Carl Bechstein built his first piano in 1853 and soon earned the respect of
great piano composers such as Debussy and Liszt. Bechstein Pianos fast became a
standard to which all other European pianos attained to.
Within 10 years of its foundation the Bechstein Piano "machine" was employing
130 workers and producing 400 pianos per year. Production of the Bechstein
piano range continued to flourish into the 20th century until two world wars
crippled the factories. However, by selling shares to the American piano-makers
Baldwin", Bechstein piano production was able to continue again in 1945
In the 1980s Bechstein regained control of the company by buying back its
shares and moving the piano factory back to its original home in Berlin.
Bechstein Pianos have since regained their reputation as being amongst the very
finest pianos in the world.
