American Concert D Banner

The latest in a series of critically acclaimed virtual pianos from Synthogy.
Played and recorded by many of the world’s great artists, this 1951 “New York” Steinway Model D was hand-picked by Steinway & Sons for concert promotion, and has been lovingly and consistently maintained by artisan technicians.
It combines mature overtones with a youthful clarity that can only be achieved with an instrument of this class.

Synthogy has captured every nuance of this very special instrument and meticulously brought it to life with unparalleled realism!
This particular New York Steinway D has the designation "CD 121" signifying that it was selected by Steinway & Sons for artist promotion and concert hall specification. The instrument has an exceptionally pure and clear tone, a remarkably expressive dynamic range and has been described by many artists as among the finest they’ve ever played. In fact, the plate of this particular piano is signed by pianists Glenn Gould and Rudolf Serkin, a testament of high praise for the instrument by two of the world’s great masters.

The piano was recorded in the Françoys-Bernier Concert Hall at Le Domaine Forget in the Charlevoix region of Quebec. This is the same hall where Ivory´s acclaimed German Steinway was recorded, and also by the same recording and technical team.

Conclusion (excerpt):

The great thing about American Concert D is that you can use it for virtually any style of music; its classic, expensive-sounding timbre is almost universally adaptable, and will add production value to arangements with very little user effort. Basically, you just load it (which takes about 10 seconds) and play!
