Anyone who soes. a tamo ono. knocking; about a farm yard, nnd marks its quiet unobtrusive ways, would bo tempted to say, 'what n nice pet,' nnd so ? ho is— but only as a pet.

No sooner has tho grain been put in than' flocks of those birds flottlo on it, not ten or a dozen, or a score, but' somotimos in hundreds.

THE THEATRES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 1 June 1889

THE THEATRES. Mr. Bland Holt terminated his season of melodrama at the Thcatro Royal on Monday tho 20th inst. Contrary to previous experience the venture did not prove the success anticipated and for obvious reasons. It- is a recognised principle in dramatic no less than the ordinary affairs of life that when making a commence ment it is essential that one should put what is called his best leg foremost. Mr. Holt did not, do so, on tho contrary ho produced Pettitts tamo and uninteresting piece entitled TheUnion Jack, which fell flat incontinently. Tho title was good enough for a groat national if not sensational drama, but it turned out to be a very stupid and commonplace play with nothing to recommend it but a most pretentious name. True it permitted of tho employment of troops military and naval, and the principal characters wore more or less officers bearing her Majesty's commission, but the gist of tho plot and the stage necessities of the incidents only admitted of tho introduc...

"TO BE OR NOT TO BE." [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 1 June 1889

'TO BE OR NOT TO BE.' : A paraphrase on Hamlet's soliloquy ' To bo or not to bes,' by thu great French composer anil litttratcui', Hector Berlioz. Translated from his celebrated work, A' travel's chants. To bo, or nofc to bo; that is the question : whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suli'er wrotchoil operas, . ridiculous concerts, mediocre virtuosi, enraged composers, or to take anus against a sea of troubles, and by opposing end them ? To die, to sleep, no more ; and by a sleep to say we end the oarsplittings, the sufferings of the heart and reason, tho thousand shocks imposed by the exercise of criticism on our intellect and our senses ; 'tis a consummation devoutly to bo wished. To die, to sleep ; to sleep perchance to dream, ay, there's the rub ; tor in that sleep of death what pangs may conic when we Iiavo shuffled oft' this mortal coil — what mad theories we may have to examine, what discordant scores to listen to, what fools to praise, what outrages ; ;to see inflicted on mas...

Otto Linden taking the place of Mr. T. H. Guenett as director. The soason consists of. six con certs, and for these Mr. Linden has secured as strin gquartofc Messrs. Weston, Klein, Zerbini, and Liebe, a combination never before equalled in the colony ; and the solo pianoforte work has been divided between Madame Tasca, Herv Benno Scherok and Mr. Linden, each taking two concerts. The vocal element has been in some respects an improvement on tho arrangements of the last three or four seasons under the management of 'Mr. Guenett, who allowed raw amateurs, totally incapable of interpreting classical music in a satisfactory manner, to take pnrt in the con ceits. The vocalists this season have been Mrs. Palmer, Madame Christian, Miss Fanny Hristow and Messrs. Himmer and Hartung. Five of th...

MR. COWEN'S REAL OPINIONS. T Since Mr. F. H. Cowen, the late con ductor at the Centennial Exhibition, left Australia considerable curiosity lias been exhibited as to his judgment on the state of musical development in this continent. In interviews and telegraphic messages the colonial public has received of this judg ment various accounts which are not always easily reconcilable or consistent. In this article we are enabled to set out a series of answers written down by Mr. Cowen to questions during thelastfew hours he 'was in Australia. Mr. Cowen's exact language isuseclin every cose, and it will be plainly seen that his opinions are deliber ately,' carefully and most candidly ex pressed. It may be pointed out that Mr. Cowen is fully entitled to speak on the subjects treated. , As a conductor he has rnn^cd from the Promenade concerts at Covent Garden to his present position of holding the baton for the London Philhar monic Society.

The visit of so dis tinguished an artist is a distinct benefit to the community, and ospeoially to our young vocal ists, who are thereby afforded the opportunity of learning what they would under other ciroum Htanoes be under the necessity of going to Europe to do, and of experiencing the high artistic grati fication to bo derived from his ? magnificent rendering of standard works. Mr. Santloy has during his present series of concerts con tributed solos in a varioty of styles, inoluding modern English, represented by Sullivan, Hat ton and Tosti, old English, a stylo ho has made peculiarly his own, and of which ho is tho greatest living exponent, and tho German Lied, exemplified in tho compositions of Mendelssohn and Schubert.
