Julius Bluthner founded Bluthners Pianos in 1853, in Leipzig, Saxony. His endeavor to build pianos was started by himself and three other craftsman. A deeply religious man, he spoke the words that would shape his company for over 160 years “May God Prevail”.

Innovations and developments such as the Aliquot String; a fourth string that vibrated sympathetically that was tuned in unison as well as the cylindrical soundboard and angle cut hammers, created a unique voice and resonance for the Bluthner instrument.
