The F278 Fazioli piano, the only one in the world fitted with four pedals, has enormous sentimental value for Hewitt and has been used for all her European recordings since 2003.
An irreplaceable Fazioli piano described by virtuoso Angela Hewitt as her "best companion" has been damaged beyond fix when it was dropped by movers in Germany.
"I adored this piano", she wrote. "I loved how it felt when I was recording - giving me the possibility to do anything I wanted", she said. From the iron frame to the lid, the instrument is "kaput", she said.
The musician plans to choose a new Fazioli piano at the company's headquarters in Sacile, Italy as soon as the founder presents her with some options, though Hewitt predicts it will take several months.
Hewitt said that while the piano was covered by insurance, although it would be months before she could would be able to get a new one. In 2007, movers delivering an $89,000 grand piano to the Two Moors Festival in Devon, southern England, dropped the instrument out of their van.

The handmade 1,300-pound instrument was inspected by the firm's Italian founder, Paolo Fazioli, who declared it "unsalvageable", Hewitt wrote, adding that she had used it for nearly all her recordings since 2003. It's kaputt. The movers of course were mortified. "In 35 years of doing their job, this had never happened before. It was my best friend, best companion", said Hewitt, who has played with orchestras across the globe. "The Fazioli is good for Bach", he said. The unusual addition, which she specifically requested from Fazioli, moves the little hammers closer to the strings, making the keys easier to play lightly.
"Indeed, her instrument was the only existing one with this peculiarity", wrote Turrin: "This represents a huge loss for Mrs. Hewitt". While Hewitt did not disclose who the movers were, Lewis said that she would not have let anyone she didn't trust move her piano. He estimated that a top-tier, custom-made Fazioli grand piano would cost somewhere between just under $200,000 to $250,000.
"It's an expensive piano", he said.
Hewitt told CNN she would not be commenting further "while the insurance saga is still in motion". She said she is confident she will find another piano to make her own.
