The Move of a 9'1" Shigeru Grand Piano for Recordings by Renowned Pianist Alexander Kobrin

We recently facilitated the move of a beautiful SK-EX Shigeru Concert Grand Piano 9’1” for recordings by renowned Russian performer Alexander Kobrin. He recorded all of Beethoven’s sonatas, starting with the first eight.

Among the top pianos in the world, fewer than 20 Shigeru Concert Grand Pianos are built annually.

"Over one hundred years ago, in a humble workshop in Japan, Koichi Kawai embarked upon a journey—a spiritual quest to design and build a piano that would one day be called "the finest." A generation later, this dream burned intensely in the heart of Shigeru Kawai. To Shigeru, the dream represented not just his origins, but his destiny—an unrelenting force that would launch a lifetime of devotion in the pursuit of perfection. In the Shigeru Kawai piano, you will see not just his labor and his love... but his life." -

One fourth generation company to another, this was an inspiring project for us.

Over the past 120 years, music and the facilitation of creativity has always felt like an escape, a way to move through tough moments and fully celebrate good times. We think about all of the world events that have happened since 1901 - pandemics, wars, civic movements, technological advancements, and so much more - and we feel grateful to remain a resource for musicians and creators in the Washington, D.C. area. In recent years, we have cherished our relationship with Kawai as authorized dealer for our region. Learn more about Kawai pianos.
