"My way is Steinway..."
[Hamburg, Germany. 2011]
...a motto not only for almost all famous pianists of all music genres. Steinway is also something very special for the about 350 employees of Steinway & Sons grand piano production in Hamburg Rondenbarg. Most of them remain loyal to the company, founded in New York in 1853, for a lifetime. Steinway & Sons bases on all of them the secret of the quality of it's pianos.
Each production step of a grand piano requires different skills and talents, even characters. While the media like to speak of a manufactory, the company prefers the term factory, as it can be noisy and dirty here too.
