ARTS and LETTERS By Jeffrey K. Chase
Piano Intrigues Its Owner

Discovering an old piano Von-
structed by the English firm of
Broadwood is just as exciting as
finding a Stradivarius violin in
somebody's attic. And just as un-
usual, too.
Barbara Holmquest, Ann Arbor
concert pianist, enjoys talking
about her recently discovered
Broadwood and its ramifications
on the performance of the late
seventeenth and early eighteenth
century piano music-especially
that of Beethoven.
"To make this particular Broad- ;
wood even more interesting," Miss
Holmquest said, "we know that
Beethoven was given a piano sim-
ilar to it in 1816. The serial num-
ber of Beethoven's instrument, is

were made per year.)
