Battle Sounds. The Piano in Leipzig

Type: Documentaries

In the bicentenary of the Battle of Leipzig (16-19 October 1813) the Napoleonic Museum in Rome is planning a small exhibition focusing on an important piano dating from the second decade of the nineteenth century, belonging to the National Museum of Musical Instruments in Rome.

The piano lid, designed by the Viennese manufacturer Joachim Ehlers, represents the battle taken from a watercolour by the German painter Johann Adam Klein. The work of Klein is also known for a series of engraved versions, one of which, by Antonio Verico, is here on display with the painted version on the piano.
To complement the exhibition a series of graphic works depicting the different moments of the battle, some of them belonging to private collectors.
