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

My wife, Buffy and I, purchased a piano from Ruggero Piano recently for our son who has been playing for the past 2 years. We are thrilled with our choice of piano. I personally was thrilled with the wonderful customer service. I could not have asked for better and more comfortable service. From the moment I entered the store, I was warmly and professionally greeted. I was shown several models which may fit our needs. The price was very good, and the quality of piano we chose is fabulous. Even the delivery was done professionally. Ruggero Piano has far exceeded our expectations, and we are so glad that we were referred to your store from other friends of ours who have done business with your store in the past. Thank you for everything!!! - Ernie Goodban
