The composer Ailís Ní Ríain has been playing Emily’s piano at the Bronte Parsonage Museum in Haworth and has composed an installation for it.
She tells Slipped Disc: ‘She was a very good pianist and even studied piano seriously in Brussels for a while. She played daily and I’ve been through her scores and I can see that she was playing to an advanced level. The instrument itself is a beautiful old up-strung piano which took three years dedicated work to fully restore.’
And here’s the rather lovely and evocative installation:
The works are installed throughout the Brontë home and visitors can experience them until 4th January 2016.
