Yamaha launch the new CF series grand pianos setting new standards for artists, conservatoires and concert halls, and being released at Musikmesse 2010.

Yamaha President Mitsuru Umemura yesterday (March 23rd) unveiled The CF Series concert grand pianos led by the much anticipated CFX.

These revolutionary new instruments have been over 19 years in development, and a once-in-a-generation occasion according to the President.

Yamaha state that the new CFX concert grand piano and The CF Series overall will come to be seen as one of their greatest achievements.

This emphasises that these truly exceptional instruments are the result of many thousands of hours of private testing and evaluations carried out in partnership with some of the most discerning and demanding concert pianists.

The CF Series pianos mark a significant milestone in Yamaha's celebrated 108-year history as an acclaimed world-class piano maker.

The evening also provided the assembled VIP guests a rare opportunity to meet many of the people involved in the development and design of the new range.

Yamaha President, Mitsuru Umemura comments The concept behind the series is Beauty & Power.

Beauty signifies the wide range of tonal colors and musical voices The CF Series are capable of, while Power refers to their unprecedented tonal projection.

These pianos offer artists outstanding expressiveness for truly musical performance, coupled with enough tonal presence to carry over the sound of a full symphony orchestraand in the largest of concert halls.

Yamaha are keen to stress that the CF Series is not simply a development of existing models.

They are totally new instruments that build on Yamaha's ambitions to exceed the expectations of players and audiences and set a new global standard for grand pianos.

In these instruments Yamaha have completely re-examined and re-evaluated every single aspect of the piano-making process and components involved therein.

This results in a wide range of startling improvements and advances that all combine to underpin the 'Beauty and Power' concept.

Each instrument is entirely hand-built by a small team comprising some of the world's most experienced and passionate craftsmen.

All wooden materials are individually seasoned and crafted to perfection and exude Yamaha's legendary attention to detail.

The design of the hammers has also been improved and each CF instrument is subject to many hours of detailed and intricate voicing.

The CF Series comprises the flagship 275 cm CFX model and two smaller grand pianos, the 212 cm CF6 and the 191cm CF4.

Both the CF4 and CF6 draw on Yamaha's exemplary conservatoire heritage and are sure to prove particularly popular with academic institutions where performance, durability and value are paramount.
