Of all grand pianos, the Imperial model 290, carries the Bosendorfer DNA, Bosendorfer heritage in its most pronounced form. Historically, this grand piano epitomizes the Bosendorfer grand piano of the 19th century. Originally built following a suggestion by composer Ferruccio Busoni, the Imperial has 97 keys, i.e. eight full octaves. This expanded range allows faithful performances of a number of compositions by Bartók, Debussy, Ravel and, not least, Busoni. Combining a very powerful sound-board and a high proportion of sound-spruce from the Fiemme Valley in the South Tyrol, this piano’s sound is almost orchestral.  The Bosendorfer “resonating box principle” which views the entire instrument as a cohesive whole, generates unsurpassed power and a poignantly full tone. Model 290 is our only standard grand piano model to have acquired an epithet when it was first built in around 1900: Imperial (lat. imperare, to order, command).  Its commanding presence in some of the world’s great concert halls sets the standard by which other grand pianos are judged. 4.048467

Viennese musical history and the Bosendorfer piano factory are inextricably linked. Instruments made by Bosendorfer, the imperial and royal supplier of pianos, were owned not only by royalty and the nobility, but also by the great musicians of their day, including Johann Strauss II.  Johann Strauss’s formal title was “court ball director”, but he was more popularly known as the “waltz king”.  With Strauss’s music, the popularity of the Viennese waltz spread rapidly. Austria came to be identified with this music – and still is today. The “Blue Danube”, for instance, composed by Strauss in 1867, is Austria’s unofficial national anthem.  The Johann Strauss model produced by Bösendorfer today is inspired by the instrument on which the great master wrote his compositions, which is still in the Strauss memorial rooms in Vienna.  With this instrument you are acquiring a piece of Viennese musical history. 0.04635571
