Harmonium & Piano duos provided one of the most popular musical combinations in the late nineteenth century, combining the percussive brilliance of the piano with the expressive organ-like tone of the harmonium.
1842 Alexandre Debain of Paris, patented the name "Harmonium"
for a musical instrument which possessed the tonal qualities of a pipe
organ and the expressive control of a string instrument. The craftsmanship
of Victor Mustel's Parisian workshop took the harmonium to new artistic
heights and its combination with piano was the inspiration for music
by some of the greatest composers including Saint-Saëns, Franck
"a rare combination of exceptional musical prowess, highly professional presentation
and irresistibly charming personality"
