This Bluthner ‘Model A’ upright piano in black finish is a 124cm (4’1″) upright that is handmade in Leipzig (Germany) where the Blüthner family have been manufacturing pianos since 1853. The ‘Model A’ has a solid frame (that is strengthened with five beams for optimal tuning stability) that provides ideal conditions for the action and soundboard to respond to the player’s every intention. Enjoy the warmth
of Bluthner‘s world famous ‘Golden Tone’ in its many facets and colours from a most delicate pianissimo to a powerful and rich fortissimo.

The Bluthner ‘Model A’ in the in the Royal College of Music
In 2020, The Royal College of Music in London added 10 new Blüthner Model A upright pianos. The pianos have been installed within the new suite of practice rooms located in the College’s ‘More Music’ development which provided the highest quality instruments for their talented students. Commenting on the new Blüthner pianos at the college, Professor Vanessa Latarche – the ‘Head of Keyboard’ at The Royal College of Music – said: “We’re very grateful to be able to furnish our new practice rooms with instruments of the highest quality”, especially at a time when we’re focussing on enhancing the College’s provision by investing in our campus and students. The RCM has an excellent reputation for producing exceptional pianists, who excel in both solo and collaborative performance. As the College has just begun its autumn term [2020], having these pianos in situ will prove incredibly beneficial to our students, both new and returning”.

If you choose to own a Bluthner, you are in good company!
For generations, pianists and composers including: Brahms, Prokofiev, Shostakovich, Debussy, Rachmaninov, Kempff, Liszt, Wagner, Grieg, Shostakovich, Dvorak, Bartok, Furtwangler, Schumann, Ravel, Bruckner, Mahler, Reger, Strauss, Rubinstein, Tchaikovsky, Liberace, and Andrew Lloyd Webber have all enjoyed Blüthner pianos… and let’s not forget all those tracks that were recorded on the Bluthner at Abbey Road Studios in London which can be heard on The Beatles’ ‘Let It Be’ and ‘The Long and Winding Road’. Claude Debussy said to the Blüthner company, “I would like to convey my compliments for your very favorable concert grand. The touch is extraordinary and the tone is so beautiful that I must express my utter admiration for this instrument“; Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber composed musicals such as ‘Cats’ and ‘The Phantom of the Opera’ on his Blüthner grand piano; Franz Liszt said “Whenever I have played a Blüthner on my concert tours, it has always proven itself to be among the best and melodious instruments I have ever known“; Sergei Prokofiev said, “My Blüthner pushes me to compose everyday and has become an irreplaceable and loyal companion“; Stevie Wonder said, “I’ve known Blüthner for many years and I love them. Their sound is incredible”; and Sergei Rachmaninoff said “There are only two important things which I took with me on my way to America. My wife Natalia and my precious Blüthner“.

Bluthner Piano History: 1853 to Today
In the middle of the 19th century, the city of Leipzig in Germany was one of the cultural centres at the heart of Europe, equal to Paris, London or Vienna; and the Blüthner family became part – and still are – a major part of the musical tradition of the city. Julius Blüthner opened his piano factory on the 18th of November 1853 and his instruments soon achieved acclaim, rose to prominence, and captured the attention of top pianists and musical authorities. Blüthner won top prizes at world exhibitions around the globe and in 1876, his 4th string Aliquot design – which would influence the ‘Golden Tone’ of Blüthner pianos for evermore – won gold medal at the Philadelphia World’s Fair. Amazingly, the Blüthner piano company is still based in Leipzig and still owned and run by the Blüthner family.
