Bosendorfer Camellia

7' Ultimate Design Collection Grand Piano

The East Asian Camellia bushes have long been treasured around the world for their rich floral colours, intoxicating scents and for their role in producing some of the world's finest black and green teas. They were so revered in European society that Empress Maria Theresia and her husband Franz I. Stephan brought an eqcuisite collection of camellias to their palace greenhouse in Vienna. For 100 years, these flowers were viewed as symbols of the Austrian Monarchy. They were such cultural icons that - in 1853 - Giuseppe Verdi set the novel Camille by Alexandre Dumas to music - thus creating one of the most iconic operas in the history of music: La traviata. To honor this global heritage, Bosendorfer decided to enshrine the beautity and symbolism of these glorious specimens into the lid of a 214VC Bosendorfer Artisan Piano. Only 18 will ever be created and you can see this stunning piano exclusively at Riverton Piano Company.

The intricate patterns of flowers, leaves and stems inlaid in the underside of the piano's lid are hand-fitted into the piano's finish using sumptuous specimens of tulip, sycamore, ash and walnut. Artisans at Bosendorfer then apply a traditional sand shading technique that gives the artwork a breathtaking three-dimensional quality. Camellia is a singular masterpiece of form and function - equal to the greatest wonders of our modern society.

Riverton Piano Company is Arizona's only factory-authorized Bosendorfer dealership. Come and see us today. We look forward to hosting your Bosendorfer Piano experience.

About the 214 VC Bosendorfer Piano

Featuring Bosendorfer's all-new Vienna Concert technology, the 214 VC Bosendorfer Grand Piano is perfectly optimized to project a world of color into any musical setting. Vienna Concert is a masterful melding of nearly two centuries of piano building experience and modern scientific tools that further accentuate the multifaceted and expressive nature of a Bosendorfer Artisan Grand Piano. Reimagined from scratch - yet true to the iconic Bosendorfer sound philosophy - these new pianos represent The Next Generation of Bosendorfer Artisan Grand Pianos with breathtaking dynamics, astounding colors and exhilarating brilliance.

Not everything is new, however. Bosendorfer artisans still build 85% of the piano out of Bavarian Spruce tonewood. The piano's rim and frame are still made with solid spruce. Much like a fine violin, this gives the entire piano a role in tone production - unlike other instruments whose manufactures think of the piano's frame and rim as purely structural or decorative in nature. This "Spruce Resonance Case" is made of only the finest Bavarian spruce and is naturally dried for five years before use. The piano is then fitted with a custom cast iron plate, individually-attached strings, hand-wound (bass) strings, an open pin block (for unparalleled durability and tuning stability), a custom Kluge keyboard and a custom Renner action - the finest made in the World today.
