Since the establishment of C. Bechstein Pianofortefabrik in 1853, the promotion of piano culture is part of the company's philosophy. Just as formerly the Bechstein halls in Berlin, London, Paris and St. Petersburg were focal points of concert life, today numerous pianists perform in the C. Bechstein concert series or play at festivals or in concert houses on Bechstein grand pianos. Here you find many past and present artists who have played and/or recorded on Bechstein.
