4 years ago I was fortunate enough to visit Steinway and Sons' San Francisco store to see the piano that inspired this expansion of the Virtual Steinway Library. I met the elderly piano caretaker who lovingly kept the piano cleaned and tuned. He carefully took the keys off the piano so we could hear it play - it sounded amazing.
When I returned home I commissioned 8Dio to create a modern version of this awesome piano. It was important to me to preserve the original sound of the piano and make sure the dimensions were accurate. I was also able to add some of the custom morphs to the virtual piano - so you can now play it with other instruments or create entirely new timbres with just a single click. It has the same production and attention to details as the rest of the library. And as a tribute to the caretaker who took the piano out of the warehouse all those years ago.
A special thanks to Stefan and his wife Maria for their amazing support and help on this release. Stefan is a very talented piano technician from Koln, Germany, and has been working with Joseph since 2014. They brought the idea for the release to fruition, and now to you.
The sound of the piano was recorded with a battery powered H9D digital, that has a H9D-RE mic. This H9D mic can be found in many larger studios and is used worldwide. It is a unique microphone that has a ton of detail and a warm and rich sound. With this mic you can really hear the resonance of the strings.
We would like to thank Dafri , Komedia and 8dio for giving us the chance to be part of this project. Thanks to Komedia , the music clips are taken from the album Facing Our Fears by Komedia .
The venerable piano keys are made of ebony and have the original wooden hammers that were used in 1928. The piano has a bass register, and the extra-deep register, which makes the piano feel more sonorous when playing.
We were getting anxious, but couldn’t make ourselves disturb the piano. We went to the store’s back room and peeked into the instrument. The store had to let visitors in to see the piano because it has been closed to the public for years. We removed the dust cover, and we were amazed. We were moved. Steuben’s Steinway Piano is a real gem.
