Theme & Variations is the exclusive dealer of the complete range of Steinway-designed pianos in New South Wales and Queensland. In the tradition of Steinway, Theme & Variations has been providing pianos to prominent concert and education venues for many years including the Sydney Opera House, the City Recital Hall and the Queensland Performing Arts Centre.
The company's managing director Ara Vartoukian has been tuning pianos for the last three decades, wanted to display the internal mechanism of the Steinway piano at the recent Sydney International Piano Competition.
