Easily the most pedigreed restored Steinway available anywhere. The piano was built in 1893 and was completely rebuilt & refinished ~2000. The restoration work on this piano was under the direction of the owner to spare no expense in order to built the best Steinway possible and was intended to be a future family heirloom. Challenging times later ensued for the owner and we were asked to resell the piano.

With the unlimited restoration budget, the restoration was actually performed by the great Franz Mohr, former chief technician at Steinway – who was also Vladimir Horowitz's personal technician – and his son Peter Mohr, formerly of Mason & Hamlin. It included a Bavarian spruce soundboard, quarter-sawn pin block, completely new action, new German keys / keyboard and a custom-bench with hand-turned legs to match the piano. The piano was also signed by the late great entertainer Steve Allen.

In the words of the Mohrs: "All work was done to strict Steinway & Sons standards and specifications in all aspects of its restoration as our goal was always to have each piano restored to a higher quality standard than when it was originally manufactured."

There is simply no better Steinway available anywhere.
