Steinert Hall in the Boston Globe

Steinert Hall, the subterranean performance space that was built as part of the original Steinert Building in 1896 and served as one of Boston’s leading concert venues for nearly 50 years, was recently featured in a front-page article in the Boston Globe. The nostalgic article traced the history of the once-elegant hall, which has not hosted a public event in over 70 years.

Changing building codes and persistent water leaks (including a significant flood during construction of the Boston Common underground parking garage) have relegated Steinert Hall to duty as a storage space, while concerts and recitals have moved upstairs. While there has been occasional interest from outside groups for restoring Steinert Hall, the estimated $6 million cost remains a stumbling block. Steinert Hall remains a reminder of a time when the Boston music scene was among the world’s busiest and most prestigious.

The Piano in Home Design

A piano can be many things; a tool of the trade, a sentimental family heirloom, a piece of equipment. Yet there are many who see a piano as more than just an instrument, believing it can, and should be, the focus of beautiful home design.

The elegance of a piano extends beyond juLouis_XVst its musical qualities. The shape of the piano provides a contrast of both soft curves and sharp lines, while the polished wood often casts a beautiful light on the room. Because of the graceful design of the piano, more and more homeowners are treating them as works of art and making them a central part of their homes.

LaBarge Homes, a home improvement and design company based on Cape Cod, recently posted a blog talking about the use of pianos as a design element in a home. It was a response to a mailing that owner Todd LaBarge received from Vivian Handis at M. Steinert & Sons, entitled “Pianos in Art & Design”.

Todd provides an excellent perspective of the distinct beauty that a piano can add to a home. They provide a way to fill a large space with an eye-catching centerpiece, and if someone in the home can play (or if the piano is equipped with a self-playing PianoDisc feature) then the piano becomes both a visual centerpiece and dinnertime accompaniment.

Though Steinway pianos are often a feast for the eyes, they are known as an instrument that creates a magnificent sound while being a display of masterful craftsmanship. Those who create these pianos are artists, and their art, like any beautiful piece, should be proudly displayed. At M. Steinert & Sons, we’ve long understood the visual value of our pianos, and are always available to help you choose a model that compliments your home décor.
