The New York Philharmonic club ivas welcomed Friday evening by a large and demonstrative audience. The numbers by the club were well received and were rendered in a most artistic raanner. The time was perfect, the playing being more of the nocturnal than of the heroic character. The playing by the quartette was not proportionately so good as that of the entire club. The solo playing was on the whole very good except that some of the selections were more of a character to display the execution of the player than for the entertainment of the listener. Mr. Chas. Barth's violoncello solo "Tarentella," was well executed. Mr. Sol. Marcosson, first violin,is an artist of the tirstclass, with whom Mr. Zietz studied abroad. The most pleasing of the soloists was Mr. Kugene tVeiner, under whom the Philharmonic Club is now passing its sixteenth year. After his two selections in the second part he responded to an encoré unaccompanied. Miss Marión S. Weed from her first number was heartily welcomed. She possesses a pleasing voice. of fair range and good quality. The encoré to her first piece was "Little Donis," sung here short time ago by Emma Juch and later by Madame Nórdica. Her last numbers were heartily applauded. The applause of the audienc.e was indiscriminate and irritating to the club, which however readily responded. The next number in the lecture course will be Hou. . J. Ingalls, March 9. The postponed lecture of Rev. Gunsaulus, which should have been given Jan."'i9th, will be given March 2rd. The subject of the lecture will be "Puritanism," and not as announced, "Savonarola."
