A fantastic opportunity.

This August Förster Model 275 9' concert grand piano has been treasured by a single family throughout its lifetime, and it is ready for an owner that will appreciate the unique musical experience it will afford.

Originally hand-crafted in Germany in 1975, this instrument was purchased new by the father of the current owner.

A premier quality instrument throughout.

August Förster pianos are widely revered among piano enthusiasts among the finest European pianos made, and this Model 275 will be an excellent choice for a buyer looking for a top-quality German instrument at an exceptionally affordable price.

Despite being all-original from the 1970s, the instrument has obviously been diligently cared for throughout its life.  Additionally, our technicians have just fully serviced the piano to ensure a lovely playing experience for its next owner.

The tone of this instrument is noticeably bolder and livelier than that of a Steinway D, while still retaining a lovely sense of depth and nuance as one would expect of a European concert grand.  Clarity is a hallmark of the August Förster tone, and this instrument exhibits that quality to a high degree.

About the brand

Friedrich August Förster opened his piano factory in 1859 in Löbau, Germany, after studying the art of piano making for many years.  His factory is still in existence today under the supervision of Annekatrin Förster (the fifth generation of the family in the business), employing a staff of 40 highly skilled crasftmen who build a small number of very high quality instruments each year.

Condition notes

This piano is in original but very sound overall condition with a few minor and incidental signs of cosmetic wear commensurate with age.
