A grand piano is an object like no other. It is a thing of aesthetic beauty. It is elegance defined. A grand piano fills any room — any home, any space — they occupy with a sense of refinement and a grace note of class. And of course they produce the most beautiful music known to humanity. Perhaps this all seems superlative, but when describing grand pianos one simply must use these terms.
A grand piano, most often made in Germany, is a once in a lifetime purchase for most families, and indeed a fine piano must be acquired with much reflection and care, and not only because with excellence comes cost. More than that, any one considering the purchase of a fine piano must surely bear in mind that this object will likely be passed down from generation to generation, staying in the family for decades to come. Grand pianos do not simply become part of a home’s furnishings, they become a part of a family’s legacy.
But there is no reason to treat a grand piano as something that is not also to be used daily, to bring joy and to teach music and to brighten the face of everyone who sees and hears it there in your home. Pianos indeed produce the most elegant music — it is little wonder why they sit at the center of the symphonies and sonatas of masterful composers ranging from Beethoven to Bach, Copland to Phillip Glass to John Williams to Hanz Zimmer and on and on through history and up to the present day. But let’s not forget that the piano is also at the center of many forms of music, from classic jazz to Delta blues.
Pianos are the most pure instrument in the estimation of many music theorists, and thus are a wonderful teaching tool both for the budding student, the advanced learner, or the casual musician. For children, studying how to play the piano is not only a wonderful entrance into the world of music, but can also greatly enhance their aptitude for mathematical practices and for educational discipline in general. For adults of any age — especially older adults — studying, practicing, and playing piano music is a great way to preserve the plasticity of the brain, constantly challenging the mind with new and enjoyable, engaging activities.
So ask yourself: are you ready for a grand piano?
We think that you are!
Grand pianos are investments that can be purchased today and enjoyed immediately but that you can rest assured that, if well maintained and cared for, will only go up in value over the years and decades to come. Unlike with so many products, well made musical instruments only appreciate as they age, and that is to say appreciate both in monetary value, but also in their own innate qualities: as pianos, violins, guitars, and other instruments largely wrought of wood age, their tonal quality — their clarity of notes and resonance — only gets better and better. Truly accomplished, masterful pianists will scour the globe looking for older, well preserved instruments, knowing that they produce the finest music. You may well be providing your descendants with the object they will most cherish in many years to come even as you acquire the object you will most cherish in the here and now.
If you and your family are ready to acquire a grand piano, you are ready to commit to a life more filled with beautiful music and a home more filled with elegance and charm. You are also presented with a host of options much broader than you might expect. There are myriad types and styles of grand pianos at your disposal, ranging in size, shape, and style. You will be more than able to find the grand piano that best fits your home and your family. From Baby Grands to full sized instruments to anything in between, the piano you have pictured is ready and waiting for you!
