Searching for oldest Steinway piano. (Items of Interest).
Steinway has produced more than 563,000 Steinway pianos since its founding.
"Each and every Steinway piano ever produced has its own unique identity, personality and story," said Henry Z. Steinway, great grandson of the founder. "We're conducting this search because many of our pianos have been passed from one generation to the next."
Every Steinway piano has a serial number, and information is kept on record, including the day it was completed, the style, the craftsman who worked on it, as well as where and to whom it was sold.
The oldest Steinway grand and upright piano will be publicly announced during a three-night anniversary celebration series, June 5-7, 2003. Classical, jazz and pop concerts will be performed in Carnegie Hall by renowned Steinway artists.
The owner of the oldest Steinway may have his or her Steinway piano restored or replaced with a new or comparable Steinway piano.
Steinway owners may visit their local Steinway dealer to register their piano in the "Search for the Oldest Steinway" until May 1, 2003. They also may send a postcard with their name, address, phone number, e-mail and the piano serial number to the attention of "Search for the Oldest Steinway," c/o Steinway & Sons, 1 Steinway Pl., Long Island City, NY 11105.
