From the liner notes;
"Delicate French piano pieces on a 12-foot piano? Well, as David Rubenstein, the builder of this piano has pointed out, the advantage of the larger piano is its tone quality rather than its loudness. Longer strings will produce purer tones than shorter strings, and the listener will hear this most prominently on long, sustained notes. It was clearly a sense of mission that guided David in building the world's longest commercially available piano. When I asked him why he built it, his reply was that he had to. With prior experience in boat-building and cabinetry, but none in piano-building, he learned the necessary mathematics. After working on the instrument for three years, he produced the grandest piano. It is unique and formidable. Pianists will find the touch very responsive, and it is hoped that this piano will have a long life in the world of concert appreciation."
