Since Carl Bechstein founded in 1853 his pianoforte production facility in Berlin, the name Bechstein stands for the highest class of upright and grand pianos; and not without justification. Claude Debussy stated: “One should only write piano music for Bechstein”, only for Hans von Bülow to add: “Bechstein is for pianists what Stradivarius is for violinists”! Fabulous masterpieces for the highest demands, the sound-ideal for many pianists worldwide! The perfect action, responds to every nuance. The C.Bechstein piano is the superlative in piano manufacturing. There is nothing better, nothing comparable. They are individual, masterfully shaped gems. Luxury in every detail. The more complex the detail work, the more valuable the instrument. The quality, the fine work, the expense and complexity in materials and workmanship are second to none. In the last decades, C.Bechstein has – once again – upgraded its manufacturing site to a true forge for masterpieces produced with modern knowledge while safeguarding precious tradition. The instruments enjoy worldwide admiration by demanding musicians and C.Bechsteins are to be found on concert stages, in academies and in private homes; simply wherever good music is made!
