Interesting Articles About The Bösendorfer Imperial Model 290 Piano
Throughout its ownership tenure, Kimball Intl. ensured that Bösendorfer retained its Austrian-European character, with pianos fashioned by hand in their craftsmen's traditional manner. On 7 January 2002, L. Bösendorfer Klavierfabrik GmbH was acquired by BAWAG-P.S.K. Group, then Austria's third largest banking concern. Then on 20 December 2007, BAWAG agreed to sell all shares in L. Bösendorfer Klavierfabrik GmbH to Yamaha Corporation of Hamamatsu, Shizuoka, Japan. The pending legal process means this is not likely to be concluded until sometime in 2008 assuming all approvals are granted. But with Yamaha's expertise in the areas of conventional and electronic instruments, their serious interest in music as a whole, and intelligent management, I expect the future of Bösendorfer may be brighter than it has been in some years.
