“I am very happy to be able to use two grand pianos in my classroom at the Hamburg Conservatoire that are of absolutely the same quality but still have very different sound characteristics: a Steinway & Sons A-188 and a Steingraeber & Söhne B-192 stand next to each other for my students and me and complement each other optimally. ” Ulrich Windfuhr
Artists and Friends from A to Z
Richard Wagner wrote that Steingraeber’s pianos were superb: “[…] vastly surpassing all other instruments of this kind that I have ever encountered.”
An instrument maker without connections to composers and musicians would be like a physicist without a laboratory. Eduard Steingraeber had, luckily, already benefitted from Bayreuth’s location as one of the world’s greatest musical centers.
Today, about seventy events take place at Steingraeber House each year. By keeping in touch with the times and with our musician friends, we constantly search for the perfect sound that each era calls forth.
