August Förster produce high quality performance pianos, synonymous with outstanding style and individuality. To the ear, they boast an even, warm, mellow tone throughout the scale, and to the eye, are designed with a shape and proportion that harmonises tradition and modernity.
Handcrafted in Löbau, Germany, by the Förster family for more than 160 years, these were the favoured instruments of composers including Prokofiev, Richard Strauss and Puccini. They remain amongst the most exclusive instruments produced and we are thrilled to be their exclusive Australian agents.
A rare import to Australia, this is an incredible opportunity to acquire a brand new, traditionally handcrafted European piano. Call us to book an audition of this fabulous instrument today.

Sergei Prokofiev, 1937:
“I must say that I am pleased as ever playing your – August Förster – grand piano. It is in points of euphony [melody] truly superior in both bass and descant. Its mechanism allows me to reach all dynamic layers of sound with ease. Also, its tuning keeps very well. I openly congratulate you, Mr. Förster, and would like to tell you that you have my highest respect.”
