Reincarnated Liberace sighted in Hong Kong

And here I thought very little had happened in grand piano design for the last century or so. How wrong can one be.

This Schimmel Pegasus Grand Piano was on display in a shop in Hong Kong's Times Square. It's a Colani design, done completely in high-gloss automobile lacquer (complete with American 60s type hood ornament - seriously) and according to Schimmel's website it's available in the standard grand piano colours jet black and mother-of-pearl white.

Trust a Hong Kong firm to order one in Ferrari red, of course.
