The Best of 2020, Indian Ragas, Parrino Pop, Georgian Film Music & the Great Mieczysław Horszowski
Steinway & Sons Spirio, the world’s finest high resolution player piano, delivers our favorite tracks released in 2020. There are extended playlists for Pop, Classical and Jazz & Show Tunes that include the most popular tracks of the year — as well music you may have missed.
We also highlight new performances from the remarkable pianist Utsav Lal, whose unique pianism brings the art of Indian classical music to the keyboard. This includes a SpirioSync video of a performance of one of the most famous Thumri ever composed.
Steinway Immortal Mieczysław Horszowski had one of the longest careers of any artist in any medium, and his musical training has a direct lineage to Frédéric Chopin. Chopin's Impromptu, Op. 29 No. 1 is this month’s second SpirioSync video, re-created from a 1987 Tokyo broadcast when Horszowski was 95 years old.
Giya Kancheli’s Simple Music for Piano is a charming collection of miniatures, created from themes of classic Georgian plays and cinema, performed for Spirio by Jenny Lin.
There are more pop tracks from YouTube sensation Francesco Parrino, while Antonio Pompa-Baldi plays the music of Ottorino Respighi — the Valse Carresante and a solo piano arrangement of the B minor violin Sonata.
