n.b.  In 1846, Liszt’s first choice of piano in Vienna was usually Streicher. Ravel’s own piano was an Erard, and Erard was the chief concert piano in Paris for about a century.
The photo accompanying the Liszt sonata is actually of the 1877 Erard played by Amira Acre in her September 20, 2015 concert.
