Au­ral Ex­pe­ri­ence

Augustman - - Prelude -

THIS IS­SUE IS ALL ABOUT IN­VEN­TION and we’re tak­ing a gi­ant leap back to the mid-19th cen­tury to thank one of the great­est pi­ano mak­ers of all time. Stein­way has been re­spon­si­ble for many mar­vel­lous in­no­va­tions in pi­ano tech­nol­ogy, the lat­est be­ing its self-play­ing sys­tem, the Spirio. For those of us who’ve yearned to own a Stein­way Model D, but who haven’t the abil­ity to bring out its true fi­nesse, the Spirio is sal­va­tion. Sim­ply se­lect what you want it to play, and it will do so with the deft­ness of a Lang Lang. Be it De­bussy, Chopin or Th­elo­nious Monk, the Spirio gets ev­ery del­i­cate touch just right. It cer­tainly gives a whole new mean­ing to fin­ger­ing the keys on cue.

Check out demos of the Spirio at Stein­way Gallery, Palais Re­nais­sance
