May 20th.—QUEEN'S HALL.—Pianoforte Recital by M. Rachmaninoff • • s.o

[Five new works by M. Rachmaninoff. The rest of the programme —It includes Debussy's Children's Corner Suite—is familiar, but this does not lessen its interest. M. Rachmaninoff, at his recital two weeks ago, delighted everyone with the freshness of his interpretations. He gave us, for instance, a Mozart sonata, not twisted and exaggerated to suit the extravagant ear of the twentieth century, but rather as Mozart himself intended it to be played.]
