Chess Games Converted into Musical Notation, Then Played

Jonathan W. Stokes observed:

One can’t help but notice that algebraic chess notation maps almost perfectly to scientific pitch notation…


So he devised a means of expressing chess moves musically and then converted several famous chess games into piano compositions. Here, for example, is a 1858 game in which Paul Morphy defeated Duke Karl of Brunswick and Count Isouard.
