In the early 1980s, Oscar sat down on a piano bench and pressed a “record” button. He then poured the full power, joy and expression of his musical prowess into the performance of 13 tunes. These digital recordings, which captured extremely accurate key and pedal data of Peterson’s performances, have been meticulously rescued and converted to a modern-day format. With just one touch of a button, the instrument’s keys and pedals come alive, moving up and down to recreate Peterson’s original performances, just as he played them 40 years ago. The Oscar Peterson Signature Edition Player Grand with built-in Yamaha Disklavier technology is only available in the US and Canada.

Finish: Polished Ebony

Description:

In the late 1970s during a concert in Vienna, Peterson turned to his impresario, Norman Granz, with the words: “Dammit, Norman, where does this box go? I also gotta have such a thing!” This was the beginning of great friendship. Peterson not only treasured his own personally selected Bösendorfer Concert Grand  290 Imperial. He also performed at Bösendorfer’s 175th Anniversary Concert “A night in Vienna” at the Golden Hall of the Musikverein in Vienna. In 2002 he was honoured to receive the Bösendorfer Lifetime Achievement Award. The Oscar Peterson Signature Edition Grand was created in collaboration with the “Estate of Oscar Peterson” which preserves Peterson’s legacy. It is limited to 12 Bösendorfer Grands and is available in size 200 to 214VC . Each instrument will have a Collector’s Edition plate bearing Peterson’s lion logo and signature. Included with each instrument is a book “Oscar, With Love” with never before released compositions, all recorded in his home studio on his treasured Bösendorfer Imperial Piano.
