The storied tradition of the piano, an instrument with a long history going back to the 1700s, lives on today in three superb pianos. Casio exhaustively researched and analysed the tonal characteristics of these three full concert grand pianos, made in Berlin, Hamburg, and Vienna. We drew upon the full range of our digital technologies to express the tone colour of these grand pianos in the newly developed AiR Grand Sound Source.
It is now possible to enjoy to the fullest the magnificent sound of these historic pianos, beloved by Liszt, Debussy, and other musical giants, in a single digital piano.
Berlin Grand Sound Developed in Collaboration with C. Bechstein
When speaking of the C. Bechstein piano, Claude Debussy declared, “Piano music should only be written for the Bechstein.” This history of C. Bechstein pianos begins with the company’s founding by Carl Bechstein in Berlin in 1853. Now, Casio has joined in collaboration with this renowned piano maker to develop the “Berlin Grand” tone, a balanced, elegant sound with a clearly defined shape.
To create its exquisite clarity of tone and vibrancy, we analysed the tone colour of the ultimate C. Bechstein masterpiece, the D282. The resulting sound, which meets with the approval of even C. Bechstein master piano maker Werner Albrecht, has been incorporated into the Celviano AP-700 as “Berlin Grand.”
The sound produced by an acoustic piano is not only the sound associated with the individual keys that are struck. Other strings with frequencies closely associated with those producing the sounds will resonate as well, adding to the overall sound and giving the music a uniquely rich resonance.
The new AiR sound source reproduces this resonance naturally through the use of a stereo resonance simulator for all 88 keys. The resonance created from using the damper pedal is also reproduced naturally across all 88 keys. A continuously variable damper system reproduces even the subtle changes in reverberation that occur in response to delicate pressure changes applied to the damper pedal.
The resonance system allows players to perform with an unprecedented amount of expressive detail.
