When the borgeois culture, as it was called, still decided what belonged in the parlour, the "C. Bechstein" was often among the "furnishings", almost as a matter of course, just as piano lessons were part of one's upbringing. Even if some of these values have been lost by now a C. Bechstein piano still carries the legend and the aura of a great musical epoch. And since C. Bechstein has again been a continuous presence in the musical world for some years, the C. Bechstein piano has again found a link to its history and it's significance. This is a rare development, seemingly against the trend of our times. But if we take a closer look, behind it lies the longing for beauty in sound, and for the identity of a part of German, even of European, cultural history, which acheived a reputation across the world.
