Christian Wissmuller • Trade Regrets • November 4, 2019

On Monday, November 4 we received the following from NAMM’s Dan Del Fiorentino:

Sadly, Bob Birmingham passed away unexpectedly yesterday. He was 74 years old.

Bob teamed with his brother to purchase Steinway & Sons from CBS Musical Instruments in the early 1980s. The Birmingham brothers were committed to restoring the high quality the piano maker had earned its reputation on, while focusing on serving its dealer base around the world.  During the time he owned the company, Steinway introduced their Boston Piano series, which was created to assist the dealer by offering Steinway quality products for first time piano owners.  In reflecting back on his years in the music industry, Robert pointed to the fact that he felt lucky to work with the people of the Steinway company and the many friends he made over the years.
