Leif Ove Andsnes was featured on today's Tiny Desk Concert. The piano he was playing sounds magnificent. My guess is it's a Bosendorfer, but does anyone know for sure?

Thanks for the NPR link. It was recorded at Mozarthaus in Vienna. Per the museum’s website , the piano is indeed a Bosendorfer.

Looks like it might be an Oscar Peterson signature edition?

Thank you for posting.The Fantasia was wonderful, so was the sparkling Rondo.Both so different, yet each show a different side of Mozart.Actually they used to keep an autograph copy of that Fantasia in C minor on disply in the apartment.Perhaps it was just a facsimile of the original?
He said he performed in the basement of the building? It does make sense because the apartment itself is not very large.It makes me want to go to Austria despite risking Covid.

I could not see much of the piano.It sounded rather bright but I am listening on my cell phone.If I get a chance I may try and listen again later.

I am thinking of one poster who owns an Yamaha S7X who said Mozart was "a polite" composer Well I did not think that Fantasia particularly polite.

The basement is the Bosendorfer salon

No midway in the recital just after the pianist finished playing the Rondo in D he says he is performing from the basement of the Mozart House.It is possible that he means the courtyard of the building.It is not from the Bosendorfer factory.

The performance is from the basement of Mozarthaus which has a venue called Bosendorfer salon in the basement. You’re right, it is not from the Bosenforfer factory.

OK yes the apartment is on the second floor.We were there quite a few years ago.I do not think they had any adverts around then.So I would never have noticed that there was a Bosendorfer basement.Regarding the performance I thought it rather "robust", (perhaps I just prefer Zimmerman's Mozart).Thanks dogsperson.
