Hand Made in Braunschweig, Germany
Clara Schumann lived in Frankfurt and visited the shop of our seller in Frankfurt one day. He asked her to sit at the newly arrived Grotrian grand piano. She rejected first with a comment that she played only Erard-grand-piano. The seller nodded politely, but dragged a piano stool towards her and quietly opened the cover. The pianist took a glove off and moved one hand laxly through the clavier. Then she sat down, took the other glove off and began to play passionately. Afterwards she stood up and declared shortly and briefly: “From now on I play only on Grotrian grand piano.”
The Concert Royal has all the richness and brilliance of a complete orchestra. It is rightly considered to be one of the best grand pianos in the world. Its tone, playing mechanism and construction meet the very highest standards in terms of quality, refinement and perfection.
The most delicate pianissimo and the most powerful fortissimo. Every facet of the dynamic spectrum can be perfectly expressed on the Concert. Its sound fills medium-sized halls and conservatories, opera houses and large salons. The Concert results from centuries of experience, intense research and close consultation with music teachers, pianists and acoustic experts.
Sound with such an impressive dynamic spectrum and such well-balanced transparency that it becomes a source of inspiration for the pianist. The quality of this grand piano is the result of the latest insights that have come to light at our manufacturing plant in Brunswick, based on more than 170 years of experience and craftsmanship in building pianos and grand pianos.
Sound with such an impressive dynamic spectrum and such well-balanced transparency that it becomes a source of inspiration for the pianist. We developed a scratch-proof and easy-care surface of lacquer for these models. The studio line is offered in sizes 192 and 208 cm
No expense was spared on the Cabinet. And you can tell – both in its appearance and its sound. Measuring 192 cm in length, the Cabinet is a genuine chamber concert instrument with finely nuanced tonal qualities. Perfect for teaching in the academy or the discerning musician at home.
Sit down at the Chambre and your living room is transformed into a concert hall from the very first note. The strings hold around 18 tons of tension. And thanks to the perfectly engineered mechanics, even the most delicate touch will articulate a clear tone with astonishing volume.
Pianos in music schools, conservatories, studios and on rehearsal stages are often subjected to excessively robust treatment. But nothing can upset the College. It was especially developed to cope with highly demanding environments. So despite heavy usage, its response speed is preserved and the outstanding tonal properties remain brilliant.
The use of modern technology makes it possible to build a piano which does have a very nice sound but still a reasonable price. The friedrich GROTRIAN is fitted with a rectangular back construction instead of the familiar star shaped design. This is possible thanks to an extremely solid cast iron plate.
