Playing the Horrowitz Steinway
Last Tuesday my friend Fred Riley at Greene Music arranged for me to play the Horrowitz Steinway which is currently on a national tour. This Steinway D (#314503) is purportedly the piano that Vladimir Horrowitz used for touring and recording. As you might imagine, the case of the piano has seen a good bit of wear but the piano still plays very well. In particular, I was taken with its bass voice--very rich but still clear.
