Fazioli pianos are considered to be the finest pianos available in the world today by a growing number of professional pianists. These amazing instruments were first developed a little over 30 years ago by Paolo Fazioli, a pianist and engineer driven to create a piano superior to any other piano in existence. Fazioli builds around 150 pianos a year, each piano taking approximately three years and 1000 hours of specialized hand-crafted work to complete. Fazioli pianos feature many innovations including many parts that are plated with 18K gold to prevent corrosion and a red spruce soundboard that comes from the same trees in northern Italy’s ‘Val di Fiemme’ forest where Antonio Stradivari carved wood for his famous violins. Jazz legend Herbie Hancock and Angela Hewitt, the world’s leading interpreter of Bach music are among the ever increasing number of renowned pianists who are choosing the Fazioli piano for concert halls, music conservatories and recording studios worldwide.
