It is A NEW CONCERT FAVORITE One of the foremost concert stars of last season was Mme. Frieda Lang- stately Mine. Frieda Langendorff." as one of the New York papers called made her de- but into the American concert field. Previous to last season Mine. Lang- endorff was known, only through her work in grand opera, and particularly for her magnificent Wagnerian inter- pretations. She has sung at the Ber- lin Royal Opera, the famous Wagner- tan Opera, at Bayreuth, at Vienna. Dresden. Hamburg. Wiesbaden, etc., and our own metropolitan opera. Her first professional engagement was at the opera at Strassburg, seven years ago. Since then Mme. Langendorff's art has gone on broad- ening, her rich German temperament bas developed, and her beautiful Foice has grown even more full and resonant, until today she is one of the best equipped artists before the public. Her first season in American con- cert work carried her to the Pacific coast, where she sang about fifteen concerts from Oakland to San Diego, her work receiving the most enthus- iastic praise .from the press. She had a tour in -the north and the raid- die west and one in the south and everywhere she was hailed as the .possessor of one of the most beau- tiful and remarkable voices before the rpublic. 4 In the spring she com- pleted her season by a tour with the ;.Dresden Philharmonic mak ing nineteen appearances with that organization, Mme. Langendorff's voice is most often compared to that of Schmnann- Heink. It is a mezzo-soprano of un- usual -volume, depth and range, of beautiful'timbre, with a tinge-of con- tralto quality., Her personality is strongly marked and intensely "dra- matic, a gift inherited from her mo- ther and one which nearly sent her onto the stage before the possibilities in her unusual voice turned her thoughts toward grand opera. Madame Langendorff is to give a .recital in Wesley church next Wed- nesday evening. (WESTERN HOCKEY PLAYERS FOR MONTREAL WANDERERS Winnipeg. Dec.
