GLORIOUS ORGAN MUSIC FOR HOME OR AUDITORIUM The golden voice of the Hammond electric organ, glorious reincarnation of the king of instruments, was chosen for personal home use by Nelson Eddy and many other music lovers. It thrills thousands in the San Francisco Civic Opera House and Madison Square Gardens, New York. The majestic music of the Hammond organ will fill the largest auditorium, yet you barely catch its faintest whisper in your living room. The Hammond organ has no pipes, no air pressure system. It can never get out of tune. There is nothing to build in. Simply connect it to a convenient outlet and play' Exclusive With Sherman Clay CHATTER During- the past week several people have told us that GLADYS SWARTHOUT was their favorite soprano on the radio. Anyone who has heard this charming mezzo-soprano on the air or on the screen will admit that she has a glorious voice. She has appeared on the following radio programs: General Motors, RCA Magic Key, Palm-olive, Ford, Hollywood Hotel, Carnation Milk, and Mary Pickford Hour. She has been featured in "Rose of the Rancho," "Give Us This Night," and "Champagne Waltz." We are happy to know that we shall get to see her in person and to hear her sing when she comes to the Paramount Theatre stage as William B. McCurdy's next concert attraction. The date is Wednesday evening, November 17. We hope you play safe and get your tickets early. The seat sale is at the J. K. Gill Co. The novelty of the idea of combining the best parts of his most successful productions during the past six years and making one stupendous stage spectacle was suggested to Billy Rose by the tremendous amount of fan mail received from people all over the country who wanted a chance to see the shows that have made history during the last few years. The result of the idea was BILLY ROSE'S SHOW OF SHOWS which comes to the Portland AUDITORIUM for two nights, November 18th and 19th. Represented in the show are sensational acts from the CASA MANANA at Fort Worth, Texas; the AQUACADE at the Great Lakes Exposition in Cleveland, Ohio ; the MUSICAL CIRCUS OF 1935 from the New York Hippodrome; and a gala array of beautiful girls from the CAFE de PAREE AND BILLY ROSE'S MUSIC HALL. casa manana 1936 n. y. hippodrome casino de paree Fri, 1336 pioneer palace 1937 casa manana 1937 n. y. music hall Auditorium aquacade 1937 MRS.

FINALE FROM 5th SONATA Alexandre Guilmant (In memory of the centenary of Guilmant's birth—March 12, 1837) Guilmant's Fifth Sonata was composed in 1896 and dedicated to Clarence Eddy, who was organist in Chicago at that time. The Finale opens with a Chorale followed by a fugue of a strongly rhythmical character which is beautifully developed. Then both themes are heard together and lead to a magnificent sonorous conclusion. 2. CANTILENE FROM 3rd SYMPHONY Louis Vierne' This is the second movement from the Third Symphony of the great organist and composer, who died suddenly on June 2nd in the midst of a recital he was giving at Notre-Dame in Paris. This Symphony, which is dedicated to Marcel Duspre, was composed by its author during the months of August and September, 1911, while he was a guest at Marcel Dupre's summer country home at Saint-Velery-en Caux in Normandy. The delicate and doleful melody which runs through this Cantilene is exquisitely developed. 3. TOCCATA FROM 5th SYMPHONY Charles Marie Widor (In Memoriam : Charles Marie Widor died on March 12, 1937, the very day of Guilmant's birth centenary.) This movement belongs to the most popular of "Widor's Symphonies for organ. The Toccata, which is widely-known, is a brilliant series of scale figurations based upon a theme of majestic simplicity and employing the entire tonal resources of the organ.

Bach The Fantasy is a series of brilliant proclamations with wonderful harmonies. It is a most interesting structure, very important from the historical point of view. The fugue known as "The great G minor" is based on a virile lively theme which in spite of elaboarte contrapuntal treatment, achieves a freedom unsurpassed by any other work of the kind. 5. COMES AUTUMN TIME Leo Sowerby 6. VARIATIONS ON TWO THEMES FOR PIANO AND ORGAN (Op. 35) Marcel Dupre Marguerite Dupre at the Piano The originality of these Variations lies in the fact that they are built upon two themes instead of one, as the case generally is. Also, instead of being heard in the same key, each variation is introduced in a new key through some modulation, in accordance with its character. The two themes present a strong contrast: the former, sombre and melancholic, is first played on the piano, and the latter, tender and dreamy, on the organ, but both themes are heard subsequently on either instrument in various striking combinations. These Variations are dedicated to the Memory of the great Russian Composer, Alexandre Glazounow, who spent the last years of his life in Paris. A great admirer of Marcel Dupre, he used to come up to the organ loft at St. Sulpice and sit by him on the organ bench almost every Sunday.

ALLEGRO FROM 10th CONCERTO George Frederick Handel Handel wrote many Concertos for organ and orchestra, twelve of which were published during his lifetime. These have been transcribed by Marcel Dupre for organ alone and recently published. The Allegro from the 10th Concerto, on an energetic theme, is of extreme brilliance and animated by intense life. According to the traditions set by Handel himself, it includes a Cadenza which has not been written by the composer but just indicated by him so as to be improvised. In conformity with Handel's habit, Marcel Dupre improvises the Cadenza. 8. UP THE SAGUENAY (No. 4 from St. Lawrence Sketches) Alexander Russell Over the deep mysterious waters of the Saguenay broods the spirit of vanished romance, the solitude of forest-covered mountains. Along the upper reaches, the river rolls past two vast Capes—Eternity and Trinity—which rise like twin Gibraltars on guard. High against the gaunt rocks of Trinity stands a statue of the Virgin, erected by grateful mariners. Beyond are wide waters, sweeping fields reaching to a distant horizon. (Saguenay River, Canada, 1916.) 9. THE BEE (Transcription by Marcel Dupre) Franz Schubert This piece was written by Schubert for the violin but souttids most charmingly on the organ. It is a most suggestive piece of imitative music, graceful and picturesque. 10. INTERMEZZO FROM 1st SYMPHONY IN E MAJOR Joseph Gilles The author is the young talented organist of Saint-Pierre de Chaillot in Paris, a pupil of Marcel Dupre's. This Intermezzo belongs to his First Symphony, which is a recent composition'. Genuine inspiration breaches through the work. Light fancy characterizes this movement, which is graceful, delicate and lively. 11. TWO ELEVATIONS (from Op. 32) Marcel Duprf (a) in E Major (b) in G Major) These two short pieces belong to a group of three "Elevations" which were composed last year. A mystic feeling pervades them and expresses itself through the soothing harmonies of the first and through the musical melody of the last. 12. PRELUDE AND FUGUE IN C MAJOR (Op. 36, No. 3) Marcel Dupre'* This is a recent composition which is being performed for the first time on this concert tour. The Prelude is wrapped in an atmosphere of airy lightness and leads to an exuberant and high-spirited fugue built on a buoyant theme which is developed with great imaginative power. A sustained crescendo reaches a climax of dazzling brilliancy. 13. IMPROVISATION ON SUBMITTED THEMES The composers of the three sumbitted themes will remain unidentified until the actual time of the improvisation. MRS.
