    For those who are French-speaking musicians, discover the 1st

    biography about one of the greatest harpists of the XIXth century,

    Nicolas BOCHSA.His life is a series of adventures (not only musical

    ones…). Born in France, he spent most of his life in the UK and in

    the US before dying …in Australia in 1856 !

    When is someone going to make a movie about him, or a play, and who will portray him? He should start his harp lessons now.

    A confirmation of previous message ! Michel Faul has published “the mexican adventures of Nicolas-Charles Bochsa, the harpist” (in French) (les tribulations mexicaines de Nicolas-Charles Bochsa, harpiste), another illustration of the eccentric life of the maestro : http://bochsa.site.voila.fr
