Christopher Taylor stands out as an innovative musician with a diverse array of talents and interests (including a summa cum laude mathematics degree from Harvard). One of those interests was in rebuilding the only dual-manual Steinway in existence (known as the Steinway–Moór Concert Grand). Built in the late 1920s and housed at the University of Wisconsin, where Taylor is a professor of piano, the restoration was completed by Steinway in 2007 and marked the beginning of a new stage in the instrument’s life. Mondavi Center audiences will recall Taylor’s jaw-dropping Mondavi Center performances of Messiaen’s Vingt Regards in 2008; he brings his prodigious talent and the unique Steinway-Moór to perform Bach’s Goldberg Variations in their entirety.
