Bösendorfer ranks among the world’s oldest piano manufacturers, rich in tradition and world-famous for our unmistakably inspiring sound as well as the outstanding quality of our instruments.
Bösendorfer is in a unique position among all of the piano manufacturers in the world. No one else can claim Bösendorfer’s central position in European culture, as Vienna was the major center of Europe for more than 500 years. This has resulted in fantastic architecture built throughout the city, representing the Gothic style, the Romantic style, the Baroque and Rococo style. Additionally, and most importantly, many famous musicians and composers – such Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms, Bruckner, Mahler, Liszt, Strauss and Schönberg, to name just a few of them – have lived and worked in Vienna.
Even so, it is not magic that makes a Bösendorfer so special. Within every Bösendorfer piano lies not only a full year’s work, but also the knowledge that has been passed down from one generation to the next since the company’s founding in 1828. Acquiring a Bösendorfer is a lifetime dream for many people. For them, we build something very special, with devotion and professionalism: the "Bösendorfer among the grands".
