With the release of Vladimir Horowitz playing Träumerei by Schumann, Steinway’s Spirio Library now offers the listener an opportunity to hear the over 1000 shadings and variations of dynamics which they could never realize outside a live performance.
Here is the heart of the matter: no other piano can whisper like a Steinway.
Many pianos play loud (not always pleasing toned, but capable of high volume).
Only Steinway give you rapturous, riotous fortissimissimo with such a sweet tone, and yet render so many tone-colors in between its ‘thunder’ and its ‘rain-drops’.
And it is that pianissississimo that Howowitz creates in Träumerei that reveals a truly amazing and faithful rendering of the Maestro’s singular sense of touch!!
The Spirio has indeed replicated the Spirit of so many wonderful performances.
With utterly flawless nuance! Here’s why:
Spirio’s high resolution playback system uses proprietary software to measure hammer velocity (up to 1020 dynamic levels at a rate of up to 800 samples per second) and proportional pedaling, for both the damper pedal and soft pedal (up to 256 pedal positions at a rate of up to 100 samples per second).
Did I mention a Streaming and Continuously Growing Catalog is Free with a Spirio?
A fantastic library of artist performances that is growing every month.
So many compelling reasons for Players and Non-Player alike to own one!
