Perfnission being gratefully given hirn; Ema Rubinstein's Berlin debut was given Under the auspices of one of the most celebrated and respected musicians in the world. The influence of these two conductors seems to have become a large part of the young violinist's artist life. She is a red-hot Mahler advocate. She shares Mengelberg's sometimes understandable enthusiasm for the creator of gigantic, music structures and no adverse criticisms can alter her opinion. She thinks in terms of Mahler first, then the others, where symphonic music is don-cerned; she has listened to some of the Mahler symphonies as many as eight times and is convinced that Wagner's fate will in time become that of Mahler's. Erna Rubinstein has made the violin the principle instrument of her art, but one of her ambitions is, to be an orchestral conductor. And when she has achieved this ambition she is going to play Mahler first. When we speak of Erna Rubinstein . and detail her successes, opinions and ambitions we hardly seem to realise that she is only sixteen/and therefore still something of a prodigy. And she has been appearing successfully before the public for the past two or three years. From her very youngest days Erna 'Rubinstein showed the artistic bent. When she was five, she was sent to a private school to be educated. Her studies did not agree with her as well as dancing which was a favorite pastime with the tot and after two years at the school the institution thought that she could make better progress without it. Other schools were tried with equal results until her mother decided to allow her to indulge at length in her love for music She was placed under the tutelage of Josef Ferudi, in her native town who decided because of her seeming frailty that the violin was the proper instrument for her. It was shortly after she began this new study that she appeared at the students* recital with which we opened these paragraphs. She^continued her violin studies, passing every examination with honors and at eleven she became the pupil of Hubay, the violinist and noted composer. \Vhen she left Hubay she was ready to take up seriously a concert career. So, while Miss Rubinstein is still a prodigy as far as her age goes, .she has been sufEoentry'through the musical mill to gain artistic maturity. Another artist in whom Mengelberg takes an active interest is the composer, Larare Saminsky, who spentaome time Continued 9% f*t* 6 eioo she made. So much so that she ready Deen engaged by a phono-^mpany for recordings.
