Pianists

Promoting culture and piano music has been part of C. Bechstein’s philosophy since the founding of the company in 1853. While the Bechstein concert halls in Berlin, London, Paris and St. Petersburg were famous locations in yesterday’s Europe, numerous great contemporary artists favor Bechstein pianos for performing at festivals or C. Bechstein recitals. You’ll find below a list of pianists who have played or recorded on Bechstein. Just click on the pictures to get more information. Please note that the pianists presented here are not bound to Bechstein by exclusivity contracts.
