Mrs. NORBERG : Lapland'
MRS. IRMA NORBERG is a Swedish lady, and is to give a talk on her native land in this series on December 14. Both these talks are being relayed in Sweden, where they are attracting considerable attention. Mrs. Norberg, besides writing for the British Press, is London correspondent of the Swedish daily paper Göttborgs Handelsoch Sjöfarts-Tidning and of the weekly Vecko-Journalen. She has also written a Swedish Guide- Book to London and the British
Isles, which is to bo published- this winter. She spent part of last summer in Lapland, where she acquired an intimate knowledge of the curious customs and old superstitions of the Lapps. These people, who inhabit the northern part of Sweden, are like North Asiatic tribes in appearance. They are mostly nomads, who count their wealth by the number of reindeer they possess.

THE CANADIAN TRIO
B.B.C.listeners first heard these young people in * a Surprise Item at the beginning of 1929, within a month of their arrival in this country. The pianist, the eldest of the three sisters, was then only fourteen, the violinist twelve, and the 'cellist ten-it is odd that that big instrument is often entrusted to the smallest hands-and thoir playing was an amazement as well as a surprise, so confident was it in its grasp of the music. They had already, more than a year before, astonished such exacting judges as Dr. Bairstow and John Peebles Conn , at the Winnipeg Festival of 1928 : their playing then was acclaimed as extraordinary in its power and technical achievement. Since their first performance at Savoy Hill they have broadcast sevoral times, as well as appearing with signal success in recitals and other concerts, though it hardly needs mention that a great deal of earnest study has been, and is still being, done by all three. But already their playing is of a standard which challenges criticism on its merits and not merely as the precocious work of three very gifted young people.
