Pianos in the Washington Post

While I’m sure there are some listed for sale there, that’s not what I mean.

The September 5, 2015 edition of the Washington Post has articles on today’s piano manufacturers, and comments on the dominance of Steinway in the concert piano market.

You might also like to read the review of Stephen Hough’s recording of Grieg’s Lyric Pieces, the subject of an earlier post. Here’s a promo for the CD.

One thought on “Pianos in the Washington Post

  1. Very interesting articles. I think the versatility of Steinways is another factor in their success. All composers sound good on a Steinway, but maybe not the best on other instruments.
