George C. Nash
This is one of a series in which George Nash, the well-known Ulster humorist, takes listeners on a tour of exploration of his attic, a mysterious treasure-house between the ceiling and the roof, where he has found all kinds of odd things from a Japanese earwig trap to a stuffed fish.
Nash has the priceless gift of finding humour in the humblest object, the simplest situation. In his attic he has found a rich mine of inspiration for his talks. A few bits of a grandfather clock revived the story of why he took the clock to pieces one rainy afternoon ; the counterfoil stump of an old cheque-book brought back a flood of entertaining reminiscence.

Since 1934 when Eric Fogg was transferred from Manchester to London to take over the musical directorship of the Empire department, he has had neither the time nor the inclination to compose. This is a pity, for he has shown, notably in the Bassoon Concerto and the String Quartet, that he is a sensitive and very gifted composer.
The Poem for cello and- piano to be heard this evening was written in 1923 and dedicated to Kathleen Moorhouse , who has since become his wife. It is a short, expressive little work with a particularly effective cello part.
Sonata in A minor, Op. 36 Grieg
1 Allegro agitato. 2 Andante molto tranquillo. 3 Allegro molto e marcato
Grieg wrote only one sonata for cello and piano and dedicated it to his deceased brother, whose thoughtful and passionate moods the music is intended to portray. It was written when Grieg was forty-two, and was published in 1885. It is a dramatic work beautifully written for both instruments and very characteristic of the composer's clear and fanciful style.
