The exhibition showcased two piano masterpieces – Blüthner Model 11 and Blüthner PH
In addition to the sublime moments and the world-renowned works on the Model 1 Blüthner, guests also had the opportunity to admire the beauty of two other great masterpieces in the piano world: Blüthner Model 11 and Blüthner PH.
Despite being the smallest size of the Grands, Blüthner Model 11 with resonance panel is ingeniously crafted by the skilled artisans with the outstanding sound which is not inferior to the previous versions of the brand.
On the contrary to the classic beauty, the Blüthner PH piano represents a modern, futuristic look even though it was designed in the 20th century. With its unique material made from high-class Plexiglass, Blüthner PH became a splendid work that attracted every gaze in the exhibition space.
