Tascius has a voice of no mean quality, pitched somewhere between bass and low baritone, but seemingly prefers to make his bid for attention on the score of being a "curiosity." In the middle register his tones have volume and good quality. A phenomenal range from deep bass to an extreme falsetto, resembling that of a female impersonator, is interesting as a "freak" performance.
The ten minutes he occupied, however, approached the limit of his welcome. He held attention for that time, but another song would have been wearisome. Tascius offers a promising subject for press agent exploitation. In this way he might attract attention. Unaided, he will probably not go very far toward distinction on this side. The program describes him as an importation from the Wintergarten, Berlin.
