The Italian composer, conductor and pianist Ferruccio Busoni meticulously transcribes the famous organ works of J.S. Bach. He soon realises that he requires additional bass notes in order to do Bach’s masterpieces and the immersive sound of 16 to 32 feet bass pipes found in an organ justice. Ludwig Bösendorfer is ready to take on the challenge and builds the first prototype having full 8 octaves in tonal range.

Not only Busoni starts to appreciate the exceptional qualities of the – later coined – Imperial Concert Grand: Bartók, Debussy and Ravel compose further works to exploit the tremendous resonance of this very instrument. These oeuvres can only played and interpreted as they were meant to on this Concert Grand. Evoking an extraordinary sound – sonorous and rich in expression and resonance – the timbre of the Imperial Grand seems to be orchestral. The additional deeper bass notes resonate with every key you strike and the massive soundboard supports the projection of any frequency. Ludwig Bösendorfer’s Imperial still to this day represents the precious heritage of the Bösendorfer piano manufactory. Impressive in sound, imposing in appearance.

The Bösendorfer Grand Artisan is a stunning piece of art even before one single tone is played. As long as the second millennium BC in the Orient, marquetry depicting delicately slender designs has been used to decorate special objects dear to the spectator and the artist. Fine lines of playful floral figures, precious veneers and dreamy shades of walnut, maple, pear, cherry, mahogany, and burr amboyna complement the elegant silhouette of this grand piano. A masterpiece of our artisans dedicated to the refined art of marquetry. A masterpiece of sound and craftsmanship.
