The new piano is a $150,000 gift from Alan and Marilyn Korest, a Naples, Fla., couple who donated the glossy black nine-foot instrument in honor of their friends, Fenner Douglass and his late wife Jane.
Fenner Douglass, 85, was an Oberlin Conservatory professor from 1946 to 1974.
"I remember Horowitz's distinctive finger technique from my seat in the Finney gallery," Douglass said."The best played there and they still do."Before becoming a professor of organ at the conservatory, Douglass, who is living in Naples, Fla., earned a bachelor's degree at Oberlin in 1942.His wife, Jane, who passed away in 2005, also attended the school, graduating in 1953.
"Fenner is such a phenomenal man," Marilyn Korest said.
"Fenner is an inspiring person, a magnificent teacher," Stull said.
For the piano to honor Douglass, Oberlin music faculty members traveled to Hamburg, Germany, to select an instrument made in the factory there rather than New York.
