Heinrich Engelhard Steinweg’s 150th Death Anniversary († February 02, 1871)

It’s part of the inventory of nearly every concert hall in the world: a Steinway & Sons grand piano. The legendary instrument traces back to the German piano maker Heinrich Engelhard Steinweg.

Steinweg was born in the Harz region on February 15, 1797, his father was a charcoal producer. When he is orphaned at the age of 17 he joins the military, where he creates his first string instruments. He returns to his hometown in 1822 and begins to train with a carpenter and an organ builder. As legend has it, he builds his first square piano—a wedding present to his bride Juliane. Soon they expect the first of their 10 children.

Full of devotion and talent Steinweg gives his everything to his own piano building workshop. He completes his first concert grand piano in 1836 and receives more and more recognition for his work. And yet he decides to emigrate to the USA at the age of 53. Upon his arrival in New York he changes his name to Henry E. Steinway. He and his sons begin to work for other piano companies before founding their own company with the name „Steinway & Sons“. Over the years it would grow into one of the most renowned and successful piano makers in the world. The patriarch dies a wealthy and respected man on February 7, 1871. His sons continue the business. To satisfy the demand on the European market they establish a branch in Hamburg in 1880. Almost a century later the last Steinway descendants sell the company. It changes owners several more times before billionaire hedge fund manager Jon Paulson purchases it for half a billion USD in 2013.
