Robert Louis Stevenson, Composer

Turns out that Scotland’s celebrated author Robert Louis Stevenson was also a composer. “Members of the Edinburgh-based Robert Louis Stevenson Club have been presented with the jaunty piece, titled Aberlady Links, and have now had it recorded for the first time. The short composition, thought to be the only one Stevenson invented, was written in Samoa, where he died, for flageolet – a traditional recorder.”
