New Bösendorfer 214VC Grand Piano
Dating back over two hundred years, it’s little wonder why the Bösendorfer brand is well-respected and trusted by musicians across the globe. In 1794, Ignaz Bösendorfer was born in Vienna, and started an apprenticeship with Joseph Brodmann, becoming a gifted piano maker in his own right and receiving his first award from the Viennese Academy of Arts in 1815. From then, Ignaz’s skill and knowledge led him to take over the firm from Joseph Brodmann, who retired in 1828. The rest, as they say, is history.
Today, Bösendorfer is one of the most well-respected piano brands in the world. Its latest model, the Bösendorfer 214VC, brings with it the same passion and craftsmanship as the models created by Ignaz Bösendorfer himself, fine-tuned for the modern generation. This Vienna Concert piano, based on the success of the Bösendorfer Concert Grand 280VC, has been upgraded to combine close to two centuries of experience and the latest technological advances in 3D modelling and piano manufacturing.
This compact machine offers dynamic responsiveness and energy that truly belongs to the musician who chooses to play on it. Featuring sophisticated Vienna Concert technology, VC action geometry for optimal play and controllability and an independent Capo d’Astro to allow for adjustment in the descant registry, this 214VC is a must-have for any serious pianist, whether for use in the home, the studio or commercial recordings and performances.
The VC technology included in this unit, which stands for Vienna Concert technology, is characterised by projecting an array of colours and optimised interplay to improve the sound and experience of this instrument – perfect for those wanting to replicate the sheer thrill of playing a Vienna Concert.

True craftsmanship and sophisticated materials
To build an instrument of such quality, only the very best materials can be used. The Bösendorfer have carefully sourced European raw materials, which have been sophisticatedly processed to allow for a stunning construction. The resonance body, for example, is made from Austrian spruce resonance wood, while the single stringing has been created through hand spun Bösendorfer bass strings. Handcrafted in Austria, where up to 587 hours of work goes into each instrument, the Bösendorfer 214VC is the ultimate choice.
