Piano-fortes

Broadwood „Short Drawing Room Grand N° 2020 Broadwood piano
Date added: 2017-10-04
Built ca 1875
Serial number: 10408
Nameboard : "John Broadwood & Sons London"
Pitch: a1 = 436 Hz
85 keys: 7 octaves, AAA - a4
Parallel stringing
Length : 235 cm
Width : 137 cm
Complete in orgininal and playable state.
Typical Broadwood "duck feet" pedals : 1 una corda - 1 damping
Original rectangular tuning pins
Wrest plank in good condition
Keyboard in ivory and ebony.
The action is the typical English action of the 19th century, the precursor to the Erard and modern actions, as opposed to the Viennese action used by German and Austrian builders of the time. The English grand action provides a very direct and powerful connection from player to string and was favoured by Chopin for that reason.
Fnished in a tortoise-shell burl walnut, with ebony and rosewood trim.
Other distinctive features of this piano are the “lyre-shaped” pedal works, hence the reason they are now referred to as the pedal lyre, and the slim shape resembling a harpsichord more than the modern grand piano shape. The legs have a tapered shaft of hexagonal section, and has a carved capital fascia of acanthus leaves.
Location: The instrument can be seen in Leuven
Price: 11,500 EUR (transport not included)
