Pachmann's Third Recital.
The Remarkable Virtuoso Again Exhibits His Digital Dexterity.
M. Vladimir de Pachmann, the noted
Russian pianist, gave his third recital at
Chickering Hall yesterday afternoon. He
was heard by a very large and
demonstrative audience. His programme was made
up of the following numbers, all by
Chopin: "Allegro de Concert," barcarole,
Opus 60; fantasie impromptu, Opus 66;
nocturne, Opus 27; fantasie, Opus 49; scherzo,
Opus 31; four preludes, ballade, Opus 38;
mazourka, Opus 41, No. 3; two valses, Opus
64 and Opus 42.
The pianist's finest work was heard in
the fantasie, which he played with an
intelligence unusual for him and with
splendid color, vigor, and variety of touch. It
was a notable exhibition of his remarkable
technical ability, and aroused the audience
to a high pitch of enthusiasm. He was
recalled several times, and finally responded
with the "Butterfly" etude. This led
to several more recalls, and the pianist sat
down and played delightfully Henselt's
"Si oiseau j'etais." At the end of the
recital he was again compelled to respond
to demands for more music, and this time
he played Chopin's A flat ballade. On the
whole this was the most satisfactory of
Pachmann's three recitals. A supplementary
concert is announced .
