Grotrian Steinweg was founded in Germany in 1858, and since that time, the company has become one of the most dominant names in the piano world. One of the founders, Wilhelm Grotrian, is quoted as saying to his sons, “Lads, build good pianos, and the rest will take care of itself,” and this mantra is arguably what has sustained Grotrian throughout the years.
Backed by 180 years of rich family history, knowledge, experience, and above all, a deep love for music, Grotrian is a name that has always held the respect and admiration of the piano world. It is a brand that has supplied pianos to Royal families across the European continent and has become the brand of choice for well-known musicians across the globe.
The long and storied history of Grotrian is shrouded in a sort of musical mysticism, which is often what draws pianists towards the brand. For musicians looking for a piano that has that something extra and is made in a country that is so widely celebrated for its prestigious pianos, there is nothing better than a Grotrian Steinweg piano.
Grotrian pianos are a beloved choice for their true singing tone accompanied by an incredible sustaining treble, powerful bass and darker tenor. Each Grotrian piano creates an entirely unique sound and playing experience for each pianist.
The prestigious German company is renowned for its high-quality workmanship that ensures each and every one of its pianos is built to last. At Markson Pianos, we are proud to offer a beautiful selection of Grotrian Steinweg Upright pianos to suit pianists of all abilities. As such, in this article, we wanted to explore some of our favourite models to help you gain a better understanding of the brand and why Grotrian is a name worth its weight.
The Grotrian Model 113 may be the smallest upright with a traditional case in Grotrian Steiweg’s range, but it sounds anything but small! Whilst most people think that a piano needs to be big in order to produce a full and powerful sound, the compact Model 113 proves otherwise.
