Carl Bechstein built his first piano in 1853 and soon earned the respect of great piano composers such as Debussy and Liszt and Bechstein Pianos fast became a standard to which all other European pianos attained to.
Within 10 years of its foundation the Bechstein Piano "machine" was employing 130 workers and producing 400 pianos per year. Production of the Bechstein piano range continued to flourish into the 20th century until two world wars crippled the factories. However, by selling shares to the American piano-makers "Baldwin", Bechstein piano production was able to continue again in 1945.
In the 1980s Bechstein regained control of the company by buying back its shares and moving the piano factory back to its original home in Berlin. Bechstein Pianos have since regained their reputation as being amongst the very finest pianos in the world.
