Restored Steinway Featured at the Met

Dimitrios Klitsas, world-renowned custom wood carver, brought this 1882 Steinway Piano back to life after a series of shoddy repairs to the delicate purpleheart wood carvings. Designed by George A. Schastey, one of the most popular design firms among New York City’s Gilded Age elite, Klitsas fully restored the piano’s original woodwork with new carvings to replace all damaged elements. The finished piece was then showcased in an exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, a series of concerts played on this historic piano.
