Kawai celebrates 90th Anniversary with the new NOVUS NV10 Hybrid Piano

NOVUS combines Kawai’s most advanced digital piano technology yet, with a hybrid version of its acclaimed Millennium III ABS Carbon grand piano action.

2017 marks the 90th Anniversary of Koichi Kawai establishing his piano making business in Hamamatsu, Japan, and the company is celebrating this feat in style with a new piano competition and the introduction of a brand new Hybrid instrument.

Now in the hands of Koichi’s grandson, Hirotaka Kawai, the company balances time-honoured craftsmanship with innovation to produce Kawai acoustic and digital pianos.

Earlier in the year, the anniversary was celebrated in Japan with dealers and Kawai staff gathered from all over the world. And the first ever Shigeru Kawai International Piano Competition reached its final stage in August.  

The premium Shigeru Kawai Concert Series of grand pianos, named after the second president of Kawai, is crafted to the highest levels of craftsmanship by master piano artisans at the environmentally friendly Ryuyo facility, and embodies the ideals on which Kochi Kawai built the company.

In the months to come, highlights of this special year will include the launch of the new NOVUS NV10 Hybrid Piano, previewed at Frankfurt Musikmesse in April.  

NOVUS combines Kawai’s most advanced digital piano technology yet, with a hybrid version of its acclaimed Millennium III ABS Carbon grand piano action, and audio technology from fellow Japanese company Onkyo.  

“Bringing these things together with the newly modelled sound of the Shigeru Kawai SK-EX is a perfect celebration of Kawai’s philosophy,” said the company.  

Marking another exciting step in the company’s long timeline, NOVUS is expected to be available in October, with final prices yet to be announced.
