Ote Bull at a Musician?Niagara?Solitude of the Prairie t. A regular criticism on Ole Hull, at the present moment, would be extremely ridiculous, and, very properly, could be compared to " soup after des sert. To write, therefore, a regalar criticism on Ole Bull, ia as far from iny thoughts as the wish to eat soup alter my dessert, or to render myself willingly ridiculous. But, after all that has been said during the lam twelve months, it may not be out of place to offer some remarks on the hero of the late musical reign?his career, without a pa rallel?his success, aud the interest it has created throughout the country. The many opinions? professional and unprofessional?although, indi vidually, hardly deserving more than a pussiug notice, an J, in many cases, not even that?are, notwithstanding, entitled to consideration on the whole, siuce there may be drawn ont of them some inferences?partly favorable, partly unfavorable? illustrating the question cf public taste in America, which of late has acquired some importance, or. as the French would say : has left the domain of the "petit* /ourtt/iv.r" for that of the " grands /ournaux." aud Iihs been elevated to the dignity o! a " premier Paris " Oa no living artist, with the exception of Rossini, there has been written so inuch pro and contra ok on Ole Bull. Since hid first abearance in the thorny rose-gardm ot artis<ic<il lile, he has been alternate ly extolled and vilified ?elevated and depressed? now a deini-god, now a Robert Macaire. He has been a firebrand?an apple of discord and conten tion flung wiih a Faixiian i;uu-like violence into the uproarious camp of musical harmony and social disharmony. It is, indeed, fortunate that the quar rel concentrated itself in Ole Bull, and that the rival faction of the Gapulets had 110 Tybalt to op pose the Ronieooithe Montagues. Blood and strife, broken minim.*, disabled ciotchets and maimed quavers might have been the consequence , nay, a war like that of ihe Gluckists and Piccinists might have been renewed in the nineteenth century.? The exploded objei tioi.s to the Pagauinian school were reiterated- the Jlageolet was pronounced n humbug, the pizzicato a claptrap, and the spianato a never mind what, for the sule purpose ot cryiug down Ole Bull, or as the Germau proverb says, "they hit the bag, but meant the nss." And it cannot be denied that they partially succeeded. Ole Bull's concerts in Europe were attended with different, and indifferent success. In Prague, Berlin, Hamburg, and England, he was well re ceived ; in Vienna, France, and other places, he comparatively failed. In Pesth, he met Vieux tcmps. Rival factions quarrelled there too, but there was no blood shed. He has been furiously assailed by musicians and musical critics, who drew the public after them, and away from him. The same spectacle was presented in America. Musicians are nenrly all against him; partly out of jealousy, partly from conviction. But here they did not prove sufficient authority with the public, who manfully stood by him; nay, the pro I fessioual attacks were, perhaps, the principal rea 1 son of his astonishing success with the unprofes sional majority. Although the mot of a leading critic, who called I him the holy ghost of that school, whose father was I'aganini, and whose ton is Sivory?(com monly called monkey Puganini)?will not be generally endorsed; even the odor of blasphemy it | carries in itself could be perfumed away, no body will deny that Ole Bull is out* of the greatest genuises which ever cxisied. The violence wiih which he has been attacked is sufficient proof of his being ail out ot the common way artist. The bad is pasted over with contcmpi, me diocrity is not deemed entitled to conrider ation; the good alone? absolute or relative superiority?deserves the discussion it culls forth. If the superior ity be absolute, discussion is soon brought to an end ; the temporary shadows giving way to lasting light. If the superiority be relative or partml, that 's if Ihe light is not in tense enough to eclipse and drive awuy the sha ditws, each of thein gains a varying ascendancy.? Discussion follows in the wake of that aecendmicy, and is alternately triumphant to he vaiquishtd? vanquished to he triumphant, till ut last both iiartiet grow weary. It follows cut of it, that Ole Bull is I something like an irregular musicsl beauty?the more pi<juar\t through th's irregularity?a great aitist, but not entirely free ot" faults?faults, visible to the gh/.e of the musician, but ingeniously uud artistically hidden from the less sharp intuition ot the public at large. Nobody isperlect in this frail world. Ole Bull is, in my opinion, an original in eveiy respect. His general appearance, the structure of his body, his ideas, musical and social?his lan guage, but particularly his savoir fairt, are emi nently original and unique. Although an imitator of I'aganini, he is sometimes original inlnstmi tation. Vieuxtemps, with the ojienheartednese which is inseparable from true genius, said to me. J " Sivory est plus sage, mais Ole Bull a des< hoses a lui (Sivory is more correct, hut Ole Bull hits ' things proper to him alone.) But the fact itself ol being an imitator of Pagamni, although not a slavish one, has proved a strong weapon in the hands of his opponents, the orthodox musicians. With them, absolute, not relative originality, is a conditio tine i/ua non in one who wishes to he classed amongst the magnates of the retlm of mu sic. Rossini, for instance, was the best abused man na !<>??? no imiiatoif flimurosa and Flora vanti; aud if his pnrtizaus claimed for him that distinction, to which his many original qualities entitled him, they were foon reduced to silence with the just opposition of his mumnal delin quencies? u silence which remained undistuibed till he atoned for them with the partition of Guillaume Tell Donizetti, wiih all his indis putable merits, his inexhaustible fund ot melody, his facility ot writing, his perfect knowledge < j the voice, tbe skill with which he steers through the rocks of a one sided system of vocalization, is treated by the orthodox with contempt, winch can only cease when he will be on the highroad to originality, which he now tries to approach by means of short cuts and crosses through the varies fields of musical invention. If some of the reproaches made to his particular style of playing are not entirely without grounds, he is on the other side without a superior in inan) points of mechanical execution. A grateful bow ing, a rieat, although not a powerful intonation, a stupendous velocity in past-ages, an ex pression which rather savors of German sim plicitv than of French mannerism, an astonish ing facility in overcoming enormous difficul ties, will always ensure him the admiration of everybody, and he will always continue to be the idol of the public at large, who do not much care about the difference between ends and means If other players excell more in the legato, he tuliei ta revandu in the ttacrato, wkich never bus been given with a more dazzling brilliancy. Ol this he is perfectly aware; he avoids the one uud intro duces the other, whenever there is an opportunity or u possibility of doing it; if this opportu nity does not present itself, he goes in search of it, and very seldom fails to find it; lie grasps it then with more or lets vio lence, according to the more or leg* difficulty lie had in finding it. Hence, not unfrequcntly, arise* hr abuse of it. Moderately used, ihe staccato re sembles the smile of un innocent beauty i im moderately, it is the loud laughicg of a royitette This abuse of the staccato, coupled with a little thinness of tone, is his only principal delect. Hi flirts too much with bis instrument, but it is a ver> clever and amusing flirtation. One must be ver) sly, indeed, to find it out; and il one in twentj happens to do it, he cries holla ' prides himself on his discovery, boasts of having found out the wol' from under the sheejvskin, sets to msking rroee. lytes, who are easily found after the first tickle it over. Now begins the demolishing ; hut ()!? Bull laughs at it; he has taken bold ol the public, anc console* himself with having on his side the quen tity if not the quality. ."Since the production of his latt composition* The Falls of Niagara" and "Solitude ol the Prairies"?public attention baa been more drawn to his merits as a composer. Ole Bull decidedly ha beautiful and original ideas, bearing the stamp ol genius; but he isless happy in connecting them into the formation of a symmetric whole. His compon tions are a little " deroutuet," in a very excellent and open hearted muaieian said to me on his las concert. They are rather pretty ritournellei that finished airs. I call them brilliant concert -pot pour rit. He begins to work out a very stri king and orignal idea. He makes some pact i in ita illustration, stop* after a few bars, fall." into a dazzling concatenation of passages whicl could make a capital study,?goes abruptly fron the major into the minor, lr?m the minor to th> major, aud when least expected, leaves off with i point d'orgue, as in the first part of hisconcerto li V He introduces nnotber idea, pursues the sarin plan ; with hasty strides he approaches the end, ar? now begin his villi mortah Up goes the bo ?, down goes the bo*,?untie right, to the left.

Thia kind of writing is undoubtedly very orifi nal, in to far as nobody has done it before him. bo likewise in his instrumentation. Meyerbeer and other great composers, have produced aeton isnniic ?-Hr-cts in accompanying a bass voice with trombone alone. Ole Bull, always original in his imitations, has applit d the same accompaniment to a violin solo, as in his adagio doloroto The ef fect is novel uud striking, but will not find many admirers amongst those who are acoustomed to the usual concerto-orchestral accompaniments.? simiUr combinations have beeu resorted to in the instrumentation of the " Falls of Niagara." But why this composition has been so coldly received," on the first night,1 cannot understand It latrue it is ot Ole Bull a weaker compositions, not absolute ly but relatively. He intended to intinduce it as a descriptive violin concerto tymphonia, and in this he necessarily must fail. The concerto spoiled the sympfionia and the aymphonia did not improve the concerto, which ia, in many respects, the fault ot the bad orchestra. He, himself, played tt admirably, with a wonder ful perfection of mechanism. The individual ideaa are beautiful, but they do not follow each other properly. How, for instance, can be explained the introduction ol " Long time ago." In looking on Magara.the nnnd is necessarily lost in the contem plation of the miracle; very few will think of aome tiling else than of the work, unless a religious feel ing call upon us to adore its Almighty Creator. I repeat it, 1 cannot explain to myself its lukewarm reception. The New York audiences now making Iturt amies in musical taste, have extolled to the tkjes woree compositions; and I really think it waa merf ^chancp," as the ?? Solitude ol the Prairies.?? which is much less comprehended after a first hearing, met with the most enthusiastic applause. Should the silence on one side, and the applauae oni the other, really proceed from a sound musical judgment, it would be a very complimentary cri tenon of American taste. The " Niagara" la in different, and the " Solitude" is a composition of which the poet of a mother's prayer can be proud. On Ole Bull's success in America, I have only one word to say. He is with Sivory, who haa only made his appearance since the last three years, the only successful disciple of Paganini. The pecu mritiea of the I'aganinianstyle are eminently calcu lated for the ear ot the public.
