Every guest has their own grand piano for the course, and we have some wonderful pianos to try out.
At 6′ 11″ (211 cm), it is the model that many professional pianists consider the perfect piano with a balance of power and size that makes it exceptionally versatile. The Model B continues to be produced in both the New York and Hamburg factories, where our particular model was made.
It is used at Finchcocks for recordings, recitals and masterclasses and is a firm favourite with our students.
Our 6’1″ Bechstein model A was constructed in 1910 and has just been restored for us at Finchcocks.
The piano has a fascinating provenance, and plays beautifully with a rich and natural tone.
Kohler and Campbell
Our small but mighty, 5ft 9in Kohler and Campbell, has a wonderful sonorous quality and was assembled by South Korean manufacturer Samick before being shipped to the United States to be finished by Kohler and Campbell’s master technicians.
Built in Broadwood‘s factory in central London in 1893, this is one of only six prototype barless grands that were made using a solid sheet of steel to form the frame.
This particular model was restored for us by Broadwood and Sons and is used regularly for concerts.
There are few families in the world that can claim to have created two world class piano brands. Our Grotrian Steinweg is a concert grand, and after a thorough restoration is sounding glorious.
