Homage to great concert halls


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. Steinway & Sons continues to launch two further editions in 2014: the Dubai Opera Edition was inaugurated in January, the Philharmonie de Paris Edition was presented in May.


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 ...
