there should be no apostrophe in piano's in this sentence. It is simple plural, not possessive, and not short for IS (THE PIANO'S OUT OF TUNE is fine, as is THE PIANO'S LEGS NEED REPAIRING, but not PIANO'S HAVE A BEAUTIFUL SOUND)

Sorry if that's pedantic, but that's English grammar for you.

krásný zvuk?

That's accepted too. :)

Random fact alert: it's a reference to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Petrof (at least I believe so)

It wasn't when I tried it... :( but maybe I made a typo earlier in the sentence. I'll report it next time.

And I got the reference. I am a professional pianist myself ;-)

I agree with JohnBraga1. Please leave the apostrophe out of the sentence.
