Koenig Rudolf

Koenig, Rudolph

Instrument-maker (1832-1901)

Acoustics made such strides in the 19th century that some instrument-makers devoted all their time to it; the most famous of these is Rudolph Koenig. Born in Koningsbergen (later known as Kalingrad), he left for Paris in 1851. His workshop supplied the most precise, efficient and beautiful acoustic instruments that a researcher or a demonstrator could wish for, such as the sound synthesizer on display in the Instrument Room, the pièce de résistance of many a museum.
