Description:
Around the year 1700, Pantal(e)on Hebenstreit (1667-1750), a versatile German musician, caused a sensation when he built a large dulcimer. According to some sources, it had no fewer than 276 strings, made of metal as well as gut. The instrument played a significant role in preparing the way for the development of the modern piano. Louis XVI, impressed by Hebenstreit’s contraption, suggested the instrument should be named after its inventor and therefore be called a Pantaleon or Pantalon. Johann Kuhnau, Bach's predecessor at the Thomaskirche in Leipzig and equally impressed, enjoyed the instrument’s ‘momentum dulcedinis et gratiae musicae’. One could say that the solo piano in Ghosting Pantaleon is shadowed by the cimbalom and its allies (harp, vibraphone, celesta).
