Description

The Musgroves own a grand-piano, but their grown daughters are only passable players. The piano is scattered amongst Henrietta and Louisa’s other accomplishments, but they are much more oriented toward laughing and socializing than practicing music or their other talents. It is Anne who plays the Musgroves’s piano, and when contrasted with her supposed rivals for Captain Wentworth’s affections, Anne is the more accomplished and sophisticated, in music and mind.
