Bosendorfer Standard Models

Despite the success of mass-production, Bosendorfer remains uniquely focused on the beauty and virtuosity of a hand-built piano. The legendary pure and inspiring sound emanates from a body constructed much as a violin in theory and every Bosendorfer grand and upright piano reflects these exacting standards. When a note is played, the integrated spruce components become acoustically active, giving the whole instrument a rich and robust resonance.

The fundamental differences between Bosendorfer and other piano brands include: the use of air-dried Austrian spruce, hand-made craftsmanship, unrelenting durability, independent Capo d’astro, single stringing, open pinblock, hand-spun bass strings, Austrian sand cast frames, the unique and celebrated Bosendorfer action and above all, the Bosendorfer dedication to making the world’s finest pianos.

In the score, Liszt writes the downward octave martellato passage in octaves in both hands – but then drops left hand to a single. Bosy Imperial 290 was not yet created back then…”
