Blüthner, one of the world’s preeminent piano makers, has released its first line of digital pianos, called the e-Klavier, engineered and manufactured in Leipzig, Germany. (For company background, see the Blüthner listing in the “Brand and Company Profiles” for acoustic pianos.)

Blüthner says it has developed a unique approach to sampling and sound modeling, called Authentic Acoustic Behavior, that allows the e-Klavier to reproduce the effect of the aliquot (fourth) string of Blüthner’s acoustic pianos. This system also permits the reproduction of advanced harmonics, such as the coincidental partials produced when two notes are played simultaneously, and the sound the dampers make when lifting off the strings. The e-Klavier actions, sourced from Fatar, feature escapement, and wooden keys with “ivory feel” in some models. In the near future, users will be able to download new sounds to the e-Klaviers via the Internet at no charge, and store the sounds of turn-of-the-century Blüthner pianos and other Blüthner models of interest.

Blüthner also makes a hybrid-piano system, called “e-volution,” that can be installed in any of its acoustic upright or grand models. For more information, see the Blüthner listing in the Acoustic Pianos: Brand and Company Profiles section of this issue.
