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.

This Erard grand piano was commissioned by Queen Victoria in 1856 and was intended as a showpiece to form part of the furnishings of The State Rooms at Buckingham Palace.
For Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, the piano was the centre of music-making at home and they installed pianos in the private apartments of all their residences. Together they played arrangements of overtures and symphonies, and accompanied each other in song. The gilded case is decorated in the French early eighteenth-century style with cherubs and singeries – comical scenes involving monkeys playing musical instruments and making mischief. Queen Victoria had owned a piano decorated in a similar manner almost twenty years earlier.

One of the comment for this piece:
I remember that this piece was my parents' wedding song... However, they divorced soon after my brother entered preschool, and I felt very depressed at that time. Since I was also learning piano, I was told to learn this piece. And the surprising thing was that, it was my father, the one who wanted to leave the family, who told me to learn this piece for my mother as it was her favourite piano piece. This may be such a small gesture, but it showed me... See More

This may be such a small gesture, but it showed me that no matter what, he still cared and loved my mum... even after he left around 6 years ago, I still remember how to play this piece, and I don't think I will ever forget. ❤️

Music can touch that deepest portion of the soul where nothing else can reach....
