GRIEG'S PIANO MUSIC
Played by JOHANNE STOCKMARR
IN his capacity as a Director of the well-known
Arsenal' team, Mr. Allison can be relied upon to know his subject thoroughly from every angle. The simultaneous return of Football is one of the few permanent consolations for the annual return of Autumn.

GRIEG'S feet were first set on the path of music by his friend Ole Bull, the Violinist, to whose influence we owe a good many exceedingly effective Violin pieces that Grieg wrote. He attempted few large-scale works, and when he used the Sonata scheme, one finds, usually, that he has simply written three very effective and quite simply constructed pieces, very charming, but not essentially built up into one homogeneous work. He is almost always at his best in short lyrical pieces. This Sonata aims, in its First Movement, at greater intensity of feeling than most of his other works.
HEJRE, Kati! (Hello, Katie !) is one of a series of Scenes from the Czardas, the national dances of Hungary. ' Czardas ' originally meant noisy revelry, and it is significant that it is derived from a word that means ' ale-house ' !
The dances are generally divided into sections, a slow portion, the Lassan, being followed by one or more quick measures, called Friszkas. Hejre, Kati ! is constructed after this fashion.
Hubay (born 1858) has taught a great many of the best-known violinists-Szigeti, von Vecsey, and our own Jelly d'Aranyi among others. He is Director of the Royal High School for Music at Budapest.

And a running Commentary on the Cinder Track Race Meeting
At Stamford Bridge
Under the Auspices of the Motor
Track Racing Association,
Relayed from Stamford Bridge
T IKE greyhound racing, motorcycle racing on cinder tracks is a recent importation into this country, and one that has immediately won the enthusiasm of English sport-lovers. The thrills of the ' dirt track,' ghastly in the strange white rays of the floodlights, where the crack riders come roaring and skidding round the hairpin bends, have gripped the Londoner thoroughly, and Stamford Bridge, the home of football and athletics and the London headquarters of baseball, has added another success to its list. Tonight these thrills will be communicated-vicariously-to the great body of listeners who live out of reach of Stamford Bridge.
