From Oscar Wilde, the master wordsmith, comes the witticism: “Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing.”
Bösendorfer customers are not among them.
Bösendorfer fortepiano from 1867, built to the design of Anton Grosser, with the famous gold-plated caryatides.
The Bösendorfer pianos have always been purchased for their special sound quality. Beauty, durability and stable value have distinguished our instruments from time immemorial.
The craftsmanship tradition illustrates the fundamental philosophy of the Bösendorfer piano company. 10,000 manufacturing steps are behind every instrument, carried out by the best-trained employees, all of whom are artists of their profession. Handcraft consistently demands extreme attention to detail, the most careful handling and the highest possible quality. Our instruments have a life span that guarantees joy of playing on one and the same piano for generations to come.
Sound Store of Value
Bösendorfer grands are a solid investment because they are highly sought-after, even second-hand. A Model 225 grand piano purchased in 1965, to name one example, has appreciated in value by 300 percent over 40 years (graphic).
Bösendorfer pianos are also a value in and of themselves in terms of their beauty. Satin black, polished to high gloss or veneered—Bösendorfer pianos are physically perfect.
Style and joie de vivre
Style and joie de vivre turn value of goods into good values. Forever valid. Forever loved. One more reason to decide in favor of Bösendorfer.
