In today’s modern, fast-paced world, where stress takes its daily, unrelenting toll on us, it may be worthwhile to take a step back and explore sound’s healing effects.

The PH Grand Piano combines elements from the Bauhaus tradition, fine arts, modernist architecture, modern design and the more traditional organic forms. It is a contemporary work of art. Steel and leather bound with a lightness of being. Graceful legs dancing to the beat of a different drummer.

What was the original name for PIANO?

The instrument was actually first named "clavicembalo col piano e forte" (literally, a harpsichord that can play soft and loud noises). This was shortened to the now common name, "piano."

I have been exploring the beautiful countryside and small villages of rural Suffolk and by chance happened across this fourteenth-century Church called St Peter and Paul's. Composer Benjamin Britten is buried here in the Church grounds. I discover a beautiful Steinway Grand Piano in the church.

Highlights of International concert pianist Máire Carroll’s performance of Hidden Pianos Beneath the Quays at the Old Pump House which served No. 1 Graving Dock and was built in 1908. A truly enchanting performance in a truly unique setting!

It’s no surprise that a lot of people are excited and intrigued by the discovery of the so-called ‘Piano Hoard’

The gold coins found within it date to 1915.

So what happened to the original owner and why was the hoard hidden in the first place?

This is the story of a mystery hoard of gold found inside a piano.

Piano tuner Martin Backhouse came across several tightly wrapped fabric bundles while working on an instrument that had been newly donated to Bishop’s Castle Community College in Shropshire.

Carefully opening one he discovered stacks of gold sovereigns – precious coins – dating from the turn of the 20th century.

At the end of the 1800s and start of the 1900s, the production of pianos took off as demand for the instruments increased in well-to-do homes.

But the pianos made during that era are now, 100 years on, collectively reaching extinction.

While some pianos can be restored, others are beyond repair and so are being dumped, abandoned, neglected, smashed - even burnt.
