George Bernard Shaw: National Character
“Grieg... is a ‘national’ composer.... I am not to be imposed on by that sort of thing. I do not cry out “How Norwegian!” whenever I hear an agumented triad; nor “How Bohemian!” when I hear a tune proceeding by intervals of augmented seconds; nor “How Irish!” when Mr. Stanford Villiers plays certain tricks on subdominant harmonies; nor “How Scotch!” when somebody goes to the piano and drones away on E flat and B flat with his left hand, meanwhile jigging at random on the other black keys with his right. All good “folk music” is as international as the story of Jack the Giant Killer or the Ninth Symphony.”
