This incredible Baldwin SD-10 built in 1989 was the personal piano of Arthur Ferrante of the famous popular American piano duo Ferrante & Teicher. The duo performed between 1950 and 1980, recorded dozens of albums and scored several big U.S. hits. Ferrante, a Baldwin piano artist, hand selected this piano from Baldwin in 1990 and he owned it for the remainder of his life until his passing in 2009. The piano was personally signed by him, and the plate bears his signature as well as the signature of Charles Schulz, the creator of Linus, Shulz’ philosophical piano playing character in Peanuts.
The piano is in original condition and is one of the best concert grands we have received over the many years we have been in business. Upon inspection it was evident that this piano was very well cared for and properly maintained. The piano has been thoroughly inspected, serviced, and detailed by our shop technicians. The only work required was voicing of the hammers and regulation of the action, and tuning, all of which have been performed. The action is quick and responsive, offering wide dynamics and ability to produce a wide range of tone colors.
If you have ever played on a Baldwin SD-10 you will certainly appreciate the tremendous power and richness of the sound produced by this instrument. This piano represents American piano craftsmanship at its finest. Introduced in 1965, The revolutionary new SD10 Concert Grand was heralded as a major advancement in piano design. A music critic cited in a Time magazine article about the new piano exclaimed, “If Beethoven had had a piano like that, the course of music would have been radically altered.”
Artists such as Dave Brubeck, Earl Wild, Ferrante & Teicher, Liberace, Michael Feinstein and Bruce Hornsby, as well as organizations such as the Boston, Chicago, Cincinnati and Philadelphia orchestras have performed with and featured the SD10.
