We are sending our Chickering 195cm Rosewood grand piano to the Jerusalem Piano Festival for a demonstration and lecture on October 25, 2018 at 17:30. This piano was chosen as it is the same make and model as Glenn Gould‘s personal and favourite piano.
As a friend and colleague of Glenn Gould’s piano technician, Steve Jackson has many insights to Mr. Gould’s preference for this piano and how he adjusted his other pianos.
The Chickering, fully restored by Steve Jackson Pianos, has a hand made Edwin Brown action. This action has a lighter and faster touch than a modern Erard action.
A demonstration of the best romantic music recorded by Gould will be performed to showcase the music and style and piano of Glenn Gould
