Description

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.

Customer Reviews

Ruggero Piano took AMAZING care of us during our research and purchase of a Yamaha upright piano. We really appreciated Bill's approach - he asked us a number of questions about what we were looking for and took us on a tour of almost every piano in Ruggero's showroom. We never felt any pressure whatsoever. We were able to play whichever piano we wanted to play in order to help us make our decision. The delivery of the piano went off without a hitch and it sounds terrific. We would recommend buying a piano from Ruggero's without hesitation or reservation!!! - Andy Greene
