About This Piano

The origin of the Model B dates to 1871 with the development of the Steinway 85-note Style 1 grand piano. Modified and renamed the Model B in 1878, it has enjoyed unrivaled renown as a performance instrument in countless venues from the teaching studio to the recording studio, and the concert hall to the home. Today the Model B represents the second largest concert grand piano handcrafted at the Steinway factory in New York City.

This limited edition Steinway & Sons grand piano was built to commemorate the 100th anniversary of famed American pianist and composer, George Gershwin (1898 – 1937). In 1924, Gershwin wrote and performed his most famous concert work, “Rhapsody in Blue”. Labeled as modern music, the piece’s rhythmic invention and melodic inspiration were often interpreted as a musical portrait of New York City. This blue, art deco piano features Gershwin-inspired elements such as a music desk with a carved silhouette of the New York City skyline, and a piano plate hand-painted with the first 24 notes of “Rhapsody in Blue.”
