Welcome to the website of Michael Cole, instrument maker & piano historian

Here you'll find reliable and well-researched information about antique keyboard instruments, their music, and related topics. This site is frequently scanned and archived by the British Library.

News: A good video has recently appeared on Youtube featuring Clementi's Op 25/4 sonata played at a recital in Huddersfield by Andrew Brownell. More information: michael's blog.

Happily our youtube video featuring a Longman & Broderip piano has passed 2550 views. Hopefully it will continue to introduce more people to the charming sonorities of professionally restored instruments of this type.
