"I've owned and played Steinway pianos all my life. Both the Hamburg and the New York Steinway (I have both) are without equal. No other piano has a clearer more powerful bass. The top end in Steinways is never brittle or thin. It's the best Beethoven piano. It's the best Chopin piano. It's the best Bartok and Lutoslawski piano and it's the best Ray Charles piano. I like it too."
