Steinway & Sons Limited Edition
Steinway Commemorates A Legend
Akin to the songs of John Lennon, the Imagine Series is the perfect harmonization of music with creativity to achieve an end result greater than the sum of its parts. The Imagine Series Limited Edition is modeled after the white Steinway grand piano that Lennon presented to Yoko Ono on her birthday in 1971. Each piano incorporates Lennon’s signature, music, and a medallion indicating its uniqueness.
Seven Unique Limited Edition Series
The music desk of each piano incorporates one of seven unique John Lennon original drawings. “Come Together,” the title of the opening track on the Beatles’ historic Abbey Road album, reflects John Lennon's desire to bring people together. “Grand Piano” (no longer available) is a drawing that captures the songwriting process — as musician and piano become one. “Freda People” exemplifies John Lennon’s passion for using music for the benefit of mankind. “Self Portrait” (no longer available) is perhaps John Lennon’s most famous drawing — despite the simplicity, it's unmistakably John. “Borrowed Time” includes a sketch of an upright piano, such as the legendary Steinway on which Lennon composed “Imagine.” “Frog Pondering” perfectly demonstrates a blend of the creative and playful sides of Lennon. In “Power to the People,” we see a combination of Lennon’s love for freedom, as well as of New York, with his rendition of the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor.
The soundboard of every Imagine piano is graced by a full color decal, also based on a drawing from John Lennon.
A portion of the proceeds from every Imagine piano sold by Steinway & Sons will be donated to The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus.
