The largest concert grand piano in production in the world is designed for large spaces and particularly more modern large-capacity concert halls, this is the absolute "crown jewel". It has immense power and an extraordinary harmonic richness, owing to the increased string-length in the bass section. It is provided with a fourth pedal patented by Fazioli. This pedal allow to turn down the volume without modifying the timbre.
AZIOLI pianos were first developed nearly 40 years ago by Paolo Fazioli, a pianist and engineer who wanted to create a piano that was significantly better than anything in existence. FAZIOLI makes around 140 pianos a year and each one takes more than 3 years to make. Sophisticated manufacturing techniques, woods of the highest quality and first rate components are used by the Fazioli technicians. Many of the parts are plated in 24K gold to prevent corrosion. FAZIOLI pianos feature many innovations - the sum of which has caused the pianos to be hailed as the absolute 'pinnacle' of the piano world. The heart of each FAZIOLI - the soundboard - is taken from the same trees in northern Italy's 'Val di Fiemme' forest where Antonio Stradivari once carved his wood for his famous violins. All six sizes have the option of being ordered with a fourth pedal patented by Fazioli Pianoforti, which allows the pianist to soften the sound without changing the voice or timbre.
FAZIOLI is considered the finest piano in the world. The Juilliard School in New York recently purchased a FAZIOLI for their concert hall.
