This is a little off-topic but the renowned composer Cesar Auguste Franck was born in Liege, then part of the Kingdom of The Netherlands, on December 10, 1822. In that region Walloon dialect was spoken. Today it is in Belgium.

Franck had very large hands, capable of spanning twelve white keys on the keyboard. Consequently, some of the massive chords he scored cannot be played by many organists.

He died November 8, 1890. His successor as organist at Ste. Clothilde was one of his pupils, Vincent d'Indy.
