Kent, thanks for that idea. I'll follow up on that. Thanks to *all* of you for your invaluable advice! I plan to audition the Kawaii and have my tech check it over. It's probably the one we'll go with. Thanks again!!

That Steinway was never owned by him, but it was used by him for one concert season. Afterwards, Steinway stored it away until they donated it to the Smithsonian.
