PHENOMENAL VOICES. Au account is givon in a rocent issue of an Amorican journal of a 'performance of Flotow's Martha in one of the principal American cities, whioh of thorn it scarcely matters, to romombor. - The only thing rondoring the notice of interest s the statement that tho roproscntativo of the prima donna' rdle, being encored in 'Die Last Roso of -Summer, repeated it an. octave tugncr, rcacmng JJ Hat m altissimo.

ELECTRIC SUBWAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 1 July 1889

ELECTRIC SUBWAYS. ,' , The question of substituting for the qvorheacl systein the carrying the electric wires in under . . ground subways is.one which must .sooner or later force itself on the attention of our oivio authorities. . In. an address recently delivered by Mr. K. L.

TRAWLING CRUISE OF THE LADY LOCH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 1 July 1889

TRAWLING CRUISE OF THE LADY LOCH. The trawling cruise of the steamer Lady Loch, which was made for the purpose of ascertaining the possibilities of establishing a remunerative deep sea fishery off the coast of Victoria, has terminated successfully. Several casts were made off the Ninety Mile Beach, extending over a considerable mileage, and every dip of the nets resulted in the ensnaring of large numbers of good sized edible fish. A good haul of oysters was also made on one occasion, as well as a large quantity of oyster spat. It has boen arranged that the latter material shall be taken to the oyster breeding grounds. Some of the finest specimens of the fish were brought to town, and several peculiar marine growths and animalculae which were secured have been forwarded to an expert for report and classification. It is pro- bable that before long the Lady Loch will go on another voyage of discovery. The log of the trip just concluded shows that on the 30th May the vessel cleared Port...

SIGNOR ALBERTO ZELMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 1 July 1889

SIGNOR ALBERTO ZELMAN. Signor Alberto Zelman, whose portrait we give this month, is a native of Trieste, and re- colved his musical education from Luigi Ricoi, the composer of the popular opera, Crispine e   la Comare. He was a fellow studont with Alberto Randegger, Francesco Berger and Rota, and in conjunction with them took part in the composition of an opera called Il Laz- zaroni. The first two of these are recognised as   composers of much talent, and Randegger is one of the most celebrated maestri di canto of modern times. Signor Zelman is himself a composer of considerable merit, and has pro- duced many compositions of sterling value, both vocal and instrumental. His latest pro-   duction is a charming marecau for the' piano     forte, entitled Serenade Andalouse, published in last month's issue of this paper, which will be recognised by all pianists as well represent- ing the bost class of modern music for the p...

WILL THE NATIONAL ORCHESTRA BE SELF SUPPORTING ? The action of the Government in subsidising tho Victorian orchestra' to tho extent of £3000 a year has been objected to, on the i ground that it is no part of the duties of a , Government: to assist a scheme which will benefit comparatively, few of. the community, and it has been' bluntly assorted that those- who want .an orchestra should pay for it. ...

Music, in its mode of expression, is intelligible, not to the musician alone, but to the common sense of all ; nor is there any fundamental difference between the musio of a popular ballad, of a fugue by Bach, or of a symphony by Beethoven. Although the more intricate composition may be loss easily intelligible, the moans of expression are in ovory case the same, and speak to us in a language whioh requires neithor alphabet nor grammar, no matter how simple or how complicated tho music before us. — M.

BEN TROVATO. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 1 August 1889

BENTROVATO. At a cortain performance of Faust the lessee of tho theatro, though possessed of a' good stage ' manager, was so anxious for everything to go off with clockwork regularity that he could not refrain from himself superintending cortain details. It had been arranged that preparatory to the performance of the cathedral scene three signals should be given, the first to indicato the getting ready of the trap for Mephistopheles's ascent, tho second to raise him to tho stage, and the third to lower him at the conclusion of -the scone. The lessee, anxiously taking note of tho performance, conceived the idea that tho timo hod arrived for the first sig nal, ho according gave it, and the 'trap was pot ready. Presently -the- stage manager came along, . and gave what he intended to be the ' first signal. Mephistopheles stood on the trap, and appeared on the soono to his intense astonishment in a part of tho opera where he had nothing to do. Not knowing what to make of it he stood ther...
