I commissioned my Sauter Delta in 2013 after having visited the factory in Spaichingen, and having had a solo tour around the factory (it coincided with the Carnaval Feiertage, but I was given the opportunity nonetheless to spend an entire afternoon trying out the instruments, and next day my partner and I got a tour through the factory floor, and we met with Ulrich Sauter). It took a while before the instrument was built, and when it finally arrived it was of course totally 'virgin' -- no-one apart from the Sauter technicians have touched it. This instrument perhaps still being the only Sauter grand in the UK, I keep it very secure and allow only selective people to play it. Anyway, the instrument is a marvel in tonal beauty. Just listening to single notes is already an absolute pleasure. My technicians were impressed by the quality of every aspect of it. So, a great thank you for Sauter to have produced such a beautiful instrument.

And with that I wish the Sauter company a very well deserved and happy 200th anniversary!

In this late sonata by Beethoven he pays homage to
J.S.Bach by including a fugue in the last movement.

I was blessed to have bought a Sauter Delta 185 in 2011. My technician who worked mainly on Steinway was as yours, was impressed with the quality and finesse of the manufacturing. I enjoyed this piano for almost a year when I had the opportunity( or the misfortune?) to visit the Sauter Factory in Spaichingen and saw the Omega 220 which was a marvel to play. Thereafter I bought a Sauter Omega 220 to replace my Sautrr Delta 185. What a crazy thing I did?. No, It has been 6 years since I owned the Omega 220 and I enjoyed it every day. Again my technician who is a re-builder of old pianos ( Steinway and others) has tuned it every 4 months since, and told me each time he came to work on it that it made his day when he was with it. He also stated that between the Steinway B ( New York or Hamburg) and the Omega 220, he will take the latter in a heartbeat. Having read that Mr Ulrich Sauter is already 66 year old and semiretired, and knowing that Mr Hott whom I have met with in 2011 is also not much younger, there is the question of succession and future of Sauter.Piano. I can only hope that it will continue the same tradition like at August Forster, Steingraeber & Soehne, Pfeiffer, and to some extent Grotrian-Steinweg (which is already partly foreign owned). Just a thought, as I myself is getting older.

I would love to visit Spaichingen and try different pianos.But who
knows I could come home and end up getting an Omega although
I do not think we have the funds for that, and I do not need a grand
anymore.However going there who knows what may happen ?
Sometimes my husband and I talk about going and then going to Salzburg for our next vacation.So who knows what may happen.
I am glad that you Vuong and Frankni found your dream pianos.

The Sauter Concert Grand 275 has undergone numerous developments to a achieve the level it has reached.It has
a tone that is transparent ,exceptional in its purity
yet brilliant in power.
Here are 3 more examples of 2 Sauter upright models
(sound clips)and a performance of Shostakovitch's Concertino for
2 grand pianos(the Concert Grand)

A beginner playing a Sauter of course won’t yet know how to bring out the Sauter’s Full dynamic range like an experienced player, but playing the Sauter will make it much easier for that same beginner to learn to play at all tempos from ppp to fff. Practicing on a fine piano is a pleasure rather than a chore.

Congratulations! 🎈🎉🎊. Did you Secret Santa yourself this year? You must have been very very good this year to get a Sauter 😁.

LOL. I think a top quality piano in the hands of a beginner will sound much better than a violin or a guitar, or just about any other instrument, in the hands of a beginner. Of course, better players will sound better on better pianos. Every time my teacher plays one of my pieces on her Steinway, it’s like a magic trick to me. Still, beginners can learn to produce a better sound. I think you mean dynamics and not tempos, though.

Actually I did mean tempos. It’s much easier to do a quick trills or fast arpeggios on a buttery smooth action.
