The unveiling took place at a private event in the Kuhn Studio Gallery in Winston Salem, North Carolina. Guests were treated to musical performances as well as a chance to finally see the piano, the result of 2 years of work, up close.

Most of the glass pieces were created and assembled at the Kuhn Studio and shipped to the Bösendorfer factory in Wiener Neustadt. There they were inset into the case of the model 225 by Bösendorfer craftsmen. The piano was then air shipped to the Kuhn Studio where the final pieces were inserted into the case top. The result was a piano that sparkled with light reminiscent of light shining on diamonds.

“This piano is beyond words” said Kuhn. We knew it would turn out great, but nothing like this.”
This work of glass art at $ 1,2 million dollars and is available through Kuhn Studio and participating Bosendorfer dealers.
