Meet Stephan Mohler, Kayserburgs’s Quality Control Director.

But what he means to Kayserburg are the words visionary and inspiring. Over the last decade, Stephan has played a critical role in helping make Pearl River the World’s Best Selling Piano.

China’s Piano Man at the Keyboard of a Kayserburg.
Liu Huan, one of China’s leading pop singers, rocked the room during Zhejiang TV’s 2014/2015 New Year’s Concert. Famous not only for his repertoire of pop hits, but also for his work as a lyricist and composer, Liu Huan performed with Sarah Brightman during the opening ceremony of the 2008 Olympics. The video captures the excitement as Liu Huan performs at the keyboard of a Kayserburg grand piano at the new year’s concert held in Guangzhou, home of the Pearl River Piano Group. His singing blended beautifully with the rich, warm tones of the Kayserburg making it a memorable evening for all.
