Dear piano lovers, 

You're in for a real treat!

We have received GREAT new videos with breath-taking performances from incredible pianists, and I have added those to our long list of existing videos (all marked with NEW):

Check out a live performance of Stephen Limbaugh's performance of his Millenial Suite, on the Synchron Concert D-274 (scroll down)!

"I actually wrote that piece when I was 18 for a theory class project. The scale used is a whole tone scale starting on C with a raised 3rd. Back in 2014 I started working on an album and decided that it would go well as the finale movement in a piano suite called "Millenial Suite". I figured sind the overall theme was to capture cultural preferences of millenials that integrating some of my student works into it would be good". 

That album actually was the best-selling album of contemporary music in 2015 and charted on Billboard! Congrats, Stephen, and thanks for sharing!

6 new pieces by Philip Johnston, played on his Yamaha N3, triggering our Synchron Concert D-274 and the Synchron Yamaha CFX. A great match!

Philip Johnston is an Australian composer normally known as one of music education's best selling authors, but has also recorded for Warner Music as a pianist. In 2015 he sold two perfectly good acoustic grand pianos to create the setup you see in the videos...a 100% digital recording studio. Check out the results at his YouTube channel

And finally, Steinway artist Jean-Michel Bernard is providing you with a great new overview of the possibilities you get with ALL our Synchron Pianos, playing a mix of genres on different keyboards. 

Jean-Michel Bernard is a French pianist, composer, educator, orchestrator, and music producer. He is well known for regularly writing, performing, and scoring for films, such as The Science of Sleep, Hugo, Paris-Manhattan, Love Punch and Be Kind Rewind. He began playing the piano at the age of two and has collaborated with Ray Charles, Lalo Schifrin, Ennio Morricone, Michel Gondry and Martin Scorsese among others and he is a « Steinway Artist. » 
« I love him because he’s better than me ! This guy is a genius, in my mind. » (Ray Charles)
« I cannot find words to reflect my admiration for his genius. » (Lalo Schifrin)
