Pianoteq Model B Grand Piano
Modartt releases Model B Grand Piano for Pianoteq. This instrument is modelled after a Steinway B Grand Piano from Hamburg, known for its splendid and versatile character. Subtle refinements of the physical model contribute to a faithful rendering of the original instrument.
The piano that is modelled belongs to the Martha Argerich edition, a set of twenty-five Steinway & Sons Model B-211 pianos that the prestigious pianist carefully selected in 2014 for their musicality. She signed each.
The first Steinway B grand pianos were manufactured in 1878. The Steinway B is now the best selling Steinway grand piano. It is generally known as "The Perfect Piano". It has much of the concert grand piano sound of a Steinway D, although it is smaller, and thus better suited for recording studios and mid-sized recital venues. Very easy to play, it is perfect for achieving a wide range of timbres, from a nuanced, delicate pianissimo to the thunder of a crescendo.
The virtual grand piano Model B for Pianoteq was carefully designed to reproduce the finest sound characteristics of the Steinway B instrument that was selected by Modartt for this project. Subtle refinements of the physical modelling were made, resulting in a noticeably clear tone and astounding dynamics.
