Serious Pianists Choose Steinway

Chose Steinway During the 2018-19 Season.


Pianists performing with the world’s major symphonies continue to overwhelmingly choose STEINWAY & SONS, as evidenced by STEINWAY’S most recent symphony survey taken following each concert season to assess piano preference; during the 2018–19 season, over 97% of piano soloists performing with orchestras played on STEINWAYS.

The survey includes data from 794 performances with 100 orchestras around the world. These orchestras reported that 777 of their piano soloists performed on STEINWAY & SONS instruments. The rating is consistent with results of surveys throughout the last decade. STEINWAYS have never accounted for less than 95% of the performances reported in a given year. It is this data that consistently supports the assertion that STEINWAY is the choice of 9 out of 10 concert artists and is the preferred instrument of countless pianists, professional and amateur, throughout the world.
