When I first started composing (about ten years ago) I had an ancient Lindeman Grand Piano in my living room. Lindemans were the second piano company in the U.S. The first U.S. piano manufacturer was Chickering. Back then, I composed a little set of pieces call "Animal Dances for Vintage Piano." Ants at the Picnic is one of the pieces from that little suite. And you can tell, this is, indeed, a vintage piano. This recording also predates my studio and I recorded this in my living room while my children were at school and my husband was at work. Will I ever re-record the Animal Dances on my Steinway? I doubt it. They wouldn't be for Vintage Piano any more. I still love the voice of that old Lindeman piano, which the Steinway dealer took straight to Nashville when I traded pianos. I wonder who is playing it now.
