Bösendorfer Model 290 Imperial

Bösendorfer Model 290 Imperial

Carrier of our great heritage

With its dramatic presence, unsurpassed power and emotional sonority this instrument is the ultimate representative of ourskills. Ludwig Bösendorfer’s invention continues to inspire generations of classical, jazz andnew music performers. Its massive soundboard, the largest of all concert grands,  makes its sound an almost orchestralexperience. The extra bass strings of the subcontra octave  extend the tonal range and create additional harmonic resonance throughout the whole instrument.

The first prototype was built in 1909 following a request from Ferruccio Busoni. He was working on a transcription of Bach’s organ music and needed a piano with deeper bassnotes. As a result  the Imperial was created with 97 keys- eight full octaves. Its extraordinary sound inspired major composers, including Bartók, Debussy and Ravel. Several music pieces composed require an Imperial to ensure that they are played true to the original.
