The Sole Survivor: Sigal Music Museum will investigate the Johann Ehrlich grand piano, made circa 1815. The featured piano is the only known surviving instrument by Ehrlich and is in a state of advanced decay, but retains all of its original elements with no previous restorations.
Ehrlich was born in Jauer, Poland in 1782 and died in Vienna in 1832. Both Ehrlich and his son August were victims of the cholera epidemic. He was survived by his wife Josepha and seven children, none old enough to take up their family work. Reports from Vienna at that time indicate that his pianos were well thought of although he was a small-scale builder, making perhaps 4 or 5 instruments a year. It is estimated that he made about 100 pianos in his lifetime, such that perhaps one or two more will someday surface.
