STEINGRAEBER GRANDS STEINGRAEBER UPRIGHTS TWIST AND CHANGE

Grand Pianos ():

The designs of Steingraeber's four grand pianos are based upon more than 150 years' experience.

A-170, Salon Grand:

Steingraeber & Söhne Grand Piano - Model A-170
We do not see the 5’ 7” as a “baby grand,” because it makes a much “bigger” impression than its 170 cm would suggest; the volume of sound is a real surprise among this class of pianos. Its roots can be traced back to the 1905 instrument upon which its predecessor, model 168, was based. The A-170 sounds much bigger than it is and has many awards to prove it, including “Best in its Class” and even “Best up to 200 cm Long.” In terms of construction, this phenomenal result lies in the very long bass strings that are only possible because of its unusual side shape. However, the decisive factor is the classic bridge: Thanks to the provision of a “proper” bridge (i.e., without a bass bridge with apron and base that makes the instrument sound nasal), it is the only salon grand piano in the world which directly transmits vibrational energy, just like large concert grands. The touch is also professional quality. Thus, the 168 and A-170 are in use on stages, in conservatories, and opera houses that have limited space.
 

B-192, Salon Grand (since 2011):

A New Standard for Salon Grands from Steingraeber & Söhne.

In honour of the Liszt Anniversary, Steingraeber & Söhne unveiled a new 192 cm (6’3”) grand at the 2011 Bayreuth Festival. It is closely modeled on the Liszt grand, which is to say the Steingraeber C-212 and its predecessor, the 1873 Eduard Steingraeber 200.

The unique, distinctive features of a Steingraeber that immediately spring to mind are:

* straight bass bridge without suspension
* very long bass strings on a similar scale to those of a chamber music grand
* highly flexible bridges made of solid copper beech
* bearing bars in the treble registers for optimal mixing of partials
* precisely limited sounding board area by way of a far-reaching sound trap
* enhanced volume through very hard outer rims of layered beech wood (26 pcs. horizontal and 13 pcs. vertical)

In addition to discerning private clients, this new grand piano is particularly well suited to professionals and for use in music conservatories.
Besides the highly differentiated color spectrum that has become the hallmark of Steingraeber sound, clients often choose a Steingraeber because the mechanisms are both speedy and reliable. That is why so much value is placed on this grand piano’s affinity with its big brother, the C-212. In fact, it is such a priority that the actions of the C-212 and the B-192 are virtually identical!
 

C-212, the 7' Chamber Music Grand:

Steingraeber & Söhne Grand Piano - Model C-212

The C-212 was introduced at the beginning of 2009. It is the direct descendant of the Steingraeber Liszt Grand Piano, the legendary model 205. The bass has been enhanced and adapted to twenty-first century requirements, while the previous design has undergone only moderate alterations.

The allure of the Steingraeber 205, which has fascinated pianists like Franz Liszt, Richard Strauss, Engelbert Humperdinck and, more recently, Daniel Barenboim, has been preserved. Because of its differentiated sound spectrum and registers, this model is in use for lieder recitals, in recording studios and music conservatories (e.g., Munich, Paris, Hannover), and at New Music festivals.

 

D-232, Semi-Concert Grand:

The 7’7” is a classic, professional grand piano through and through, and was introduced as the little brother of the E-272 in 2008. The family resemblance is immediately apparent in the shape of the outer rim: sound reflection zones, the symmetrical shape, the precisely limited soundboard area which is conducive to an especially cantabile tone, and finely graded adaptability from the softest pianissimo to the most energetic fortissimo. The capo d’astro bar extends across forty-six notes to just above the middle of the keyboard and thus covers the largest pitch range of any piano. This concept stands for “greater brilliance and resonance” and is the only one of its kind in the worldwide piano market. Only forty-two notes pass through agraffes!

The D-232 is a solo and chamber music concert grand for mid-sized halls: Currently, the most famous place to hear one is in the Bagsværd Kirke in Copenhagen, a monument to twentieth-century architecture. Jørn Utzon, the architect of the Sydney Opera, designed both the church and the case for this custom-made Steingraeber D-232.

 

E-272, Concert Grand:

Steingraeber  & Söhne Grand Piano - Model E-272
The E-272 / 8’11”, based on the 265 concert grand from 1895, was redesigned between 1997 and 2002. Since then, many pianists have rated it one of the most distinctive and outstanding instruments on the market. Unique features include the unusual shape of the sound-reflecting rim, the star-shaped and half-timbered cross beams, and the “incredibly agreeable” (cit. Cyprien Katsaris) touch.
The most unusual feature, however, is the shape of the soundboard in the treble. The resonating space has been reconstructed according to the classic ratio between string length and resonating space. Thus, Steingraeber strings have 27% less wood mass to penetrate than comparable instruments! Even with softer hammers, this results in a clear, singing tone.
