Generally, most people play the piano because they want to and not because they have to (unless their parents make them:). Yes there are some musicians who do it for a living and therefore they have to and usually want to. But playing piano has always been a very personal experience in which one's deep personal feelings are satisfied by the experience they receive when playing their piano. So ultimately, owning a piano is a very personal choice based on a person's musical tastes and goals.
Sergei Rachmaninov, George Gershwin, david Foster, Jim Brickman, Keith Emerson, Bruce Hornsby, Scott Joplin, Barry Manilow, Yanni, Jerry Lee Lewis, Frederic Chopin, Vladimir Horowitz, and the list goes on and on. Beautiful, enjoyable, moving music from the piano players through the pianos they played on. Having a beautiful piano in the home was certainly a sign of status and success. But at the end of the day, it was all about the music and even if the
piano looked like a beat up piece of junk (as they did in many homes where wealth was not there but the desire to play piano was there, as long as music came out that moved you when you played it, that's all that really counted. I know many people who have or had old upright pianos that were not perfectly in tune, some of the keys were worn, and the piano cabinet had damage or was deteriorating, but the music was still beautiful to those people because they could not afford to pay for a new piano and/or the piano had sentimental value because it belonged to their Mother, Father, or close relative. Playing music comes from "within the soul" and not just from the page of sheet music, and when you play piano in that way, the need for the physical beauty of a $100,000 grand piano can disappear too.
