    Miss Doris Barnett, a clever young pianist, who latterly appeared a great deal in Sydney concert rooms, leaving for Berlin two years ago, is now studying in Vienna, and writes contrasting the two famous capitals. "In Berlin the intellectual standard is very high, and the city modern to the verge of Americanism, whilst art is pursued at an amazing rate. Vienna by contrast is the apotheosis of conservatism. Beautiful, old, and full of historical interest, it slumbers peacefully in all but politics, and yet it posseses a charm that the German capital will never know. The fascination lies, no doubt, in that indefinable quality, 'Temperament,' which is so strongly developed in the national character as to make comparison with life in the Paris Boulevards inevitable. Superficially, indeed, the French and Austrian cities have much in common. A host of students has followed Godowsky, the great pianist, from Berlin to Vienna, where his appointment, as Director of the Royal Meisterschule has given fresh impetus to a rather apathetic institution. Sevcik, the Prague teacher of Kubelik, Marie Hall, and others of note, has at the same time assumed control of the violin side, so that the famous conservatorium is waking up. As regards concerts, the Viennese musical round is an education in itself. Two or three fine artists appear every week during the season. Godowsky, Busoni, Sauer, Harold Bauer, Kreisler, Hubermann, Marteau, Heinemann, Meschaert, and the great operatic soprano, Lili Lehmann—in fact, all those magic beings who last year turned icy Berlin into a wonderland of melting harmonies are with us again down here, the conductor, Nikisch, alone excepted. His absence will be partially compensated for by the presence of Weingartner, so popular in London, who is conductor of the Vienna Philharmonic Society's concerts."

    Mr William J. Coad, a violinist who left Sydney for Vienna in October last after a farewell concert, sends some highly-interesting details of his experiences first under Professor Sevcik, who now resides in the Austrian capital, and later under the star player and teacher, Cesar Thomson, in Brussels. In Vienna he met 17 Australians, of whom Misses Moss, Doris Barnett, Daisy Kennedy, Leila Doubleday, Doris Madden, and Mrs Ludlow and her son Percy are known here; and there were others. Quite a colony of American students also occupied the musical field, so that the visitor's German, which he endeavoured to acquire before leaving Sydney, did not prosper. Stranger still, when he moved away to Brussels, though French Is the language, he met many German-speaking students, and Cesar Thomson, though a Belgian, gives his lessons in German. Mr. Coad's account of his own doings shows how much judgment and care are required on the part of an Australian student visiting Europe, for had he not been teaching in Sydney, with already an insight into the art of teaching, and his own requirements, he would have wasted much precious time at Vienna. He states that Sevcik (teacher of Kubelik and many other famous players) urged upon him during five months of arduous work more and more rough technique, in the course of which he played to the master a great list of brilliant repertoire pieces (Mr. Coad quotes at length). His own feeling was that he already knew 80 per cent, of the standard violin-works roughly, and he felt that in this revision work, without getting forward in the technique, he was losing time. Sevicik's system was to bring in the polishing later, but he could not promise when that was to begin, and the whole system seemed to be "in the clouds." Cesar Thomson, on the other hand, diagnoses the requirements of each student, and then prescribes what is necessary from a pile of his unpublished studies (quite as fine as Sevcik's colossal works). He attends to every detall, and no error is too small for correction. Mr. Coad thus feels happy under the new master, and likes Brussels as a place to live in. On his way to Europe the violinist heard at Cairo some Egyptian music in a bright duple rhythm persisting in one key or mode till it merged into a drone, and this so haunted his ear with its quaint originality that he secured several gramaophone records of it to bring back to Australia.

    Miss Doris Barnett, a brilliant pianist of this city, is again in Vienna, studying under Leopold Godowski, the celebrated virtuoso, for whom also she prepares pupils. Her long summer vacation was spent first amongst the giant snow peaks of Switzerland, and then in travelling through parts of Italy. Writing at the end of November, Miss Barnett describes the Vienna concert-season as in brilliant progress: "Saponoff, the Russian conductor, directed the Ton Kunstler orchestra last week, when he made an exhibition of all senses and no sense. He disdains a baton, waves his arms around like catherine wheels, then shoots them out like rockets, indulges in every kind of gymnastic exercise, and no doubt tries to express by these means the effects he would like to get out of the orchestra—but can't! His lowest dynamic is 'forte,' consequently, any attempt at contrast is out of the question, and the slightest crescendo brings about such a babel of indistinguishable noises, that nothing is recognisable. Rachmaninoff, whose 'Prelude' is so beloved of Sydney students, recently played one of his own concertos at a 'Sinfonic' concert. He is a magnificent pianist, with a great deal of poetry in his interpretation, and that, in spite of the fact that he is apparently incapable of playing slowly."

    Miss Lilian Frost has received news from Miss Patience Hardwicke, a one-time pupil of the late Cavaliere De Beaupuis, and afterwards of M. Pintel. Miss Hardwicke latterly was known as a pianist and teacher of "Abbotsleigh," Wahroonga, and made occasional appearances here before her departure for New York for two years' further study under the famous piano virtuoso, Leopold Godowsky. The writer is revelling in her work and its accompanying improvement in her style, and describes the Godowsky method as essentially the "natural" way of piano playing when once mastered. The virtuoso was to hold classes this month in Los Angeles and San Francisco, thus for the first time leaving New York, at which there would be a certain number of performers with an audience of listeners, and the Sydney woman proposes to join them whilst visiting friends in California, thus losing no time during her fast-closing absence (two years in all) from Australia. Miss Doris Barnett, of Sydney, is still on the Godowsky staff.

    London papers to hand refer to a piano recital given by Miss Annette Scammell, a Sydney pianist trained in Stuttgart and elsewhere, who has been residing with her mother in the Empire metropolis during the past decade. This accomplished artist figured here as concert pianist and teacher during the two years before the Great War. One of her appearances was on June 11, 1912, with Mrs. Alexander Gordon (Margaret Thomas) as contralto soloist, when the Governor and Lady Chelmsford were present. Her recital was promoted by Mrs. Macarthur Onslow in aid of the Waverley, Bondi, and Randwick District Nursing Home. Miss Scammell gave this London concert on June 12 at Leighton House, Holland Park, Kensington, that great painter's classic studio, with the instrument on the dais where his models for so many famous pictures formerly posed, assisting to suggest the art atmosphere furthered by her inspiring efforts as a pianist. Groups of pieces by Scarlatti, Haydn, Scriabin, Brahms, and Chopin constituted a most enjoyable programme, and there was much enthusiasm. Many Australians were present, the musical contingent including Miss Violet Balmain, Miss Doris Barnett, Mr. Roy Agnew, Mr. and Mrs. G. Marr Thompson, and others. It may be added that Miss Scammell has been for some years on the teaching staff of the Princess Helena College of Music. ...

    Letters from New York mention that Miss Doris Barnett, the pianiste, daughter of Mr. Leopold Barnett, of Sydney, is making a name for herself in New York, her playing being regarded as quite up to the standard of reputation she gained in her tour through Austria and Hungary. She had received offers of engagements from two concert managers; but, owing to the imminence of war at the time, had not decided whether to accept them. A significant testimony to the estimation in which Miss Barnett's talent is held by her pupils here is the fact that a young Sydney lady has gone to New York to place herself under her tuition.

    It is a good sign of the times when a young native-born artist is able to give a concert and make a nice round sum out of it. This was the fortunate experience of Miss Leila Waddell at the Y.M.C.A. Hall last night. The hall was filled upstairs, as well as downstairs, and the talented violinist carried off as trophies half a dozen bunches of flowers, besides a couple of "floral baskets." As a rule a violinist or pianist is tempted on occasions of the kind to take up half the places on the programme. Miss Waddell was preserved from the sin of vanity last night. Her own numbers were limited to two, and the violinist's only other appearance was in a quartette.
    Miss Waddell has played the Vieuxtemps Ballade and Polonaise many times, but rarely with more effect than on this occasion. She was also successful in the Bach Air for the G string, which was given in response to an enthusiastic recall. Wieniawski's Legende was the second programme item. At this point the player shook her head when asked for more. In the Tschaikowsky Quartette Miss Waddell had as her associates Mr. Frank M. Carter, Mr. H. A. Jaques, and Herr Gerard Vollmar.
    Miss Ruby Rich, Mr Henri Staell, and Miss Doris Barnett, assisted in the instrumental part of the concert. Miss Barnett (pianist) played Rhapsodie by George F. Boyle, who is at present studying in Europe. Miss Emma Sussmilch, Miss Geraldine Rivers, Miss Ethel Liggins, Mr. S. W. Gordon, and Mr. Emil Sussmilch were the singers. Miss Sussmilch successfully introduced "Drifting" (Greig) and "Pensee d'Automne" (Massenet). Recalled for these admirable numbers, the mezzo-soprano added a song by Leoni. Miss Rivers sang "Each Rose" (Aylward), as an extra, and Miss Liggins gave "If I Built a World For You" (Liza Lehmanns) as a supplementary item. The duet, "Betrothed" (Chaminade), by Miss Sussmilch and Mr. Emil Sussmilch, was much enjoyed. Mr. Arthur Mason (who also played an organ solo) and Miss Edith Bunting were the pianoforte accompanists.
