When was the last time you were invited to drive a $200,000 luxury car? How long has it been since you last wore a $300,000 timepiece? Can you remember the last time you spent $500,000 traveling Europe? Let’s face it. Very few of us have the opportunity to experience luxury like that in our everyday lives. …but when we do, it’s an experience we carry with us forever. Now – for a few short weeks in March – we are inviting you to experience a collection of pianos worth over one million dollars as they pass through the Phoenix area. Included in this exclusive group of designer instruments are six very unique, Bosendorfer artisan grand pianos. These one-of-a-kind instruments are lovingly handcrafted by master Viennese craftsmen – a process that takes six years per piano. Each one is special. Now – for a very limited time – you’re invited to step behind the velvet rope to view and play one of these iconic masterpieces yourself… and better yet? It won’t cost you a dime.
Most people will never see a Bosendorfer piano up close – let alone be invited to touch one. Don’t miss this exceptional opportunity to encounter some of the finest pianos ever made. Bring your camera! Our staff will happily take a commemorative photo of you with these rare and breathtaking works of art.
We look forward to sharing this once-in-a-lifetime memory with you. Simply contact us to schedule your FREE private Bosendorfer playing experience – or call us at (480) 368-8888 and we’ll setup a time for you to play the pianos and get your commemorative photo taken.
Here are just a few of the pianos you’ll see:
Built to rival the opulence of Versailles, Vienna’s Schönbrunn Palace is one of the most important architectural, cultural, and historic monuments in Austria. Chosen by Empress Maria Theresa and her husband Francis I, the Holy Roman Emperor, Schönbrunn Palace was not only famous as the Imperial Summer Residence, it was also celebrated for its magnificent gardens and greenhouses.
The Limited Edition “Dragonfly” Bosendorfer piano is artfully ornamented with wonderful inlay marquetry – capturing the beauty of the Schönbrunn Palace and its many gardens.
One of the most venerable names in automobile history, Porsche still captures the imagination of luxury car enthusiasts around the world. This piano – designed in partnership with Ferdinand Alexander Porsche’s studio – has been created to honor the man who designed and built the very first Porsche 911. Staying true to form, the Porsche piano has a unique diamond black finish, aluminum legs, and a lightweight, honeycomb lid that can be opened with ease thanks to a gas-pressured spring. Everything about this piano – including its hydraulic bench – challenges traditional piano designs without compromising the iconic performance of the Bosendorfer artisan piano at its core.
A contemporary (and close friend) of Pablo Picasso whose influence in the European Art Community led him to associate with such icons as Igor Stravinsky and Erik Satie, Jean Cocteau was a French poet, writer, designer, playwright, artist and filmmaker.
Adorned with his signature and examples of his work, including a portrait of Orpheus on the underside of the lid, the Limited Edition Cocteau Bosendorfer piano was created in partnership with the Menton Music Festival. According to myth, Apollo taught Orpheus how to play the lyre – giving Orpheus the ability to charm animals and even make the trees dance. Certainly, the trees used to make this stunning piano will make your heart skip a beat.
Founded in 1828 in Vienna, Austria (where Bosendorfer pianos are still made today), Bosendorfer is the oldest continuously-operating piano builder in the World. The company achieved fame throughout Europe – and, eventually, the entire globe – thanks to the accolades of Franz Liszt (himself, a proud Bosendorfer owner). The first of what would be a long list of distinguished “Bosendorfer Artists,” Liszt was thrilled to have an instrument that could project every nuance of his emotion. His enthusiasm for the piano drew other iconic composers and performers to the instrument – creating a demand that drives production to this day. Still handcrafted in the Viennese Tradition, Bosendorfer pianos take YEARS to build. Of the 300 or so completed each year, very few make it to the United States. This rarity – in conjunction with Bosendorfer’s iconic reputation – makes experiencing a Bosendorfer piano a truly unforgettable experience.
