The Landowska Steinway

Alan Fraser recently acquired a unique instrument: the 1942 New York Steinway B used by Wanda Landowska to record her immortal performances of several Mozart piano sonatas in the mid-1950′s. In mint condition and with the original hammers, this instrument has a sound like no other Steinway Fraser has heard. He plans an eventual “Hommage to Landowska” album featuring some of the same sonatas on the same instrument, but captured with modern day recording equipment.

For now however we offer these photos of the Landowska Steinway with her proud new owner.
