Frank:

After your recent trip to Europe, who would have been the runner up?

Frank,

Too bad I didn't know you are coming to Tallinn, as I am from Helsinki I could have gone to Tallinn to meet you smile

About the piano factory in Tallinn, is is possible to visit it for tourists or what is a special deal? I would love to visit the place next time I go to Tallinn.

What Terry said! I am so, so happy for you, Frank. It's like a fairy tale. And now, about that piano party . . . whistle

Thanks for the kind words everyone, I'm loving my new piano.

Terry & KathyK, any chance you'll be at the Cape party?

Speaking of piano parties, we're having a very informal (few local friends) party next Sunday (18th). But I'd love to have some piano forums piano parties.
All depends on who can get here.

Really beautiful piano Frank, appreciate both the back story of its selection and the beautiful pictures.

Estonia just got added to the list of places I'm going to visit.

Thanks Greg.
We can't wait to go back to Tallinn.

I'm hoping to put together another piano tour for 2013 (if we get enough interest).
Would love to have it include Estonia and Italy, it's a matter of logistics and expense.

He couldn't believe "Mr. PianoWorld" didn't have a real (acoustic) piano at home. He said that just didn't seem right, I agreed. We talked more about it and how we might fix the problem. Bottom line, we came to an agreement that worked for both of us, and meant I'd finally get to have a real piano in my home.

Yes, I'll say that's wrong!

This is a treasure that you've snagged, and this problem has been fixed in spades... Absolutely fantastic, gorgeous, wunderbar!

My heartfelt congratulations, Frank. Your own private "Piano Row"! wow

Now go practice! laugh

Frank is a far better pianist than is willing to admit or leads up to!

I've seen him play Moonlight sonata, Blues and Boogie - all at once! [or in short sequence...]

Lovely piano! I'd adore having an Estonia, they are beautiful instruments. It is a wonderful pictorial and story, too!
