Peter Bence's new video, “The Awesome Piano,” is a colorful celebration of the piano and the titular track from his Steinway & Sons label debut.
“He Looked Beyond My Fault”
“Londonderry Air” is an Irish air originating in County Londonderry but well known throughout the world. The song “Danny Boy” uses the tune, with a set of lyrics written in the early 20th century. But the tune has also been employed for many hymns, most notably the Southern gospel hit “He Looked Beyond My Fault,” written by Dottie Rambo and recorded by her group, The Rambos, in 1968.
In the grand New Orleans spirit of melding musical traditions, jazz and gospel pianist and Steinway Artist Davell Crawford (aka “The Crown Prince of New Orleans”) offers, along with his stalwart chorus of New Orlenians and New Yorkers, his moving rendition of “He Looked Beyond My Fault,” featuring eminent gospel soloist Bridget Bazile.

Anderson & Roe Piano Duo
A love letter to the legendary Queen album, “A Night at the Opera,” the Anderson & Roe Piano Duo offers their most over-the-top music video yet: “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
Acclaimed Steinway Artists Anderson & Roe have created an epic two-piano cinematic reimagining—chock-full of opera characters and tropes throughout its three-act storyline—as part of Steinway & Sons’ Music & Vision series.
Freddie Mercury himself said: “We break a lot of rules. It’s unheard of to combine opera with a rock theme, my dear.” To come full circle, Anderson & Roe reclaim the classical roots of Queen's timeless hit, infusing it with playful nods to Wagner, Liszt, and 18th-century comedic opera. “Freddie Mercury was so overtly influenced by classical music,” note Anderson & Roe, “that it was especially exciting to tackle ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ as classical pianists, composers, and filmmakers. We’re sending our love back his way by celebrating the vision, pathos, rebellion, and flamboyance of this iconic song.”
