Fazioli Grand Pianos: From the Dream to the Sound

This book reveals the passion and expertise of those engaged in the construction of a unique and precious object destined for the world of art.

Music critic Sandro Cappelletto tells the tale of a company that has been producing grand and concert pianos since 1981, when it was founded by Paolo Fazioli. Fazioli is therefore celebrating its fortieth anniversary in 2021. Passion for music and scientific skill, great craftsmanship, continuous technological research, and careful selection of materials are the necessary requirements for producing a Fazioli piano.
 
The history of the company has been characterized by a crescendo of successes, from the first international exhibitions to acquisition by major global retailers, from sales at the world’s most prestigious theaters to close collaborations with famous artists who have exclusively requested Fazioli pianos for their concerts. The great pianists Angela Hewitt and Maurizio Baglini offer their precious perspectives in this book through conversations with Sandro Cappelletto.
