Bösendorfer 9’6″ Model 290 Imperial

Of all our grand pianos, model 290, the Imperial, carries the Bösendorfer DNA, our heritage in its most pronounced form. Historically, this grand piano epitomizes the Bösendorfer 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.


Brand: Bösendorfer


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 Bösendorfer “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.
