SOME PIRATES AND THEIR REMARK ABLE ADVENTURES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 1 January 1890

SOME PIRATES AND THEIR, REMARK ABLE ADVENTURES. No account of Storm Bay and the Port Arthur settle ment would be complete without a reference to- some of the many tales, which have floated down from a remote past, of the pirates avIio at one time infested the coast. In close proximity to Tasman's Peninsula there is a Pirates Bay, said to have been the home of more than one bold pirate king. It was doubtless the. faint echoes of these tales reaching the ears of the desperate men shut'- out from the ?world at Macquario Harbor and Port Arthur that fired their bosom with the hope of breaking way, and again living the life of free men on the high seas. One of the .most stirring episodes of the kind was the ? capture of the Cyprus in Recherche Bay on the voyage to Macquario Harbor in 1829. Vast interest was excited by the event in England, and the wild and daring adventure was dramatised, having as its hero Captain Swallow, the self-styled pirate king. Swallow had been a fine seaman, who ...

NEW ZEALAND. [FnoBt Our Correspondent.] Dunedin. — The Exhibition was oponed on 25th November, and is naturally, the contre of ? attraction. On the ' opening day; music had a ? prominent part in the ceremonies. The chorus consisted of about 340 voices, the sopranos being the most numerous, and the orchestra numbered about 40. Mr. A. J. Barth officiated as organist, and Mr. A. J. Towsoy as conductor. The ? work selected for' performance on tho occasion . was Cowen's Song of Thanks giving,' composed by him for the opening of tho Melbourne Exhibition. Mr. Towsey had ovidently carefully rehearsed the music, and it was rendered in a generally acceptable manner. The bassos, however, seemed to be the weakest part of the organisation, and might with advant a'go bo reinforced. I will send you particulars 'of the couoerts given,, both choral and orchestral, when I next write. A small' operatio company headed by Miss Seymour and Mr. Walsh have been giving per formances in the smallor towns, bu...

BEN TROVATO. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 1 January 1890

;'.;.?? BEN TROVATO. -£i ?- \ % ^ An incident regarding the production of Ros-. sini's opera, Otello, in Rome, is worth recording. It would appear that the Romans did not appre ciate unmitigated tragedy, and at the first por- ' formance showed disapprobation of the original termination of the opera. Consequently, at tho socond representation the oatastropho was. entirely removed. The Moor seized the fatal' pillow, but on Desdemona exclaiming. 'What; dost thou, miserable man ? lam innocent,', ho asked, 'Is that really true ?' and, receiving the - reply, 'I swear it, brought the ? lady to tho footlights, and sang with hor a lively duet taken from Rossini's Armida. The Roman version of the finale was in voguo as late as 1823. ' Curious musical advertisements arc frequently met with, both in English, colonial and Ameri can papers.

ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 1 January 1890

ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. Newcastle.— Your part song gives evidence of tnleiit for composition, but there aro pianos where want of experience is observable. First of all, tho . compass of the soprano is rather extonded, from O to 1' sharp. The episode in I1' is too long when con- ' traated with the number of bars in the original key , that precede and follow it, being 24 to 16 and 20 respectively. Tho arrangement of the words is' occasionally awkward, in the fourth line the ropeti- ? tion of tho word 'lady' has no meaning. Har monically thore is little to take exception to. The ? last chord of bar 9 aiul first of bar 10 are essentially ? the same, and tho as'contof the seventh in the tenor is f scarcely atoned tor by its appearanco in the' soprano in the second chord of bar 10. The primary objection is tho weakness caused by nntici- - pating tho harmony of an accented beat. In tho , seventh bar of tho V major episode tho appearance of ; the diminished 6th on tho tifth beat is weak....
