Steinway Piano has a secret that it does not want Chautauquans to keep to themselves.

At 4 p.m. today in Fletcher Music Hall, former Steinway manager Ray Rotuna will give a presentation on the “Secrets of Steinway.”

Audience members will have the opportunity to learn of the many models of pianos that the family-owned company has been crafting for over a century and half.

Finding the perfect piano for oneself is similar to buying a car. In this afternoon’s presentation, Rotuna will explain the “Four S’s of Piano Selection” — style, size, sound and sensation, and how important these factors are in selecting the just the right Steinway for an individual.

As the gift that keeps on giving, Rotuna said that a Steinway piano is one that will always appreciate over time.

Rotuna said that 95 percent of artists and people pick Steinway pianos for their lasting value.

“The Steinway piano is renowned for its superb craftsmanship and endurance, which provides increasing financial value over its lifetime,” Rotuna said. “It has a responsiveness of action and playability unmatched by any other piano, and is the overwhelming choice of the majority of performing artists, concert halls and music schools.”
