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 F212 Fazioli 7 foot grand piano sound was delicious: it possessed an effortless crystal clear upper register that I enjoyed!"
"I started with the cheapest pianos, eventually ending up at the keyboard of the F183 Fazioli. I saved it for last because I truly didn't believe it would be that special, and that I would immediately turn back to another instrument that was cheaper and better. But that wasn't to be. It turned out to be as fabulous as the hype would have us believe. I was seduced by a lighter-than-average touch and a warm, expressive sound. Both were consistent from bass to treble. Getting fine dynamic shading in or playing fast runs evenly did seem easier."
"I tried a Fazioli once. A Fazioli artist was in town, doing a TSO gig (where I used to work) and I was then working for the venue, Roy Thomson and Massey Hall. No one was around except some lighting crew; the Fazioli was there, on stage off to the side, challenging me to do something about it. It's like Mt. Everest, you know? "Because it's THERE." So I played it. And played it. Oh god. My eyes rolled back into my head. If that's not an endorsement, I don't know what is; I can't keep going because it would have to be censored. I quietly left the stage, heart pounding ...."
"The Fazioli pianos at Showcase Pianos have an exquisite sound. I was particularly impressed with how responsive they were in reproducing a whispering pianissimo, and they were equally impressive in the larger dynamic range. For the owner of one of these pianos, most people would recognize immediately that you have something unique and very special."
"I love playing my Fazioli, it really lets me express myself like no other piano can!"
"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."
"The Fazioli is a very creative piano, it really lets you do all that your imagination wants to do. It has a huge range of colour, from the most powerful sounds to the most delicate sounds – which are all produced with great ease. It is my most precious possession!"
"You cannot help but fall in love with a Fazioli. It is of impeccable quality and incomparable to other pianos. When I first played a Fazioli and realised what a magical sound it was capable of making, it made me break out in a genuine smile right in the middle of my performance. This instrument is every pianists dream – not only because it never fails to be incredibly responsive, but because it really lets you turn your dreams into reality by allowing the player to create the music they hear in their mind."
"I have long admired Paolo Fazioli for having immersed himself in the worthy quest of creating the world's finest piano. I enthusiastically share the opinion of others who feel he has indeed accomplished his goal."
