Some gorgeous Haydn playing from an upcoming documentary on PianoCraft's restoration of the Steinway D at the Phillips Collection in Washington DC.
I am not sure when the documentary will be completed, but I will certainly let folks around here know.
Sorry for the self promotion, but I think people will enjoy this.
Sound is just from the video camera, but still, not too bad.

Sounds really nice! Great playing!

Since this D is no more than 30 years old, what technical work did you perform?

This piano got an entirely new belly including soundboard, bridges etc. We rebuilt the action with new everything but keys a couple of years ago.
You would probably be pleased with the hammer weight we ended up with.
This Steinway is from the mid 1990s.
I know many will be surprised at the extent of the rebuild on this recent Steinway, but for the performance demands of the venue it was either a comprehensive rebuild or a new piano.

Thank you for the kind words. Means a lot.

Nice video and a nice sounding piano. That is more work than many 20 year old conservatory practice pianos need.

The final product is quite nice though.

Thanks for that.

FWIW, if this piano's purpose was to be a conservatory practice piano, it wouldn't have needed the work it got. But as a high profile concert instrument it had to have this approach.

Lovely (I love Haydn), attractively shot too. Very much looking forward to the documentary and to hearing the piano in person.

Beautifully produced video. The D sounds terrific.

I've performed this Haydn sonata myself - and this pianist nailed it. Excellent !!

Keith, I don't think of it as self promotion, I think of a proud poppa who can't help himself. :-) Without question, it is a very special instrument. The great ones tell you right away, "THIS is what I am."

It is wonderful that this piano gets to share its voice with the world, we are the richer for it.
