“Selling the finest Steinway pianos ever built...
Now open to the public, the craftsmen at Dallas Piano Restorations have been restoring Steinway pianos for over 30 years, for the Steinway & Sons factory in New York City, the University of North Texas, Baylor University, the State University of New York, and the New England Conservatory of Music.
My life’s mission is to save and restore as many of the world’s greatest pianos from Steinway & Sons’ glorious past as I can.—Lou Tasciotti, Technician Editor for The Piano Quarterly
