Unsigned review in the Brooklyn Eagle

The Sunday evening concert at the Metropolitan was chiefly attractive because of Nordica's advertised appearance. She is a not unfamiliar and an always welcome figure on the platform on such occasions, and the size and enthusiasm of last night's audience were largely due to her presence. In the first half of the programme she gave "Dich Theure Halle," from Tannhäuser, and followed with "The Smallest Flower that Blows," always one of her favorite encore numbers. Her contributions later in the evening included a group of short songs, some in German and some in English, and all sung with her own peculiar skill and with frequent touches of her remarkable dramatic powers. Next to Nordica the most popular feature of the programme was Herr Van Rooy's Lieder singing. Among other numbers he gave "Der Wanderer" by Schubert; "Das Mührad" by Erk, and Reimann's "Phyllis and Die Mutter." In the last of these he catches the popular fancy just as readily as does Bispham with his rollicking lay of young Richard and his courting. The other soloists were Signor Scotti and Mme. Mantelli, both of whom received the usual tribute given by Sunday night audiences, which as a rule are built on the Oliver Twist order. The orchestral numbers were fortunately chosen and finely presented, under the leadership of Emil Paur.
