Oksana Zotova... the pianist at the concert in Halifax made the statement to the audience after the performance:
"I want to thank Mason & Hamlin... this is the best piano I have ever played in my life."
This was unprompted and I was very shocked to hear this... she had never heard of Mason & Hamlin and was afraid about the whole performance until she sat down to practice that afternoon. She is from the Ukraine, played in Russia, Austria, etc. moving to Halifax six years ago. She has played regularly on the very piano (Steinway D) at the same concert hall, The Music Room. Mason & Hamlin wooed the crowd!
