Mme. Sembrich Receives Almost an Ovation With Other Artists

It was a fine programme that was arranged for Conductor Seppilli's Metropolitan House orchestra last evening at the Sunday concert, and so full was the interior that the places in the rear, formerly occupied by patrons standing, was packed with auditors in chairs. The soloists were Mme. Sembrich, Campanari and Salignac. The occasion, as it turned out, was almost an avotion to Mme. Sembrich, who appeared in two numbers, though the audience clamored long and incessantly for more. Her first appearance was in Mozart's "Il re Pastore," and she was recalled many times. She took occasion to shake hands with Mr. Franko, the leading violinist, for his excellent accompaniment in florid passages of the song. Her singing of Johann Strauss' "Voce di Primavera," with its waltz movement, however, brought out the storm of applause. The audience seemed determined that she should sing again. But Mme. Sembrich smiled and shook her head, and even continued to smile when the attendant at the stage door, on one of her entrances, shut in the train of her white satin dress and a long strip of beautiful lace was ruined. Campanari sang very acceptably "Charite" by Faure, and a serenade, by the orchestra leader. A tarantella by Rossini was Campanarl's last number and his fire and tripping delivery brought applause. Salignac sang two numbers, the latter, "La Veritable Manola," being received with continued applause. Fritz Kreisler wielded a magic bow in his playing of "Non Piu Mesta" by Paganini. His other numbers were an andante religioso by Vieuxtemps. and "Scene de Czarda." by Hubay, The orchestra won the largest applause in "Dance of the Hours." from "La Gioconda," by Ponchielli, and the quaint "Dance Macabre," by Saint Saens.
