We just shot a couple of videos of some very enjoyable music on a Steingraeber E 272 concert grand. This particular piano is a sold unit and recently delivered to a very lucky pianist. I think many here will really like the music and I would be surprised ( and impressed ) if anyone was familiar with the Rachmaninoff. Enjoy!

Holy moly-- that Rachmaninoff transcription is simultaneously adorable and powerful (and no, I'd never heard it before). The low bass on that E272 is pretty darned prodigious! Also, it's fun to hear a slightly different concert grand tone than what I expect to hear from the other S&S's (either factory). It may not be for everyone, but I appreciate that the choice exists in the marketplace.

Since I am the first person to reply to this thread, do I win the Piano Craft-sponsored C212 giveaway? I'll just PM you my address.

Keith, How would you describe the Steingraeber's tone? How would you compare it to Hamburg Steinway, Bechstein, and Faziolo? Thanks.

Dear Keith:
WOW !
You certainly got my attention. What a simply wonderful pianist. Who is he ? I thought that this kind-of playing was gone forever.
Oh, and your piano is splendid in every way. Bravo !
I'm so glad that you and Pianocraft exist.
Gratefully,
Karl Watson

I am glad you enjoyed the videos and I am especially glad you appreciated the pianist. He was an assistant piano prof at some little conservatory in Moscow smile He won a bunch of competitions back in the day including one of the top prizes at Kapell. He sounds even better in person.

I hope I don't sound too cliched here, but Steingraebers have lots and lots of color but are more neutral and even than a Steinway. They are darker than a Fazioli, but have some of the clarity.

A good Steingraeber allows the pianist to be very expressive and imaginative, and you feel very connected to the sound, more so than many other pianos.

Hard core Steinway fans, at least in their visits to PianoCraft, seem more open to what Steingraebers do than some of the other wonderful European pianos.
