Classical Notes

Red Piano Follow-Up

Posted at 10:58 AM on July 28, 2008 by Gillian Martin

About a week ago in Classical Notes I mentioned the red Steinway grand piano that Lang Lang was auctioning off on ebay, with proceeds to benefit the American Red Cross China Earthquake Relief fund.

Well, the auction closed yesterday--and there were no takers! I guess the opening bid of $165,000 was too intimidating. I wonder if he'll try again?
