Steinway Piano Gallery


John Lennon would have celebrated his 70th birthday. In his honour, STEINWAY & SONS has developed a collection named the ‘The Imagine Series Limited Edition’ that pays tribute to the oeuvre of the ingenious musician and composer. The Imagine Series is modelled after the white STEINWAY grand piano that John Lennon presented to his wife, Yoko Ono, on her birthday in 1971.

The Imagine Series embodies the perfect harmony between music and creativity, akin to the songs written by this musician whose life was suddenly and prematurely taken from us in 1980. Each grand piano bears the opening notes of the song ‘Imagine’ on its cast iron plate along with a numbered plaque featuring an Asian-inspired signature by John Lennon and, on the soundboard, an illustration of John Lennon sitting on the globe.



The music desk of each piano incorporates one of seven unique John Lennon original drawings. "Come Together," the title of the opening track on the Beatles' historic Abbey Road album, reflects John Lennon's desire to bring people together. "Grand Piano" (no longer available) is a drawing that captures the songwriting process — as musician and piano become one. "Freda People" exemplifies John Lennon's passion for using music for the benefit of mankind. "Self Portrait" (no longer available) is perhaps John Lennon's most famous drawing — despite the simplicity, it's unmistakably John. "Borrowed Time" includes a sketch of an upright piano, such as the legendary STEINWAY on which Lennon composed "Imagine."  "Frog Pondering" perfectly demonstrates a blend of the creative and playful sides of Lennon. In "Power to the People," we see a combination of Lennon's love for freedom, as well as of New York, with his rendition of the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor. 

The soundboard of every Imagine piano is graced by a full color decal, also based on a drawing from John Lennon.

A portion of the proceeds from every Imagine piano sold by STEINWAY & SONS will be donated to The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus.
