If you've been thinking about purchasing a piano, and money is no object, here are a couple of options.
You could get a hand-made Estonian piano, with a sound board made from "spruce harvested from the European Alps." (Are there other kinds of Alps?)
Or if the sky is really the limit, you could bid on the red Steinway grand that Lang Lang played in Central Park Tuesday night with the New York Philharmonic. Proceeds of the auction go to relief for earthquake victims in China.
