Does anyone know of any reviews of Dvorak's "New World" Symphony attributed to Cather earlier than the one in the Lincoln Courier (12/25/1897, "World & Parish," pp. 413-414), which describes a performance in Pittsburgh? In his notes for this review, Curtin says that Cather had first heard Theodore Thomas conduct the work in Lincoln in 1894, but the earliest Lincoln performance of the work I can find occurred in Apr. 1895 and featured Thomas and the Chicago Orchestra. The Lincoln Courier has a review of this performance in its 4/20/1895 issue, which also critiques performances of "The Black Crook" and "Shenandoah," but I don't think Cather was contributing to the Courier at that time (or was she?). Cather wrote a piece for the Nebraska State Journal (4/18/1895) about "The Black Crook," excerpted in "The Kingdom of Art" at p. 273, but this excerpt doesn't mention any musical events. It seems strange, given Cather's enthusiasm for the Dvorak symphony, that she wouldn't have written a review of the Apr. 1895 Lincoln performance of it. Any ideas, help, or advice are greatly appreciated!!
