MacCarthy, Maud



Violinist; born at Clonmel, Ireland. Her teacher from the age of eight to fifteen was Sefior Arbos. She made her debut at London in 1894 very successfully. She then studied two years more without appearing in public during that time. Since 1896 she has played at concerts in London, at the Saturday concerts at the Crystal Palace, and has made an extensive American tour with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the New York Philharmonic Society. Her playing shows careful training and no effort. She has mastered the violin classics from Beethoven to Tschaikowsky, and her small hands in no way hinder her power or technical skill.
