London Visiting Steinways

Steinways Pianos and Human Harps

Harpist Olivia Jageurs, documentarian Jesse Lawrence and Di met at Steinways in London, to explore the similarities between the latest version of the Human Harp and a piano...

We were very lucky to meet Steinway’s chief technician Ulrich who kindly spent a couple of hours revealing and explaining the beautiful inner engineering of a Steinway concert grand.

“There is no one individual who can answer the question ‘how do you play a suspension bridge’ so it made sense to speak to a specialist like Ulrich who understands the inner workings of a piano – which behaves in a similar way to our new design” ┬áDi Mainstone
