Excerpt

About one hundred years ago the Steinway family emigrated from their native land to the New World, seeking a haven, opportunity, and the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

On June 29, 1850, they arrived in New York City with eager heart and hopeful vision.

The City of New York held out its arms in welcome, gave them a new home, fresh hope, and the blessed privilege of doing their work, thinking their thoughts, and living their lives in peace, security, and service to music.

This book briefly tells the story of the Steinways' first hundred years--one small grain among the endless sands of time; but still their own.

In 1853 the House of Steinway was founded in New York City. In this year 1953, as a small token of an infinitely great debt, they humbly dedicate this book to the City of New York and its people.

Steinway Hall, New York, 1953
