Today in WMH: “Come Here, Watson, I Need a Page Turner!”

4/4 Today in Weird Music History: 1877.  A New York audience takes a long distance call and listens to a piano played from Philadelphia. Pianist Frederic Boskovitz played through Alexander Graham Bell’s recently patented telephone.  It was an event not all that different from the streamed performances of today such as HD Met broadcasts, except for the sound quality, perhaps!

    Wow I bet the sound quality was rather different! I never knew concerts were transmitted through telephones.
