August Förster 134K
One cannot resist calling this the BFG (Big Friendly Giant!). Even to those who have seen pianos in all shapes and sizes this is an instrument that is of large proportions, and of course it is not for use in a small apartment.
The 134K is, however, a special instrument and is not just big for effect. This piano plays like a grand piano with an action that responds with precision and tremendous effect. The tonal qualities are as from another planet – just like the John Williams score in Spielberg’s film! There is nothing run-of-the-mill about this piano and anyone wanting something distinctive need look no further.
Playing an upright piano means that one has the music score lower and closer than if one were seated at a grand piano. Not here. The music desk is ingeniously designed to be adjustable both in angle and distance from the player; it is also much higher that one would normally expect on an upright piano.
So if you are looking to go out and catch some dreams, this might be difficult to catch but it certainly won’t float away! One’s musical imagination would never be thwarted.
