Louis Spohr in Braunschweig - the 1780's
My parents were musical: my father played the flute, and my mother, a pupil of the Conductor Schwaneberger in Brunswick, played on the piano with great ability, and sang the Italian bravuras of that time. As they practised music very often in the evening, a sense of love for the art was early awakened in me.
