(AU) Dr. Ralph Schureck, Australian fortepiano collector News segment on ABC

Contributed by Admin on May 09, 2009

“Music-loving psychiatrist, Dr. Ralph Schureck has brought together one of the most important collection in the world. He has the largest collection of early keyboards in Australia, and many are rare and have historical connections. Ralph says that the 1793 Stodart forte piano may have been played by Haydn himself, and is one of only a handful of early English pianos in existence, and the 1816 Broadwood grand piano is a model much loved by Beethoven.“
