SAUTER started building pianos nearly 200 years ago. Johann Grimm, the founder of the company, learned the trade of piano making from Johann Andreas Streicher in Vienna, who built Beethoven´s instruments. This is how the founder of SAUTER early became acquainted with the high requirements of the famous composer. After successful completion of his apprenticeship, he started building square pianos himself.
The art of building such high-standard pianos grew into a family tradition, with new improvements and refinements evolving into an excellent culture of sound. Joyfulness in innovation has become an inherent part of our philosophy. SAUTER placed the emphasis on developing the double repetition action of grand pianos and implementing high standard pianos of master quality. The exclusive range of “Sauter – designed by Peter Maly” earmarked a milestone especially created for modern living concepts.
Today’s manufacturing philosophy pitches the note at SAUTER. All parts conferring the spirit to the piano are crafted manually. Machines do not govern here, expert hands are at work instead. The wood is sweet with the sound beating the time. This is how value-abiding pianos and grand pianos originate, all of which can be seen and felt.
