Sylvia composes and plays on an Imperial –Aliquot-
"Julius Blüthner" Piano.
This piano is one of the super-high end European pianos.
The Blüthner has been the appointed
official piano to many European royal courts including those of the German
Kaiser, Queen Victoria, the Russian Tsar, the Danish King, the Turkish Sultan,
and the King of Saxony.
Because of its glorious pure bell like
sounds; the ability to produce ethereal sounds; and, its exceptional control;
the Blüthner has been the ‘favorite’ of many artists. Composers like Liszt,
Brahms, Wagner, Tschaikowsky, Debussy, Shostakovich, Lloyd Weber, and even the
Beatles composed much of their music on Blüthner pianos.
