Here are four little tone-pictures from the set (originally for the Pianoforte) entitled Woodland Sketches. The fragile beauty of the first has something almost wistful in its tenderness. The Autumn of the second piece has neither the sense of sadness nor the richness of the 'season of mists and mellow fruitfulness' that we know. The impression is of the crisp, tingling freshness of the American 'Fall', that stimulates and invigorates.

Granados wrote four volumes of Spanish Dances for Piano, and this is one of them, arranged by Kreisler for Violin and Piano. The composer shows in places something of the same spirit of abandon as Brahms in his Hungarian Dances.
Enrique Granados was, like Albéniz (another leader among modern Spanish composers), a Catalonian, but was six years younger than he. Their music has some slight similarity, in addition to the sharing of general Spanish characteristics. In these dances, one particular Spanish feature is especially noticeable; the strong dance rhythms are so important that they frequently continue for many bars without any sort of tune.
Granados, in the second year of the war, lost his life through the sinking of the Sussex.

This is the first of a new series of talks, in which humorists of established reputation will give characteristic revelations of their personality. This evening the series will be, very appropriately, opened by Mr. Herbert, who has made himself famous as ' A.P.H.' in Punch, and is also the author of the book of Riverside Nights, the lively revue at the Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith, which, listeners will remember, was broadcast in part on September 23.
