The Sphinx grand piano – a masterpiece

The formidable sound quality combines modern concert culture with a regal presence. C. Bechstein has succeeded in resurrecting this historic treasure. This outstanding piece took 1800 working hours to create, over a total production time or 32 months.

Majestic, magnificent

A grand piano fit for a king! The styling, the adornments on the body, are an homage to the great Empire style period dating back to the time of Napoléon Bonaparte. The first model was built in 1886 as a special exhibition piece for C. Bechstein, London.

Dignified, splendid, graceful

The links with ancient art forms are unmistakable. Fine woods, materials of the highest quality and gold are integrated into every detail of this magnificent grand piano. A unique piece, a solitaire on a truly impressive scale! An encounter with this instrument is not to be forgotten. We are transported to another era. In our mind’s eye, we picture people in magnificent garments, engaging in lively and cultivated conversation.
