Fun Fact Friday, Number Eighty-Eight!

The category for today’s trivial imponderable is “music/instuments.”  Do you know . . . what is known as the Rolls Royce of pianos?

I’ll give you a hint: it is not a Steinway (which is what I would have guessed).  Rather, it is the Bösendorfer Imperial Grand (manufactured only in Vienna).  Side note: I actually had the opportunity to play a Bösendorfer Imperial Grand when I was traveling in Chíle many years ago . . .
