The Hupfeld Phonoliszt Violina Plays Chopin

It is just amazing how a bow that is perpendicular to the string can make even an automated violin (or set of violins) sound human! The finger levers are powered by small bellows, and the wheel is made from 1,300 horse hairs.

There is a lot you can learn about 19th-century style from this interpretation, once you remove your lower jaw from the floor.
