More about Ivory 3 German D

At the heart of Ivory 3 German D is an all new recording of a Hamburg Steinway D Concert Grand Piano. An exceptional concert instrument, this majestic D-274 is characterized by its powerful, deep, resonant bass, and the round, singing tone of its treble.Meticulously cared for by master concert technician Michel Pedneau, the instrument is also distinguished by its unmistakable clarity and a highly refined balance of tone throughout all registers, a classic example of the beautiful and indelible Steinway® sound.

This extraordinary Hamburg D has known only one home, the magnificent, acoustically perfect, Le Domaine Forget de Charlevoix Concert Hall in St. Irenee, Quebec, where it was recorded for Ivory 3. Reunited for the recording sessions were technician Michel Pedneau, recording engineer Mark Donahue of Soundmirror, and performer/producer Joe Ierardi, the same team that produced the legendary Ivory II American Concert D. Together they poured their years of expertise and experience into capturing every detail of this brilliant concert grand in multiple microphone perspectives. The end result is a stunning example of this remarkable German Steinway D captured in its prime, and now brought to life here in the Ivory 3 engine.
