I remember when I was a young kid, "The Planets "used to be regarded as a great masterpiece.,
Something like The Rite of Spring by Stravinsky. I suppose it is still quite popular in England.
People were curious about the composer's name ?(he may be German???)He was English ,
however as every English music history school book told us !!!

Exactly the same model of Broadwood as mine (Model 5 - barless 'drawing room grand').

I'd like to say I am currently composing something significant on mine. I'd like to say it. But I can't!

I had an old Broadwood upright piano with the most beautiful tone , "once
upon a time "
How old is your Broadwood grand ?From what I hear they long since stopped
making Broadwood pianos in England ? Is that correct?

Here's a performance by Mei-ting Sun and PW member Koji Attwood of two movements from The Planets arranged for two pianos by the composer.
