Sydney Symphony sells off Ashkenazy’s pianomain
Australia is an unsentimental country, gday and gnite.
Still, flogging off a maestro’s keyboard while the old bloke is still alive is pushing it a bit.
The Steinway in question was handpicked and autographed by Vladimir Ashkenazy for the concert hall of the Sydney Opera House in 1991. The building is about to undergo major refurbishments an they’re selling off some contents.
Anybody want a piano? Bid for it here.
Guess there’s no chance the maestro will come back for it.
