Steinway Testimonial – Hector Berlioz
No doubt translated from the French, in 1867 the flowery but cranky Berlioz enthuses over the Steinway piano. Kate who is deep into Berlioz’s autobiography has been regaling me with anecdotes from his unhappy life in the ‘music biz’ (&in love) and assures me that nothing has changed in that regard. Plus a short video of harpists rehearsing for the Symphonie Fantastique. Filagree.
