Lettres dans lesquelles cette personne est citée
246 (21 septembre 1771) | voir
American statesman, scientist and amateur musician. By trade a printer, Franklin is best known as a statesman. He played the harp, the guitar and the glass dulcimer, and invented an improved form of the musical glasses which he called the armonica. It was Franklin’s armonica that the virtuosa Marianne Davies, who knew the Mozarts both in London and in Italy, played on.
