“The Piano Forte often talks of you; – in various keys, tunes & expressions I allow – but be it Lesson or Country dance, Sonata or Waltz, You are really its constant theme.”
From a letter by Jane Austen to Caroline Austen, half sister to Anna, January 23rd 1817
Piano music seems to have been very much at the heart of Jane Austen’s life. Her niece Caroline tells us that she practised every day and the majority of music in the writer’s music collection at her house in Chawton, Hampshire, includes something to be played on the piano, whether as solo instrument, or a song accompaniment or an important part in a chamber music piece which she would have performed with friends and family.
- A selection of music from Jane Austen’s music library as well as other popular piano pieces of the day
- The selection of music on the CD is played on a variety of fine pianos of the period
- A wonderful gift or a treat for yourself!
- Gift wrap is available for this item
