Steinway Artist Since 2011

"Steinway pianos have not only an inherently beautiful sound, but one which is also infinitely malleable - so necessary to every artist. When playing a Steinway one is enabled to communicate directly with the soul of the music, without having to struggle with the unresponsiveness of an instrument that only nearly does the job. The perfection of the action means that it is possible to play many notes with one synthesized movement, which makes it much easier to create natural phrasing in long lines. My recent purchase of a Steinway Model B has given me an undreamt of range of colour: in particular I value not only the rich bass, but also the clarity of tone and especially a treble range that sings warmly, as well as glittering in a way unmatched by other makers.
It has changed my life!"
