“The most important thing is to transform the piano from a percussive instrument into a singing instrument .... a singing tone is made up of shadows and colors and contrast.” Vladimir Horowitz
In essence, it is fundamentally simple: We take the finest, natural materials and combine them with principles of outstanding construction, resulting in an instrument that is alive. Horowitz gave
just this advice concerning the origins of a color-rich tone.
Even so, less than ten piano manufacturers in the entire world observe this method.Nearly all new pianos today have been produced as, and reduced to, the status of percussion instruments.
Adaptable, flexible sound production is a necessity of life for professional pianists.For anyone who plays the piano sound production is THE prerequisite for making music.
We cordially invite you to become familiar with our upright and grand pianos, each of which is constructed in the majestic tradition of handcrafted piano building. You may see them at your local Steingraeber dealer or pay a visit to our home salons in Festspielstadt Bayreuth.
We look forward to your visit!
