Homage to great concert halls
STEINWAY & SONS CONCERT HALL SERIES
Nine out of ten concert pianists insist on the Steinway when they perform on the stages of the world. And that’s why the Steinway Concert Hall Series was launched in 2018 to honour major concert halls in a very special way.
Each international concert hall is characterized by distinctive design elements, which are reflected in the design of the respective grand pianos and underline the hallmarks of the institutions once again. This extraordinary edition premiered in October 2018 with the Elbphilharmonie Edition, followed by the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra Edition in honour of the Shanghai Opera in 2019. The Steinway Royal Albert Hall Edition was officially unveiled on 23 September 2021 in London’s Royal Albert Hall. A new edition will be launched in January 2024 to honour the Dubai Opera.
As different as they are in their designs, all the grand pianos, which are always produced in a strictly limited number, have one thing in common: They also serve a charity project that is close to the heart of each institution, as Steinway & Sons supports every sale of a grand piano with a significant donation.
The fourth edition is already in the planning stage. And it will continue ...
ELBPHILHARMONIE LIMITED EDITION
The city of Hamburg, the production site of the Steinway & Sons grand and upright pianos, has acquired an impressive concert hall and new landmark with the Elbphilharmonie. In 2018, Steinway & Sons honours the Elbphilharmonie with a unique grand piano edition, whose music stand for example reflects the striking silhouette of the Elbphilharmonie.
THE SHANGHAI SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA LIMITED EDITION
With this series, Steinway & Sons pays tribute to the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra Hall in 2019. Consistent with the concept of the Steinway & Sons Concert Hall Series, architectural features are reflected in the design of the instruments and let them become unique collector's items. The only D grand piano is dedicated to the SSO (Shanghai Symphony Orchestra). Another 19 Spirio | r grand pianos Model B round off this exceptional edition.
THE STEINWAY ROYAL ALBERT HALL LIMITED EDITION
With a limited edition of one concert grand and seven grand pianos of the B-211 model, the 3rd edition is officially presented to the public on 23 September 2021. A ceremony is held to mark the reopening of the Royal Albert Hall after the pandemic and in particular its 150th anniversary. Sophisticated glass bead blasting applications are just some of the characterics of these grand pianos.
Dubai Opera Limited Edition
Limited to 7 Steinway concert grands D-274 and 7 Steinway grands Model B-211 , this series is not only an homage to the Dubai Opera but also to the 7 emirates that constitute the United Arab Emirates. The grand pianos are available either in white or black polished finish with elegant golden fittings and accents. The iconic Arabesque pattern of the Dubai Opera is applied on the inner lid. The music desk represents the traditional shape of dhow sailing vessels, whereas the legs and prop stick with their organic shape are inspired by the whirling sand dunes of Dubai.
