Steingraeber & Söhne KG

Artists & References


Richard Wagner wrote that Steingraeber’s pianos were superb: “[...] vastly surpassing all other instruments of this kind that I have ever encountered."

An instrument maker without connections to composers and musicians would be like a physicist without a laboratory. Eduard Steingraeber had, luckily, already benefitted from Bayreuth’s location as one of the world’s greatest musical centers. 

Today, about seventy events take place at Steingraeber House each year. By keeping in touch with the times and with our musician friends, we constantly search for the perfect sound that each era calls forth.




Franz Liszt, Richard Wagner, Richard Strauss, Engelbert Humperdinck, Joseph Rubinstein, Wilhelm Kempff, Giuseppe Sinopoli, James Levine, Daniel Barenboim, Alfred Brendel and Cyprien Katsaris are among our customers.
