Civic concert me Wylde s programme on wednesday last at the town Hall consisted of rhapsody on Breton Melo Dies Saint Saen Chelsea fayre Goss custard Romance and fanfare both by Charles Waters. The treat ment of the rhapsody is ecclesiastical due not Only to the composer s experience As an organist but also to the modality of the Basic themes. It is a lesson to anybody equipped with ears even slightly better developed than those of King Midas that appreciation of ecclesiastical modality and the establishing of a Standard of Church depend on knowledge and appreciation of Folk song. Furthermore Saint Saens demonstrates Here a principle which was realised and sometimes expressed in words by great composers such As Dvorak Glinka Chopin Liszt Wagner and others too numerous to mention right Back to the Days of Handel viz., that All great is necessarily based on Folk song. The other composers whose works were featured Are As English in style As Saint Saens is French and consciously or not Illus trate the foregoing principle. Carmel Hackendorf on the violin played Romance Canzonetta both by d Ambrosio and Allegro Fiocco. The selection was pleasing and showed taste in its arrangement. Miss Hackendorf s interpretation is remarkably mature. Her technique is faultless and in particular her bowing is Superb. On the piano she played concert study in d Flat Liszt. The same remarks apply to her playing of this piece a few inaccuracies com mencing were clearly the result of cold fingers but the impression left is that the player is primarily a violinist.
