“The Steinway piano, with its supreme craftsmanship, responsive touch and sonic richness, is in a league of its own. Unlike the machine-like homogeny of other piano brands, each Steinway possesses its own singular voice, personality, life force; there is something gloriously human about the myriad nuances inherent in each instrument. In my experience, a personal connection organically unfolds with every Steinway I have the privilege to explore. Playing a Steinway piano not only compels me to be more attuned to the sound world I create, but it ultimately empowers me with a sense of limitless possibilities, enabling me to access the expressive core of the music and to attain the pinnacle of inspired communication.”
