I had been helping my student find a free piano, and this gorgeous one recently turned up after patient scoping out of local listings. The family had been baby-sitting my Steinway A grand, and it wasn't going to fit in the new location coming up in their November move.. so I sold my Steinway A, (that is being picked up on Sept. 9),which will be heading for Morgan Hill.(church choir will use) But most importantly the arrival of the Baldwin 44" piano (circa mid to late 1980's) was a nice event to celebrate. Naturally, McCrea Piano Movers came through with flying colors! https://youtu.be/vgDXSBnubGs

Maestra Kirsten, the Baldwin grand on which you've recorded the movement from Mozart K332, was it made in China ? it has a wonderful tone for 165 cm, if it's the same piano listed in your brief. thank you for sharing your performances and instruction via youtube.

Nice to see and hear something other than a "Plain Jane" Hamilton. 😀

How is your M doing? I seem to recall that you were having action/regulation/touchweight issues.

Yea the Baldwin 165 is made in China, and is a wonderful instrument...has a mellow quality to it. You're welcome for the videos I have made playing it.

I think it is well voiced, and I was able to get a nice contrast in dynamics playing it. A particular blessing for the family.
