Young Steinway Artists
At piano competitions, music festivals and concerts, young pianists often express their desire to become Steinway Artists, to join the celebrated community of today's most acclaimed pianists. Our artist family encompasses all genres of music, from classical, jazz, cabaret and pop, including artists such as Martha Argerich and Krystian Zimerman, Ahmad Jamal and Diana Krall, Billy Joel and Bruce Hornsby.
Often a formal affiliation with Steinway & Sons has not been possible for an emerging artist, since all Steinway Artists must personally own a Steinway piano. The financial realities of developing a career can often make that requirement difficult for many otherwise deserving young musicians. Steinway & Sons has always taken pride in its role of nurturing talent and promoting the art of piano playing. In that spirit, Steinway has developed a new program in an effort to reach out to young pianists at an early point in burgeoning careers. This program, "Young Steinway Artist", confers upon a select group of talented musicians the distinction of affiliation with the Steinway Artist family, and access to the worldwide resources of Steinway & Sons and its exclusive network of dealers.
The Young Steinway Artist program will consider all pianists who own an instrument from the Family of Steinway-Designed Pianos, which include not only the Steinway Piano, but the Boston and Essex lines as well. The Steinway piano is heard on the stages of prestigious international concert venues and is the preferred instrument of 98% of the world's concert pianists. The Boston and Essex pianos, affordably priced instruments built to the specifications of Steinway & Sons, are found throughout the world in the most prestigious schools, conservatories, music festivals, houses of worship, and teaching studios.
