Atlantic Music specializes in the import and distribution of hand-crafted, limited edition, new and pre-owned premium pianos from Europe’s most renowned manufacturers. They include Steingraeber, Feurich, Pleyel, Blüthner, Bechstein, and Bösendorfer. These pianos are the highest class of pianos and are among the finest pianos made in the world. They are also the oldest, most well respected piano manufacturers in the world, many of which were established in the early 1800’s.
The magnificent quality with which these hand-crafted instruments are manufactured in terms of both materials and workmanship set them in a class of their own and distinguish them from the mass-produced “production” pianos made by today’s larger factories. Europe is the birthplace of the piano which celebrated it’s 300th anniversary of invention in 2000 and these venerable piano companies pioneered the piano’s invention and development.
