Boesendorfers were built to stand up under the legendary hand of the man considered by many to be a defining force of the modern piano – Franz Liszt. The result of his relationship with the Bosendorfer company is a piano that performs like no other and the double escapement action, having been totally reconditioned with German components and carefully adjusted, is a pleasure. The hammers retain their leather cover, resulting in a strike that is not heard in the modern-day instrument. This grand old lady does not disappoint.
