” . . . I took one look around the place (Ris Piano) and concluded that this was a man who loves and knows his pianos on a level that is reached by few human beings. I played the Steinway M for sale for about thirty seconds before deciding to buy it. . . . The piano . . . had been restored to near perfection, and Chris, much to his credit, was quick to point out its remaining imperfections. I had my own technician look at the piano and she quickly agreed: the restoration work was phenomenal. I didn’t bother haggling over the money because the asking price was very reasonable and it was clear Chris had put a ridiculous number of hours into restoring the 1927 Steinway M to its original glory. I’d hire him as a technician in a heartbeat. I’d recommend him as a tech in a heartbeat. And I’d buy a piano from him in a heartbeat.”
