It began as a challenge! Could a new kind of piano design eliminate the compromises in performance found in all medium priced pianos? The Boston pianos “designed by Steinway & Sons” were introduced in 1992 and marked a new era in the history of the company: for the first time pianos “designed by Steinway & Sons” were available in the medium price segment, yet with a number of patents and designs of Steinway & Sons being incorporated in the construction.
Drawing on the incomparable experience of Steinway and with the heritage of Steinway & Sons unmistakably present, the Boston piano is an entirely new sensation: A piano you can recognize with your eyes closed and keys that seem to anticipate your touch! Long unrivaled in its class and unmatched in value, the Boston has been significantly enhanced with the introduction of the new Performance Edition instruments; featuring improvements in materials, specifications, and performance offering an even greater playing and listening experience.
