Lhevinne Gives Remarkable
Execution of Works
of Masters
"The new Rubensten"-that is a dar-
ing appellation to give to any pianist
in these days when the tradition of the
great Russian virtuoso still survives;
but after the performance of Josef Lhe-'
vinne in University hall last evening,
one can understand at least the enthu-
siasm which applied it to him; and
can, moreover, appreciate the justice of
the more critical praise which has
been showered upon him. From every
standard of the art of pianoforte-play-
ing, it was a wonderful accomplish-
ment. And it is greatly to the credit of
the large audience that it judged his
playing with discrimination, evidently
distinguishing much that was finest
in it.
The art of Lhevinne is compounded
of all that is best. Beyond the mere
technical perfection, which would
alone place him in' rank with the great
virtuosi, he brings to his playing all
the poetic resources of a profoundly
simple and serene soul-and that is
after all the last that can be said.
Every phrase is uttered with finesse,
the "Fine feeling," and with a poise
and sincerity that carry it direct to the
hearer with its complete and deeply
realized meaning There is not a note
which has not been created in his con-
ception, and does not consequently at-
tain an individual beauty in the play-
ing. And for blending, the just bal-
ance of all the elements in a chord fj
instance, or the perfect joining o
sound to sound in the melodic se-
quence, that has perhaps never been
more exquisitely done.
Program Rendered Seriously
One has too, to thank Lhevinne for a
serious program, seriously presented.
Of Beethoven, he selected one of the
philosophic third group of Sonatas,
the seldom heard Opus 101. In the
sober and meaningful first movement,'
the Allegretto, he displayed a remark--
ably extended gradation of tone; sel-
dom going above a "piano," he manag-
ed to convey the impression of an al-
most infinite dynamic variety. And
the contrapuntal last movement was
a marvelous thing, with its clear and
delicate voice-playing. The Mozart
"Pastorale" was as one would wish al-
ways to hear Mozart; full of light and
grace, its fluttering embellishments
and flowing runs really liquid in their
clarity.- The program also offered two
of the noblest compositions of Schu-

Ten candidates were nominated yes-

place will be taken durnig that time
