The great musical critic, of Chicago, W. S. B. Mathews, has this to say of the great pianiste, Teresa Carreno, who is to appear in University hall, Saturday erening, April 25th : "It is tiue that every great artist has a style of hts own, by reason of which lus playing leaves au individual flavor in the memory. Thtis, of Ruhinstein I remember, first, bis headlong fury in the "Earl Kiug,1' and his deep teuderness in some selections from Schumaun and the Adagio of the Beethoven dth concerto; of Buelow I remetuberthe ntelligcnco and maeterly repose of his lnterpretations; of Sherwood, a aimilar intelligence and greater wainith ; of Joseffy, a diizzling perfect ion of linish; of Essipoff, an exquisitegrace and poetry of oooceptlOD. Each of these qualitie a"t times Carreno has, but the most notable trait of her publio appearances is the one that I have beforc mentloned- its air of spontaneity."
