showing to the world of musical progress in 
this country in all grades and departments from the lowest to the highest. 

Second. To bring before the people of the United States a full illustra- 
tion of music in its highest forms as exemplified by the most enlightened na- 
tions of the world. 

In order to carry out this conception of the unexampled opportunity now 
presented, three co-operative conditions are indispensable: 

I. The hearty support of American musicians, amateurs, and societies 
for participation on great festival occasions of popular music, and for the 
interpretation of the most advanced compositions, American and foreign. 

II. The presence at the Exposition of many of the representative musi- 
cians of the world, each to conduct performances of his own principal compo- 
sitions and those of his countrymen, all upon a scale of the utmost complete- 
ness. 



OF THE UNITED STATES.^ xxix 



III. A provision on the patt of the Exposition authorities of the means 
necessary for carrying out these plans in the erection of the halls indispensa- 
ble for successful performances, and in the engagement of solo artists, 
orchestras and bands. 

It can be truthfully said that plans of equal scope, having only the ele- 
vation of music in view, have never before been presented to the public of the 
United States. Their appeal should be universal, for in their fulfillment all 
may participate. The humblest music lover is asked to believe that there is 
something for him at the Exposition, and he is assured that the Bureau of 
Music will do all in its power to help him secure it. The complete success 
which the Musical Director seeks can be secured only by the lojral co-opera- 
tion of individual artists, large and small choral and instrumental societies, 
and organized amateurs in general. Such co-operation he earnestly asks. 
Regarding the standard of performance to be observed in all departments of 
Exposition music, the Musical Director holds that while co-operation is asked 
of all grades of attainment, every musical illustration there produced must 
be justifiable upon artistic principles; that is to say, it must oe what it hon- 
estly purports to be. The ounce or the pound of progress will be regarded 
as art, and every step from the lowest to the highest will be acceptable pro- 
vided it faces in the right direction, thus fulfilling its true use and popular 
ministry. , 

The cooperation of all the leading choral societies of the 
country was requested. Eastern and western societies were di- 
vided into festival groups, assignments for massed concerts made, 
and each was invited to make a separate appearance, under its 
own conductor. The appeal to amateurs, comprising our choral 
societies, was made in these words: '* It is assumed that thousands 
of singers and music lovers will visit the Exposition in any event, 
and that they will prefer to appear as contributors, thus conferring 
an honor upon their society and their homes not possible under 
any other circumstances; that because of their love of the art and 
the pride they have in the opportunity the Exposition will afford 
to show to tJie world the artistic level of the United States in 
music, the choral societies of the country will give their hearty 
cooperation without any expense to the Exposition." 

The leading male voice societies of the country were invited 
to cooperate in a three days' festival, and were asked to study the 
music to "Oedepus Tyrannus," by Prof. John K. Paine, "Colum- 
bus," a cantata by Dudley Buck, and "Frithjof,"by Max Brucli. 
The official invitation of the Exposition was tendered the New 
York Philharmonic Society, the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and 
the New York Symphony Orchestra, and to each an honorarium 
for expenses was offered. 

Invitations to representative European composers to visit the 
Exposition as guests and to conduct programs of their own compo- 
sitions were sent through the courtesy of the State Department and 
of resident ministers abroad to the following: Messrs. Arthur S. Sul- 
livan and A. C. Mackenzie of England; Gounod, Saint-Saens and 



XXX THE MUSICAL YEAR BOOK 



Massenet of France; Brahms and Joachim of Germany; Verdi, 
Mascagni and S^ambati of Italy; Anton Rubinstein and Tschai- 
kowsky of Russia; Grieg of Norway; Dvorak of Bohemia. An 
invitation to visit the Exposition and conduct concerts of the mu- 
sic of Bach and Beethoven was tendered Hans Richter of 
Vienna. Dr. Edward Hanslick of Vienna was also invited to come 
as guest. Everything possible was done to secure the presence of 
these the representative men in music of Europe. The secretary 
of the Bureau of Music visited Europe early in 1892 to convey to 
them the informal invitation and to arrange necessary details. 
The attitude of the Exposition toward the coming of these men 
was the highest possible; they were asked to visit us as guests, to 
engage upon an artistic mission suggested by the younger country 
in art in compliment to the foremost representatives of the older. 
A generous honorarium for expenses of travel was offered to each 
one, but the element of business did not appear. Among foreign 
organizations invited to visit the Exposition and with which ar- 
rangements were well advanced the siring quartet led by Dr. 
Joseph Joachim, and the choir of the Sistine Chapel of Rome, 
were most conspicuous. Such is the brief outline of the plans of 
the Bureau of Music. 

What was accomplished the pages of this book testify. The 
disappointments which the bureau had to bear were many, par- 
ticularly with reference to the coming of distinguished foreign 
musicians. Even the two Europeans who did positively accept 
— Dr. Mackenzie and Mr. Saint-Saens — were at the last informed 
that owing to the then impending financial crisis tl^e Exposition 
regretfully recalled its invitation. When the horizon brightened 
it was, alas! too late; the orchestra had been disbanded! 

The refusal of the railway companies of the country to make 
concessions in rates prevented the cooperation of many of the 
leading choral societies, especially of the Eastern States. 

Early in August the discouraging business situation so ser- 
iously affected the finances of the Exposition that the directors 
reluctantly accepted the voluntary resignation of Mr. Thomas, 
and arranged to disband the orchestra. Subsequently the direc- 
tors desired him to return as musical director, but he decided that 
it was not best. The orchestra was, however, continued as a con- 
cession for a period of about four weeks. Following the resigna- 
tion of Mr. Thomas, and until the close of the Exposition, the 
Bureau of Music withheld its ofiicial sanction from all concerts 
presented which had not received the endorsement of Mr. Thomas. 



OF THE UNITED STATES, xxxi 



During the three months of his service as Musical Director, 
Mr. Thomas was the target for assaults by the mistaken element of 
the newspaper press of this country, but he never flinched. All 
his life he has been the champion of honest art. In the supreme 
moment of trial he remained firm. The American people owe 
Theodore Thomas a debt that can never be paid. All his life he 
has fought to maintain a standard. His record at the Exposition 
justified his selection by the men who chose Olmstead, and Bum- 
ham, and Atwood, and Millet, and with them his name will be 
eternally linked. 

The following announcement regarding American music at 
the Exposition, issued Oct. 30, 1893, shows what recognition the 
native American composers received: 

The Bureau of Music, under date of June ^o, 1892, issued the foUowinj? : 

•' The Musical Director desires to include m the programs of Exposition 
concerts representative choral^ orchestral and chamber works by native 
American composers. All scores received by the Bureau of Music before 
October 15, 1892, will be submitted to a committee, whose names are shortly 
to be announced. The favorable recommendation of this committee will be 
final and insure performance. Both printed and manuscript music may be 
sent." 

On September 22 a further announcement was made: 

" The Musical Director desires to include in the programs of Exposition 
concerts representative choral, orchestral and chamber works by native Amer- 
ican composers. All scores received by the Bureau of Music before October 
15, 1892, will be submitted to a committee, whose names are shortly to be an- 
nounced. The favorable recommendation of this committee will l>e final and 
insure performance. Both printed and manuscript music may be sent. The 
Musical Director is jjrivileged to announce the names of the following musi- 
cians who will constitute the committee to examine American compositions: 

Camille Saint-Saens, - . - - Paris, France. 

Dr. A. C. Mackenzie, ----- London, England. 

Asger Hamerik. . . . - . Baltimore, Md. 

Carl Zerrahn, .----. Boston, Mass. 

B. J. Lang, ...... Boston, Mass. 

Wm. L. Tomlins, . . - . . Chici(go, 111. 

Theodore Thomas, ----- Chicago, 111. 

'• All American composers are invited to present wo^-ks for the approval 
of this committee, and m order to accommodate the greatest number, the 
bureau will receive scores up to November 15. 1892." 

In response to this call twenty-one composers sent the works named 
below: 

lo-Miscellaneous orchestral works. 

6 Overtures. 

7 Chamber music compositions. 
3 Cantatas (vocal scores only) . 

2 Works for voices and orchestra. 

I Suite for orchestra. 

I Piano concerto. 

I Oratorio (vocal score only). 



XXXII THE MUSICAL YEAR BOOK 

with the exception of Mr. Saint-Saeus, the examining committee made 
individual reports on the works submitted. Owing to Mr. Saint-Saens* long 
absence from France during the fall and winter of 1892-93, his services as ad- 
judicator were regretfully dispensed with. The examining committee recom- 
mended the following works: 

*'Suite Creole," for orchestra, - . - . John A. Broekhoven. 

Festival March for orchestra, . . _ Ad. M. Foerster. 

*• Resouvenir du Ballet,'' ) , „«;„=, tt^<,»,»^ 

- The Satyr's Reveille," } Lucms Hosmer. 

Overture, *'Witichis,'' . . - - . Margaret R. Lang 

Cantata,- '* Divine Love," C. B. Rutenber. 

Concert Overture, Herman Wetzler. 

Cantata, *' Dream Pictures," - - - - George E. Whiting. 

Of these compositions only the instrumental works of Messrs. Broekhoven, 
Foerster and Wetzler and Miss Lang had public performance. Because of un- 
foreseen circumstances, the Musical Director was unable to arrange for the 
performance of the choral works by Messrs. Rutenber and Whiting or the 
instrumental compositions by Mr. Hosmer. 

Prior to the opening of the Exposition, Prof. John K. Paine, Mr. K. A. 
MacDowell, Mr. George W. Chad wick, Mr. Arthur Foote, Mr. George F. Bristow 
and Mr. Templeton Strong were invited by the Musical Director to nnme such 
of their compositions as they desired to have performed at the Exposition con- 
certs. 

The following were preferred: Prof. John K. Paine: "Columbus March 
and Hymn,'' without chorus, three times; "An Island Fantasy,'' for orchestra, 
two times. K. A. MacDowell: Suite for orchestra, op. 42. three times. George 
W. Chadwick: Symphony No. i, in B-flat; Overture, **Melpomene:'' "Colum- 
bian Ode," laht movement; Quintet for pianoforte and strings, in K-flat. Arthur 
Foote: Serenade for strings, in K major, op. 25, two times (Roman za and Ga- 
votte from the Serenade had a separate performance); Serenade for strings, in 
E minor; Quartet for piano, violin, violoncello; in K major, op. 23. George F. 
Bristow: Overture, "Jibbewainoske," op. 64. 

In addition to the works hereinbefore mentioned, the following composi- 
tions were also heard at Exposition concert.s: Arthur Bird: Suite for orchestra. 
No. 3, op. 32, two times C. C. Converse: Overture. "Hail Columbia." F. G. 
Gleason: Prelude, "Otheo Visconti;" "Procession of the Grail,'' for orchestra. 
Henry Schoenfeld: Suite for orchestra. Harry Rowe Shelley: Suite for orches- 
tra, *^The Ruined Castle;" "Carnival Overture." Arthur Whiting: Sonata for 
pianoforte and violin, op. 17. 

To complete the record of American music at the Exposition, the two 
works commissioned for the dedication of the buildings on October 21. 1852, 
and performed then, demand mention, viz.: "Columbus March and Hymn" for 
orchestra, military band and chorus. Prof. John K. Paine; and music to "Co- 
lumbian Ode,'' for chorus, solo voices and orchestra, George W. Chadwick; a^so 
the Jubilee for chorus, solos and orchestra, by Mrs. M H. A. Beach, commis- 
sioned by the Board of Lady Managers and first performed at the Woman's 
Building, May i, 1893. On the occasion of the formal opening of the Exposi- 
tion, May I, 1893, the "Columbus March and Hymn" (without chorus) was 
repeated. For the Bureau of Music,

ORCHESTRA. 



Note.— The indefiniteness and incompleteness of some of the titles, is 
accounted for by the same discrepancy on the part of many of the programs; 
e.g.^ "Brahms— Hungarian Dances" (?). 

The figures in parenthesis, after titles, indicate the number of times such 
works were given. The names of cities following the larger and more impor- 
tant works, serve the same purpose, and also show at a glance where .such 
works were performed.

An Album of Eight Songs. The music composed by 

ELEANOR SMITH. 

Price $1.00. 

" "An interesting collection of songs for a medium voice. From the 
standpoint of the poet as well as of the musician these songs belong 
arriong the better class of music for a solo voice. They are fresh and 
melodious, with effective accompaniments and a certain naivette which 
lends an additional charm." 



An Album of Seven Songs . . . . 

The music composed by 
JESSIE L. GAYNOR. 

Price $1.00. 

"The composer gives evidence of refined taste, knowledge of har- 
mony and skill in accompaniment writing. The songs are most 
syllabic in style, but show a thorough understanding of correct poetic 
reading and of the corresponding musical accents. * * * If the present 
volume were published anonymously, it is doubtful if the most 
crotchety critic would deny that it was the work of a talented com- 
poser."
