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.
"Once you get past the visual impact of the craftsman-like elegance of the Fazioli concert grand, you sit down and play a chord - and the piano says "as you like it". It will bring incredible gradations of tone easily, from a shimmering glassy pianissimo to a thundering triple forte. I divide pianos into two categories, the first piano says "anything you say!" and the second says "just try and make me!"
"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."
"Every Fazioli piano is a work of art with perfectly balanced sonority and a smooth registry. They are never mechanical instruments - instead, they make me feel like I'm singing from my fingers!"
"They feel every bit alive, providing more than any pianist could desire. The dynamic range is unbelievable."
"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."
"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."
"Last week I did the 2nd tuning for the Fazioli F183 in Victoria. What a beautiful piano!! The tenor area is so gorgeous, like a perfect cello. I've never heard anything like it. It was such an enjoyable tuning, the piano almost tunes itself! The family is very happy with the instrument and have abandoned the old upright for family lessons. Everyone in the family uses the Fazioli."
"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."
"This is my first time to have the experience of making music on a Fazioli piano. What an awesome piano – the best I have ever played in my life! The time flies by and I get lost in its awesome sound. The sound and touch of the entire keyboard is so consistent. It responds in a way I have never felt on other pianos. I am getting so spoiled! I happily express my enthusiasm for the Fazioli piano – it is the best I have ever heard!"
