In 1830, Friedrich Grotrian, the founder of Grotrian Piano Company, left Germany to establish a music business in Moscow. The town prospered and attracted many musicians like Clara Schumann, Franz Liszt and Anton Rubinstein. In 1835, Friedrich Grotrian and Heinrich Steinweg began Grotrian Pianos in Germany.
Heinrich immigrated to the United States in 1851, changed his name to Henry Steinway, and established the firm Steinway & Sons in 1853. Legendary for its distinctive sound, the Grotrian brand was known for being the only piano that the “Queen of Pianists” Clara Schumann would play at the peak of her peerless career. Grotrian pianos have graced the homes of royalty across three centuries.
