HistoryThe Knabe family hosted the composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky in Baltimore after he appeared in New York at the grand opening of Carnegie Hall in 1890. Tchaikovsky played a Knabe piano at the opening celebration. Taking the train from New York to Baltimore, he was entertained with a lavish dinner hosted by the Knabes. In the composer's diary (which can be found at the Enoch Pratt Library a short walk from 829 Park Avenue), he noted that the evening consisted of delicious food and dull conversation.
