New Steinway Self-playing Piano "Spiro"
By Matthew Caulfield

The Rochester, New York, Democrat & Chronicle newspaper for March 28,
2018, carried an article, "Steinway's Grand High-tech Leap: how a
$133,000 self-playing piano engineered a symphonic turnaround."

The article stated that the new grand piano, developed in concert with
piano engineer Wayne Stahnke and called the Spiro, uses a mobile app
and an iPad "to activate the performances of masterful artists such as
David Benoit and Bill Charlap."

Has any other MMD'er heard or read about this new Steinway creation?
