Home Music Lane

It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

"Maybe someone here has actually played on one?"

Ahem. . . yes I have. I've played on a Broadwood from Beethoven's time and another one from Mozart's time. (I don't remember the builder - it may have been one by Anton Walter, but I'm not sure.) The one from Mozart's time had knee levers instead of pedals. I've also played on an Erard piano from Beethoven's time - this last instance was at a (very wealthy) friend's house, and I played on it quite extensively: many Haydn Sonatas and Beethoven's Pathétique Sonata.

As for the sound of these instruments, I believe I've made my opinions on this subject known over the years in previous posts. ;-)
