The Yamaha S7X premium piano recently made its public debut at the Bravo! Vail Music Festival in Vail, Colorado.

The piano was being used at the Vail Interfaith Chapel for the festival.

Yamaha also provided a CFX concert grand piano and a CFIIIS concert grand piano, as well as a GC1TA and AvantGrand N1 and N2 pianos for artist practice and rehearsal for the festival.

“What I love so much about the SX series pianos, is that it has such a clear sound, so playing Bach on this instrument is a joy. You practically don’t have to play it, it almost plays it for you,” said Anne-Marie McDermott, artistic director of the festival and Yamaha artist. “It also has this silky pearly sound, so when I play a Brahms intermezzo, or Chopin, you just feel like you can caress the sound out of the instrument and it responds to this huge palette of colors.”

 “I recently had the opportunity to try the new Yamaha S7X in Vail and I was thoroughly delighted by the sound and response of the piano,” said Steven Harlos, chair of the division of Keyboard Studies at the University of North Texas. “It is a remarkable achievement. I look forward to spending much more time with this model. I barely scratched the surface of its capabilities.”
