THE HITS OF QUEEN AND LADY GAGA’S “SHALLOW”; LE ROSSIGNOL ÉPERDU — FRENCH POEMS FOR PIANO; STEINWAY IMMORTAL ARTUR SCHNABEL
STEINWAY & SONS SPIRIO, the world’s finest high resolution player piano catches up with music celebrated at this year’s Academy Awards, featuring a set of the music of Queen (including ""Bohemian Rhapsody"") as well as Lady Gaga’s ""Shallow,"" from A Star is Born performed by Simon Mulligan.
Reynaldo Hahn’s Le Rossignol éperdu is an enchanting and diverse collection of French miniatures — 53 poems for piano arranged in four volumes. The entire set, sometimes compared to Mendelssohn’s Songs Without Words, is released this month featuring Korean pianist Yoonie Han.
We have recreated two Beethoven performances from Steinway Immortal Artur Schnabel — the slow movement of the “Moonlight” Sonata (from 1933), and the brief Op. 19 Bagatelle No. 6 from 1938. We also highlight Schnabel’s substantial work as a composer, with some of his early piano works performed by Jenny Lin.
There is more Beethoven from Hong Kong–based pianist Warren Lee, who performs the Op. 109 Sonata. And Jean-Michel Bernard returns with two soulful tracks of Ray Charles.
Our April SPIRIOSYNC video features another STEINWAY IMMORTAL, Jazz Legend Bill Evans, playing two short original tunes, “Very Early” and “My Bells.
