|Mr. Rolf Ibach
president of RUD. IBACH SOHN
piano company says...
|"When six generations
ago my ancestor set up shop in 1794 to build pianos, Ludwig van Beethoven
had just finished his first piano sonata, composed for either harpsichord
or piano. Frederic Chopin wasn't even born yet, neither was Franz Liszt.
The piano as we know it today was largely still in the making. It was an
era of research and experiments in science, art and crafts. The spirit
of enlightenment prevailed Over the centuries to this very day, my family
has been collaborating with the finest composers and pianists of their
time in just this spirit in order to create the perfect sound of the piano.
Today we call it innovation, but the spirit prevails. Richard Wagner suggested certain changes in order to reach a sound suitable to his imagination, as did the composer and our friend Hans Werner Henze in recent years or the pianist Homero Francesch in order to archieve a sound and a touch adequate to our time and music.
Over three generations architects have implemented new impulses for the style and design of our cases. We are proud and honored to continue this art of Avant-garde piano-building with Richard Meier."
