2023 SPMF Piano Competition

About the Instrument

The piano that will be used for the festival is the Yamaha S6X 7’ grand. The SX Series was introduced in 2017 and use many features from Yamaha’s flagship CF concert grand pianos. SX pianos feature Yamaha’s patented Acoustic Resonance Enhancement (A.R.E) technology. This revolutionary wood-reforming technology has been applied to the rim and back posts of the SX series grands, offering a warm, deep sound that can be achieved with this natural wood aging technology. A.R.E. changes the molecular composition of the wood, allowing the vibrational sounds to pass smoothly from one point of the wood on the piano to the other, which creates an incredible sustain.
