The Stradivarius of Pianos

Vienna has a cultural and musical history unmatched by any other city in the world. During the 19th century, many of the world’s most respected musicians lived and worked there. Mozart, Beethoven, Clementi, Haydn, Schubert, and many others called Vienna home during their careers. Ignaz Bösendorfer was born into this rich culture and built his first instrument there in 1828.

Franz Liszt quickly discovered the Bösendorfer.  Liszt’s praise and use of this instrument brought Bösendorfer fame almost overnight. The Austrian Emperor conferred the title of “Imperial Royal Court and Chamber Piano Manufacturer” on Bösendorfer and quickly this piano became the choice of royal courts and musicians throughout Europe.

Today the Bösendorfer piano is synonymous with excellence and culture in Austria. It is a source of tremendous pride and is considered a national treasure. In fact, for almost a century, Vienna’s Musikverein building, one of the most elegant and renowned centers of classical music worldwide, also houses the Bösendorfer salon, which is a paradise for anyone who loves pianos.
