Hey Guys/Gals:
I've been ask by a close friend who knows nothing about computers to help him sell his 1927, 9' Concert Grand Piano. This was owned by Engelbert Humperdinck. I ask him to dig out any documentation when he purchased it and he mentioned Liberaces name also. This piece is beautiful however it does have a scratch on top somewhere and he was told this was done moving it from one concert to another. I ask him not to do or pay any refinishing at this point. He said the original stool has some rips as well. He had it professionally tuned when he purchased it and he remarked that the older gentleman who was hired to do the tuning was blown away by this piece.

Reason I'm asking you folks for some input, I honestly will probably start here local on our Craigslist to see what kind of interest can be generated. What would be to our advantage other than several pictures to help advertise correctly to potential buyers?

I'm thinking somewhere around 40K as an asking price. Please give me you thoughts and thanks ahead of time for any help in this matter.

Pics are a must for us to give you a reasonable estimate, but I guarantee that you will not get anywhere close to $40,000. If it is in original (not restored) condition, you are looking at $1,000 to maybe $4,000 and the $4,000 would be on a very good day. A dealer/rebuilder would sell a fully restored 9' Baldwin (refinished, new soundboard, pinblock, bridge, strings, new action, etc) for between $30,000-$40,000 upon completion of said restoration.

So with the above being said, it's not best to have a solid original, restored is worth more? I would have thought just the opposite and the idea it belonged to Humperdinck doesn't really have and significant value as well?

It's history may have a value to a collector. Over here the people are mostly players, and value is determined by what the instrument has to offer.

I am guessing that auction houses will have a better idea about the value to a collector.

I had him gather up any paperwork as you guys/gals are trying to help... This unit was rebuilt in 1993, used in a few concerts since and he purchased it and had it shipped from the estate/Las Vegas in 1995

Last year in a highly publicized Christie's Auction, they sold $4.4 million worth of Van Cliburn's mother's estate. The Steinway concert grand that was his practice piano growing up with tremendous documentation sold for $50k. Considering it's wholesale value of that Steinway, regardless of ownership, constitutes much of that price as well as the huge publicity that Christie's brings to attract buyers...you have a long road to get any real action from your local craigslist.

I tend to agree with the others - the other issue is the extent and competence of the rebuilding work done varies, and even the term "rebuilt" has no standard definition in the industry. A rebuilt piano could have $1,000 or $35,000 worth of work done to it, and still have the label "rebuilt" on the ad.

If it looked good and played and sounded good, I'd imagine you could fetch somewhere south of $10k in mostly original condition. Keep in mind that concert grands aren't too easy to sell, as few individuals have room or a desire for a piano that large. $40k is not a reasonable price in my opinion, even if it had been pretty comprehensively rebuilt in '93. $40k would be even more ridiculous if it were in original condition, fwiw.

I've heard it repeated here that rebuildable, worn-out Steinway grand "cores" are worth roughly $1,000 a foot. I'd expect a Baldwin in the same condition to be worth less than that.

My two cents are that the provenance of an older piano is rarely worth as much as the seller expects. I can't tell you mow many older Baldwins I've seen signed by Liberace, Ferrante & Teicher, and George Shearing. I know my Baldwin was a C&A people with George Shearing's signature on the plate. Wasn't really a factor for me at all. I bought the piano for its condition and sound. Now some pianos (maybe Liberace's mirror-plated Baldwin, or one in his personal collection may have some increased value).

Why would it be worth more? A 9' Baldwin is not rare. A 9' Baldwin from 1927 isn't an antique, either. One that is in original condition will not perform at the level of what someone in the market for a 9' piano would demand. So with that in mind, why would someone buy it? People don't devote 60-70 square feet of their house to a 9' piano just for the heck of it. And no, the piano's association with Humperdinck does not add to its value; I'd venture to guess that most people would say "Engelbert who?" I had to look up who he is on Wikipedia, which directed me to an entry of some obscure German composer before the Engelbert pop singer.....

You've never heard or seen Hansel and Gretel?

Pity.

I remember listening to Hansel and

Yes, it is. They usually perform it during the Christmas season.

Gotta agree with that. frown

Engelbert Humperdinck, the composer of Hansel and Gretel, passed away in 1921. This Baldwin concert grand was built in 1927 - so obviously, the "Engelbert Humperdinck" who may or may not have owned it is the pop singer (born Arnold George Dorsey in 1936).

The three standard, staged treats during the holidays are Hansel, Amahl and the Night Visitors, and Nutcracker.

At the NY Met, it is a loved and annual tradition. Frederica von Stade built a major career using the role of Hansel as a foundation.

Yes, it's true. I don't know everything! Opera is very much outside my area of expertise, though I do enjoy Wolfgang's. Other than that, the only operas I'm exposed to are ones that my vocal friends are cast in, and so far that has not included H & G. I'm willing to bet that more than 9/10 of the people I went to school with haven't heard it either. Most of the music I listen to is pre-1850s, with Brahms being one of only a handful of exceptions.

That said, Humperdinck the composer died before this piano was manufactured, so I'm guessing this piano was owned by the British pop singer, Arnold Dorsey, who adopted Engelbert Humperdinck as a stage name.

Nope, I actually liked taking music history. We just didn't have time to go over composers with one hit wonders, I guess.

I did sleep through music theory, however.

At a minimum, give this a listen. Probably the best known excerpt from Hansel and Gretel (Evening Prayer). smile

This is a common misunderstanding, which I think presumes a piano's value is as furniture. It's not. A piano's value is linked to exactly what it is: a musical instrument. So better musical instrument = more value. Yes, brand recognition, etc. is a factor also. Unfortunately for your piano the Baldwin name is currently drudging through the mud.

I agree with what others have already posted: the quality and extent of the work from the '90s is key to determining reasonable value. $40,000 is crazy high.

Also it's worth mentioning being drug all over to concerts isn't a selling point, it's a liability.

I'd be surprised if past ownership influences value significantly with the marketing ideas you are looking at. With tons of exposure/publicity and the right selling conditions perhaps some. Also keep in mind that while some people on this forum may know who Engelbert Humperdink was/is (I did not know the modern one, and had to ask old buddy Google)potential buyers might not.

Yeah, I clearly remember studying an opera because my friend was cast in it. It wouldn't surprise me if opera gets shorted a bit in music history. But anyone remember studying much about the Lutheran Cantata in music history? Bach wrote a bunch of them...

Elvis's piano would get much more..because its noted he did play his piano...as for Englebert, who would care?

same goes for Sinatra's piano..unless Sammy Cahn or Nat Cole played on it at Sinatra's house..its the provenance..

Near the train station in Boppard. Humperdinck lived here for several years. Perhaps one of our German friends could research the archives to see what kind of piano he owned.

Just for the fun of it: Cole Porter's 5'7" Knabe grand piano from 1952, sold at Bonham Butterfield's auction in Los Angeles for $16.250 in May of this year.

Suddenly I'm reminded of a local piano store that has a 1960s era Baldwin D (prior to the SD-10) that has a whole bunch of signatures, including Liberace, Ferrante and Teicher, Jimmy Swaggart as well as several other I don't immediately remember.He has a $200,000 price tag and it's a pretty poor instrument. No, I didn't add an extra zero. $200,000!!!!! Apparently signed Baldwins are all over the place.

I thought I read somewhere Les Paul signed a piano, I don't think it added value to the piano.. now a guitar I can see that increasing in value.. but not a piano..

You are kidding, right? smile

Jerry Lee Lewis, Jimmy Swaggart and Mickey Gilley (the country artist) were cousins, and all three can play the piano very well, and have a similar style.

Our own Sally Phillips told me she used to tune for Jerry Lee Lewis and Jimmy Swaggart, as well as Stevie Wonder. No wonder I felt like a celebrity when she tuned my piano. smile

You are kidding, right? smile

Jerry Lee Lewis, Jimmy Swaggart and Mickey Gilley (the country artist) were cousins, and all three can play the piano very well, and have a similar style.

Our own Sally Phillips told me she used to tune for Jerry Lee Lewis and Jimmy Swaggart, as well as Stevie Wonder. No wonder I felt like a celebrity when she tuned my piano. smile
