Friedrich Grotrian (1803-1860) was the founder of the Grotrian family's piano building tradition since 6 generations until up to this day. In 1835 Friedrich Grotrian purchased the patrician house of a medieval mayor on Bohlweg 48, home for the family, central meeting point for their guests and birthplace of a steadily growing figure of excellent instruments.
First sqare piano built in 1835 and marking the beginning of the company as stated by 3 supreme court decisions in 1926.
Many more than 30 emperors, royalties, duchies and nobles house bestowed the Grotrians to their cuppliers. Their weapons and emblems are an expression of highest reputation. Wilhelm Grotrian (1843-1917), Son and successor of Friedrich led the company to further blossoms. When he introduced his sons into the business he successfully adviced them "Boy's build good pianos, and the rest will take care of itself."

Grotrian - this name is also a synonym for development and patents wich not only advanced the quality of our own products but pushed the construction of pianos in general considerably. For example the homogeneous soundboard, the legendary upright model 120, the first precise scale design, the even today used and imitated star-shaped back construction and many more.
Grotrians really realized the dream of a couple of artists by combining 2 Grands under one special lid and connected by a soundboard bridge reflects really an so far absolutely unknown sound event. Of course both grands can also be used as solo instrument.
