“Carreno's Recital”

Another delightfully balanced programme beautifully played marked Mme. Carreno's second recital, which was given in the Metropolitan Temple last night to a fairly numerous audience. She performed the Bach-Liszt Fantasie and Fugue in G minor, the first Beethoven sonata of the 27th opus, a group of Chopins, another of Rubinsteins, and the Schubert-Tausig Marche Militaire. Also she played the MacDowell Etude de Concert, a welcome tribute to the American composer, who so seldom gets a hearing in his own country. The recital was an enthusiastic success. Carreno was in splendid mettle and displayed all of those remarkable qualities of temperament, analysis, tone-color and technique that were discussed in an earlier issue. Three times was she compelled to reappear before the audience at the close of the concert.

Carreno give her positively farewell recital in the same hall to-morrow afternoon. This is the programme: Sonata Appassionata, allegro, andante con moto, allegro non troppo, presto (Beethoven); (a) Nocturne in C minor, (b) Etude in A flat, (c) Waltz in C sharp, (d) Ballade in G minor (Chopin); Etudes Symphoniques (Schumann); (a) "Si Oiseau J'Etais," Etude (Henselt), (b) Romanza (Tschaikowsky), (c) Polonaise in E major (Liszt).

“Carreno, The Rag-Time Man And Two Critics.”

A small audience, mostly women, attended Carreno's farewell recital in the Metropolitan Temple Tuesday afternoon. But whatever the audience lacked in size it made up in appreciation. At the close of the programme Mme. Carreno was recalled again and again. Men cheered and women shouted "Bravo!" at the tops of their voices. A score of corsage bouquets were thrown to the artist. The programme was a happy blend of Beethoven, Chopin and Schumann together with a group of moderns. Beethoven was represented by the "Appassionata" sonata, and that famous work was given a superb reading under the thrilling fingers of Carreno.
