It is a truth universally acknowledged that Jane Austen enjoyed music. She played the piano every day, compiled her own albums of sheet music, and danced when others played. And music plays an important role in her novels and movie adaptations of her books.
'Without music,' Jane Austen wrote in 'Emma', 'life would be a blank to me.' Like many women of her time, the writer was also a skilled musician; so are many of the female characters in her novels. More often than not, they play the piano - as Jane Austen did herself.
