The pianoforte recital given by Madame de Pachmann at Prince's-hall yesterday afternoon attracted more attention and a larger audience than usually fall to the share of this somewhat hackneyed form of entertainment. Madame de Pachmann, who was originally trained at Dr. Wylde's London Academy, had acquired some reputation under her maiden name of Miss Okey, but since her marriage with one of the most accomplished pianists of the age her style has naturally undergone a considerable change, and it cannot be denied that the change is altogether for the better. But although in some sense a pupil of her husband's, she has by no means adopted that artist's manner to the detriment of her own individuality. This was sufficiently proved by the fact that she was least successful in her Chopin selection. The music here, as everywhere else, was correctly and neatly rendered, but there was a lack of that delicate sensitiveness of touch, of that rhythmical piquancy, which make M. de Pachmann's reading of the Polish master a unique thing. The lady, on the other hand, gained well-merited success in Brahms's sonata in F minor (op. 5), a work of great length and even greater difficulty, which is attacked with impunity by few living pianists except Dr. von Bülow. The breadth of phrasing with which the slow movement was given, the lightness and brightness of the scherzo, the accuracy of memory and of manipulation, which admitted of not a single wrong note, were alike matter for admiration, and were alone sufficient to establish the position of Madame de Pachmann. Pieces by Schubert and Beethoven, Mr. Barnett's spirited "Tarantella", and two delicate sketches by the pianist herself were also included in the programme of an interesting albeit very long concert.
