Figure Edmand Lichtenstein (Gerome Helmont) Violinist EDMOND LICHTENSTEIN, made a trans-continental tour of America in 1898–99, receiving high tribute from both Press and Public. After that tour he then studied for a few seasons with Ovide Musin. He then studied five years with Cesar Thomson in the Brussel's Royal Conservatory of Music, graduating with the first prize with distinction. From there Lichtenstein toured through Russia as Soloist of the Helsingfors (Finnland) Symphony Orchestra; he was then called to Munich, Germany, to fill the position of Concertmaster of the Kaim Orchestra, of Munich. This position Lichtenstein held with great success for two years. Lichtenstein is now located in Detroit, Mich., where he has a large class, and will accept Concert and Recital engagements. Excerpts from criticisms received in America and Abroad. The young violinist who interpreted the concerto, Mr. Edmond Lichtenstein from Brussels, proved himself to possess an immense knowledge of the violin—well formed sonorous tone and a graceful, delicate and strong manner of bowing.— The Reval News, Russia, May 7th, 1903. Mr. Lichtenstein remarkably talented—a brilliant future.— LaFederation Artistique, Brussels, July 8th, 1902. Mr. Lichtenstein was crowned with distinction immediately.— La libre Critique, Brussels, July 6th, 1902. He was greeted by a strictly music-loving audience which showed its appreciation of the young mastei's interpretation of an unusually well selected programme—it was a genuine and well earned triumph for the young master. He made a Seattle audience enthusiastic.— The Seattle Post Intelligencer, Dec. 22nd, 1898. He is always refined and is absolutely free from the mannerisms that artists sometimes assume to curry favor with audiences—he stands on his merits alone and asks the approbation that the good music he brings forth on his violin deserves.— Portland, Ore., Daily Times, Dec. 31st, 1898. Lichtenstein is a wonder, a genius.— The Evening Bee, Sacramento, Cal., Jan. 16th, 1899. Even those who expected the most were scarcely prepared for the revelation—his tone was strong and sonorous and thrillingly vibrant, while the brilliancy of his execution was little less than marvelous.— The Evening Post, San Francisco, Jan. 18, 1899. The solo work of Edmond Lichtenstein aroused the audience to enthusiasm.— Cincinnati Post, Dec. 2nd, 1898. The audience was large and the enthusiasm manifested showed the thorough appreciation felt for the work of the young Ysaye.— Los Angeles Herald, Jan. 29th, 1899. Not since Ovid Musin was greeted at Elmira College some ten years ago, have Elmira music lovers probably been so thrilled with the notes of the violin as they were last night when Lichtenstein played.— Elmira Evening Star, Nov. 2nd, 1898. He is a musician of the highest type, the embodiment of a great spirit, one in whom the soul predominates over the body and the instrument and technique becomes in the highest sense the means to an end and not the end itself.— The Province, Vancouver, B. C., Dec 24th, 1898. He has the very right hand and wrist of Cesar Thomson, his old Master whose place he took last night—his style clear-cut and bold authoritative without affectation, and he draws a delightful tone.— Detroit Free Press, March, 22nd, 1907. His tone was clear and clear-cut, and of a beautiful smoothness strongly suggestive of his Master, Cesar Thomson. He shows an emotional temperament greater than Thomson, however, and qualities that will make him a favorite with any audience— Detroit Saturday Night, March 23rd, 1907.
