19世纪是欧洲钢琴制造业的黄金期,先后诞生了15000多个钢琴品牌,但延续至今的寥寥无几,而诞生于当时的Paul Werner钢琴至今仍在德国畅销不衰。

 

1816年, Zerbst皇家合唱团指挥家、Anhalt地区最高统领、德国贵族Carl Werner先生在Dresden收购了一家钢琴工厂作为家族主要产业,Paul Werner钢琴的传承历史正始于此。Carl Werner先生的次子Paul Werner对乐器制作兴趣非常浓厚,他先后在Leipzig、Kassel、Munich以及欧洲南部钢琴制造圣地Vienna学习造琴技艺。谦卑、刻苦与聪慧使博尔·威纳凭借高超的技艺得到了诸多造琴名师的高度青睐, Bosendorfer力邀他协助完成所有钢琴的出厂精调,但Paul Werner还是在1857年回到德国打理家族钢琴厂。他在欧洲钢琴制造界率先引入了铁板,使音色通透、稳定,并以严苛的态度对钢琴出厂前的每一道工序进行严格检查,保证钢琴的高品质。Paul Werner的后人Junior Werner还对立式钢琴的铁板进行了改善,大大提高了铁板的稳定性。这是一项伟大的成就,直至今日,这种立式钢琴铁板仍然被广泛的运用着。

 

优异的钢琴品质使Paul Werner生产的钢琴得到演奏者的高度认可,1880年,Paul Werner在Dresden市中心的Sophien街2号建立了办公室与钢琴展厅。当时著名作曲家Richard Wagner(理查德·瓦格纳), Rachmaninov(拉赫曼尼诺夫)等都住在Dresden,他们时常到Paul Werner的钢琴展厅中现场演奏。

 

1892年,Paul Werner钢琴由于其出色的品质成为当时的行业标杆,Paul Werner本人被授予“贵族钢琴匠师”称号(Herzoglich Anhaltischer Hofpiano fabrikant),意为“专为德国贵族制作钢琴的造琴大师”。Paul Werner将家族徽记印在了每一台钢琴的铁板上,寓意世代潜心造琴、家族生生不息。

 

历经6代传承,Werner公司在德国拥有稳定的销售网络和极佳的产品口碑,并在Aiterhofen建有钢琴生产与研究中心,占地面积约2万平方米。Werner家族的历代传承人始终坚持以严苛的工匠精神生产优质、稳定的手工钢琴,他们相信每一台琴中都蕴含着造琴师赋予钢琴的灵魂,而高超的弹奏者能够唤醒琴魂,发出曼妙之声。
