    The Unique Operation Of The Century.

    The Philadelphia Press is responsible for a graphic account of an experiment which, to use its own language, is the unique operation of the century. It appears that a young man from Quakertown, Pa., engaged in the new and interesting industry of making corn-cob fiddles at a period of his existence when most infants have an insatiable craving for soothing syrups.

    English Women In The Orchestra.

    Those of us here in England who watch carefully the trend of matters musical, and who notice “which way the wind blows,” know well that the present opportunity for the musician lies in the orchestra. We are overburdened with music-teachers, with singers, solo pianists, violinists, and organists; but the supply of capable orchestral players only meets the demand. Read More

    Dr. William Mason - The Nestor of American Musicians.

    Dr. Mason’s book, as may be expected, includes memories of the most famous names in modern music,—from his delicate picture of Moritz Hauptmann, on whose “stove, a regular old-fashioned German structure of porcelain nearly as high as the ceiling, there was always a row of apples in process of slow baking,” to his unexpected addition to the Brahms ana,—every picture is graphic and delightful. So much has been said about Liszt’s friendship for Brahms that we quote the description of their first meeting verbatim. Read More
