Piano dilemma

The first thing people ask after I tell them that I'm moving to Holland is "What are you going to do about your piano?"

Ironically, it's the last question on my mind.

Perhaps it's Freudian, perhaps it's just plain difficult and contentious, what to do about my five foot six grand piano is not that simple.

It was because of my piano that I spent four months looking for a place to rent in London. Soon after I moved into my dream flat in the heart of London, my new neighbours asked me not to play the piano. I learned that 90% of the affordable residential dwellings in the Westminster and Victoria area were not sound proof.

I fell into the pianist's age old dilemma --- having a piano and not being able to play it. "You can have your piano, but not play it too.."

Since the cost of moving my grand piano easily paid for an upright, I was determined to buy a place to live. I spent a further five months hunting for a home to own.

Without this grand piano, what would my home be? It wouldn't be the same. As long as I want to cling on to my home, my possessions, and my existence in London, I need to have a piano living in the house.

It's an old German grand - and you don't get mahogany like that anymore. But I could easily find a better piano, for London is flooded with good old grands because of the shortage of living space and the introduction of sound-proof digital pianos.

Don't get me wrong. I'm not attached to this piano. But I do need a grand piano in Holland. I know the market for pianos in London but not in Holland. I don't know where to start to look for a piano on the European continent. But surely there must be more pianos there.

Why not move my piano to Holland? I've thought about that too. In fact, one of the piano movers that I called last week even thought about a paid vacation in Amsterdam. Four hundred pounds he said - to move my piano from ground floor to ground floor.

But then, I'd have to find another piano for my London home - and I won't be able to upgrade to a Steinway or a Borsendorfer.

To get me out of the decision dyslexia, I decided to advertise my grand piano for sale on the popular UK Piano Org site. No sooner said than done, I received a flood of enquiries, none of which asked to view the piano. I didn't realise selling grand pianos was such good business.
