This Bösendorfer Model 225 7'4'' semi-concert grand piano comes to us from a private owner who has lovingly cared for it, and it is ready for a new owner that will appreciate the unique musical experience it will afford.
Bösendorfer pianos are widely revered as some of the finest musical instruments ever created, and this Model 225 is a prime example of why that is the case.
The tone is elegant and refined, with remarkable clarity and richness. The action balances resistance and quickness wonderfully to produce a feeling of control that is very enjoyable.
Established in Vienna in 1828 by Ignaz Bösendorfer, Bösendorfer remains one of the world's oldest and most respected piano makers. Their Austrian facility continues to produce a very small number of exceptionally high-quality instruments each year.
Bösendorfer pioneered the extension of the typical 88-key keyboard, and their larger instruments now regularly feature 92- or 97- note keyboards. They usually contribute to the piano's sonic character not through being played directly but via sympathetic resonance, when other strings in the piano are struck, contributing additional body to the tone. Moreover, the bass notes of the Bösendorfer, including the extra bass keys, are very powerful, adding volume in demanding literature.
This piano is in original but very sound overall condition with a few incidental signs of cosmetic wear commensurate with age.
