The Festival Fazioli We’ve hired a Fazioli F228 grand piano for every Festival since 2014. It’s one of the ways we try to give our artists and audience the best possible experience. Born into a family of Italian furniture makers, Paolo Fazioli was obsessed with the piano from an early age. In 1979 he set up his piano business, developing and creating individually hand-crafted pianos to his own designs. A small, specialist firm - producing fewer than 150 hand-made instruments of outstanding quality a year - Fazioli makes the instrument of choice for a growing number of leading pianists and concert halls.
Lucy Parham, Jason Rebello, Sebastian Wybrew and Katya Apekisheva all played the Fazioli this year.
Our Fazioli is provided by Jaques Samuel, one of the leading suppliers of concert quality pianos. We are grateful to them for supporting the Festival: www.fazioli.com/ www.jspianos.com
