• Short Summary

    Sheet music that sounds the same whether read right way or wrong way up.

  • Description

    Music Both Ways. Part of issue PUT IT THERE.

    Pathe Studio, London.

    Several shots of a piece of sheet music, written by Ignaz Moscheles and called 'The Way of the World', that has been written with treble clefs at both sides of the stave. The music is the same whether viewed the right way or wrong way up. The pianist Felix Noel came across the piece in a magazine.

    In the studio we see a pianist - Felix Noel? - playing the music on the grand piano. Then he turns the music upside down and plays it again - it is exactly the same!

    Commentator asks us to contact Pathe if we know of any similar musical novelties.
