In an October event that was among the first held in front of a live audience at the University College Cork (UCC) since the beginning of the pandemic, recently appointed first-ever UCC/Ritmüller Classical Artist in Residence David Syme delivered a diverse repertoire of Classical, Baroque, and Irish Traditional music. He performed the program on a 9’ 2” Ritmüller RS280 Concert Grand specially provided by the Pearl River Piano Group in the stunning surrounds of UCC’s historic Aula Maxima facility which dates from 1847.

With its extra-long keyboard action, proprietary triplex scaling, an enlarged, climate-resistant soundboard made of AAA grade Bavarian/Bohemian spruce, German-made Röslau, and Pitthan Draht high-performance strings, and custom-made Renner hammers with merino wool felt, the RS280 excels in its sound quality and tuning stability.
