The salon grand model 214 is happiest demonstrating its concert capabilities at performances in medium-sized concert halls. This is where its strengths can come to the fore: optimal sound transparency, sheer delight in playing, precision of touch, unsurpassed fullness of sound, dynamic control and a sustained tonal character that will be warmly applauded. Salon grands rose in popularity at the start of the Biedermeier period (the style in painting, literature and furniture from around 1815 to 1848). During that era, an important role was played in Viennese musical life by elegantly furnished salons where the foremost composers of their day would present their works. During the 19th century, salons developed into exclusive gathering places for Austria’s aristocratic and bourgeois society. The Bosendorfer 214 model is, naturally, also eminently suitable for private spaces.

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.

“The piano is my second self” declared Frédéric Chopin. He certainly knew what he was talking about; almost his entire oeuvre was composed for the piano. To mark the 150th anniversary of Chopin’s death, we created an exclusive masterpiece using the superior technical workmanship for which Bösendorfer pianos are renowned. Many of the lovingly crafted carvings were inspired by pianos on which Chopin played during his tour of England and Scotland in 1848. These beautiful details reflect the care lavished by English piano builders on producing their works of art. The name board of this piano has a hand-engraved plaque in gold-plated solid silver, which features the composer’s signature. This model is available in a variety of sizes, veneers and finishes. The Chopin model is an investment with a truly unique character.
