Schimmel first learned the craft of piano making in 1882 while training at the Vogel & Sons piano factory in Leipzig, Germany. The musical culture in Leipzig is a truly rich and vibrant one, as the city has been the artistic home of such musical masters as J.S. Bach, Mozart, Wagner, Schumann and Mahler. Not long after his apprenticeship, Schimmel started his own piano manufacturing company in Leipzig in 1885. Immediately, his pianos were hailed for their beautiful tone, advanced technique and eye-catching, contemporary design.
Schimmel tradition of master piano manufacturing has been passed down from generation to generation. Wilhelm’s son Wilhelm Arno Schimmel assumed control of the company in 1927, moving the headquarters to Brunswick where advancements and innovations in design allowed the piano house to flourish. In 1961, Nikolaus Wilhelm Schimmel became the company’s third generation leader. Design and manufacturing developments continued to intensify under his watch, resulting in the creation of a second series, the Concert (Konzert) Series, to accompany the original series, Classic Series, of Schimmel grand pianos. Today, Hannes Schimmel Vogel leads the Schimmel piano house into its future as a continuing leader in piano manufacturing. Under the company’s slogan, "Quality will prevail," a Schimmel grand piano will add a century’s worth of elegance to your home while bringing the universal gift of music to your family.
