About: Ludwig Bösendorfer draws the first sketches of the Grand Piano 170 for the highly cultured salon society of Imperial Vienna. The result is an enchanting instrument for the private cheerful gatherings of the bourgeois, and nobility. More than a century later, we carry on Ludwig Bösendorfer's vision and grand heritage by integrating the VC technology. A true Bösendorfer Sound experience even after more than a century of music’s history.
Very similar in principle to a violin the whole body – not exclusively the soundboard – supports sound formation. The actual core of the piano rim consists of a 10 mm quarter-sawn piece that is specially grooved by our craftsmen to allow it to be bent to the silhouette around the inner rim. This is unique to Bösendorfer. When a note is played, the integrated spruce components become acoustically active, forming a complete resonating body that allows the whole instrument to project your play. An outstanding richness of tone colour and our legendary pure and brilliant sound is crafted this way. This complex construction is part of the Viennese tradition of piano making.
