For these concerts we will use an 1885 Erard
Grand Piano. Because of the period in which it was built this is, essentially, a modern instrument.

But why not a Steinway? (Or something, like that?)

The answer: almost all the romantic composers grew up with pianos that were straight strung like the Erard and not like the cross strung Steinways and their ilk who would later win the battle.

The difference? Straight strung Grand Pianos sound brighter and have a different timbre in each register. Cross Strung pianos sound smoother.
