THE PIANO SOLOIST AND COMPOSER BEN DAWSON ON THE P 284 MISTRAL

When I was asked if I would like to play a PETROF piano on my tour of the Czech and Slovak Republics, I immediately seized the opportunity. PETROF is a worldwide name. I’d known of the make over many years, but rarely had the chance actually to play on a PETROF. That’s why I was so happy now. Such a warm and rich tone, such clear reverberation! I’m looking forward to playing one again. Thank you!

ARGENTINE PIANIST ANTONIO FORMARO ABOUT THE P 159 BORA GRAND PIANO

Greetings to you. I’m Antonio Formaro from Argentina and just now I’m in Hradec Králové in the Czech Republic. Today I’ve been working with this instrument from the PETROF company’s workshop. I would say this is a comparatively small grand piano. The „Bora 159“ model, however, although reduced in length and equal in width in comparison with other instruments from PETROF’s workshop, is characterised by the rich, compact sound of the instrument’s middle range. In my opinion this is an unusual feature in pianos of this size and there are hardly any similar models available on the market. I think this is a splendid instrument for professionals living in flats or smaller houses, as well as for concerts in smaller concert halls.It is especially interesting that the sound in the middle range is very compact and its deeper part produces tones of such depth as to make you think you’re playing on a larger instrument. The same applies to the upper range, which offers enough distinctiveness for the playing of every kind of tone. For this reason I regard it as an excellent and unique instrument of its type.

CZECH PIANIST RUDOLF FIRKUŠNÝ ON PETROF INSTRUMENTS.

It was an experience to play on a Petrof instrument, whose sound and action let the player produce the slightest nuance of tone he may desire

THE PIANIST JANA CHAUDHURI APPRECIATES THE ROMANTIC TONE OF PETROF PIANOS

I recently had the honour of playing with my respected colleague Igor Ardashev in the Beijing National Polly Theatre and at the Czech Embassy in Beijing. We played on the ANT.PETROF 275, a beautiful new concert grand, and a PETROF P210 Pasat.I was personally most impressed with the PETROF grand’s romantic tone. These pianos really have managed to maintain their long historical inheritance. Their reputation, sound, quality and precise design are renowned in my part of the world and I can warmly recommend them to anyone, pianists and audiences alike.

THE PIANIST HANA SLADKÁ AND HER FAMILY PRAISE THE P 131

Dear Mrs Petrofová
I should like to thank you for receiving our whole family in such a kind and professional way, and for giving us of your time in your beautiful piano salon. Your PETROF P 131 upright is a truly splendid instrument. The month we have spent playing on it has been a pleasure not just for me and my husband, but for everyone who has had the chance to listen. The more I play it, the more I am delighted that we chose it. The sound is superb, absolutely crystal clear. I wish you every success and indeed the very best, not just you personally but your whole family and of course the PETROF company. Please accept my best wishes, and I look forward to working with you again.

THE PIANIST LUKÁŠ HRUBEŠ ON THE P 125 F UPRIGHT.

Usually, when a pianist comes across an upright, he sees it as a temporary instrument for practising before playing a grand, or as a convenient option for spaces where a classical grand won’t fit. Yet I would say that this P 125 F, which I’ve had the chance to try out for myself, effectively eliminates any difference the pianist may perceive between playing a grand piano, and playing an ordinary upright merely for practice purposes. Its action really makes you feel as if you were playing a grand, without in any way losing its typical, high-quality PETROF sound. Now of course one can’t contend that an upright should replace a grand on the concert platform, but even so I’m sure that this instrument would work perfectly on stages where a grand wouldn’t fit, or as a professional concert instrument for pianists to get ready in the vestibule, or else as a musical instrument for teaching piano-playing in smaller spaces.

THE ARMENIAN PIANIST ARA ABOUT the PETROF UPRIGHT PIANO
When I first stumbled upon my upright Petrof, two things immediately stood out to me. The amazing depth of the bass notes which are almost always attributed to the best of grand pianos, as well as the beautiful, rich, romantic tone it exhibited. Warmth and sensitivity are two very important characteristics a piano must have for me. Without the ability to express emotion, a piano is worthless to me. Petrof allows me to translate these very emotions into music and therefore express my soul in a language others can hear. Without this fine instrument, my soul is unheard. Thank you Petrof for maintaining your experienced craftsmanship and creating this undeniably beautiful work of art. You give musicians a voice they could only dream of having.

David Friesen about the PETROF Grand piano

Though I am primarily a Jazz bassist, I also compose and perform on piano. I own a wonderful PETROF Grand Piano. What sets my PETROF Grand Piano apart from other great pianos I have played, is the warmth of sound and great action response to my touch. I love the Detoa action! There is a wonderful togetherness of sound and touch that evolves in the spirit of the music when I play my PETROF Grand Piano.

Emilio Solla, pianist, music inventor, New York

I have hadclassical training in the piano in Buenos Aires for years, and then moved to Impovised and jazz related music. During all these years I believe I have developer a personal touch and sound, and that’s the main thing I look for in a piano: to be able to get my own sound, Instead of performing with the piano’s own sound. So my sound checks are not a show of notes, but sometimes I merely play one note, or one chord, to know what I am dealing with. In this occasion, that was enough to know everything was going to b ethere. I had no idea that Petrof’s big pianos planos would have such a warm, deep sound. I had a great time performing, and could find in the piano everything I needed, from crystal, Debussyan oriented passages to the strong attact of more traditional tango bass notes.

Stanislav Gallin, the Czech pianist, about the P 194 Storm

A PETROF piano is like a your best friend. We grew up together and have had a lot of fun. Occasionally he’s endured some angry blows, but then again he’s responded to the most gentle of touches. I’ve always been able to depend on him. Thank you!

Stanislav Gallin, 2017

Czech pianist Jana Goliášová about the P 210 Pasat

Jan Simon, czech pianist about PETROF Pianos

I’d like to thank you for the presentation of the new instruments. Overall, I must say that the user-friendliness of the concert grand has increased considerably, be it the Antonín Petrof series or the "standard" Mistral models. Personally I’d have had little hesitation in choosing a Mistral 626 751: for me it is a most elaborately constructed piano with a very homogeneous sound across the register. Many congratulations!

Jan Simon, 2016

Nikos Tasopoulos about the PETROF Grand Piano

My opinion concerning Petrof pianos:

Some attitudes devote piano to two kinds: Those whose sound can not "move back" to "promote" the masterpiece: the "objectively good" piano. And those whose sound can "move back", of course, in a sophisticated way, to let the masterpiece "enter our heart" more easily.

I think Petrof pianos belong to the second category, and I experience this when I perform to mine.  The feelings are so cute, and inspiring!

Zuzana Filipová about the PETROF Grand Piano
