canstockphoto12108892Part of our Autumn collection of pianos will be arriving very soon. We feel that these particular pianos are a bit extra special.

imagesThere are 2 Yamaha U1’s. They are everything we would expect from this excellent piano builder. These 2 pianos have been so very well looked after, you would never guess their age.

imagesThe other gem is a Kawai. We are particularly fond of Kawai pianos and it was love at first playing with this one! It too has been very well cared for, feeling and sounding really wonderful.

Kingsburg blackOur final piano on this post is a Kingsburg. We usually stock the 115 model but this one we stumbled upon is taller and has a superb sound. It will also be great value as well!!

CONCERT: CELLO & PIANO. September 20th

y3 poster UK 1It isn’t our usual thing to advertise concerts here, but we thought this would be a bit special. It is a cello and piano recital of music inspired by folk music. The concert is titled foklore & fantasy and strikes us as a very interesting concept. Folk tradition in music has always been of interest to ‘classical’ composers who skillfully manage to weave this style into their own music.

This concert is performed by a great friend of Pianolobby, who has written a blogpost about life as a freelance cellist.

For this concert, Hannah is joined by the very talented pianist Jillian Jack in this recital. Both Hannah and Jillian are both graduates of the prestigious Juilliard School of music in New York.

Details of how to get tickets are on the attached poster.

If would like more information, Hannah can be contacted on 07921 761 772 or on email to hmsloane@gmail.com

See you there!!

Given its price it is a very high specification instrument, it even has a slow fall mechanism to stop the lid trapping little fingers on the keyboard.Lippmann-Aug-13-update-002-682x682
