The Brodmann Piano Story
Joseph Brodmann was born in 1763 in Deuna in Eichsfeld, Prussia (known today as Sachsen-Anhalt, Germany). As a young man, he came to Vienna and became the apprentice of the well-known piano builder Frederick Hoffmann. His hard work, attention to detail and prominent ingenuity drove Joseph Brodmann to become one of the most sought-after piano builders in the World. At the height of his fame, such iconic names as Ludwig v. Beethoven and Carl Maria von Weber purchased and endorsed his handcrafted pianos.
Brodmann's most famous pupil began working for him at age 19. There he finished his apprenticeship under Brodmann’s expert tutelage and went on to build a number of Brodmann pianos in the Brodmann factory. As time went on, Brodmann and his “ingenuous pupil” became very close – until, in 1828, Joseph Brodmann retired and left his business – and his designs with his star pupil: Ignaz Bosendorfer. Taking everything he had learned from Brodmann, Bosendorfer went on to build the first Bosendorfer pianos in the Brodmann factory and then – to take his own pianos to international fame.
