At the Theatre Royal the London Dramatic Company revived Harbor Lights with a considerable amount of success. Tho cast was not by any means ag strong or as satisfactory as that engaged during the previous season of its performance at the Princess's Theatrn. Mr. Bucklaw, who took the part of young Kingsley, ? was not to be com pared to Mr. Phil. Beck, and . Mr. Royce simply tomfooled in the character of Jack Dossiter. On Saturday night, the 14th inst., The Silver Falls was produced, under circumstances whioh augur well for its support. The company is only of avorage merit, and the ladies espeoially do not oome up to the standard of excellence looked for at our leading theatre. Nevertheless the first night was a bumper, and the interest of tho publio continues to be manifested. At the Princess's Theatre Miss Jennie Loo was obliged for a few weeks to relinquish her season, and Mr. Chas,...

HOW TO STUDY THE PIANOFORTE. V. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 1 October 1889

HOW TO STUDY THE PIANOFORTE. V. The use of tho podals is . an important mattor in pianoforte playing, with regard to which' con sidorable misapprehension frequently exists among amateurs.- This is primarily due to tho habit of calling the two pedals respectively ' ' loud ' and .'soft,' leading to tho idea that their chief, if not only, use is to produoe those effects. It is true that tho. so-called loud podal allows tho full resonance of the sounding board to bo hoard, and' sets in sympathetic vibration tho strings not struck, thus admitting of tho largest quantity of tone being drawn from the instrument, but its use adds no power, to the percussion ; of the finger. Its office , is . to' sustain' and combine sounds, and to give variety of resonance and tone color, and1 it is possible io produce the .softest and most delicate sounds while employ ing it. The method of indicating the use of tho right hand pedal is frequently arbitrary. Most of tho older composers do not mention- it ? a...
