  Largest Grand Piano: Daniel Czapiewski sets world record

 SZYMBARK, POLAND--Polish businessman Daniel Czapiewski has unveiled a giant piano called "Stolëmowi Klawér", weighing nearly two tons and with a height of six meters - which sets the new world record for the Largest Grand Piano

  Daniel Czapiewski explained how it was built as the World's Largest Grand Piano was being prepared for its debut concert.

   "For me it is a difficult situation because normally I build (wooden) houses and a grand piano is unique. It is also made of wood, but the wood makes only for the shape, we had to engage many (piano making) masters out of Poland's best, who gladly agreed to help.
   The World's Largest Grand Piano was built by a few dozen people, it is a team effort and it was also made against the clock," Reuters quoted Czapiewski as saying.

  "We are receiving calls from people who would like to have it at a charity concert, a lot of people in Poland would like it to play at the inauguration of the European (Football) Championships and it is up to the task. You need to add that Gdansk, Wroclaw and other Polish cities are contenders for the title of World Cities of Culture. I think it would suit there perfectly," Czapiewski added.

  Names of famous Polish composers - Chopin, Moniuszko, Paderewski, Karlowicz, Szymanowski, Gorecki - are written on its legs.

  Polish contemporary piano artist Leszek Mozdzer was the first to play the instrument for the officials and a select audience.

   "This is the first time in my life I saw a grand piano that big and I think it was a huge goal for all the constructors because it's made from the very beginning. It's very new and I think it still needs two or three years to get together and get the right sound," Mozdzer said after the concert.

  Some of Czapiewski's previous projects include a house built upside down and the longest wooden board.

   He owns and manages a factory that manufactures wooden houses and is also an enthusiast of Polish history and promoter of the Kaszuby region.

   2010 was named the year of Polish composer Fryderyk Chopin in Poland as the country celebrated the 200th anniversary of the Polish composer's birth.

  The Guinness world record for the largest piano ensemble consisted of 555 participants led by conductor Lee Sun-Young at the '555 Fantastic Piano Festival' organised by Young Chang Co. Ltd (South Korea.

  Guinness World Records also recognized The most musicians to play the same piano world record: 15, when they played a short score composed by Antonio Macaluso (Italy) in Vallouise, France.
