Ida in an Interior with Piano, Vilhelm Hammershøi
Englishman John Stewart invented the “euphonicon” in 1841. It has three separate soundboards housed in the macassar ebony case, and the iron frame is gilt. Fact: The unusual visual suggestion of the instrument is that it might be able to be played like a harp or sound like a harp, but it is, in fact, an upright piano. Source: http://goo.gl/6NZzUx

This past week we had the pleasure of delivering a beautiful Schimmel Konzert grand piano to the equally beautiful Showplace Performance Centre in Peterborough. It was great meeting everyone at Showplace and we wish them all the best in their upcoming season!
