Rick's presentation on Roselin Castle, showing a 19th century glass flute from his collection.
Rick explained that the piece he would play for this short recital was a "pathetic air", by Charles Nicholson, 1822. Here, pathetic has its original meaning: sensitive, with feeling, from the Greek, pathos.)
