Bosendorfer Secession

In 1897 in Vienna, a group of Austrian artists split off from the traditional Vienna Künstlerhaus with the slogan “Ver Sacrum” (holy spring). “A fresh wind shall blow, which shall sweep away the backwardness of the Künstlerhaus.” Led by Gustav Klimt, many artistic greats followed, among them Koloman Moser, Josef Hoffmann and Joseph Maria Olbrich. They shaped the Secession style, which is often also called Viennese Jugendstil. With this splitting off, the need for a building for the new artistic association emerged, where the artworks could be exhibited. Inspired by Otto Wagner and Gustav Klimt, Joseph Maria Olbrich drafted the Secession building, a “temple of art” and one of the key works of Viennese Jugendstil. Especially impressive is how the Secession movement realizes its motto Ver Sacrum with the cupola’s leaf canopy. The building’s towering symbol exhibits a diameter of 9 metres. Gossamer gold leaf, ingeniously applied to the green-coloured leaves, accounts for the overwhelming, luminous effect.

The Bösendorfer Secession Grand takes up this symbol of bay leaves in ornamented form from the façade. Gold-plated with 23-carat gold, the leaves on the inside of the lid shine, as does the gold-plated cast iron frame. The inside walls of the case and the pin block take up the delicate green colour of the bay leaves from the cupola. The motto Ver Sacrumis engraved in the music stand letter by letter and likewise gold-plated with 23-carat gold. The edge of the lid and the pedal box are rimmed with gold-plated lines done by hand. The model Secession captivates in size 214VC Vienna Concert Grand with brilliant sound and sheer inexhaustible tone colours. As a collector’s item, the design is limited to 21 instruments. The Bösendorfer Secession Grand Piano exudes the creative power of the Secessionists: unity in diversity as well as the revolutionary thoughts of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony—a zeitgeist that will likely never lose its validity.

Every detail of a Bösendorfer Piano is carefully considered.

Resonance Case Principle
Very similar in principle to a violin, the whole body, not just the soundboard, supports sound formation. The core of the piano rim consists of a 10 mm quarter-sawn piece that is specially grooved by experienced craftsmen to allow it to be bent to the silhouette around the inner rim. This is unique to Bösendorfer. When a note is played, the integrated spruce components become acoustically active, forming a complete resonating body that allows the whole instrument to project your play and delivers an outstanding richness of tone colour. This complex construction is part of the Viennese tradition of piano making.
Individual Stringing
Each string is individually attached with a handmade loop. Over time this improves tuning stability and is particularly service friendly.
Unique Bass Strings
All bass strings are spun in the unique Bösendorfer way. A steel core string is the basis for 1 or two layers of copper and the carefully spun strings are a substantial element of the warm and sonorous Bösendorfer bass.
Independent Capo d’Astro
Bösendorfer is the only piano manufacturer that applies a detachable and independent Capo d’Astro in the upper register. This is how they assure an utmost precise adjustment in the upper register guaranteeing the original Bösendorfer Sound for generations.
Open Pinblock
An open pinblock consists of 3 layers of 7mm quarter sawn maple, glued cross-grained to each other. Settled on a base of red beech, this construction offers a firm basis for the pins tied with strings. The top layer is refined with a 1.5mm walnut veneer.
