Murray Adaskin’s Heintzman Salon Grand Piano
Murray Adaskin’s 1960 Heintzman Salon Grand Piano is a storied instrument, as much for the many important works Adaskin composed and performed on it as for how many of the current generation of celebrated composers studied at this keyboard.
It was manufactured at the very apogee of Canada’s finest piano maker and has a gorgeous, warm sound. It truly is the crown jewel of our centre. It has been played by Sir Ernest MacMillan, Benjamin Britten, Mario Bernardi, and John Newmark among many others. It truly holds a unique place in BC’s musical history.
