Steinway & Sons was founded in 1853 by German immigrant Henry Engelhard Steinway in a Manhattan loft on Varick Street. Over the next thirty years, Henry and his sons, C. F. Theodore, Charles, Henry Jr., William, and Albert, developed the modern piano. They built their pianos one at a time, applying skills that were handed down from master to apprentice, generation after generation. Steinway is dedicated to the ideal of making the finest pianos in the world. A Steinway grand piano takes nearly a year to create. Nothing is hurried. Even the carefully selected woods employed in the rims, tops, soundboards, and actions cure for months in their yard, kilns and conditioning rooms, until they stabilize at a rigidly specified moisture content. The results are instruments renowned for their unsurpassed quality; pianos with such superior sound and responsive touch that they enchant the most demanding pianists.
