November 1853 One of the best known piano makers of that time was Breitkopf & Hartel, still known today as a prominent music publisher. These were strong reasons for Julius Blüthner to start his piano making in Leipzig after having spent several years wandering from one piano maker to another to improve on his knowledge of the craft. In November 1853 he began with three men and his instruments found immediate acclaim among the musical bourgeoisie. Julius Blüthner founded 1853 in Leipzig, the Blüthner name has an enviable reputation for over 140 years and in the opinion of many world famous artists and musical connoisseurs has reached the pinnacle of perfection. It was also essential to furnish instruments to the Royal Courts of many European countries, among which were the German Kaiser, Queen Victoria, the Russian Tsar, the Danish King, the Turkish Sultan and of course the King of Saxony. Blüthner pianos are appreciated particularly for their warm, rich tone and superior craftsmanship, which has been confirmed time and again by professional and international opinion. Their reputation is built upon a long tradition of careful manufacturing and particular attention to soundboard design.
