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.
"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."
"Fazioli has a very limited production, so they make sure that everything is impeccable – the action is so fluid, so even – it's almost like a massage for a pianist! "
"From the moment I touched the keys of the gorgeous Fazioli piano - I knew in an instant something was different. The tone was so rich and warm, yet filled with tremendous power. Its sensitivity was magnified by its striking clarity. I have been in love with Fazioli pianos ever since."
"Playing the Fazioli..has been one of my life's most wonderful experiences."
"Words really can't properly express my enthusiasm for these incredible instruments. I have played many hundreds of instruments in my 28 years of professional music making, and I can honestly say that the Fazioli is simply the finest instrument I have ever had the privilege to play."
"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!"
"I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for providing the marvelous 7' Fazioli for the Vetta chamber concert. Having an instrument that possesses such clarity and evenness of tone for the concert allowed me to play with freedom and confidence in the result. It was the first time that I had tried the Fazioli and it certainly lived up to all of the advance press that I had heard and read. It responds reliably, immediately, and has an incredible bass and high treble. The workmanship is second to none. "
"The crystalline clarity of a Fazioli piano combined with a limitless palette of tonal color gives the performer the ability to fully realize their artistic soul. This is a rare and unique jewel, and an experience not to be missed."
"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."
