New York Times music critic Edward Rothstein publishes an article titled “Made in U.S.A., Once Gloriously, Now Precariously”, once again expressing concern of the quality of modern Steinway & Sons pianos. The article, however, expresses more optimism: “struck by the serious effort to improve the instrument. […] ┬áthe final stages of manufacturing received more attention than they did a few years ago. […] outside technicians have also reported improvements in Steinways, a heartening sign.”
