“Playing the Fazioli has been one of my life’s most wonderful experiences.”
It’s high praise from concert pianist Daniil Trifonov, winner of the International Tchaikovsky and Rubinstein Competitions, and a sentiment the professionals at Vancouver’s Showcase Pianos hear often.
“The Fazioli is the most outstanding piano that sings and soars with a musician’s heart and soul,” reflects concert pianist Poh-Lin Koh. “It is simply an instrument of incredible beauty!”
Hand-crafting the finest pianos available in the world – fans include jazz legend Herbie Hancock and Angela Hewitt, the world’s leading interpreter of Bach music – Fazioli Pianoforti produces about 100 pianos a year from its single factory in Sacile, Italy. Passion for music, artisanship, strict material selection and continuous technological research all combine to create these unique instruments.
Showcase offers Fazioli pianos in six sizes, which can all be ordered with Fazioli’s patented fourth pedal. This innovation allows the pianist to soften the sound without changing the voice or timbre, explains Cindy Cheng, noting that music lovers can also see the pianos at several local hotels, luxury apartments and the Oakridge Centre.
Many unique options in store
In addition to the celebrated Fazioli pianos, Showcase provides clients access to the top instruments from Italy and Germany and the knowledgeable expertise to help you choose the perfect piano for your home.
Sought-after brands include C. Bechstein, Grotarian, Seiler and others – longstanding companies built upon reputations of quality craftsmanship and a commitment to an exceptional music experience.
And exciting news from the Aberdeen Centre location: The C. Bechstien Sphinx piano has arrived! With formidable sound quality and a regal presence that took 1,800 working hours over 32 months to create, it’s the first time the Sphinx piano – priced at $1,400,000 CAD – has come to North America.
For those embarking on their first piano purchase, Showcase Pianos also provides many quality used pianos that have been received on trade against Fazioli and Grotrian pianos.
With most previously owned pianos available for viewing at the main store, #1 – 1128 West Broadway, music enthusiasts appreciate the opportunity to bring a beautiful instrument into their home at a reasonable price. All pianos have been inspected and maintained by one of Vancouver’s best technicians, and prices include bench, deliver, and one in-home tuning.
