According to this video, yes but it says these pianos are destined for the Chinese market and sold under another name.

Let's just hope these pianos are not being re-imported secretely and sold on the European or American market.

This is nothing new. If you think about it, it's what Steinway did with Boston, Yamaha do with their GC series, etc, and Brodmann was intended to be a Bosendorfer product at the initial stage of development.

A quarter of the price of a new Bechstein would mean a 6' grand selling for about UKP15,000. This is about the price of a chinese grand today.

They'll probably just sell them under the name Steinway or something.
