I am often asked about the history of a particular piano.  Potential buyers are intrigued about who owned the instrument and who has played on it - what we call ‘provenance’.

Heddle Nash may not be a household name nowadays but in the mid 20th century he was a ‘pop star’ of the operatic world.  A tenor with a voice known as ‘tenore di grazia’, he appeared in famous operas at the Royal Opera House and Glyndebourne in a career that lasted from 1924 to 1958.

Now you have the chance to own his piano - a real piece of history!

Steinway (c1927) A 5ft 7in Model M grand piano in a bright ebonised case on square tapered legs.  The piano has been re-polished in the past.  Originally owned by Heddle Nash, the lyric tenor singer. 

Estimate:  £8,000 - 12,000.
