PROGRAM MUNICIPAL AUDITORIUM Tuesday Eve., Oct. 13, 1925 PHILLIP GORDON concert pianist SYLVIA WEINSTEIN MARGULIS violinist, assisting artist Direction of Chickering Ampico Studios G. F. Johnson Piano Co. Portland, Oregon The Dignity of Age The Chickering Piano is rich in its history and tradition. For more than 100 years this great piano has been recognized the world over as the choice of great masters of the keyboard. The Chickering Piano was the joy and inspiration of Liszt. Liszt's association with the Chickering is one of happy memory for Chickering & Sons. The Chickering is America's oldest and most distinguished piano. All other modern pianos are patterned after the Chickering. The Chickerings used by Liszt are today treasured mementos of his career at the Royal Conservatory at Budapest. And at the home of the great pianist at Weimar, preserved intact as when he lived in it, the Chickering he loved is in its place in the silent Music Room of the master. It was of these pianos that Liszt wrote the most convincing and significant testimonial ever given to any piano maker. "To be just I must declare them perfect, and perfectissimes (superlatively perfect). There is no quality which is foreign to them. Your instruments possess in the supreme degree nobility and power of tone, elasticity and security of the touch, harmony, brilliancy, solidity, charms and prestige; and thus offer a harmonious ensemble of perfections, to the exclusion of all defects."—Liszt.
