Steinway B 1894, flame-grain mahogany case, $65,000

This stunning instrument was completed on January 12, 1894, in New York and rebuilt and refinished in 1967-8. The action and belly work have been done again within the last five years. The action is smooth as silk, supple, and responsive; the tone is sweet and expressive. The irreplaceable case in glowing flame-grain Cuban mahogany is strikingly beautiful in spite of the minor flaws that time has visited upon it. It has ivory keys, has been fitted with a Dampp-Chaser and comes with a Jansen artist's bench.

The fine pianist and technician who rebuilt the action and is currently keeping the instrument for me had this to say about it:
"I went ahead and put your piano in the house. It sounds really beautiful in that room, I try and play it a little each day and I'm rethinking the voicing on that piano. It takes a different approach perhaps technique wise, more depth in the playing, as opposed to a brighter piano which you are constantly trying not to go too far, holding back for fear of distorting or blasting. Once the player gets that, they can really dig in and to me it feels like an extra level of control and nuance. I much prefer it honestly."
I wouldn't sell this piano at all if I could move it to India with me, but I can't. Try it for yourself in Kansas City. Once you fall in love with it I will be happy to help arrange shipping. This piano is unique in every way. You won’t see another like it.
