Bösendorfer Grand Piano 155

Mechanical Refinement at Limited Space

Our Grand Piano 155 has been designed to surprise at 5’1” by mechanical refinement in action, responsiveness of touch and repetition, with key characteristics of bigger Grands such as the 170. Designed in 2012, this Grand Piano soon found many followers who did not like to compromise artistic expression and freedom of articulation in an urban setting. The smallest of all Bösendorfer resonance cases already proves its ability to enchant the audience with an extraordinary spectrum of colours – keeping in mind the actual size of the instrument. Richness in colour, projection of enchanting nuances, repetition speed and responsiveness of touch are key qualities of a Bösendorfer Grand. This is why we have applied the same key characteristics we designed for the bigger Bösendorfer Grand 170.

Description

Bösendorfer ranks among the world’s oldest and most prestigious piano manufacturers. Rich in tradition and world-famous for their intricate hand-craftsmanship, high quality instruments and unmistakably inspiring sound, they have been refining the art of Viennese piano-making since 1828.

Thriving in the epicenter of European culture, Bösendorfer has uniquely been able to experience and absorb the influences of Viennese culture. Vienna has been the major center of the arts in Europe for over 500 years, making it a destination for great musicians and artists, and resulting in fantastic architecture throughout the city. More importantly, Vienna has been a destination, inspiration and home to many famous musicians and composers—including Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms, Bruckner, Mahler, Liszt, Strauss and Schönberg…to name a few. The influence of Viennese architecture, as well as these renowned artists and musicians is prevalent in the design and sound of Bösendorfer’s pianos.

Building a Bösendorfer is a labor of love. Dedicated craftsmen have passed their traditions and skills down from generation to generation, and as such have continued to perfect the beautiful design, sound and quality that make a Bösendorfer piano truly unique. Within every Bösendorfer piano lies not only more than a full year’s work, but also the knowledge that has been passed down and refined since the company’s founding. Every Bösendorfer piano is special, built with care, devotion and professionalism—”The Bösendorfer among the grands.”
