So Broadwood lives on!?

I read previously that the company Broadwood & Sons stopped making pianos a while ago, yet I visited the site of Yorkshire Pianos yesterday and amongst the makers of new pianos is Broadwood, with a few in its range.

I have always liked this slow ballad of his called Put You Together Again, in which the keyboard player played on a white baby grand in the original video. RIP P...
