  • This lovely handcrafted German piano had one owner, who purchased it new from Chris Finger Pianos in Niwot, CO. It was built by the Feurich Piano Company in what was East Germany at the time. The Communist government had given the rights to the Feurich name (dating well back into the 1800's) to the Bechstein Piano Company in East Berlin. It took a number of years after the fall of the Berlin Wall for Julius Feurich, the current (5th generation) owner of the Feurich Company, to re-acquire his family name for the company. Thus this is a Feurich design, built in the Feurich factory but using the Hoffman name. This piano has been lovingly cared for and lightly played. It is a wonderfully musical bargain!
"Last Sunday morning while seated at the Fandrich & Sons grand piano which you crafted for our church, I rendered one of the most sublime performances of Cesar Franck's Panis Angelicus in the history of the world! I was deeply moved in the midst of this beautiful musical prayer to realize that it was not just me making such a beautiful sound...every one of you who touched that fine instrument in its conception and fabrication had a hand in that particular piece of music last Sunday....You were not there to witness the hush and the grandeur of the moment....But I must say 'thank you' many times over for the pride and brilliance you put into your work."
