The virtuoso in shock: the Removers lost piano, to 1.3 million.

The canadian classical pianist Angela Hawitt bemoaning the loss of the unique piano, which she describes as her 'best friend'. It writes The Guardian.

Hawitt had just been with the piano in Berlin for recording of the Beethoven.

The expensive accident happened when the flyttemændene tried to lift the 590 kg heavy piano up on a cart. The fall struck the piano's iron frame warped and got the lid to split in two. It was not to save.

- It does not make sense, financial or artistic, to rebuild the piano. It is 'kaput', says Hawitt.

the grand Piano with the name F278 Fazioli had a value of 150,000 pounds, equivalent to 1.3 million dollars. It was built in Venice in the beginning of the 00's.

It was unique, as it had four pedals. The producer Paolo Fazioli says he will never make pianos with four pedals again as it was 'skidesvært to make'.

Flyttemændene, which was specialized in the transport of musical instruments, had in 35 years have never experienced something similar.

- She is a flyglets goddess. If it went on the auction before the accident, it would be able to give a very big profit, says Terence Lewis, who is the supplier of the famous instrumentmærke.
