Personally I am curious how Boesendorfer will
go next year.I surmise there must be quite a few
parties interested in acquiring the same from
the Bawag.I wonder how much Bawag will ask for
it and how much they paid to Kimball in 2002.
Can I hear from anybody who is well versed in
that field or has an insight or knowledge about
it ?

I see this as a serious matter for the on-going future of one of the top-teir piano designs.

It would be very sad to see the ultimate demise of this great instrument, due to a takeover by anyone other than a highly responsible and technically competant firm.

hello I am new to this forum posting board. Yamaha made the highest bid so far to Bosendorfer and the parent Bawg Bank but it might go to the other companoies in Austria Broadman the reputed offers was in the range of 11 million Euro.
