Since 1853, Blüthner pianos have been exclusively manufactured in Leipzig, Germany. To this day, the Blüthner family of craftsman and entrepreneurs continues to head the Blüthner firm and personally oversees the production of each piano bearing their name. They carry on the legacy of the founder, Julius Blüthner, to build the best pianos in the world. The highest standards of precision and craftsmanship have been achieved here for over 150 years. Today, this standard is certified on every individual soundboard by the signatures of the Blüthner family owners.
Bluthner Pianos London, also known as the Bluthner Piano Centre London, recently relocated their showrooms and offices within London’s West End, from their previous showroom at Davies Street near Berkeley Square to 10 Portman Square, where the front entrance has an impressive location on Baker Street. This is a 5 minute walk from Selfridges on Oxford Street.
The showrooms are brand new with a modern, architectural feel. There are 2 levels of showrooms and additional practice and recording rooms in the basement with air-conditioning throughout. All designed and managed by Peter Corney CEO of Bluthner Pianos London. The showroom looks like a million dollars, although I believe there was a little more spent on the project.
G&R Removals are Bluthner Pianos London sole carriers for UK and Ireland and we were delighted to be contracted with the removal of all pianos and accessories; office furniture, files and sundries. There were over 40 pianos to remove ranging from Bluthner Upright Pianos through to Bluthner Concert Grand Pianos and the impressive, if slightly eccentric, PH Piano range – What you see is what you hear. The sound is Blüthner quality, brilliant and crystal clear like the concept of the design itself. The PH Grand Piano was designed in 1931 by Poul Henningsen. It still belongs to the future. It brings style and beauty to any surrounding and interior project. Be inspired by German quality and a Scandinavian design icon
We initially were asked to carry out a direct move to the new headquarters over 2 days, however delays in the completion of the new building at fairly late notice changed plans for us, and for Bluthner Pianos.
All pianos had to be removed to our warehouse for temporary storage, we created a temporary showroom and tuning room within our warehouse and set-up a temporary office facility within our offices for team at Bluthner Pianos London. It was all fairly last minute, but it worked well and we enjoyed the company.
The impressive new showrooms are now open for business and already have attracted a good deal of local new business and passing customers, perhaps en-route to Selfridges in Oxford Street? The phone number and web contact remains the same.

Supréme Edition – Queen Victoria
During the Victorian Age of the 19th century, Blüthner was purveyor to the Royal Court of Queen Victoria. The English Society in this time adored the style of the Neo – Renaissance, which expressed the wealth and the feeling of belonging to the most important nation in the world in a most convincing way. Queen Victoria and her princely husband Albert defined that period which was later named after them.
This instrument is designed in the style of this time, executed in precious rosewood, enhanced with hand carved ornaments and applications, with powerfully styled legs and a finely etched music desk, and perfectly conveys the philosophy of that period. The styling of this instrument rightfully bears the name Queen Victoria.
The Supréme Edition – Queen Victoria is available in the Model 1, Model 2 and Model 4 grand piano lengths by special order.
