The Glass Piano

At the tender age of 23, Princess Alexandra Amelie of Bavaria (1826-1875) was observed awkwardly walking sideways down the corridors of her family palace.

This hour: the piano. But not just as a musical instrument. The piano as a spiritual healer, as a symptom in a grand delusion, as a man's obsession, and as a beloved friend, put out to pasture.
