'Oi: Heritage." presemed h> Mrs I A IP W. Papendirk The spai 10•;<, home was filled with member.- frtr the business meelinc. at which mar.-, new members were received into :!-.e ciub The president. Mrs Ah:am Hev. introduced the program chairman. Mrs. C N. Timmons., who presented the artist for the cvemre. Jean Coomber Papemr.rk spoke in H char-mini: manner of how music was the means of rirawlnc three persons of different, national;;IP.- toeeth- er when she was on a cruise around the world, and of how all barriers seemed cast aside when she played ••Estrelllta" (Little Star' for the Spanish Rlrl. who MUJR at once In her own language. The words were Spanfth as she .-ana. but the melody was the same to both of them, deepening the realization that thoiiRh music may orlRlnate in one country and be typical of its composer, its people, and Its aRe. still there can be no boundary of land or sea to withhold its appreciation from the entire world. Mrs. Papendirk chose to play the music of European composers. Coming from as far back as the 17th century up to the pre>ent the music atill lives ami always will live in the hearts and lives of Americans— just as much R part of. our heritage as if it had sprung up from our own shores and of value because It represents the best of European culture, refinement and art. which, though boundaries may change and governments are disrupted, will never be lost nor withheld from anyone. - The flrst group, by Johann Sebastian Bach, consisted of a chorale from his 147th cantata. "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring." and "Toccata and Fugue in D minor" for organ, the piano transcription by Tausig. Bach came from a family of 60 famous musicians, dating back to the 16th century, over a period of seven generations. All but seven of. the famous Bachs were organists, cantors or town musicians. At 18 years of age Johann Sebastian Bach wa.« organist at Arnstadt. He was born at Eisenach in 1685, and died in LeipaiS in 1750 Ckapin In the following group of Chopin compositions. Mrs. Papendick played "F major Etude." "Prelude in C minor." "Prelude in A major" anc -Walts in E flat major." Frederic -Francois Chopin was born near-War* «aw. Poland in 1810 and died in __JP«riB in 1849. Before he was nine years old he played a concerto in public, and retired from his public • career at the age of 25. He was called a second afocart, and was the botdaat and proudest poetic spirit of the times, hU writing exquisite and his variety unlimited. "Viennese Waltz." by Friedman! Gartner might be called today popular music, because of its impres- aions. While Ignace Friedman was born in Warsaw, Poland in 1862, he toured widely, was a teacher and a baritone singer in Vienna from 1883 , to 1918. He was a friend of Rubinstein, and following an American tour, he fettled in Tacoma, Wash. "Sequidilla." by Albeniz, who born in 1MO in Catalonia, is a Spanish dance of beautiful inspiration. Albenii was an infant prodigy, cotn- I peeing at the age of seven. He toured. Europe and America in 1880 with Rubinstein. . IflB, the founder of musical impressionism, had no musical Interest until "he was 10 years old. He en r ) tered the Paris Conservatory in 1873, at the age of 11 years. After retirement he lived in Paris. He had a versatile Imagination which produced beautiful sketches painted with the subtlest of color harmonies. From his second book of prelude*. ' the artist played "Bruyeres." her interpretation bringing out the atmos phere of the forest ferns about which the composer had woven his ».el8dy. ,.For her final offering. Mrs. Papen- idick played the second "Rhapsody" "of Liszt, quoting a rhapsody as a "string of melodies arranged with a view to effective performance in pub- Ik but without regular dependence Of one_nart_on_anQther/' Franz Liszt would be 130 years old |lf he were alive today, as October was his birthday in 1811. By the time he was 11 he traveled extensively, and from 1839 to 1847 he was proclaimed the greatest of any age. He diet) in 1U& For an encore, "The Juggler" was )as pleasing a contribution as the artist could have afforded, as her afcill in presenting it was enthusiastically received. Mrs. Papendick played with an enthusiasm and conviction that were delightful and pre. seated her contributions with an in- Itinate charm which immediately D her listeners. Her mastery of .the keyboard and ftne musicianship combine to make her presentations highly artistic and praiseworthy.
