Pianos from East of Eastern Europe - i,e Russian/former USSR


I was listening to this on youtube, and could not identify the piano, but being played by a wonderful pianist from the former USSR, I thought this might be a Russian piano…

Then it struck me, I have not heard anything about pianos from this part of the world, with the exception of the Chernobyl piano samples…

With their long and cherished music culture, surely there must be some Eastern made pianos of really good quality, but I have not heard of any sampled pianos, from Russia.

The piano in this recording had a lot of character.


There is a book about that.


You are so resourceful. Thanks. I will read as much of the book as I can via google books
