What Don’t You Know About Steinway History?
Many appreciate the grandeur, elegance, and superior tone of a fine Steinway & Sons instrument, but few are aware of the Steinway & Sons history begun by a revolutionary individual by the name of Heinrich Engelhard Steinweg (later known as Henry E. Steinway Sr) to make that magnificent concert instrument possible. Since 1853, no name has represented quality and elegance in music like Steinway & Sons. During their early days, the craftsmanship and musical qualities of their legendary pianos became cemented in history. Here is the story of Steinway.
