C. Bechstein was established in 1853 by Carl Bechstein in Berlin, Germany. It was popular before WWII but due to growing anti-German sentiments, German names and music were boycott and changed ownership several times before it was finally revived by a German entrepreneur /banker from the 1980s. Bechstein pianos have always been regarded highly and have re-emerged as one of the finest pianos built.
