Henry Steinway

Birth of a Legend

Pianists have always regarded the concert grands of Steinway & Sons as the best in the world, which is why these instruments stand in 98 percent of all concert halls across the globe. The pianos, which are comprised of more than 12,000 individual parts, are still produced primarily by hand in Steinway’s factories in New York and Hamburg.
