The world’s most iconic piano brand was founded 1853 in Manhattan, New York by German immigrant Henry Steinway. The firm grew to become the benchmark acoustic piano producer, serving professional musicians and orchestras in particular. Over its life Steinway has been owned by several different enterprises, including the USA music giant CBS. All of its owners have contributed in some way to the development of the Steinway business. Steinway was purchased by USA hedge fund financier John Paulson for $512 million in 2013. It was always suspected that Steinway was a tangential business interest for John Paulson and now the rumours are starting to suggest that Steinway will be offered for sale once more.
