History

Carl Bechstein became a professional piano maker during the years spent in England and France. In 1853 he established his own business in the piano industry. The first sign of his craftsmanship was the golden medal award on the international exhibition in London. There was offices opened in London and Petersburg, a concert hall and two factories in Berlin to the end of the XIX century. Carl died in 1900, and then his sons Edvin, Carl and Johannes inherited the business. In the new century, the company achieved great results, and made 5,000 instruments in 1919. The first electric piano in history was made in 1930 as a result of the cooperation with Nobelist Wltherem Nemst. Second World War left a big loss in the C.Bechstein copmany. Jews emigration, high duty, internal family problems caused decrease in production. British and American bombings destroyed factories, and absolutely stopped production activity. The piano production resumed in 1954. It was really difficult to go back to the good times at the beginning of the XIX century. Karol Schulze was the one who brought it back. He bought the whole company from the Baldwin Company in 1986. Getting into stock exchange, opening new factories and prestigious salons strengthened its position in the industry.
