Mark Hambourg's Visit to Ammanford. The appearance of Mark Hambourgâthe world-renowned pianist-at the Pa!ace Theatre on Saturday next marks the most historic and important musical event in the history of the Principality, and it is to be hoped that all who have the cause of music at heart (and there are hundreds up and down the Valley) will take advantage of the magnificent treat in store. A gentleman, who has visited Ammanford in the capacity of a professional musician, was much impressed with its musical audi- ences and fine hall accommodation, and he suggested to Mr. J. F. Younge, who is arranging a series of Hambourg Concerts in Wales, that a Recital be given at Amman- fOId. Truly a fine compliment! The enter- prising proprietor of the Palace Theatre, Mr. Bosisto, with commendable promptness, de- clared himself ready to associate his valuable influence with the project, with the result that at 5 p.m. on Saturday next, December 7th, Ammanford will be honoured with the presence of a Master Pianist whose personality and renown are sufficient to fill the largest Concert Hall in London. The writer of this short article heard Mark Hambourg some 18 years ago, when he was known as the great Russian Pianist, and while he has heard in the meantime some of the greatest pianists of the day, the musical impression made upon him then has obscured all the others. How one is still haunted with the phenomenal tech- nique, contributing as it did to the divine inter- pretations of the classics that then constituted the programme. All who seek to know the highest ideals in Musical Art should not miss the rare occasion on Saturday. Pianoforte students (and their number is legion) will be given an opportunity of know- ing what their instrument is capable of ex- pressing. Parents of children learning the instrument should not deny them a musical experience that will be lasting and life-long. The recital has been timed at an hour that will give facilities of train service up and down the Valley. If this venture meets with the success it deserves, it is quite POssile that other stars will find Ammanford a convenient centre to visit, and thus bring Ammanford and district, as well as the Amman Valley, within the range of musical blessing enjoyed by such places as Cardiff and Swansea, &c. Let all turn out and give the great artiste a bumper reception.
