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 is a beautiful instrument, one of the most interesting pianos I've ever played!"
“The Fazioli is an exhilarating sonic experience for both performers and audience members.”
"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 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."
"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."
"... an instrument of rare distinction ..."
"They feel every bit alive, providing more than any pianist could desire. The dynamic range is unbelievable."
"The Fazioli is truly the best piano in the world. I have heard and played many pianos and a few piano-shaped objects. The Fazioli outshines them all, with beautiful tone, total responsiveness, and awesome power. I begged my parents to buy one for me. So now I have a gorgeous 7' Fazioli to make music with, and it will be my constant companion for the rest of my life."
"I spent my b-day in Vancouver trying out as many concert grand pianos as I could find. Maybe that sounds like a strange way to spend a birthday, but for me, it's like being in heaven for a day. The pianos that stood out, I mean, sparkled like diamonds in a bag of charcoal dust, are called Fazioli and they are made in Italy. I had to lean way back while playing on them because I didn't want to get drool all over the keys."
