Pierre's Fine Pianos represents some of the world's most renowned and exclusive brands, including Fazioli, the Bugatti of pianos. The one-and-only Fazioli Aria just arrive in our showroom after a two-year building process. This is the only one available in the world.


No piano has ever gone where Aria resides: the summit of innovation and piano engineering supreme. Though there is something evocative of a mid-century modernism about the elegant and simple angularity of Aria’s key features and shapes. The built-in triangular motif manifests in the upsweep of the chrome body, the inverted pyramid inserts of the pedestal and the parting of go the keyboard sides. As though encoded with some secret meaning the shapes and details speak with one another of the new, aerodynamic musical being that is Aria.

Dimensions:

Length 300cm (9.84ft) x Width 180.6cm (5.92ft) x Height 102.2cm (3.35ft)

The massive chrome pedestal has inverted inlay triangles on every side and also conceals pedal mechanism – thus unifying and simplifying the overall visual statement. The black and chrome combination punctuated by triangle-derived motifs evoked Art Deco, placing this marvelously futuristic piano in the realm of the Chrysler Building of the future, or a skyscraper yet to be built.



The lid is held by a chrome stick and the ebony music stand is one with the piano creating unity of purpose and simplicity of a design statement.


The squared off tail and side of the top of the piano create almost a triangle once the lid is open – just like a sail of a boat outlined against the sun. The grand proportions of the length to the height of the piano create an illusion of ‘sailing’ over the air – with the chrome details serving both as a light reflectors and the texture counterpoint to the sleek ebony of the upper body of the piano.

The poetry of air and earth, of metal and wood are what Rockefeller must have envisioned when designing the iconic New York center. And so Aria is sure to inspire many a great creative ideas, from musical compositions to the entire building and sets that will be fortunate to call themselves home to this truly magnificent creation.

 

Shapes and colours blend into one another to form a single, dynamic whole that recalls the design of a wave, the silhouette of a fish and the flight of a bird. This instrument lives in the air, together with the sound it produces. Its asymmetrical shape is striking and distinguishes every angle, each different from the last, sparking a playful exploration of “tidy disorder”. The piano with its single support creates sustained, dilated acoustics which extend beyond the traditional duration. The low notes reach an unprecedented depth and fullness thanks to the conformation of the basement. With Aria, sound takes flight.
