Scope and content

This is an arts periodical which appeared weekly during the theatre season. Of particular interest in this musical journal is a lengthy biographical article on Adolph Brodsky who was appearing in two chamber concerts in Odessa in the forthcoming week, on 25 and 28 March. Brodsky was born in Taganrog on 21 March 1951. He was a pupil of Hellmesberger in Vienna. 1868-1870 Brodsky played in the the Vienna opera theatre. He then went on successful concert tours in his native Russia. He then taught at the Moscow Conservatoire from 1875-1879 and in 1879 he for a time directed the symphony concerts in Kiev. The article traces Brodsky's career: premiering the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto in 1881 [not 1882 as stated in the article]; teaching and forming the Brodsky Quartet at the Leipzig Conservatoire; the years in New York and finally in Manchester. A photograph on the front page shows Brodsky holding violin and bow as he stands beside a music stand. An advertisement for Brodsky's two chamber concerts appears on p.7: on Tuesday 25 March 1903, Brodsky, A.P. Fidelman [a former pupil of Brodsky and now professor at the Odessa Conservatoire], I.V. Perman and Vulfius played Haydn's Quartet no.5. in G major and Schubert's Quartet in D minor; between these two items, Brodsky played the Devil's Trill, by Tartini. The other concert on Friday 28 March 1903, comprised Schumann's Quartet op.41 no.1 in A minor, Bach's Double Violin Concerto, played by Brodsky and Fidelman, and Beethoven's Quartet op.59 no.1 in F major. These were held in the Music Society Hall in Odessa. The journal is dated 22 Mar 1903.
