      Portland Music Loses Fine Star

      Portland lost one of its best-known musicians when Povl Bjornskjold died March 31. Born just 60 years ago in the capital of Denmark, he became a member of the Royal Opera house in Copenhagen. He was on his way to this country to sing with the Metropolitan’s Wagnerian contingent when America declared war on Germany and the Wagnerian repertory in this country went into the discard.

      For a number of years this dramatic tenor lived in California. Of his appearances in Los Angeles one critic said: “In his appearances in this city as soloist with the Los Angeles Symphony orchestra Mr. Bjornskjold proved himself a singer of exceptional voice, fine dramatic feeling, taste and good schooling. One may question if any artist appearing with this orchestra these past 20 years has made a more pronounced success.”

      The Bjornskjold Concert

      The Poul Bjornskjold concert last Sunday at Dania Hall was one of the best that we have heard in years.

      Dramatic Tenor

      What the Press has to say:

      Povl Bjornskjold, the Danish dramatic tenor, provided a lustrous span of vocalism " in a Wagnerian aria " "in I"istant Lands" " from Lohengrin and a contrasting flight of Puccinian melody " the familiar "E luce van le Stelle" from Tosca " he displayed a voice of splendid solidity and strength. tones are resonant and clear, and he produces them with a direct simplicity that disdains any trickery for the sake of effect. " San Francisco Chronicle.

      July 26, 1920.

      Mr. Bjornskjold is beyond a doubt one of the rarest tenors robusto we have heard and we do u lit if he has his superior in this country at present. He is a genuine heroic tenor. He sang this difficult aria with an artistic judgment and an intelligence of phrasing that we have never heard surpassed and hardly ever equalled. Mr. Bjornskjold may safely take his place beside the foremost Wagnerian tenors of the day. " I'aclfic Coast Musical Review, San Francisco. Calif., .luly 31, 1920.

      Povl Bjornskjold, a tenor, the possessor of a glorious voice, was formerly a leading member of the Royal Bjornskjold, whose Opera Company in Copenhagen, where he sang roles in Wagnerian operas. voice is one of the rarest
      we ever heard here " a tenor of baritone richness. There is color and roundness and given with marked dramatic effect " athusiastically applauded and five times recalled; at the succeeding concert eight times a great volume in his tones. The interpretative ability of the singer is unusual, his sense of pitch is good, but it is the organ itself of such emotionalism and lyric phrase with rounded. beautiful and with sympathetic timbre, though of re- fascinating beauty which beauty and exquiholds the attention. " L. A.

      [21]
    • THE MORNING OREGONIAN, WEDNESDAY. MARCH 22. 1922

      Mr. Bjornskjold appeared with
      sucess, previous to the recent world
      war, in grand opera in Copenhagen
      and Berlin and other European cities.
      Shortly after war was begun he
      sailed for this country, where he has
      since sung in concerts. After- the
      present concert tour Is completed, he
      plans to make his home permanently
      in Los Angeles. , .
      [22]
    • BJORNSKJOLD TO SING
      The City Club is to have the opportunity of
      hearing Friday, Povl Borne Bjornskjold, the
      great Danish dramatic tenor. Some months
      ago, The Pacific Coast Musician, a Los Angeles
      musical paper, had this to say:
      "Tenors are rare, good tenors are rarer. In
      the acquisition of Povl Bjornskjold as a resident,
      Los Angeles is fortunate in the possession of a
      singer who takes front rank with Western
      Artists.''
      Los Angeles, however, was unable to held him
      permanently, and he has now established residence
      in Portland, where he has connected himself
      with the Ellison-White Conservatory of
      Music.
      The local papers have given him priase unstintedly
      since his first public appearances here.
      Mrs. Hilton-Turvey, writing in the Oregonian
      of November 9th, 1923, says of Bjornskjold,
      that "the keynote of his singing is power, and
      he is a true exponent of the Wagner modus,
      which has over-demanded of so many voices to
      their hurt. But Mr. Bjornskjold finished his
      exacting programme seemingly as fresh vocally
      as when he started it. - Susie Aubrey Smith in
      the Telegram of the same date says, "Mr.
      Bjornskjold has a dramatic tenor voice of
      unusual power, and is a finished singer. - J. L.
      Wallin has this to say of the same appearance,
      songs)—''were sung with unusual
      dramatic effect and with such success that he had
      to respond with half-a-dozen or more encores.
      While Emil Enna, in the News, "summing up the
      program. - says, "the personal magnetism,
      sincerity of purpose, purity of tone, and flawless
      technique of the artist permitted the audience
      to settle down to an evening of true enjoyment."
      Mr. Alfred Metzger in the Pacific Coast
      Musical Review, says, -Povl Bjornskjold is
      beyond a doubt one of the rarest tenors robusto
      we have heard and we doubt if he has a superior
      in the country at present. - And says that he
      "may safely take his place beside the foremost
      Wagnerian tenors of the day. -
      Surely the City Club is fortunate in securing
      such a singer as soloist. His numbers will be
      given following the principal address on Friday.
      Be sure to come early.
      Don't fail to read the report on the Bridge
      Bond Issue in this Bulletin. You will find it
      clear-cut and forward-looking.
      ARE YOU COMING FRIDAY?
