A rare Bosendorfer piano, one of a series of only 15, has been donated to UC San Diego by a La Jollan who wishes to remain anonymous.
The piano's value is estimated at $30,000. It was designed and constructed by the highly regarded Bosendorfer piano company of Austria in the early 1960s.
The piano has been played in public only once, during a 1960 concert in New York City's Town Hall. UC San Diego's Department of Music Chairman Cecil Lytle said it will have its second public appearance sometime in the spring.
