New Shigeru Kawai SK-EXL 9’1″ Piano

Each Shigeru EXL Concert Piano is conceived as a next step in the evolving art of the piano. Fewer than twenty are crafted each year for all the world. With its magnificent tone and wonderfully responsive touch, the EX can best be described with one word—incomparable.

Time has little relevance in the creation of a Shigeru piano. There is no rush to completion. No pressure to perform, no demanding deadlines. Each artisan understands that the ultimate priority is perfection. This explains why every element of the crafting process is three to five times longer, and why the Shigeru workshop is a place of unruffled focus and serenity.

The ability to select the right wood, the kind that can speak fluently in every dialect of emotion from fiery fervor to gentle whispers of tone, is an art in itself. Whether it is select spruce for the soundboard, premium mahogany for the hammers, or choice maple for the bridge, the material chosen for every distinct part of a world-class piano must be perfect for the task. Shigeru craftsmen have spent decades refining this uncommon ability to discern between the satisfactory and the sublime. It is this venerable wisdom, this intuition, that one can hear and feel in every note of a Shigeru piano.

If there is an underlying secret behind the resonant song of the Shigeru grand piano, it is this tranquil place of origin where heart, mind and spirit are given the time to breathe and the freedom to soar.

The technology that supports the sounds produced by the Shigeru Kawai are created by the craftsman who have dedicated their lives to building the world’s finest pianos. Every single step, each intricately detailed design, is performed without urgency—as our craftsmen draw upon their years of experience to achieve their relentless pursuit of perfection. It’s this good, old-fashioned care and great individual pride that enables our pianos to attract the greatest musicians from around the world.
