Legendary piano company Steinway & Sons was founded in 1853 by German immigrant Henry Engelhard Steinway and his sons in New York City, which was at the time one of the major centers of the piano-making industry in North America. Henry was a master piano-maker and built his first piano in the kitchen of his home in Germany.
Henry and his sons developed the modern piano over the next four decades, patenting the most significant technologies in the piano industry. Legendary pianists such as Paderewski, Rachmaninoff, as well as prominent contemporary pianists — Ramsey Lewis, Roger Williams, Billy Joel, Harry Connick Jr., Diana Krall, among others are part of the 1,300 performers that are counted among the honorable title-holders of “Steinway Artists.”
In 2003, Steinway created the 150th anniversary of its hugely popular Model B grand piano.
“A recreation of the instrument used by the famous Polish pianist Ignace Jan Paderewski on his dazzling concert tour of America in 1892-93. Among the striking period details are the carved, fluted legs and the exquisitely carved music desk incorporating a Steinway Lyre in the centre reflecting the elegant and classical Victorian furniture design of the late 19th century.”Steinway & Sons
