PianoForte Chicago offers Grotrian upright pianos and grand pianos
Built by Hand in Braunschweig, Germany
All Grotrian grand pianos are completely built in Braunschweig, Germany– with most of the instrument made by hand!
According to the Grotrian family “to build pianos with less effort would mean that they would never reach the high quality and stability, nor would they sound so beautiful.”
