50 Note Sankyo Orpheus Movement
Tune DescriptionThe song “La fille aux cheveux de lin" is known in English as "the girl with the seven locks of hair." It is usually played on the piano at recitals or concerts, wherever music is known to be played. We do not generally hear this song on a music box, but once again, Sankyo has done it. This lovely musical arrangement takes on a slightly Asian flavor. one would have to hear this movement to truly understand it's intricate qualities (Very pretty).
The "Meditation", also known as "Thais", is like a love song without any words. Listen to it and you will know more about what I mean. The music paints a picture of someone in deep thought. Perhaps about that "Certain someone" or some other romantic event.
The "Menuet", also known as "L'arlesienne Suite No. 2", is a nice surprise. A lilting quality. A good contrast between the other two songs on the movement.
All three of these songs would work well for any occasion, particularly for an anniversary or a wedding gift. Listen to this movement then decide for yourself. You will not be disappointed.
50 Note MovementThis kind of Sankyo movement plays two or three tunes (or parts) and is made in Japan. Playing time is usually about 6 minutes. There are fifty notes (or "teeth") on the comb. There is a lot of bass sound in the comb, and the arrangements are usually very spectacular in nature. Our in-house comb machine and Rick's expertise result in Bell-Like Tuning unrivalled in new movements for decades.
