When Shigeru Kawai succeeded the founder of the company, Koichi Kawai, he had a dream to build Japan’s finest grand pianos. The dream represented not just his origins, but his destiny – an unrelenting force that would launch a lifetime of devotion in the pursuit of perfection. In the Shigeru Kawai piano, you will see not just his labour and his love – but his life.
From initial design, to the selection of the finest materials, to the handcrafted assembly by Master Piano Artisans, each Shigeru piano is a work of uncompromising craftsmanship, a symbol of unending devotion – a profound expression of pride and honour. For Shigeru Kawai, there could be no other way.
Like members of a great orchestra, each craftsman brings forth a seasoned wealth of skill and artistry that compels the whole to surpass the sum of its parts. Day by day, the craftsman strives to leave an indelible mark upon each creation – an inexpressible emblem of intense desire and duty. It is this symphony of passionate energies that has elevated the Shigeru piano to the lofty strata shared by few and respected by all.
