The Bösendorfer Concert Grand 290 Imperial represents the apex of the famed Austrian piano manufacturer’s precious heritage. Its extraordinary, orchestral sound is rich in expression and resonance with a warm tone, thanks to the enormous resonance board and the nine additional sub-bass notes. The instrument’s key range is extended downward to the low C – for a total range of eight octaves.
Synchron Concert D-274 features a Steinway & Sons D-274, Hamburg Model that was recorded at the main hall (Stage A) of Synchron Stage Vienna. With a length of 274 cm (almost 9 ft.) and a weight of almost 500 kg (1,100 lb.), it is the flagship model of the world-renowned piano manufacturer.
Especially when competing with orchestras, the D-274 impresses with its tremendous assertive sonic volume and power – which is not surprising considering its soundboard of almost two square meters (21.5 sq.ft.). Over 4,000 samples per key and almost 20,000 samples per microphone position provide an unprecedented level of authenticity, liveliness, and feel!
The Yamaha CFX features a hand-crafted, full size concert grand that represents the pinnacle of the manufacturer's tradition of piano crafting. It was captured at Stage A of Synchron Stage Vienna with up to 4,200 samples per key. The instrument’s distinctive sound can be characterized as precise, bright, clear, powerful and assertive, lending itself to any genre of classical, romantic or contemporary piano music and from solo pieces to chamber and concert works. Yamaha’s award-winning performance reproducing system “Disklavier ENSPIRE PRO“ guaranteed utmost precision, resolution and consistency during the entire recording process. You may select from six different presets ("Concert", "Intimate", "Player", "Pop", "Ambience", "Mighty") and edit them to your liking with the musician-friendly user interface of our proprietary software player.
The Blüthner 1895 is a particularly glorious example of the legendary German piano manufacturer’s “golden tone”. The beautifully refurbished instrument is equipped with Blüthner’s patented Aliquot system that uses additional resonating strings in the treble register, resulting in a lyrical, warm and rich sound with lots of overtones. The instrument, recorded at Stage B of Synchron Stage Vienna, is extremely versatile and well suited for soloists looking for a slightly different, personal piano sound. The Blüthner lends itself extremely well to song accompaniments and chamber music settings, as well as to pop songs and ballads where other concert grands sound too large and obtrusive. Presets like “Intimate” or “Vintage” bring out this special quality even more.
Bösendorfer’s new and acclaimed “Vienna Concert” grand piano merges the company’s venerated traditional approach to piano manufacturing with the most recent, sophisticated engineering. The Bösendorfer 280VC is completely modern, reimagined from scratch, while remaining true to Bösendorfer’s legendary foundations.
The Bösendorfer Upright incorporates the experience of almost two centuries of grand piano making. Although physically an upright piano, the instrument surprises with subtle nuances and a powerful bass, and yet with a pure and pristine piano sound, without further tonal colors that are usually added by the large body of a concert grand.
