Princess Caroline's Waltz -
and Caroline Huivenaar
Visiting Louis Huivenaar's workshop
Dieren, the Netherlands, we auditioned a 1903 Victor Mustel harmonium
manufactured in Paris and in need of restoration. A contract was given from
the Staatsoper Berlin for this purpose, courtesy of private donors. Playing
several of the instruments in the workshop was most interesting, and an
invitation to dinner courtesy of his wife, Caroline, was offered. After a
day of considering harmoniums, we enjoyed the lovely hospitality of their
home and family before taking our leave. This little, light-hearted souvenir is a thank you
note for the evening's food and fun.
