In July, Steinway & Sons Spirio, the world’s finest high resolution player piano, explores the music of the classical world's most towering figure: Ludwig van Beethoven. From his ever-popular Für Elise to the beloved “Moonlight” Sonata to the magnificent “Emperor” Concerto, six hours of Beethoven are available on Spirio.
In contrast to Beethoven's drama, we also offer a diverse range of tunes in a playlist meant for quiet listening; contemplative, relaxing, and soothing: Steinway Chill. This soft blend of genres is your late-night listening set, or the perfect summer musical cool-down… some very cool music indeed, from Steinway.
This month’s Spirio Sync video features Beethoven’s “Pathéthique” Sonata as performed by the immensely gifted Korean pianist Sunwook Kim.
Rising virtuoso star Shen Lu brings us more Beethoven, namely his masterpiece, Opus 110, the Sonata No. 31 in A-flat, while Tania Tachkova offers Sonata No. 10, and Young-Ah Tak delivers Sonata No. 18. Stanislav Khristenko adds the unforgettable “Heroic” Polonaise of Chopin.
Krysthian Benitez debuts on Spirio with exotic repertoire from Alberto Ginastera and Antonio Estévez. Alan Feinberg performs a Schubert transcription by Godowsky; Warren Lee performs Tan Dun; and Meral Guneyman and Jed Distler expand the Spirio Standards with music by Billy Strayhorn, Duke Ellington, Dick Hyman and Bill Evans.
