Bechstein

1995 EG8. Discovered 1995 Mar. 4 by F. Borngen at Tautenburg.

Carl Bechstein (1826-1900), born in the Thuringian town of Gotha {see, respectively, planets (934) and (1346)}, founded a piano factory in Berlin in 1853. His instruments were used by Liszt {see planet (3910)}, Biilow, Rubinstein and Wagner {see planet (3992)}. Branches of his factory in London, Paris and St. Petersburg testify to the esteem in which Bechstein's instruments are held. (M 38200)
