The pretty piano shown above has been restored recently in our workshop. It is something of a rarity - an eighteenth-century piano made by Pierre Garnier in Bordeaux. More information [Further information added 16 July 2014]

Recently added: It is very rare for any 18th century piano to be linked positively with the original owner. But see left column 'Mrs Northey's piano' for a feature on a special instrument specifically mentioned in John Broadwood's own Journal.

NEWS: the most interesting piano to emerge this year is an extraordinary, compact 'square piano' bearing the label of Genoyer, a music seller and organist in Marseilles. See the item in our left side bar.
