Impressive sound, imposing appearance
Italian composer, conductor and pianist Ferruccio Busoni meticulously transcribed the famous organ works of J.S. Bach. He soon realized that extra bass notes were necessary to imitate the compelling sound of the 16 to 32 foot organ pipes in his transcriptions. Ludwig Bösendorfer accepted the challenge, and in 1909 he built the first prototype with eight full octaves of tonal range. Not only did Busoni appreciate the exceptional qualities of the - later created - Imperial concert grand piano, but also the great composers Bartók, Debussy and Ravel composed special works, which make use of the enormous resonance of this instrument. These works can therefore only be played and interpreted correctly when performed on an Imperial concert grand piano. With its extraordinarily expressive, lilting and richly resonant sound, the Imperial grand piano offers an orchestral timbre. Additional bass notes resonate with each keystroke, and the massive soundboard supports the reproduction of every frequency. To this day, the Imperial by Ludwig Bösendorfer represents the precious heritage of the Bösendorfer factory.
Impressive in sound, imposing in appearance.
