Marble-ous, a touch of glass!
Thank you to all of you who are sending me your reactions to my last blog, concerning your top 10 pieces. I'm collecting the information and will pop it up here soon.
Meanwhile, I'm grateful to Shirley for pointing me towards this amazing music machine which plays by marbles! Also to Tony who rather enjoyed these two contrasting versions (one a solo, the other a duet) of The Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy by Tchaikowsky.
I love automated music. If you can recommend any museums that feature player pianos, music boxes, street organs and the like, I'd love to list them on the blog - and, indeed, visit them myself!
