Brilliant Success of a Notable…


Brilliant Success of a Notable Welsh Singer. We are happy to record the great success achieved by Miss Sara Davies (Llinos Fach), a native of Trecastle, last Tuesday, June 14th, at the Bechstein Hall, London. The large hall was crowded with a very fashionable audience. The talented young singer had chosen for her programme, songs of the most difficult and exacting nature by the greatest classical composers. The famous" Shadow Song from Meyerbeer's "Dinorah," which is acknowledged to be one of the most difficult scenas ever written for a high soprano, was sung with excep- tional brilliancy and ease. The audience applauded with the greatest enthusiasm, and would not be satisfied until she consented to sing again, and as an encore she sang Grieg's "Solvéeg Song." Mozart's beautiful aria,' Batti, batti bel Masetto' (Don Giovanni), was sung with perfect expression. Indeed, each song that Miss Davies sang was rendered with great individuality, which not only shows her power to comprehend the meaning of the composer, but also to inter- pret it to the fullest extent. Miss Davies also sang two delightful songs composed by the Marchioness of Tulli bar- dine, and who accompanied brilliantly on the piano. Miss Davies finished the concert with a charming rendering of the Welsh air "Clychau Aberdyfi," the effect being enhanced by the accompaniment being played upon the harp.
