Vienna Symphonic Library Released Synchron Pianos: Bösendorfer Upright

The beautiful Bösendorfer Grand Upright 130 includes the experience of nearly two centuries of grand piano making. Its pure and pristine piano sound was captured with all its beauty and character at Stage B of Synchron Stage Vienna.

The legendary pure and rich Bösendorfer sound is based on the Viennese tradition of piano making with its complex construction. Bösendorfer uses more than 80% naturally dried resonant spruce wood to build an instrument – more than any other manufacturer. When a note is played, the integrated spruce components become acoustically active, forming a complete resonating body similar in principle to a violin. Its precise mechanics offer optimum power transmission with maximum controllability. The carefully hand-spun bass strings – steel core strings with one or two layers of copper – also contribute to its warm and sonorous sound.
