Steinway & Sons “Lady” A

This post salutes our new friend Michael, his love of piano music and his generous heart.

We came to know an extremely ardent musician over this past year.  A player passionate about playing himself, discriminating about fine pianos and invigorated by all things musical.    Over the course of several months he infected us with his enthusiasm over pianos of all shapes and sizes.

In his enthusiasm Michael made a gift of this beautiful rebuilt S&S A to a friend of ours who lives in LA.  She, like Michael,  is passionate, discriminating and invigorated by all things musical.   She stands at the edge of launching a chamber music series called “Canvas” and in an unbelievably generous gesture, Michael offered this instrument in support of her creation.   Like the soirees of old,  Canvas now has a true patron.

A fairytale-like story like this one helps all who hear it believe in wild and wonderous potential happenings.    “Lady A” as she has been dubbed will be an inspiration to one very talented CA pianist and to musicians, amateur and professional, around the globe!

Michael, you’re one special man.

As Michael is my dear friend as well, not through music though, I agree wholeheartedly with all you have to say about him. He is a wonderful, caring man and I am so glad to call him my friend.
