Since 1853, Blüthner pianos have been exclusively manufactured in Leipzig, Germany. The company was founded by Julius Blüthner, who sought to build the "best pianos in the world." To achieve this, he worked with composers such as Franz Liszt. Within a few short years, the likes of Brahms, Shostakovich, Prokofiev, Mahler, Moscheles, Nikisch, Rachmaninov, Schumann, and Tschaikovsky would be performing and composing primarily on Blüthner pianos. Debussy fell in love with his first Blüthner when he heard the resonance of the 4th string Aliquot. He would compose all his works on his Blüthner. Rachmaninov composed the larger body of his works in his younger years at the bench of his famous Blüthner grand.
Today, the Blüthner family of craftsman and entrepreneurs continues to head the Blüthner firm and personally oversee the production of each piano bearing their name. They strive to carry on the legacy of the founder, Julius Blüthner, to build the best pianos in the world. This high standard of precision and craftsmanship have been achieved here for over 150 years.
