The Music Department at the University of York in the UK have added five more Schimmel C120I upright pianos to their practice and rehearsal rooms, bringing the total number of Schimmel pianos they own to fourteen.
The University of York ranks consistently in the top ten ranked universities in the UK and is in the World Top 100. It was also awarded the prestigious 'University of the Year' award at the Times Higher Education Awards in London, 2010. They are focused on providing the highest quality of education, so it is understandable they chose Schimmel - the most awarded German piano in the world. For example, the C120I received one of the highest accolades from one of the leading French magazines for classical music. See details of the Le Monde de la Musique CHOC award here.
York University announced their Schimmel piano purchase on the York University website recently on the 9 February 2012, following a generous grant. The Vice Chancellor describes the pianos as popular among the students, high quality and most importantly for a university, 'The quality of weighting and tone in this German-built piano provides excellent preparation for performance on a concert grand. They have been toned to complement the acoustics of our practice rooms.'
