Steinway Spirio Spotlight – February 2020


Cole Porter on a Steinway, A 1990s Rock Rewind, Madonna’s pianist, & Virtuosic Fantasies

Cole Porter on a Steinway

This month STEINWAY & SONS SPIRIO, the world’s finest high resolution player piano, highlights an ongoing project that celebrates STEINWAY ARTIST Cole Porter, whose 1907 STEINWAY was recently restored at the New York STEINWAY FACTORY and will be on view back “home” at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel next year. Though there is very limited recorded material of Porter himself, there is a great group of STEINWAY ARTISTS who are recording his music for SPIRIO. This month we highlight the first collection, which we call Volume 1. Among others on this playlist is Adam Birnbaum, who plays I Love You and Just One of Those Things.


Adam also has more Jazz essentials for the catalog this month, which also includes the SPIRIO debut of West-coast based Alan Pasqua.

Rickey Pageot

Our Rock Rewind playlist this month focuses on tracks from the 1990s including, appropriately, Tori Amos’s Winter as well as the music of U2, Nirvana, Radiohead, Alanis Morissette, Blur, and The Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Pop icon Madonna has a talented young pianist named Ric’key Pageot who has recently spent time in the SPIRIO studio. This month we feature him in our SPIRIOSYNC video playing Evgeni’s Waltz, music from Madonna’s film W.E. He also shows off his classical talents with a rarely heard track from Cuthbert Harris.
The core classical catalog on SPIRIO continues to expand with the Op. 116 Fantasies by Brahms which round out our Virtuosic Fantasies playlist performed by Stanislav Khristenko. More Classical tracks include music of Chopin and Scarlatti with the SPIRIO debut of Steven Spooner.

Holiday Savings Event

Save now before the world’s leading pianos rise in cost on December 31, 2019

On December 31st this year, the price of all Steinway, Essex and Boston pianos will rise.

” Due to an increase in the time spent on every Steinway piano, an increase in the costs of some of the finest woods/materials, and our continued investments in technology and equipment to ensure that today’s Steinways are the best Steinways we have ever produced, we are compelled to increase the prices of our Steinway pianos for 2020.”

The best time to invest in a Steinway grand or piano is always the same: Now. Why? Because unavoidable price increases for new Steinways also increase the value of used pianos. A Steinway grand piano is a convincing investment: the company philosophy “To build the best piano possible” has always been the maxim of every Steinway employee. The masterful workmanship and its inimitable sound make a Steinway a dream of many musicians. The brand enjoys great international popularity as it has been valued for its perfection and innovation since 1853. These are the criteria that have made a Steinway an instrument that is valued worldwide: A 50-year-old Steinway can now achieve more than 9 times its original purchase price! 

Invest today and save thousands of dollars less than what it will cost in just a few weeks. Also, we are offering 0% up to 12 months on select upright and grand pianos within the Steinway family oac!

NEW Boston UP-120s Piano – Optimized Performance Upright

BostonUp120s
Boston UP-120s PEII

The NEW Boston UP-120S Performance Edition II is imbued with the classic Boston touch and tone and is optimized for any music room — at school or at home. Height: 47.5″

After extensive market research, Steinway & Sons has designed the Boston UP-120S PE-II, a new upright piano in the Boston line that fulfills the needs of serious students of piano and musicians of all ages, providing a wide range of tonal color and evenness of sound across the entire range of the keyboard.

The action and keyboard have been newly designed to maximize repetition and touch sensitivity, allowing the pianist to maximize the beautiful tonal color ranges of the piano. The UP-120S PE-II has among the largest back posts of any upright piano of its size.



Based on popular demand, the UP-120S PE-II is available in a high gloss Ebony Polish polyester finish, as well as a Walnut Satin lacquer finish. 

Boston uprights offer the same standards of excellence which characterize all instruments designed by STEINWAY & SONS. A Boston upright will give you the same opportunities to express your musical skill as a grand.

In comparison to other pianos, the Boston has lower string tension. This reduced string tension allows for a larger, tapered soundboard, creating longer sustain, and more singing quality in the tone (as well as longer piano life). A wealth of other engineering enhancements, including optimal placement of ribs, braces, and bridges, also contribute to the Boston’s superior tone and greater stability.

Each Boston piano soundboard is crafted of Sitka spruce, long proven to be the most resonant material available. Boston soundboards are also precisely tapered, which allows them to vibrate more freely. In conjunction with a number of special technologies — unique patents of STEINWAY & SONS — the result is a powerful, sustained tone.

For more information on Steinway’s website including all technical specifications: https://www.bostonpianos.com/pianos/boston/upright/up-120s-pe

Height: 120 cm (47 ⅜”)
Width: 151 cm (59 ¼”)
Depth: 64 cm (25″)
Net Weight: 253 kg (557 lb)

Please contact us today to view and hear this extraordinary new upright piano!
