We seek to rediscover the art of the piano as the composer heard it on the instruments of the time;  to collect and study the instruments themselves, conserving many for history, and performing on many, so we might rediscover history’s magic.  We exhibit and curate instruments, tell the great stories of piano and society, and study the history of the piano, its technology and its builders.

Danny Holt has been called “exceptional” by the Los Angeles Times, and The Record (Waterloo, Ontario) described him as “the classical music equivalent of an extreme sports athlete.” He brings his boundless energy and wit to performances of classical repertoire as well as music by the composers of today. He has performed in venues such as Carnegie Hall, Walt Disney Concert Hall, and the Hollywood Bowl, and has performed with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Bang on a Can All-Stars, and Blue Man Group, among others. Gramophone called Holt's Fast Jump CD (Innova Recordings, 2009) “a compelling showcase for Holt's innate virtuosity and gregarious temperament” and Holt has released five CDs in subsequent years. Although he is known as a specialist in contemporary repertoire, he is also passionate about historical keyboard instruments and performance practice of the 18th & 19th centuries.
