Megérkezett Veszprémbe a Steinway zongora


Veszprém Steinway piano was showed to the general public

The two and half year long fundraising had been ended successfully, and Veszprém had taken the exam to very good from togetherness. More Shorter

The City of Queens had obtained an international standard, premium quality musical instrument, which was showed before the general public on the evening of 25 January.

In a gala concert was showed before the Veszprém audience the Steinway & Sons grand piano, whose buying was by public subscription on the initiative of the Veszprém for Concert Hall Foundation and Veszprém Tourism Association.

After the Veszprém TV’s – showing the way of success – short film came next the evening first program: Hungarian Dance the composition of Pál Kadosa in the performance of Eszter Csilinkó. Eszter is the ten-year-old student of the Csermák Antal Music School. Beside her musical success she can be proud herself on that she was the first, who could play on the Veszprém piano before the audience.

 

According to the mayor not just the musical instrument is a miracle, but the way to the success, too. We can be proud to that we are part of this community.

 

Sándorné Neubauer, the president of the Veszprém Tourism Association, said that it is a great feeling to stand here with that awareness that before three years a group had dreamt became to reality. She said in her speech how many private person and organization with what manifold method supported the buying of the musical instrument.

 

We have got a Hangvilla, in which there is an orchestra and there are concerts, we should have a piano – Péter Kovács, the president of the Veszprém for Concert Hall had spoken from the idea and the excitement, which was felt when the fundraising had stopped for a small time, but strengthened again, and in the end there was nothing but they should travel to Hamburg and chose the city’s musical instrument.

 

The piano, which arrived in Veszprém, is the permanent part of the concert podium with its unique play technique of the Steinway & Sons piano. In the world’s concert halls the 95 per cent of the musicians choose Steinway piano. The artwork, which was in 80 per cent handmade and it has got about 17 000 pieces’, was showed by Jenő Nyári pianist, and he said that which points of view he had when he choose it.

 

Why Steinway is a Steinway and why just a Steinway is a Steinway? About 4 000 pianos had made in the company’s factory in Hamburg and New York every year. This is a low number, if we take into account that a Japanese company make a half million pianos every year.

 

However Steinway could maintain those values, which they began: handwork, accuracy and the consideration of quality over quantity.
