Fazioli pianos are present in countless theaters, universities, and academies around the world and are requested for the most prestigious piano competitions1. Many college institutions like Julliard are starting to move towards including Fazioli’s in their schools2. Some of the hundreds of institutions owning Fazioli pianos worldwide include the Paris Conservatory and the Universities of Vienna, Graz and Salzburg3.
Fazioli pianos are known for their exceptional craftsmanship, innovative design, and superior sound quality. They are handcrafted in Italy by skilled artisans who use the finest materials available, resulting in a unique and exclusive instrument1. Fazioli pianos offer performance improvements in an instrument that has remained virtually unchanged for 300 years2.
