Selected Content from the January 1900 Edition of The Etude

    Moritz Moszkowski.

    Moszkowski has had among his pupils many Americans. His Berlin studio has been described by one of the latter as having contained “little furniture, a desk, chair, and music cabinet, with busts and pictures everywhere, well-known faces of Liszt, Von B├╝low, and the fathers of classic music—Bach, Handel, Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven.

    Schumann’s Early Loves.

    It would be unfair to inquire minutely into the inevitable boyish passions of the young Schumann, were it not that his uncommon candor in describing them to his friends, the fullness of his confidences, and the rapid shifting of the objects of his devotion give amusing glimpses into the cloud-land of romance in which his youth was spent.

    Five-Minute Talks To Girls

    Individuality is indeed such a rare thing, you know. One has to sift one’s self through such a heap of readymade thought before one is able to squeeze out even one little drop of individuality, and even then it is questionable if this drop be not a composite of other men’s wisdom, and have only the color of originality from having passed through such a wondrous variety of knowledge and experience as to bear no noticeable resemblance of any one influence.
