Unsigned review in the Brooklyn Eagle


Although he was on the programme only as the leader of the orchestra, Nahan Franko was the particular star at the Metropolitan Opera House last night. The occasion was the last of the regular Sunday concerts, and, owing to the dispersal of the Grau Opera Company, the only members of the troupe available for the song numbers were Mme. Schumann-Heink and Miss Fritzi Scheff. Mr. Franko completed yesterday the twenty-fifth anniversary of his entry upon an active musical career, and in recognition of this fact, the members of Mr. Grau's company and the employees of the Metropolitan Opera House presented him with a silver salver and a check for a considerable sum. The presentation was made by Treasurer Max Hirsch. Mr. Franko got a lot of flowers as well. In addition to Mme. Schumann-Heink and Miss Scheff, Mme. Sophie Traubmann emerged from her retirement to sing a song or two. She gave an aria from the "Magic Flute," which was admirably done and applauded to the encore point. Mme. Schumann-Heink's Wagner and Arditi numbers were supplemented, of course, by the "Drinking Song" from "Lucrezia Borgia," and by other less popular selections. The audience was moderately large and quite up to the standard of Sunday night assemblages in the matter of enthusiasm.
