Over 80 years ago, a legacy was born… as Koichi Kawai labored diligently in his small workshop in Hamamatsu, Japan. The determined spirit of the master builder lives today in the Shigeru Kawai Research and Development Laboratory, where our renowned Master Piano Artisans patiently build one of the world’s finest instruments, the EX Concert Piano. Combining our time-tested methods of origin (the meticulous handwork techniques of the piano craft) with the most sophisticated piano-design tools of our day, each EX Concert Piano is conceived as a “next step” in the evolving art of the piano… each one striving to be better than the last. The scarcity of materials used and the painstaking attention devoted to each EX Concert Piano make these instruments rare indeed. Fewer than twenty are crafted each year for all the world.
"I was very pleased with the help offered by the staff. I was grateful, too, for all their patience with my indecision about where to have the piano delivered! I am very happy with my Steinway grand...and plan to keep it for the rest of my life."
