Steinway & Sons Spirio Combines Modern Technology and Old-World Craftsmanship to Produce Live, In-Home Concerts
The Spirio is the world’s finest high-resolution player piano. A masterpiece of artistry and engineering for the home, Spirio enables music lovers to enjoy performances captured by great pianists—played with such nuance, power and passion that they are utterly indistinguishable from live performances.
“Anyone who appreciates live concert music will find Spirio performances to be completely enthralling. We are delighted to bring this extraordinary instrument to the Gate City and invite music lovers to visit our showroom to see and hear it for themselves,” says Mark Love, owner of Steinway Piano Gallery Greensboro, 1562 Highwoods Blvd.
The Spirio is a fully functioning piano, with the same level of painstaking craftsmanship that goes into every single instrument Steinway produces. Steinway craftsmen seamlessly install the technology at the time the piano is being built, ensuring no alteration in the exterior beauty or performance.
Each month, new music, videos and curated playlists are released and featured in the Spirio Spotlight. The high-resolution library of repertoire is recorded in the Steinway & Sons Studios by a roster of more than 1,700 Steinway artists, exclusively for the Spirio. The library also includes significant historical performances by such immortals as George Gershwin, Sergei Rachmaninoff and Art Tatum, to name a few.
The instrument’s high-resolution playback system uses proprietary software to precisely measure hammer velocity and proportional pedaling for both the damper pedal and soft pedal, thus revealing the subtlety and passion of the artist’s original performance.
Soft trills, delicate pedaling and thundering fortissimos are reproduced with unparalleled accuracy, delivering a precise revelation of the pianist’s entire range of motion and emotion.
The powerful Steinway sound, the ever-expanding content library and the high-resolution technology are all easily accessible through the Spirio app and complimentary iPad included with the purchase of the Spirio.
