The Model Louis XV
This Steinway & Sons Model A Grand Piano is in a Louis XV Rococo case style. The art case cabinet is in a gorgeous mahogany which has been restored with a stunning grain detail.
Nearly all Steinway Model A’s were made in the traditional black cabinet in the traditional design with square legs. This piano is one of the few Model A Steinways built in a hand carved Louis XV style cabinet. It is nearly impossible to find a Louis Style Steinway in today’s market.
Notes from a local pianist
“There’s something special about the tone of this piano. It’s clean and clear, but there’s also almost a crystalline quality to it, which can be heard most pronouncedly in the melody section. When those notes are played just right, sparkling magic ensues.
The touch is somewhat light, allowing fast, sweeping passages to glitter by, while still heavy enough to maintain stability.”
