For Discerning Pianists. 

In Stock!  The medium-sized grand piano of our Schimmel Trilogy meets the high expectations of pianists in a special way. Rigorous construction ideas come together with the most frequently played grand piano size as working tool for pianists. The instrument shouldn‘t be too big, because often space is limited. But it has to be large enough to offer pianists tonal richness and sonority. The precise transfer parts of the action and large parts of the sound system of our full size concert grand into the C 189 therefore makes this model an ideal “tool” for demanding pianists.

Piano Award Pianiste Schimmel C189

   From "Pianiste" October 2004 Issue

   Schimmel grand piano model which distinguishes itself through its brilliant tone. The perfect action permits a consummate tonal control ranging from an easily mastered pianissimo to the magnificent profound bass registers. This is a grand piano which is suitable for all styles of music and can be attuned to a multitude of situations thanks to its excellent tonal vibrancy.” – Mathieu Papadiamandis

Background

The revered piano makers produced three grand pianos within the Schimmel Classic series. The Schimmel Classic C189 is the middle child: a full six-foot grand piano handmade in Braunschweig, Germany. What marks this particular piano out – the Schimmel Classic C169 Belle Epoque Grand Piano – is the styling.

The standard C189 is a refined affair: the sleek lines and gentle curves we expect from Schimmel. The C189 Belle Epoque is something different.

While the Classic series harks back to the earliest days of Schimmel piano making, the Schimmel Classic C169 Belle Epoque Grand Piano is designed to reflect the peak period of French and European culture: the late-19th and early-20th centuries. A time marked by cultural innovations, Bohemian styles, and prolific musical talent. 


Specifications

Aesthetically, the Schimmel Classic C169 Belle Epoque Grand Piano is substantially more detailed than its twin, the C169 traditional. The legs brim with grooves while the music desk is a dance of inlays – it's a symphony in wood. 

Yet, while it's visually distinct, you'll experience the same incredible instrument beneath the surface. The action, for example, is agile and responsive, suitable to musicians of all stripes. Built by Renner to Schimmel's precise specifications, the instrument has a notably bright tone for which Schimmel is renowned. In fact, the internal sound system replicates the full-size concert grands in the mid and treble areas to increase dynamic range.

The soundboard is Bavarian AA tapered Solid Spruce, and the hammers are double-felted with a Beech core. 


History

With the classic series, the concept was to pay homage to the company's piano-making traditions. The resulting piano is as elegant to touch as it is fulfilling to play. And the Schimmel Classic C169 Belle Epoque Grand Piano could have been among the very first pianos Wilhelm Schimmel ever constructed in the 1880s in terms of look, style, and feel.
