98% of the world’s active concert pianists choose to perform on Steinway pianos. But this is not to say that the Steinway is only open to the performing elite, the virtuosi of the stage – they are available for all those who demand uncompromising quality and the finest possible standard. As such Theme & Variations broke the record last year for the highest number of new Steinway & Sons piano sales for any individual dealership in Australia.
Theme & Variations Piano Services show that the demand for the world’s best piano has never been so high in Australia. Hand made to perfection in Hamburg, Germany, the crème de la crème of pianos are sought after by concert venues, schools and individuals who seek the very best. With the rise of people around the world sharing, creating, and performing music, the production of popular instruments such as the piano needs to keep pace. From January – July 2014, China alone imported 75,000 pianos from overseas. Steinway & Sons have just finished producing their 600,000th piano – with the demand showing no signs of slowing.
Our most Popular Piano of 2014
The most popular model of Steinway & Sons piano sold in Australia last year was the upright model K-132. This upright piano was more popular than many of the grand pianos, which leads us to believe that people want the very best, but may not have the space for a grand. The king of all uprights, this towering upright offers power and tone far superior to many grand pianos.
