German Baby Grand Piano from the Galaxy II Piano Collection

Galaxy II's 1929 German Baby Grand is based on a Blüthner Model 150, built in 1929. This wonderful instrument blew us away, when we found it at a German piano maker. It's a beautiful 75 year old grand piano, featuring a warm vintage sound with a wonderful intimate tone. Numerous great composers, conductors, and performers have owned Blüthner pianos, among them Bartok, Debussy or Tchaikovsky. Blüthners have also been used in pop music, including the Beatles' album Let It Be, most notably in the hits 'Let It Be' and 'The Long and Winding Road'.

The German Baby Grand is alternatively available with two other pianos (Steinway and Vienna Grand) as GALAXY II Grand Piano Collection.

The Blüthner piano company has manufactured Europe's finest pianos in their factory in Leipzig, Germany since 1853. By 1885, the company was the largest European piano manufacturer. Numerous royals, composers, conductors, artists and performers have owned Blüthner pianos. They include Brahms, Bartok, Debussy, Tchaikovsky and Wagner.
