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."
"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 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."
"I've played a lot of amazing pianos over my 20-year career - each of them exceptional in their own right. The first time I sat down to a FAZIOLI, it felt like reconnecting with an old friend. The warmth of the tone, the easy camaraderie between my hands and the keys, and the subtle nuances floored me. It felt like home, like an extension of my own body. And that's an incredible experience!"
"The Fazioli piano embodies the true spirit, essence and magic of the pianist. I have never felt so blessed and filled with joy when playing a piano in my life. I believe there is no limit to what a pianist can achieve on a Fazioli."
"I always thought my German grand piano was the next step to Heaven – until I played a Fazioli grand… I look forward to recording a CD on such a uniquely inspiring instrument which clearly towers in a class of it's own!"
"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."
"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."
"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."
