TONE PICTURE RECITALS Something New and Different Figure JAN CHIAPUSSO Internationally Known Concert Pianist A REDPATH FEATURE ATTRACTION JAN CHIAPUSSO Tone Picture Recitals What is a Tone Picture? When an audience has a great artist on the piano, for instance, many in that audience often wish some explanation of the music would be given. This is seldom done because most artists who play well do not speak well. The talk must be interesting, too, not dry. Jan Chiapusso, internationally known concert pianist, is not only a great artist on the piano, but an excellent and interesting speaker as well. For years his lecture recitals have had a very popular vogue. He felt something more was needed to dramatize these musical explanations. So Jan Chiapusso conceived the idea of Tone Pictures — illustrating musical explanations with beautiful and interesting pictures. To say it in another way: giving an illustrated talk about great music, great composers and great musicians with a piano demonstration. Jan Chiapusso makes these Tone Picture recitals not only unusual musical events, but something fascinating, intriguing and extremely interesting as well. Tone Pictures will help you to understand and like great music. JAVA AND MODERN MUSIC will be the title of one of Mr. Chiapusso's most popular Tone Pictures for next season. It may seem strange that from far away Java in the Indian Ocean should come an influence that is felt in modern music. Not only will Mr. Chiapusso tell about Javanese influence in modern music and show stereopticon views of Javanese art and musical instruments, but he will demonstrate them on the piano in a manner that will definitely establish both the source and influence, and afford several examples of its application. Since Jan Chiapusso came to America in 1916, from Holland, he has made several successful transcontinental concert tours and has won recognition for his art in such places as New York, Chicago, Detroit, Minneapolis, etc. He has also earned for himself an enviable reputation as a teacher. In 1927 he returned to Europe where he was acclaimed in such important music centers as Berlin, Paris, London, Amsterdam, The Hague, and other cities in Holland, Belgium and Spain. Jan Chiapusso as the Critics Hear Him BERLIN (Allgemeine Musikzeitung). An outstanding pianist—a pianist of the grand style—Caesar Franck's Prelude, Aria and Finale were built up in great lines. Debussy and Albenitz were rendered with sonorous and rhythmic refinement. AMSTERDAM (De Telegraaf). A really excellent pianist. He belongs to those who are able to do everything they want to. NEW YORK (New York American). Brilliant, assured and faultless technical disclosures. NEW YORK (New York Globe). His playing proved to be something of a sensation. CHICAGO (Chicago Herald-Examiner). He is one of the most interesting pianists who has played here this season. DETROIT (The Detroit News). Jan Chiapusso is a pianist whose performance occasionally sounds like the outgivings of a symphony orchestra with every choir in eager voice.
