Paolo Fazioli Playing on Our FAZIOLI F278

Italian piano maker Paolo Fazioli plays our concert grand FAZIOLI piano.

FAZIOLI 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.

The piano is a stringed keyboard instrument in which the strings are struck by wooden hammers that are coated with a softer material. It is played using a keyboard, which is a row of keys that the performer presses down or strikes with the fingers and thumbs of both hands to cause the hammers to strike the strings.
