"During the course of performing and recording as well as selecting a Steinway for my home, I have had the opportunity to play many different Steinway instruments of varied size and vintage. Each Steinway has its own distinct musical personality, quite different from all the others. Yet taken as a group, the difference between a Steinway and any other piano is even greater. I consider myself privileged to own one. I plan to use only Steinway pianos in my professional career."
