A Pianist’s Piano
Sometimes you play a piano that does everything you want and makes everything you play sound good. The recent addition of a restored Steinway Model B grand piano to The Piano Shop Bath provided me with an opportunity to have that very experience. Of course Steinway is a very illustrious name and is found in most concert halls around the world, and the list of artists who have used them reads like a who’s who of classical and popular music: Sergei Rachmaninoff, Vladimir Horowitz, Elton John, Billy Joel etc etc. So perhaps this might inform opinion on the piano manufacturer before a note is even played. However it should be mentioned that before making such a purchase it is highly recommended to try out pianos from the likes of Bluthner, Bosendorfer, Yamaha, Kawai, all of which are being used in concert halls by top artists as well.
