Again,  I'd like to thank JStorey for doing all this work.   Find it very interesting and very well thought out.

I wonder whether the Romanovs brought much music with them? Unless they had been talented at memory work or had good ears to play the piano, they must have been deprived of much of their previous enjoyment.

Ah, Dmitri, you sly fellow.  I believe you may have come up with a plausible answer to a nagging question of mine:  why didn't the Imperial Family object to the removal of the piano from the drawing room into the Commandant's room?  A number of theories abound (ranging from "they were helpless to object", to "the quality of this particular piano was beneath them"), but perhaps it was simply because they lacked the sheet music to play anything.  If you don't mind I'm going to copy this and paste in the "Piano in the Ipatiev House" thread.

Here's another old render of the exterior of the house, as with the other some of the geometry .etc is in-correct. Does anyone have any photographs of the piano, or know what model it was? I'm trying to get as much of the interior for the 3d model as authentic as possible.

Just thought it is probably necessary to put in the high fence that was built around the house for your work to be relevant to the time when the Romanovs were imprisoned in the Ipatiev House.

Yeah, I built another version of the Ipatiev House which will be on my website, that particular Ipatiev House model has a few versions of the fences according to differant periods of the Romanov's imprisonment. Thanks for the heads up about that anyway dmitri!

I have always wondered why photos of other rooms of IH wasn't taken - or they were, but they aren't published.

Olga was able to play well by ear. If I recall correctly, Anna Vyrubova mentions this in her memoirs.

And not only her. Also Sophie Buxhoeveden noted that down. And one of the guards mentioned, that whenever Olga played the piano in Ipatiev house, she would choose something melancholic and sad... - whic doesn´t go very well with another statement, that the girls were made to play the revolutionary songs.

That's I have heard/read too. Also, one girl sang beautiful, according to father Storozhev. Also, piano was indeed there. And sad melodies could be heard.

A further problem with that guard's testimony -- the piano was moved into the duty office before Olga even arrived in the Ipatiev house...

I know. It is confusing. One doesn´t really know what to think.

Only if Olga went sometimes to that duty office.  Anyway, Nikulin frequently came with one woman and 'played' piano there.
