THE QUEEN'S LOVE OF MUSIC. Queen Alexandra's favourite recreation is music, a taste which is shared by her sister, the Empress Marie of Russia, who is to he her Majesty's guest for the next few weeks. Not ony is the Queen a fre- quent attendant at the Opera, but whilst in London, scarcely a day goes by that she does not hear some of the compositions of the great composers. Th-s enthusiasm for music is shared by many people in Society, but not perhaps to the same extent as formerly, and private musical parties are not nearly so numerous or popular as they used to be, skating and other amuse- ments have more or less taken their place. The pianist, unless he or she is quite a phenomenon, is almost a drug in the mar- ket. The majority of people do not care for technique when it is too marvellously developed, and the violinist, or the singer is preferred, but concerts, whether public I or private, do not attract as they used to, and very few of them can be said to be genuine successes.
