Notes & Reviews:

This is the first CD recording made on the new Steingraeber Phoenix Piano. It was recorded at Hurstwood Farm Studios in Kent, England. The Phoenix system is a result for precise acoustic analysis and applying modern engineering techniques. It is the first of a production series of their "new millennium" bridge agraffe pianos, which offer better action, power, sustain and clarity. These instruments re-awake the spirit of seeking improvement in piano design which characterized makers and artists alike until the end of the 19th century.
