Description
The first book based on the rich archive of Steinway business and family papers at LaGuardia Community College in New York, as well as on interviews with family members and company employees in the United States, Germany, and England, this authoritative and entertaining book tells the story of the most famous piano company in the world and of the family behind it.

"There is something here for everybody -- the music lover, the history buff, the economist, the sociologist -- Lieberman has brought together the many aspects of human development that lie behind the exquisite machine that is the Steinway piano.... A dazzlingly complex tale, masterfully told". -- Richard Bucci, Newsday

"An often fascinating overview of a musical epoch that may, regrettably, be coming to an end". -- Eva Hoffman, New York Times Book Review

"Lieberman's clearly written, often witty history of Steinway and Sons is not only the very model of what a business history should be, covering every inch of that turf from finance to distribution, but is also an extraordinary tale of a family.... Absolutely first-rate history". -- Katherine A. Powers, Boston Globe

"Structurally perfect, with just the right balance between company anecdotes and the broader context in which Steinway operated, the book is much more than a business history.... It reads like a kind of business Les Miserables, spanning one and a half centuries, two world wars and a host of personal and corporate dramas.... An informative and rich narrative". -- Peter Marsh, Financial Times

"A fascinating saga of American manufacturing capitalism at its most dynamic, entrepreneurial and hard-nosed". -- Malcolm Hayes, Sunday Telegraph
