Spirio Spotlight

A “Friends” Soundtrack, Steinway Immortal Lili Kraus, Chopin’s Impromptus, and a McCoy Tyner tribute with Benito Gonzalez

Steinway & Sons Spirio, the world’s finest high-resolution player piano, presents a set for fans of “Friends” — a collection of music associated with the popular sitcom — crafted to evoke the original songs featured in the series.

 

The elegant artistry of Steinway Immortal and Mozart specialist Lili Kraus is featured in a SpirioSync video of Mozart's “Menuetto” from the A Major Sonata, K 331, recreated from a 1961 broadcast from Montreal.

 

Steinway Immortal Glenn Gould performs the slow movement from Bach’s G Minor Concerto from a 1967 broadcast. And Spencer Myer returns to Spirio with the Four Impromptus of Frédéric Chopin as well as Debussy’s marvelous Suite Bergamasque.

The late McCoy Tyner, a giant of contemporary jazz, is honored this month by a new member of the Steinway Artist roster, Benito Gonzalez. Tyner’s legacy is very much alive with Benito’s high-energy performances of Sama Layuca (also on video) and Fly With the Wind, and include original works from his latest album — as well as the Coltrane classic, “Lazy Bird.”
