148cm (4'11) baby grand piano in an elegant polished cabinet
Commissioned by the Bluthner Piano Company and built to their specification by Pearl River, the Irmler F148 baby grand piano is the smallest model in the Irmler range. At only 4'11 in length this makes a wonderful domestic choice or indeed for the smaller school hall or practice rooms. It is constructed from high quality European components and while assembled in China is finished off at the Bluthner factory in Germany where stringent quality control measures are put in place to ensure the piano is of the very finest quality. It has a distinctly European tone, warm and mellow with a singing treble and makes for a great comparison with the popular Yamaha GB1K.
A brief history of Irmler Pianos:
1818 - Johann Christian Gottlieb Irmler founded his company in the musical city of Leipzig. Within a few years his instruments gained great popularity facilitating the construction of a brand new factory including its own steam power station. This major investment underlined the growing demand for his instruments in these early years.
1842 - Johann Christian Gottlieb Irmler invented a new action for grand pianos, enabling much faster repetition than ever before and better control. For his revolutionary efforts he was honoured by the King of Saxony with the Great Golden Saxony Royal State Medal, the highest award of the state of Saxony.
1889 - The reputation of Irmler's grand pianos started to gain recognition from outside of the German Empire. Numerous instruments were exported, mainly to the thriving Russian empire and the Scandinavian kingdoms.
1900 - Irmler received many prestigious awards, such as the Great Golden and the Golden Medal of his Majesty the King of Saxony. He was appointed the official purveyor of pianos to the Court of his Royal Highness the Duke of Mecklemburg-Schwerin, and his Highness Duke of Anhalt.
1943 - Along with many other piano manufacturing firms, including today's parent company Blüthner, the factory was bombed and burned to the ground. The factory buildings on Leplay Street and the retail outlet on Turner Street were completely destroyed. Soon after the end of World War II the Irmler family decided to resume production, but under the Russian occupation it was very difficult the re-establish an environment suitable for piano manufacture. When Mr Irmler passed away the family escaped to West Germany and in 1953 the East German administration dismantled the company.
1999 - The Irmler Piano Company was re-established, based on the design and manufacturing philosophies of Johann Gottlieb Irmler.
2000's - Today, Irmler Piano GmbH manufactures affordable instruments that combine high quality with superb value for money and is thriving once again.
The Moontime Silent System was launched, combining digital and acoustic piano technologies making it possible to play an acoustic piano silently and listen through headphones.
