The C. Bechstein company breaks new ground: At the invitation of the German jewellery manufacturer Wellendorff, Bechstein took part in the opening ceremonies of a new Wellendorff shop in Beijing.

For the event, Bechstein provided an instrument on a par with the sumptuous jewels on display at the new Wellendorff premises: a C. Bechstein L 167 grand piano in a burled walnut finish and in the rounded, elegant forms of the Chippendale style. The instrument’s wonderfully noble sound enchanted the discriminating Chinese audience.

Wellendorff has stood for the pinnacle of quality in jewellery since 1893, while Bechstein has been producing top-class pianos for even longer: since 1853. The two historic companies are currently expanding in China, and spreading the reputation for excellent craftsmanship that has made the label “Made in Germany” a seal of quality.
