I have been really amazed by the sound of the piano presented here. Can you tell me which piano model it is? I am thinking about buying one of the VSL pianos and really cannot decide which one comes closest to the one from the video.

If anyone wants to listen to the piano, start at about 13:30

Hmm... My first thought was that it was a very clean, uniform sound. Not Bosendorfer or Grotrian, in other words. The next question was whether it was one of the mellower Yamahas (SX series?) or a Steinway that wasn't too 'old'-sounding. Neither seemed to be a lay-up.

Then her Wikipedia page turns up her affiliation.

That's a New York Steinway.

To somewhat derail this discussion her album "wallflower" is just wonderful. It has IMO the best version of California Dreamin' ever recorded. The song actually makes more sense when slowed down and mellowed out. I bought the book of her arrangements for this album and play something from it almost every week.
