Excerpt from The Canadian Readers, Vol. 5: Authorized for Use in the Public Schools of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, and British Columbia
She seemed shy; so Beethoven said no more, but seated himself quietly before the piano and began to play. He had no sooner struck the first chord than I knew what would follow how grand he would be that night. And I was not mistaken. Never, during all the years I knew him, did I hear him play as he then played to that blind girl and her brother. He was inspired; and from the instant that his fingers began to wander along the keys, the very tone of the instrument began to grow sweeter and more equal.
