The Flagship 6'1" Perzina Grand Piano that Christopher Tavernier is playing is the ultimate Chamber Piano. It's an exquisite performer, bringing an American-style bass response and a distinctly Western-European clarity to bear. An exacting level of finish, both in aesthetics and musical quality, makes this 6'1" instrument a dominant and substantial contender to the 21st century piano. Master technician, Keith Freeburg, tuned the piano to a well-tempered scale of Bach's time to the Equal Beating Victorian Temperament which favors the top half of the Circle of Fifths bringing out the various tone colors in the different keys. Christopher is the first International Perzina Artist in the company’s 144 year history.
