Sometimes pianists try to sound like singers: Me personally I try to sound like a Bösendorfer.
The sound of Bösendorfer is very Viennese, in the best sense. With other pianos I don´t feel the slightest bit nostalgic but with Bösendorfer I feel considerable nostalgia. The differenciation and the truly fine sound, that´s Bösendorfer.
I give Mira and the entire Bösendorfer team my heartfelt thanks for their affection and friendship and the warmth with which they follow my career as a pianist. There are never enough words for the beauty of the pianos. With appreciation!

I have always loved the sound of a Bösendorfer piano - playing such an instrument inspires one to try to find the most beautiful sound possible.

I am never satisfied with mere perfection. It is uniqueness that I seek. Boesendorfer gives me a unique voice, unique palette of musical colors, unique tools to achieve my vision. From the most intimate recording studio to majestic spans of Royal Albert Hall - Boesendorfer is my ultimate choice.
Prof. Paul Badura-Skoda: Bearer of the "Bösendorfer-Ring"
Once again the beautiful, singing Bösendorfer tone.
I performed my very first recital, in the Brahms-Saal [of the Vienna Musikverein] on March 27, 1943, on a Bösendorfer. I likewise performed my 80th birthday recital, on December 20, 2008, on a magnificent Imperial. It should remain thus!
For me, a Bösendorfer means clarity and warmth, which I do not wish to miss.
To Bosendorfer: Always a friend - loving and faithful
For Bösendorfer, warmest regards.
For all my life - my piano.
Conductor Joji Hattori
I grew up in Vienna listening to the special sound of Bösendorfer, recently I have acquired an old Bösendorfer in perfect condition from the 1930`s - I love it!

The long, often surprising history of the Bösendorfer company has time and again given us musicians occasion for joy.
Bösendorfer is a proud instrument. You have to conquer it, convince it, and then it gives you everything in its possession.
Bösendorfer: the shortest way from a Keyboard to the heart of Music!
A piano I really treasure! Till next time.
There is no other piano in the world that can be called Alive. Alive as you would see yourself or a friend.
A lovely privilege to be playing such beautiful pianos.
For me, the warm depth of sound and a wide dynamic range combined with excellent playability distinguish the special character of a Bösendorfer grand.

Bösendorfer's tone colors captivate the listener by their variety and inspire the ensemble through their breadth.
How fortunate to be among The people of Boesendorfer, my "friend" piano! The sound of my personal history , of my musical growth, the pianistic ideal, the pianistic ideal, to whose achievement I strive every day on my "Bosey", that I have the fortune of having on my side for the scarlattian Odissey. I wish to this Viennese treasure to continue to represent the highest standard of instrumental beauty.

Time and again, it's quite something to have a "friend named Bösendorfer" under your fingers. A friend a pianist can rely on!

The Vienna Philharmonic and Bösendorfer represent the "Viennese Sound".

Playing a Bösendorfer is always a special experience.
During the years I served as concertmaster of the Vienna PhilharmonicI had the opportunity to perform with great soloists. And always with Bösendorfer of course.
We create the greatest concert experiences in the sound world of a Bösendorfer: Bösendorfer transports emotion.
Some people think that a Boesendorfer is a piano, but with very much less the Greek would have constructed a God.
my primary reason for playing is composing, and i chose the bøsendorfer for its unique lyrical sound. i love the fact that bøsendorfer build their pianos more like a string-instrument than a percussive instrument - it's a kind of grown-up relative of the cello!
Matt Bellamy of Muse, the famous British musician and songwriter, has recently purchased a Boesendorfer 225 for his personal use. Brian Kemble, Managing Director of Boesendorfer stated – “our celebrated Boesendorfer sound is not restricted to any one type of music genre. We are delighted that Matt has selected us.”
For someone who responds and works continuously wioth the sound world, the Bösendorfer is undoubtedly the ultimate instrument of musical expression.
I have always believed great sound inspires creativity. With Bösendorfer, I literally feel myself writing better as I play!
Each moment is eternal. And most beautiful with a Bösendorfer.
For me, a Bösendorfer piano represents every aspect of the musical spectrum. Treble, bass, dynamics, lyricism, interaction… When I play a Bösendorfer, I feel truly in control of the performance. The Bösendorfer’s sound is beautiful and breathtaking.
