The Grandest of the Grands

May 4, 2011

  My roommates are coming home tomorrow after being gone for 2 months.  I should probably be tidying up around here but it’s more fun procrastinating for a couple of hours looking up interesting grand pianos.  How much of a dork does that make me?
.


Chichi, the rocking piano.  A few more details here.

Before Elton John came Liberace, the original King of Bling.  This bedazzled Baldwin was his baby.


I’ve been in the presence of this Steinway & Sons beauty a few times.  Hand painted by Haida artist, Jay Simeon, inside and out, it looks as good as it sounds.  More pics here.
.

A bold design by architect Daniel Libeskind for the Royal Ontario Museum.  A bit more here.

A Schimmel collaboration with artist and sculptor, Otmar Alt.
.

The Fazioli “M. Liminal‘s” inspired design.

.

The Bösendorfer “Edge”.  More here.

The Bösendorfer “Brüssel“, created by architect Jürgen Felsenstein for the 1958 World’s Fair.


And finally, there’s this little rainbow, guaranteed to give you a migraine if not brighten your listening experience.
