"This private collection, in Bristol, U.K., has grown in importance to be now one of the most significant in the British Isles. Nine of its early pianos are also on public display at the York Gate Collections in the Royal Academy of Music, London, where they are on permanent loan.
Kenneth Mobbs, formerly Senior Lecturer in Music at the University of Bristol, U.K., has recently also retired from professional keyboard recital activity. He is now issuing CDs of recordings of himself playing on instruments in his collection, and of other recitals by him playing on modern piano and organ.
Mary Mobbs, his wife, keen amateur musician and formerly professional harpsichord soundboard painter, has issued Letter Cards using photographs of some of the instruments she has decorated." See website for more info. (ed.)
