An extremely rare, $194,000 grand piano was smashed when movers dropped it while taking it out of a recording studio, Canadian virtuoso Angela Hewitt has revealed.

Hewitt, one of the world’s leading classical pianists, said in a Facebook post that she had just finished recording Beethoven’s piano variations in Berlin when the movers entered the studio control room to tell her they had dropped her handmade Fazioli piano.

The pianist said it had taken her 10 days to share the “very sad piece of news” because it “has been such a shock to me that I didn’t immediately want to share it with the world.”
