The history of the Perzina Piano began on July 1,
1871. On that day two brothers, Julius and Albert Perzina, opened their
shop in the small German town of Schwerin. They officially named the
company Gebrüder Perzina which means brothers Perzina. As business
increased, the Perzina factory was moved to a larger facility in the
German town Lenzen.
The Perzina piano soon became one of Germany’s most influential
and prestigious brands. Many of the best musicians and world leaders
purchased Perzina pianos. These included the Arch-Duke of Mecklenberg,
Duke of Oldenburg, Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands, and Hendrik of
Mecklenberg-Schwerin. Around 1900 the Perzina factory was the largest
piano factory in Northern Germany. Today in Germany and other European
countries, Perzina is a household known name.
Perzina pianos are recognized for their remarkably beautiful tone and
sound. Today’s Perzina piano is still one of the world’s
best pianos. The vertical models use the patented floating-soundboard,
floating-plate, and reverse (concave) soundboard crown design. These
patents and features are exclusive to Perzina manufactured vertical pianos.
Each Perzina vertical and grand features European regulation and intonation
(voicing) approved to the standards set by Hans Leferink. Mr. Leferink’s
technique provides a balance of color and an array of nuances throughout
the full scale of the piano. The sound is strong, full bodied, but not
over-weighted. The European voicing provides a clean, even mid-range,
and a singing treble. The action is weighted and balanced to express
the true emotion of the performer.
The Perzina factory and grounds in Lenzen Germany are now owned by European
businessman Ronald Bol, and the corporate headquarters are in Veenendaal,
Netherlands. Due to international demand for the product, a new factory
is being built under the supervision of Mr. Bol and the Gebr. Perzina
technical staff. All of the Perzina pianos continue to use the highest
manufacturing standards and the industry’s best components.
