“There are very few things in the world that are always reliable. For the pianist, a Steinway is one. For the pianist/producer, Steinway Chicago is the other.”
Hershey Felder – Steinway Artist



“As a Steinway Artist, it is always a joy to perform on the magnificent Steinways provided for me for my concerts. Aside from being the world's best pianos in terms of their tonal beauty and responsiveness of action, the Steinway Concert and Artist department instruments themselves are carefully selected, maintained and tuned to the highest concert hall level. I have always been able to effortlessly turn out my most musical performances when I have such fantastic pianos to perform on. This why it is my choice and a great honor to be a Steinway Artist. Thank you to all the people at the Steinway and Sons Chicago Concert and Artist Department for providing Chicago concert venues and artists with the best of the best!”

"The students of the Oakton Six Piano Ensemble appreciated the responsive action and the depth of the tones of the Steinway grand pianos, allowing them to play and sound their best for the Ensemble concerts".
Professor Glenna Sprague - Conductor and Director of the Oakton Six Piano Ensemble



"A huge thanks to Steinway for helping turn an afternoon musical concert into pure magic. Needing a most special piano for the afternoon, we went to Steinway knowing well of their exceptional pianos and service. Our family has several Steinway pianos including a Hamburg Steinway concert instrument, and includes many musicians. Yet the magnificent B that was brought to our event and then tuned perfectly was beyond imagination. Magical. Stunning to look at with its black lacquer glowing, the sound, tone and timbre that this elegant piano projected brought joy to both the pianists who had the great fortune of playing it, as well as the highly educated audience, who just raved about it too. Baroque and Classical and Jazz were all performed and the piano was a pure delight for each of them.

Thank you Steinway. What a remarkable instrument we shared that afternoon."
