Fazioli Pianoforti is a high-end maker of hand-built pianos, base in Sacile, Italy. Fazioli produces about 100 pianos a year from its single factory. Passion for music, great artisanship, continuous technological research and strict material selection: these are the elements required for building a Fazioli piano.
“The touch is highly responsive; encouraging and facilitating tonally nuanced playing. Truly a very rewarding artistic experience! I can see why the Fazioli is in demand as a recording instrument as well as for live concerts."
"I've played a lot of amazing pianos over my 20-year career - each of them exceptional in their own right. The first time I sat down to a FAZIOLI, it felt like reconnecting with an old friend. The warmth of the tone, the easy camaraderie between my hands and the keys, and the subtle nuances floored me. It felt like home, like an extension of my own body. And that's an incredible experience!"
"What sets Fazioli apart from other pianos? Resonance, richness of tone, dynamic Range. I know that Mr. Fazioli personally selects only trees that make the best tone. Believe me, this is something that I notice when I play. The Fazioli brand is simply unmatched."
"I spent my b-day in Vancouver trying out as many concert grand pianos as I could find. Maybe that sounds like a strange way to spend a birthday, but for me, it's like being in heaven for a day. The pianos that stood out, I mean, sparkled like diamonds in a bag of charcoal dust, are called Fazioli and they are made in Italy. I had to lean way back while playing on them because I didn't want to get drool all over the keys."
"Don't you wish you could have been at Joan Sutherland's Italian debut at La Fenice theater in Venice in 1959? Imagine the purity of her tones as she brought the bel canto beauties of 'Lucia' back to Venice for the first time in over 30 years ... The sound is sustained beyond your imagination, just as it might be if you were privileged, like the popes are, to hear the Schola Cantorum Romana sing Palestrina or Pergolesi at its home in the Sistine Chapel. If you can imagine all this, you can imagine what it is like to play a Fazioli."
"The Fazioli is a beautiful instrument, one of the most interesting pianos I've ever played!"
"I liked the Fazioli in Calgary during the Honens International Piano Competition very much and had a good collaboration with the Fazioli technician Michael Lipnicki. Unfortunately I don't have a chance to play Fazioli pianos often however I just love playing them. They offer an vast range of possibilities, very creative pianos. Wish I could play Fazioli more often".
"The Fazioli is truly the best piano in the world. I have heard and played many pianos and a few piano-shaped objects. The Fazioli outshines them all, with beautiful tone, total responsiveness, and awesome power. I begged my parents to buy one for me. So now I have a gorgeous 7' Fazioli to make music with, and it will be my constant companion for the rest of my life."
"It was a real joy for me to be introduced to the Fazioli. Such great beauty, lightness of touch, along with a great range of sound makes this piano truly a special one – it's a dream for any concert pianist to perform on."
