Steinway & Sons Spirio, the world’s finest high resolution player piano, takes time out for the songs of summer and celebrates the birthday of the great modernist composer Claude Debussy. Steinway’s summer playlist celebrates the sun and the surf, but also rainbows, moonlight, nostalgia, and relaxing listening for lazy summer days.
This month’s Spirio Sync video embraces this mood, featuring Debussy’s famous moonlight melody “Clair de Lune” performed by the three women of the Five Browns in a magical setting.
The celebrated French pianist Pascal Rogé returns to Spirio this month, this time with his wife Ami, performing Debussy’s Petite Suite for four hands. And the Debussy homage continues with new performances of the ever-popular Children’s Corner played by Antonio Pompa-Baldi, who also performs the complete Book 2 Préludes, and the two Arabesques. Tania Tachkova plays the Images Set 1 and the famous prelude “La Fille aux cheveux de lin.”
Our new Steinway Immortal track features the legendary Van Cliburn performing Franz Liszt's Liebesträume. The notable Hungarian pianist Ádám György debuts on Spirio with two mellow tunes for summer. Antonio Guang Chen performs Chen Peixun’s famous “Autumn Moon on a Calm Lake”. Simon Mulligan completes a nostalgic set of music by Ivor Novello; Sunny Choi offers a short set of tunes by Alicia Keys; Jenny Lin performs Philip Glass’s “Mad Rush,” and Drew Petersen plays Samuel Barber’s formidable Piano Sonata.
