Description

John Broadwood and sons Baby grand piano fully restored to it's former glory. 95 cms in height 1.4 metres width and 1.5metres long. Comes with piano stool and full cover. Good condition .

Made in the 1930s by John Broadwood and Sons. A world renowned and one of the oldest piano manufacturers in thew world.

Ludwig van Beethoven received a six octave Broadwood in 1818 as a gift from Thomas Broadwood which he kept for the rest of his life. Although his impaired hearing may well have prevented him appreciating its tone, he seems to have preferred it to his Erard which had a similar range. Above the company label on the front edge of the pin block the following text can be read: ?Hoc Instrumentum est Thomae Broadwood (Londrini) donum propter ingenium illustrissime Beethoven.? [This instrument is a gift from Thomas Broadwood of London in recognition of the most illustrious genius of Beethoven.]

Frédéric Chopin played Broadwood instruments in Britain, including at the last concert of his life given at Guildhall, London, in 1848.
