The pianoforte recital given by Mme. Marguerite de Pachmann on Saturday afternoon at St. James's-hall was of great interest, and was extremely well attended. Her playing of Beethoven's sonata in E flat, op. 81[a], "Les Adieux", was characterized by much feeling; and full scope for the display of her excellent technique was afforded by Raff's Prelude and Fugue from the suite in E minor, op. 72. The great progress that the pianist has made was shown by her rendering of a group of pieces by Chopin, the Andante Spianato, with its appended Polonaise, being especially well given. Mme. de Pachmann's own beautiful "Romance" and her clever "Thème et variations" were also played, and the programme further included Liszt's "Waldesrauchen", given with much delicacy, a taking "Gavotte and Musette", from a suite of pieces written by Frances Berger for Josef Hofmann, and Tausig's per-version of Weber's "Die afforderung [Afforderung] zum Tanz".
