The new Vienna Imperial virtual grand piano is in a class of its own. The venerable Bösendorfer Imperial 290-755 that the Vienna team hosted at the Silent Stage for two months was equipped with the famed piano manufacturer’s CEUS technology, which allowed for the most precise and by far most extensive piano sample recordings ever conducted in the history of music technology. 1,200 recorded samples per key represent a magnitude of sampling detail that has been unthinkable up to now.
Both the Rieger Organ from the Great Hall of the Wiener Konzerthaus and the Bösendorfer Imperial Grand Piano truly reflect the impressive sound of Vienna. This is the city’s legacy, transported to the 21st century by the means of technology, passion, and craftsmanship. These keyboard instruments are complemented by the Special Keyboards Collection, including prepared piano, harmonium, and harpsichord.
