Steingraeber & Sohne D-232 Semi-Concert Grand Piano can be thought of as the brother of the E-272 concert grand.
The family resemblance is immediately apparent in the shape of the outer casing: the piano’s sound reflection zones, symmetrical shape, tone modulation and tightly-controlled soundboard area – with a wide dynamic range from the softest pianissimo to the most energetic fortissimo – create an especially cantabile tone.
The capo d’astro bar extends across forty-six notes to just above the middle of the keyboard, so that only forty-two strings are bound by agraffes. This concept results in even more brilliance and resonance, and makes it the only model of its kind in the world.
Steingraeber & Sohne D-232 Semi-Concert Grand Piano is a solo and chamber music instrument best suited to medium-sized auditoriums.
At present, the most famous location for a Steingraeber D-232 Semi-Concert Grand Piano is at the Bagsværd Kirke in Copenhagen, a monument to twentieth-century architectural history.
Jørn Utzon, architect of the Sydney Opera House, conceived the design for this custom-made Steingraeber D-232, and his son Jan undertook the completion of the project at the Steingraeber workshops. Other important sites include universities of music and music academies from Brno to Dresden, Frankfurt, Karlsruhe, Munich, Vienna, and Stockholm.
All Steingraeber & Sohne pianos are handcrafted in Bayreuth, Bavaria using the time-honoured tradition of piano building and are among the finest instruments produced by an elite group of manufacturers.
Steingraeber & Sohne adhere to piano making principles that see their pianos deliver the finest quality in sound touch and appearance. Acoustics, statics, cabinetry, and action mechanism - these are all components of Classic piano building that views ALL components as sound sources and, without exception, uses natural, resonating materials that require custom adjustment and precision work.
This is where the ability to tailor or modify the sound of a Steingraber comes from. This extends to the Steingraeber action mechanism and pedals, which are built with a view to perceptible resonating energy, like an extension of the human body.
