3 Concert Grands, 2 Music Festivals, 1 Amazing Team!

Steinway D Extravaganza










Recently Theme & Variations Piano Services were able to supply both the Canberra International Music Festival and the Kangaroo Valley Arts Festival with Steinway Concert Grands for all of their piano performances. Many notable pianists graced the ‘ivory keys’ during these two festivals, including:


Simon Tedeschi, Ian Munro, Clemens Leske, Daniel de Borah, Anna Goldsworthy, Kevin Hunt, Bernadette Harvey, Kotaro Nagano, Arnan Wiesel, Lisa Moore, Nicholas Mathew, Maria Mazo, Stephanie McCallum, Alex Raineri, Gabi Sultana, Nicholas Young and James Huntingford…to name a few.


Theme & Variations Director Ara Vartoukian and concert technician Julian Morgan-Smith were the piano technicians on the ground during the festivals, and completed nearly 40 tunings between the 1st – 10th of May.


Apart from being the National Steinway Accredited Technicians for Australia, Theme & Variations also enjoy being the only organisation in Australia that has a whopping SIX Steinway 9-foot Concert Grands available for hire at any given time. Rarely does the concert scenario occur where all are needed at once…but if it does, we are ready, willing and able, with our team of expert technicians on stand-by.


Our hire fleet of pianos include many other models of grands and uprights, and are available for concerts, recordings, parties, weddings, etc. To hire one of our superior quality instruments, simply email us at:
