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.
"They feel every bit alive, providing more than any pianist could desire. The dynamic range is unbelievable."
"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."
"The Fazioli is every pianist's dream. This piano can sing - cry - scream - and even dance for you. Anything you ask of it - it responds beautifully. Thank you for bringing this incredible "Dream Machine" to Vancouver. It is quite simply the most wonderful piano being made in the world today."
"The Fazioli is a dream to play and literally made to perfection. It has the highest quality of workmanship; from its dazzling sound, to its majestic presence."
"Fazioli pianos reveal an enchanting world of subtle sonorities unimaginable on other pianos. They draw the player into a state of delicate expressiveness and sensitivity."
"I was very impressed with the overall presentation, style, high quality of technology of the Fazioli and Bechstein Pianos. The tone of the elegant Fazioli is unique, crystal clean, and at the same time incredibly rich and powerful . Very sensitive action-absolutely amazing. Obviously, Fazioli is a new generation for the piano industry, and it's a great privilege and joy to play on this spectacular instrument."
"Playing on a Fazioli It's an incredible experience and a huge sense of quality resounds from any perspective. The manufacture of the keyboard allows such powerful and precise control of the sound that it gives comfortable space to the creation of wider ranges of sounds and dynamics. It's an unbelievable experience to play on an instrument that implicitly helps to shape better the imagination of how a piece of music could be done."
"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 ...."
"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."
