Garik Pedersen

Steinway Artist Since 2008

“When you are at the mercy of wood, metal, and felt to express the full spectrum of your feelings, you learn to appreciate an instrument that becomes your “voice”, and the one that can even spark your imagination and bring you to new heights of musical expression. For me, that instrument is a Steinway. Steinway pianos have character, and each piano has its own personality. As my words suggest, I approach the Steinway as a living being: I get to know who it is and what it wants from me. A good Steinway piano collaborates with me in performance, teaching me how to project the message of the music. I love the richness from bass to treble, the way sound blooms after I strike the key and the beauty available throughout the dynamic range of the instrument.”
