Grand Pianos in Lofoten
At the establishment of the Lofoten International Chamber Music Festival, there was not a single Steinway & Sons available in the area. Together with a strong local commitment, the festival has been a major driving force for what is referred to as “black magic”. Today there are 10 Steinway & Sons available for Lofoten the whole year. Two of these are owned by the festival itself. The development was also the starting point for the Lofoten Piano Festival in 2014.
Steinway Prize Winner Concerts
In 2016, the Lofoten Piano Festival entered into a collaboration with the Grieg Competition in Bergen. Here, the festival also received an offer to collaborate with Steinway & Son’s own concert series for young prize winners – Steinway Prize Winner Concerts. The concept was implemented for the first time in 2019 during the Lofoten International Chamber Music Festival.
Steinway & Sons
The grand pianos of Steinway & Sons do not only dominate during the festivals. Since its establishment in 1853, Steinway & Sons has gradually developed and is today the preferred instrument of most pianists in the world. Therefore, it is not uncommon to find the same instruments as in Lofoten on the big stages around the world.
