Mme. Carreno Gives Her Final Recital—Brilliant Pianist Arouses Great Enthusiasm on Her Last Appearance in This City.

The last recital of Mme. Carreno was given last evening at Sherman-Clay Hall. Mme. Carreno graciously responded to to a crowded house. The brilliant pianist outdid herself and aroused overwhelming enthusiasm. The first number on the programme was the "Moonlight" sonata of Beethoven. It was rendered with a rich, warm sympathy, delicate pathos and brilliant execution that gave fullest value to each phase of the beautiful movements. The Chopin group was given with utmost grace, and consisted of the Nocturne op. 37, No. 2; the Barcarolle (by request), A flat Etude and the A flat Ballade. There was also a Schubert group, the charming A flat "Impromptu," the picturesque. "Soiree de Vienne." Schubert-Liszt, and the Schubert-Tausig "Marche Militaire," which simply carried the audience off its feet. Two numbers new here; a delightful Oriental tone poem. "An Arabian Night," and a "Scherzino" of Regina Watson's, were much enjoyed; the beautiful Tschaikowsky "Nocturne" was repeated by special request, and the sixth "Hungarian Rhapsodie" of Liszt, which was given heroic rendering, roused the audience to the highest pitch of enthusiasm.

Mme. Carreno graciously responded to two encores, giving her own graceful little "waltz" and the Chopin "Berceuse."

She leaves this morning for the north.
