Act III-The Summit of a Rocky Mountain (The Valkyries' Rock)
Characters in order of appearance :
Conductor, CHARLES WEBBER
THE third act begins with the stirring Ride of the Valkyries, as the Warrior Maidens gather on their grim rock. Each of them has a slain hero across her saddle whom she is bearing to Valhalla, but when Brunnhilde, the last to come, reaches the rock, it is Sieglinde whom she is carrying. She hides Sieglinde in the forest, and then Wotan hastens to the crag in angry pursuit of his disobedient daughter. The sisters plead with him to spare her, but he bids them go, and the last part of the act is a splendid. duet between the god and Brunnhilde. Gradually she recalls his former pride in her, and prevails on him to let her punishment be less severe than ' he had first designed. She is to be laid to sleep on the summit of the rock with a great fire about her, so that none may come to her save a hero who knows no fear. The opera comes to an end with Wotan's farewell as she is laid to sleep.
By FANNY DAVIES
FANNY DAVIES ' playing makes it abundantly clear that she is among the fortunate few who cannot grow old. But the fiftieth anniversary of her first appearance on the concert platform is not very far off, and she is among the last great artists who link our times with the age of Schumann and Brahms, Joachim and Piatti. Schumann himself, of course, she could not know (he died five years before she was bom), but the others were proud to claim her as friend and colleague. With Joachim and Piatti, she did much to make Brahms' chamber music known when it was new. She went, at a pupil, to Madame Schumann-at a time when the composer's widow was one of the foremost pianists and teachers of the world, full of enthusiasm for her husband's art and ideals-and has all along been acclaimed in England as the authorized
. apostle of Schumann's music and what it stands for. Not that she plays his music only ; she is as surely at home in the music of every ago and clime as she is in all the lands of earth where true art is held in honour ; if she has specialized in any other direction, it has been in the encouragement she has shown to our own composers.
