they have a $750,000 tagged Steinway that Guggenheim gave his wife for Valentine's Day.. Art Case to die for and ethereal tone. I sampled and videotaped this one and other beauties. (Fazioli, historic Pleyel, Bechstein, etc)

Thank you very much for your lovely Mozart playing which, I am sure, elicited the very best sound from these gorgeous pianos. It is very uplifting to hear the voices of these marvellous instruments both new and impeccably restored. Personally, as a listener, I found the Guggenheim Steinway to have the sweetest and most joyous sound of the various pianos I heard. Of course, each piano had its own character and charm as well as its special magic. The playing experience itself, for the performer, would also add an extra level of pianistic enjoyment.
This post has been a wonderful start to my day.

Kind regards,
Robert.

You're welcome.. I also made a side trip the day before to Beethovens, (also on w. 58th) and though its prices were reasonable, the pianos needed work.
