Sound of Harmony

Sound of Harmony is one of the most prized grand pianos ever made in the long and storied history of Steinway & Sons. It was conceived and commissioned by Chinese art collector and music lover, Guo Qingxiang. Sound of Harmony features the inlaid image of Peacock, a traditional ink-wash painting by renowned Chinese artist Shi Qi.

Nearly 40 different veneer woods from around the world were used to recreate this masterpiece painting, including Tamo Ash, Tulip Wood, Amboyna Burl, Olive Ash, Rosewood, Macassar Ebony, Birdseye Maple and Brazilian Rosewood.
