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 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 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 ...."
“When I was rehearsing last night, the piano reminded me of a fine Bordeaux, like a Margaux or a Pauillac, which is powerful yet well-balanced, supple, and structured. What I love about Fazioli that other top pianos don’t offer is the clarity of registers throughout. The deep, roaring bass never drowns out the top as the top shines with its crystalline brilliance, while the middle register is full-bodied to keep things balanced.”
"My first experience performing and recording on a luminous Fazioli piano was in Montreal at the historic Chappelle Historique du Bon Pasteur. I was overjoyed to hear decades later that Showcase Pianos had brought these beautifully crafted and silky-sounding pianos into our city. Since then, Showcase Pianos has been generous in supporting young talent by hosting recitals and personally, for sponsoring and providing a Fazioli piano for my upcoming Recital for Hope."
"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!"
“The Fazioli is an exhilarating sonic experience for both performers and audience members.”
"What a breath of fresh air. When so much in this world is becoming mass - produced, when everything seems digital, when quality seems to be a long - forgotten term, we can at least see that it doesn't have to be that way. The vision of one man and a team of dedicated people can produce a beacon of beauty for everyone to marvel at."
"The Fazioli is the most outstanding piano that sings and soars with a musician's heart and soul. It is simply an instrument of incredible beauty!"
"The Fazioli piano is a feat of engineering, a superb instrument capable of delivering into the hands of an artist the ultimate palette with which to express every range of colour and brilliance. A perfected action and a luscious sound – an artist could not ask for more."
