Grotrian

PianoForte Chicago offers Grotrian grand pianos and upright pianos

Hand Crafted in Germany

Original Grortrian factory

Grotrian-Steinweg factory circa 1880

All Grotrian grand pianos are completely built in Braunschweig, Germany– with most of the instrument made by hand!

According to the Grotrian family “to build pianos with less effort would mean that they would never reach the high quality and stability, nor would they sound so beautiful.”

Larry Fine, author of the definitive book on piano buying, stated that modern Grotrian pianos are among the “highest quality”, on par with Hamburg-built Steinways, Faziolis and Bösendorfers.
