An Audible Connection to a Monumental Legacy
Built by Knabe, ca. 1930 on special order, this instrument has pride of place at the intersection of several incredible stories and figures in music history. In addition to its functionality as a fine conventional piano, it contains a fully operational, original-state pneumatic player system.
The Ampico-B player in this instrument was an engineering marvel of its time, able to faithfully reproduce never-before-achieved nuances in touch and pedaling, exactly as executed by the performer. Some of the 1,000 player rolls available with this instrument were recorded by George Gershwin himself on this very piano; it is one of the largest collections of Ampico rolls in the world.
Encasing this history, prestige, and tonal beauty, is a Louis XV style cabinet in near-perfect condition.
