FRANCIS PLANT - PIANIST

Holographed note by the legendary piano virtuoso and pedagogue on his imprinted visiting card, Mont de Marsan, June, 1881.

Madame Auguste Chevalier, Will never forget the help of such a benevolent and sympathetic affection which she has shown me with proverbial kindness.

Plant (1839-1934) transcended the 19th Century and into the 20th Century. He was one of the earliest born musicians to record and also lived long enough to have a film made of him at the keyboard. As he saw Frederic Chopin perform in concert and he was one of the great interpreters of his works, it is thought that his performances of his music was authentic. The pianist is considered by the cognoscenti to be the single greatest French born pianist of the 19th Century. Plant played duets with Liszt, who was a close friend and also was friendly with the greats operating in Paris in the mid 19th Century including Berlioz, Gounod, Mendelssohn and Rossini.
