Award-winning Hungarian pianist Gergely Bogányi long dreamed of playing a piano that had a more beautiful, harmonious, flowing sound, bridging the gap between the sound in his head and the sound he was hearing from his instrument. To fulfill his dream, he worked with a team of engineers and piano craftsmen for 10 years to create what he calls a “revolutionary” piano. The Bogányi piano has a beautiful futuristic design optimized to project sound into the auditorium. Many of its metal or wooden parts, including the soundboard, have been replaced with carbon fiber to make them less susceptible to environmental factors. It also uses a completely different agraffe system and action. Bogányi claims the piano has a more organic, clearer, and bolder sound than a concert grand. Currently, the piano is available only in limited numbers, but the company plans to begin production soon.
