Although it has frequently appeared all over Australia for local and overseas artists, our Stein fortepiano is most regularly heard in the pit for Opera Australia’s Sydney and Melbourne productions of Mozart, Rossini and Donizetti operas. The Fortepiano has toured around Australia twice for Richard Egarr playing concertos with the Australian Chamber Orchestra, made it to Beijing with Florilegium for the first fortepiano concerts in China, and even been heard in Bahrain with Freiburger Barockorchester directed by René Jacobs.
