World-class pianist Dong-Hyek Lim is playing the blues over his $140,000 concert instrument, which mysteriously went missing from the Trump Place condo he rents, the New York Daily News reported.

Lim, born in South Korea, sublet his $4,000-a-month home on the website HeyKorean.com; when Lim returned, the 1,000-pound Yamaha grand piano was gone.

The police have tracked the instrument to piano company on Long Island called Amadeus. The business, though, is refusing to return the piano because it has been sold a San Francisco man, who has paid $20,000 for shipping costs.

“I don’t have any insurance,” Lim, now studying under famed pianist Emanuel Ax at the Juilliard School, said. “Pianos don’t have insurance. Violins do. Violins can be stolen easily. A piano is not something you can put in your pocket.”
