Woods Kone Piano
.Concert Held Here
Is Well Received
Woods Kone, playing to a well
attended and attentive audience
Thursday night, gave a brilliant
performance in what was perhaps
Ediua’s first piano concert by a
real artist. Some of the audience
were experiencing their first piano
To play pure, classical music de
void of any glittering accessories
before a new and unprepared group
is dlflieult for a$ artist, yet from
the opening Beempveii Sonata and
on through-the entire program, Mr.
Kone held his audience with him.
Their reception of his music was
at once spontaneous and cordial.
After the concert, many people, in-
cluding school students securing
autographs, rushed to the front
with demonstrations of approval,
appreciation and encouragement.
Few people realize the years of
practice—8 to 15 hours daily—re-
quired before an artist gains the
technique necessary to render a
difficult piece of music with the
sure touch and smooth easerwith
which Woods Kone'performed. Any
experienced concert pianist will
tell you that the total energy ex-
pended during an evening’s con-
cert Is at least a number of tons,
equal to file energy a boxer ex-
pends upon bis antagpulst at a
prize fight—often leaving the
pianist in a state of exhaustion.
To pronounce a verdict-'upon an
artist takes au authority, of course,

I huf u*li?y critics in authority ure
often Biased and unjust, as nearly
every critic has his own favorite
artist he is anxious to promote. I
would, therefore, like to Deport the
different opinions expressed by the
group of music lovers who attended
Thursday night’s concert, as fol-
His pedalling was remarkably
smooth and unostentatious—there
was nothing flamboyant or demon-
strative in his playing. He made
the moat difficult passages seem
easy. He displayed a modest, eveu
humble self-confidence. , ,
One music teacher commented
[ that his technique at moments was
simply amazing. She also said:
Most pianists play Claire de Lune
too fast. I think he played it just
right.’ Many spoke of bis pleasing
stage personality. „
All in all, everyone seemed to
| agree there was in his playing a
great elemental strength and mo-
ments of remarkable beauty. Edna
is indeed grateful for Woods Kone
and I ithlnk 1 can safely say for
Woods that he is grateful for the
Reception 'given ■ him.—MARIE

The hallmark ot. Hy... Kone’s con-
cert Tuesday was its enjoyabiUty.
It was a thoroughly satisfying eve-
ning of music, and ■ for Everyone
who heard it.
Why was it so? I believe the an-
swer lies in the fact that Mr.
Kone has a complete conceptual
grasp of every piece of music he
plays, and this surety anil certainty
carries over to the listener. You
always have the feeling* that he
ia in complete command of the
music. You feel confidently that
he is pressing his conception of the
music as u whole from the first
note to tile last, to its logic and es-
thetic conclusion, unmistakably and
At uo time did Mr. Kone play
merely musical passages, but he
gave musical efitities. All of this
made the musical extremely listen-
able! 1 left the concert with a
feeling of satisfaction that what
ought to have been done was done
in regard to music, as well as a
feeling of pleasure from the beauty
of the music.
Mr. Kone's approach of calm hut
not dull sureness to tile music,
without questionable aid of body
contortions and undue pyrotech-
nics which we are conditioned to
Seeing on the concert stage, his
eoneepualized rendition—which in-
cludes flawless tempfl, dynamics
and musical statement—all go to
make up of what Is unmlstakeably
noticeable: Mr. Kone gives a defi-
nite strnp of individuality to a con-
