Grand Bohemian – The Piano by Bösendorfer

To find inspiration for a new limited edition piano, Bösendorfer collaborated with Richard Kessler, to create Grand Bohemian, the Piano.

Grand Bohemian - The Piano by BösendorferSince the company’s beginnings in 1828, Bösendorfer has remained unwaveringly committed to crafting the finest pianos in the world, but it also pays meticulous attention to the design of each individual instrument. This is clearly evident in past collaborations with traditional designers such as Anton Grosser and Theophil Hansen, as well as F.A Porsche and Audi, which have resulted in exciting new designs for such a majestic instrument.

Grand Bohemian - The Piano by BösendorferThe Grand Bohemian piano builds upon this legacy of deeply committed collaboration and is as much a work of art as it is a musical instrument.

Keeping the acoustic integrity of the piano intact was a key consideration. The exterior, on the other hand, provides unlimited creative possibilities, and the Grand Bohemian piano is a prime example of how traditional piano building craftsmanship seamlessly combines with a magnificent design.”

The Grand Bohemian was inspired by a painting of a peacock and the collection of bronze sculpture Kessler owns.

The Grand Bohemian piano would look as at home in a mythical forest as an art museum or luxury penthouse, with a bronze-cast base evocative of tree branches and adorned with woodland creatures.

A peacock, with feathers unfurled, makes up the music stand, and the entire piano frame has been painstakingly covered by hand with gold leaf. LED lighting within the soundboard area and under lighting at the base give the piano an otherworldly glow – an appropriate finishing touch for such a grand instrument.

It’s classic, yet edgy, with a distinctive Baroque funk factor, perfectly in tune with the Kessler Collection’s unique brand. “Designing this piano was one of the most enjoyable things I’ve ever done,” Kessler says proudly.

The Bösendorfer Grand Bohemian Special Edition piano is limited to only nine of these musical instruments.
