A Legend’s Piano Returns to T&V

Legends piano Returns

We welcome a stunning Steinway & Sons concert grand as we farewell a dear friend.



Southern Highlands businessman Ted Springett was well known not only for his business ventures and love of community, but also his passion for music. 


A long-time friend of Theme & Variations Piano Services, it was always Ted’s dream to own a magnificent piano from the stunning collection of Steinway & Sons grand pianos, and for him this became a reality many years ago when he purchased his first Steinway & Sons piano, a model B-211. In 2008, Ted took the opportunity to upgrade to a full model D-274 concert grand piano after it was first used in the Southern Highlands International Piano Competition. 


Springett 2You don’t have to go far to learn just how much of an impact Ted Springett and his family have had on the Bowral community and its surrounds. Simply typing Ted’s name into a Google search will reveal page after page testifying to Ted’s community spirit and his ongoing efforts to give back to the community through the establishment of the Springett Foundation, donation of property to various community ventures and much more. 


Aged 92, Ted Springett passed away at the end of 2012, and it is his family’s wish that his beloved Steinway piano be made available to somebody who can truly appreciate and love the instrument.
