Thank you.

I received a Yo-Yo Ma recording as a Christmas gift, and I can hear (and feel) that "character" of which he speaks in every note! What a unique talent, and thoughtful individual he is!

vlhorowitz,

Thanks for posting. This has been a week in which I have obsessed over an issue that I have no control over. So it was particularly uplifting to be reminded that there is this wonderful person in the world named Yo-Yo Ma.

Did anyone in this forum play Vladimir Horowitz Steinway grand piano that was on tour in the early 1990's? His relative who inherited his piano loaned it to Steinway dealerships across the oountry. His Steinway grand from his New York apartment and sent to Moscow with him a few years before he died. Brian Brooks, a Steinway concert artist, was my piano teacher at a Steinway dealership and Horowitz grand was there in the dealership with us. I asked if I could play the piano and he agreed. I sat down and played. After playing I asked Brian why there was no bite to the Steinway as the action was very weak. He told me that Vladimir had aging hand problems and the action was adjusted. What a huge blessing to play his piano. Sandra M

I believe it's still on tour. One of my students reported playing it in Seattle this Fall.

Yes, the piano is still on tour. I had a magical experience two summers ago having an hour with the piano after it was tuned and regulated by Franz Mohr.
