The kaiser always a great ad mirer of Grieg, whom he often enter tained royally on his yacht when mak ing his annual summer cruise in the Norwegian fjords.. After his death he did 'not forget the widow, and last summer he invited her to attend the production of Peer Gynt in Berlin. He also gave a banquet in her honor at the palace.

Grieg is now sixty-eight years of age.
