There was a time when to see a piano in a music-loving home was to see a volume of Grieg's piano pieces lying upon it. In the field of short, lyrical, tuneful, and fairly easy pieces Grieg had then no rival. His engaging harmonic newness, his rhythmic folk-music preferences, and his pleasing sentimentalities made a strong appeal to the musical amateur.
But there is much more to Grieg than that. He was not merely a composer of charming little piano pieces, nor of a number of strikingly individual and often very beautiful songs. He wrote a good deal of music on a much larger scale, and it is on his whole output that he must be judged.

This is the first of two talks to be broadcast in connection with Radiolympia. The second will be heard on August 22, the day preceding the opening day of the Exhibition, the most important features of which will be described.
This evening's talk aims to show by means of ingeniously contrived records just how bad reception differs from good. Faulty reception is due generally to one of two causes. In the first place the listener may operate his controls carelessly, and in the second place parts of the set may stand in need of renewal. The records you will hear this evening have been made especially to illustrate these two points.
