The following description of Fanny Bloomfield-Zeisler is taken from au editorial iu the New York Musical Courier. "No peture can do her justicei for the emotional and intellectual face, with its Tariety of expression, defies the photographer's art. I will nevcr forget the first night I heard her "play. It wa sin '85, at the Academy of Music in this city. I had heard little oí Bloomíield's abilitics except BOme vague rumora and a hrarty Indorsement f rom Dr. William Masón, so whcn a frail girl steppod out on tli estage, I was, I confesa, surprised. The Kulnnstcin D minor concerto was her selection, and my surprise deepened into nstonishment when I lieard powrful attaek in the opening chorus. Such firc, such a tone, such color- it was marrelous! Fannia Bloomfield is still vcry youhg. She is marrle'd to Sigismund Zcisler, ai well-known and able lawyer of Chicago. She was a pupil of Leschetitsky. She has played with Essipoff in London and has made a wonderful record in her numerous appearances with Nikisch. Mrs. Zeisier 's style is broad and iinpassioned. She has a wonderful temperament, real genius in fact. She is a cousia of the great pianist, Moritz Rosenthal and lier interpretations are warmer and more luminous than his." Her appearance in the first concert of the Choral Union series, November 13, will be an event of rare interest. Regarding the playingl of the Detroit Philharmonic Club, the Chicago Tribune says: "No such thoroughly iinished and artistic string playing has been heard in this city for many yeais, if ever." The Cleveland Leader says: "The exquisito unanimity of the grading, shading or 'colorlng', the instant ancous nnswering of the tones in the changos of tempo was wondcrful, and huslied the hall to perfect silence, so intense was the impresalon and so legitímate was the adiniration." To hear 6uch a combination as Mes. Zeislcr and the riiilhairmonic Club at one concert is indeed a privilege. We give the program ia full. 1. Mozart- Quartet in D major Philharmonic Club 3.
