Steinway has a long history of collaborating with both designers and artists to create some of the most exquisite and provocative Art Case pianos in the world. Sometimes it’s a limited edition run of a certain model, each numbered and signed for authenticity. Sometimes it’s a bespoke piano commissioned by a private collector. And sometimes it’s a one-of-a-kind piece marking an important milestone or celebrating the vision of an inspired, talented artist or designer.
And so, here we have the extremely rare and elegant — one-of-a-kind — Steinway “Romance” created by Brooklyn-based designers Tiberio and Zoila Yepes. Known for their handmade custom furniture, the stated mission of the Yepes “aims to bridge functionality with the art of innovation.”
If you are drawn to luxurious wood veneers and love the art of marquetry, this piano will delight. The provenance provided by Steinway describes it most eloquently:
This exquisite art case piano features marquetry on all furniture components and veneers of sapele and holly. The rim is banded with figurative trim, with reversed fans of sapele slices comprising the outlined faces. The legs and lyre are curved, convex-shaped assemblies which include delicate carving and wonderful marquetry.
To add to this illustrious provenance is the signature of Henry Z. Steinway on the cast iron plate. Henry Z. was the last family member to serve as president of the company; he remained an active “ambassador” for them for many years after.
We can’t forget that this beautiful Art Case surrounds a 6’ 11” model B piano – arguably the most desired instrument Steinway builds to this day.
“Romance” is not for everyone and that is its appeal. Whether you are an advanced pianist who loves exotic Steinways or a non-player who collects rare, handcrafted American works of art, this lovely “Romance” might be exactly what you’re looking for.
