The noted critics in eiery prin

him nnd have given him their
highest mead of praise. ,
Percy Grainger, the cheerful,
sunny composer- the sane, poetic
pianist 1.1 without question on
of tin' most commanding person
alities in the musical world today,
P PEOPLE Bometimes are listening to
music, and sometimes taking part in it,
we Bhall liavo better musicians, much
keener listeners and greater enjoyment
Mr. Grainger thus epitomized for me his
idea of music at its best.
"Why," I asked, "do you require that
people take part in music as well as listen?"
Aids to Musicianship
"I feel that quicker, clearer understand
ing comes that way," he replied. "If a man
plays a bit himself, he better appreciates
what the musician is trying to do. But just
as making music sharpens our wits and our
taste for hearing it, so listening to fine music
feeds and stimulates our musicianship."
' 'Then surely our Duo-Art Pianola is quite
your ideal of a musical instrument for the
home," I suggested.
"Yes quite," said Mr. Grainger, "lam
deeply interested in the Duo-Art. I play it
rt3 a piano, and sometimes as a Pianola.
Does the idea of a Pianist using a Pianola
seem odd to you? Well, you know, 1 am
thinking of doing some compositions for the
Pianola. From tho viewpoint of the com
poser, it is a very interesting instrument,
with perhaps broader possibilities even than
"And, of course, we do not lose sight of
the third faculty of the Duo-Art. When I
am en tour, my mother may have it to re
produce my records, and. for the time. I am
with her in spirit the Duo-Art reproduc
tions are so vividly like my playing.
"On tho whole, the Duo-Art is quite won
derful indeed one of the greatest marvels
I have found in your remarkable America."
"You sincerely think that the Duo-Art
reproduces from your records bo accurately
as to satisfy one eo well qualified to judge
critically as your own mother?"
"Yes, surely. And when I myself hear
the records which I have played at my best
and then edited and corrected until they ure
my fullest musical expressions, 1 think to
myself 'Ah, on tho days when I play like
that I am very well pleased.' "
"This is a fine thing you arc saying for
tho Duo-Art, Mr. Grainger, tell me, will
you go on record with the statement that
tho Duo-Art actually reproduces your play
ing even In such subtle things as gradations
of touch and tone quality?"
Valuable to the Artist
"That is a very legal sounding query, if
you understand what I mean," replied
Grainger, smiling "yes, I think the Duo
Art simulates every phase of my work,
rhythm, tone and all the rest. With refer
ence to rhythm particularly, I am amazed
at the absolute accuracy with which the
instrument reproduces' the artist's most
"You have found record-making an ex
acting task, then," I suggested, "each de
tail must be so carefully considered in order
that the finished record may be you nt
"Extremely interesting, yes, and exact
fng but very valuable too. My mother,
who has always been my inseparable com
panion and advisor, tho otherjday remarked
upon my improved interpretation of a work
which I present frequently in recital. 'You
play thai differently ami lnucli mutu Il-ii-ingly
these last few days' she said, 'has any
thing occured to give you a new point of
" 'I've been hearing my interpretation on
the Duo-Art Pianola I have been playing
the part of the audience, listening to my
own work. The improved interpretation is
the result of a new kind of self criticism,'
"The Duo-Art actually has helped greatly
in study and practice," lie wont on, "for
obviously as ono sits at the keyboard it is
impossible to know how some effects reach
Mr. Grainger slid deep down in his chair
and sat thoughtfully quiet for a fiw
moments. "I sincerely think that tlio Duo
Art Pianola is going to do great things for
music. Artistic interpretations by great
musicians make musical classics clt-ar and
comprehensible and entertaining to the
layman. With these fine interpretations
presented so widely by moans of the Duo
Art, the result must be a rapidly advancing
taste in music a quickly increasing interest
"The musical world surely owes much to
the Aeolian Company, for you with your
high ideals and your very liberal spirit have
added a distinct impetus to tho advance
ment of musical art."

THROUGH tho Duo-Art Pianola it is
now your privilege to hear in your

greatest pianists of the day.
This remarkable new instrument, actu

these famous musicians so perfectly that
it is like hearing them play in person.
