Beethoven seemed to realize the value of musical therapy long before it came into general use. When the Countess Ertmann (a fine pianist as well as friend, one of the greatest interpreters of his piano music) was inconsolable having lost her last child, Beethoven invited her to his studio, and said: “Now we will talk, but in notes, not words.” He opened the piano and improvised for her for over an hour; and the Countess understood the message and left feeling at peace and comforted.
