I went to St. James's Hall on June 5 to hear the famous Vladimir
de Pachmann, the best living interpreter of Chopin's lovely music. I
found the pianist in splendid form, and the hall was entirely packed
with his admirers, ladies being in the majority. M. de Pachmann is not
only a wonderful player, he is a humorist of the first water, and, while
his fingers run over the keyboard with lightning-like rapidity, the
pianist flashes the drollest glances upon his fair admirers, whose gloved
hands respond with incessant applause.
