Mr Clement Scott and the Brescians.

The great musical and dramatic critic, the late Mr Clement Scott, was an ardent admirer of the Brescians, and in one of his latest notices in the London (' Daily Telegraph," wrote— f( A company of young and enthusiastic artists. All these young people can do something, and, what is more to the point, can do it well. An auburnhaired young Jady plays with great taste on the violin; a sister sings ballads, and love songs in dramatic, serious, and passionate style: another recites; another plays on the 'cello, all combine as an orchestra, and when they attempt comedy, as they do in several funny and admirable sketches, their success is equally great. The proof of the pudding is in the eating. Morning and afternoon they draw crowded houses; as their programme is varied and extensive, visitors go to see them again and.again." Ashbnrton will soon be able to test Mr Clement Scott's opinion, for the Btescians make their initial appearance on Wednesday first in connection with West's Pictures at the Oddfellows' Hall. The Brescians are a double quartet of solo singers, who are equally at home in instrumental music, forming quite a brilliant orchestra. Their repertoire is extremely varied, ranging from a classic Wagnerian selection to the latest musical comedy lilt.
