It is finally here! Number 9 is proud to have a 9 D-280 Bechstein concert grand piano in our studios! It is the flagship of the Bechstein line, and is considered by many to be the “Stradivarius” of pianos. The D-280 could be the best concert grand piano in Toronto !
Bechstein pianos have been used by many great classical artists such as Debussy, Wagner, Rachmaninoff, Liszt and Bernstein as well as jazz legends the likes of Dave Brubeck, Count Basie, Duke Ellington and Chick Corea. Pop Legends like The Beatles, Queen, Elton John, Bob Dylan, David Bowie, Joni Mitchell, Elvis Costello, and Gwen Stefani, just to mention a few, have all used Bechsteins in their recordings over the years.
Ever hear a tune called “Hey Jude”? That legendary composition was recorded on a C. Bechstein 9′ concert grand.
Any pianist or music afficionado will be awed by this incredible piece of German craftsmanship. Our sound proof acoustically designed piano room is specifically tuned for this magnificient piano, optimizing its sound for recordings and performance. There is nothing quite like it anywhere in Toronto, so come on down and take a look at it yourself!
