Atlantic Music Center appointed Florida Bosendorfer representative

Atlantic Music has just been selected as the Florida repesentative for Bosendorfer pianos of Austria.

At the age of 19, Ignaz Bosendorfer began his apprenticeship with a Viennese organ and piano builder. Fifteen years later, in 1828, he requested a business license to start his own piano manufacturing company and took over his master’s factory to begin building his own instruments.

With a gleaming endorsement from Franz Liszt, Bosendorfer became famous as a concert grand. In 1830, the Emporer of Austria named Ignaz Bosendorfer “Imperial and Royal Piano Purveyor to the Court” – the first piano maker to receive this high honor. Numerous gold medals and first prizes followed.

In 1859, Ignaz died and his son Ludwig took over the company, his father having shared the secret of Bosendorfer pianos with him. Ludwig was a highly gifted musician with an exceptionally good ear. He improved on the design and the name Bosendofer became inextricably linked to the terms “music” and “touching sound.” At the end of the nineteenth century Bosendorfer pianos were built for Empress Elizabeth, Empress Eugenie of France, the emperor of Japan, the czars of Russia, and many others prominent individuals.

Since 1913, Bosendorfer pianos have been housed in one of the world’s most important music centers: Vienna’s Musikverein, a popular meeting place for artists from all over the world.

Ludwig Bosendorfer’s demands for uncompromising quality continue to hold today for all Bosendofer employees.
