CEO and Representative Director
Since our formation, Roland has continued to address the future of the piano. We have strong passions to deliver the best digital piano to the customer using our latest state-of-the-art technology. As a result of our long-term research and development, the quality and performance of our latest digital pianos have been drastically improved thanks to the evolution of the sound source, keyboard, and sound system. However, our journey to explore the outer limits of the piano has just started, and we understand that digital pianos still have so much possibility to expand. By launching the Roland Digital Piano Design Awards, we hoped to work with young and talented designers across the planet without the limitation of conventional thinking and approach. Entrants were asked to design their ultimate piano under our guiding theme of “Concert Grand Piano.” We received many superb works and new concepts from all over the world, and we are extremely impressed with the results. The response to these awards has made us recognize once again just how much interest and passion there is for the piano in 2016. From here, we will keep pushing to develop the ultimate concert grand piano, an instrument that offers appearance and expression in perfect harmony.
