  • This is very practical for ballet performances of Stravinsky’s ‘Les Noces’ (which requires 4 grand pianos) in theatres with small pits: you can do with two arc pianos and put 2 players in each. Also ideal for tours because light-weight.

    For piano teachers the arc piano is economically and disciplinary advantageous: you can teach 3 children in the same time since the keyboard consists of three complete keyboard ranges, and when they are locked-up in the instrument their behavior can be controlled quite easily. Parents can sigh with relief too because of the barrier which protects their offspring from indecent fumbling by the teachter.
