West Music is proud to announce the regional tour to showcase the personal Steinway & Sons grand piano of one of classical music’s most revered artists, Van Cliburn, which will include several locations in Iowa and Illinois. The stunning Model D, Serial #443530, was a personal favorite of Cliburn’s, and accompanied him to the great stages of the world for some of his most memorable performances.
Cliburn’s piano was completed in 1976 at the Steinway & Sons factory in Astoria, New York. It was selected into Steinway’s famed Concert & Artist piano inventory, where it received its new moniker: CD 375. It quickly became a favorite of Cliburn’s, and he purchased it for his own collection at the first opportunity. Although Van Cliburn owned many Steinway pianos, this one was played by him as much or more than any in his collection over the years.
See (and play!) this amazing one-of-a-kind instrument for yourself at a West Music location near you.
