PERCY GRAINGER it a pianist
brilliant and very triad capabilities. His
musicaltvritt'ngt are at present be'mzmtre
widely perfermed than the compositions of
any other English-speaking eomposer. Un
questionably he is a musical genius. And
fine and remarkable as his present accom
plishments are, Ins future holds promise
tf even greater performances.
He u as the close friend of Grieg, the
famous Norwegian composer. Grieg saw
in him an artistic power of great richness
The noted critics in every principal
world capital have heard him and have
given him their highest mead of praise.
PercyGrainger,the cheerful, sunny com
poser the sane, poetic pianist is with
tut question one of the most commanding
personalities in the musical world today.
TTF PEOPLE sometimes are
I listening to music, and some
JL times talcing part in it, we shall
have better musicians, much keen
er listeners and greater enjoy
ment in music 1 "
Mr. Grainger thus epitomized
forme his ideaof music at its best.
"Why," I asked, "do you re
quire that pc'oplc take part in
music as well as listen?"
AIDS TO MUSICIANSHIP
"I feel that quicker, clearer un
derstanding conies 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 Pian
ola is quite your ideal of a musi
cal instrument for the home," I
"Yes quite," said Mr. Grain
ger, "I am deeply interested in
the Duo-Art. 1 play it as a
TO appreciate the full significance of Mr.
Grainger's tribute to the Duo-Art Pianola,
some understanding of this marvelous instrument
ii necessary. Briefly, the Duo-Art Pianola is a
new reproducing piano. It has three attributes,
FIRST It is a regular piano for hand playing
and practice, conventional in appearance and ob
tainable in either Grand or Upright form.
SECOND It is" a regular Pianola which may
be played with ordinary Pianola music-rolls. As
The Wonderful Young Australian Pianist -Composer,
Talks of America's Greatest Music Marvel the
piano, and sometimes as a Pianola.
Docs the idea of a Pianist using
a Pianola seem odd to you? Well,
you know, I am thinking of doing
some compositions for the Pianola.
From the viewpoint of the com
poser, it is a very interesting in
strument, with perhaps broader
possibilities even than the piano.
'And,of course, we do not lose
sight of the third faculty of the
Duo-Art. When I am en (our, my
mother may have it to reproduce
my records, and, for the time, I
am with her in spirit the Duo
Art reproductions arc so vividly
like my playing.
"Altogether, the Duo-Art is
quite wonderful indeed one of
tne greatest marvels I have found
in your remarkable America."
"You sincerely think that the
Duo-Art reproduces from your
records so accurately as to satisfy
one so well qualified to judge
critically as your own mother?"
Dl'O-AK T RKPKOnUCTIONS
"Yes, surely. And when I my
self hear the records which I have
played at my best and then edited
and corrected until they are my
fullest musical expressions, I think
to myself 'Ah, on the days when
I plav like that I am very well
"This is a line thing you are
saying for the Duo-Art, Mr.
Grainger, tell me, will you go on
record with the statement that the
Duo-Art actually reproduces your
playing even in such subtle things
as gradations of touch and tone
EXPERIENCE IN RECORD-MA KINO
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 simu
lates every phase of my work,
rhythm, tone and all the rest.
With reference to rhythm partic
ularly, I am amazed at the ab
solute accuracy with which the
instrument reproduces the artist's
most personal characteristics."
"You have found record-making
an exacting task, then," 1
suggested, "each detail must be
so carefully considered in order
that the finished record may be
you at your best."
"Extremely interest ing, yes, anil
exacting but very valuable too.
My mother, who has always been
my inseparable companion and
advisor, the other day remarked
upon my improved interpretation
of a work which I present frc-
auently in recital. 'You play that
iffercntly and much more telling
ly these last few days,' she said,
'has anything occured to give you
a new point of view?'
'"I've been hearing my inter
pretation on the Duo-Art Pianola
I have been playing the part of
the audience, listening to my own
work. The improved interpreta
tion is the result of a new kind
of self criticism,' I replied.
"The Duo-Art actually has
helped greatly in study and prac
tice," lie went on, "for obviously
as one sits at the keyboard it is
impossible to know how some
effects reach the audience."
Mr. Grainger slid deep down
in his chair and sat thoughtfully
quiet for a few moments. " I quite
sincerely think that the Duo-Art
Pianola is going to do great things
for music. Artistic interpretations
by great musicians make musical
classics clear and comprehensible
and entertaining to the layman.
With these fine interpretations pre
sented so widely by means of the
Duo-Art. the result must be a
rapidly advancing taste in music
a quickly increasing interest in
A KOI I.W IDEALS
"The musical world surely owes
much to the Aeolian Company,
for you with your high ideals and
yourvcry liberal spirit have added
a distinct impetus to the advance
ment of musical art."
After reading this report in
print, I can say that it is accurate
and truly reflects my views.
such it offers the same facilities for personal expres-'
sion control as other models of the Pianola.
THIRD It re-creates from special music-rolls
the exact performances of various pianists who have
made record-rolls for it. Obviously the importance
of this great new feature depends on the ability of
the instrument to faithfully reproduce musical values
in expressiveness as well as technique. That it pos
sesses this ability to a degree positively miraculous
is evidenced by the extraordinary enthusiasm of the
great musicians who, like Mr. Grainger, have made
and are making record-rolls for it. Among these may
be mentioned such famous names as Bauer, Husoni,
Godowsky, Grabrilowitsch, Saint-Saens, Carreno,
Hambourg, Damrosch, Granadns and many others.
The Duo-Art Pianola is obtainable in the Stein
wav, Steck, Stroud and Weber models, prices from
$750. We invite you to come in and hear this
astonishing new instrument. Demonstrations at
every hour of the day.
