1924 Mary Tris Pianiste Figure Mary Tris Pianiste 1178 Clarence Ave., Oak Park, Ill. Phone: Euclid 4161 M. MARY TRIS, American Pianiste MARY TRIS, Pianiste MISS TRIS is a brilliant young Chicago pianist—a pupil and graduate of the late William Sherwood. At her professional debut some years ago she played the Godard Concerto, and both in that work and in many other appearances has proven herself a pianist of splendid charm. She joined the faculty of the Sherwood Music School of Chicago, Illinois, later on entering the concert field. Gifted with an abundance of temperament, her technic is by no means mere mechanical skill, but is a means to the production of marvelous tonal and rhythmical effects. PRESS COMMENTS Miss Mary Tris, a former Sherwood pupil, who has been in the concert field for several years, plays with great vigor and virility, while at the same time she has full control of softer graces and mellowness of tonal quality. The 'Cello Etude of Chopin was given a thoroughly poetic reading at her hands; the Nocturne, Op. 3, No. 2, was made silvery sweet and musically pure, while the Schytte Sonata, Op. 53, was the medium through which she easily proved herself mistress of bravoura technic and dramatic effectiveness. This Sonata is a work of the greatest size and importance. It requires every kind of technic for its proper presentment and it is built along such broad lines of musical thought that its interpretation requires experienced prowess of the most pronounced order. Miss Tris made its First Movement broadly dignified and clearly musical, its Second Movement was a veritable song without words, and in its Finale she poured out a wealth of passion and a distinctiveness of style which completely captivated her listeners.— Music News, Chicago, Illinois, Mlle. Tris, who acted as a most sympathetic accompanist throughout, also gave excellent account of herself in the Schubert-Tausig Marche Militaire. She has a breezy touch, swift and light, yet also masculine in emphasis. The personality was most pleasing.— Kansas City Journal, Kansas City, Mo. The piano solo, the stirring, martial composition by Schubert-Tausig, Marche Militaire, which is at once one of the most popular of great masterpieces and most difficult of execution. Mary Tris proved in playing this March that she is qualified to rank among the best pianists. Miss Tris graciously played a beautiful encore selection. Her work as an accompanist was at all times remarkable. She played brilliantly, yet always worked in sympathy with the artist whom she accompanied.— Ashland Times-Gazette, Ashland, Ohio.

Later she graduated from the Sherwood Music School and although only twenty years of age, joins the faculty with a splendid record as a teacher.

They rejoice in her achievements and wish for her a successful career.— Burlington Hawk-Eye, Burlington, Iowa. MARY TRIS, American Pianiste The Allegro brioso from the Sonata in B flat by Schytte opened easily and was exceptionally well developed. Miss Tris won the admiration of her audience. Her graceful and easy touch, combining with an ardent love for her instrument, an interpretation ever bordering on the romantic, touched with a delightful sadness, combined with qualities of head and heart to make the piano music enjoyable.— Taylor Daily Press, Taylor, Texas. If Mary Tris had appeared in the piano solo only, with the dainty and melodious encore by Nevin, she would have charmed and convinced the entire audience of her high attainment, the beautiful touch, clear, strong technique and interpretive power, but when in addition to those one considers the exquisite accompaniments with which she supported and enhanced the beauty of the entire program, then indeed does she merit the highest praise for her true musicianship. Solo artists are indeed fortunate in such accompanying.— Nampa Leader-Herald, Nampa, Idaho. The pianist, Miss Tris, is one of the very best ever heard here. Her strength in execution, her careful attention to technique, her sympathetic understanding of her author's theme and lastly, the real brilliance of her performance instantly won her the appreciation of her audience as it proved her capability.
