Julius Feurich established his firm in 1851 in Leipzig, Germany. One of Germany's most celebrated piano makers, Feurich enjoyed much success through the 19th and 20th Centuries. The firm was known for building very high quality, expensive pianos, many of which were exported out of Europe around the world. The firm also produced pianos under the name of W. Hoffmann. Feurich is one of the few 19th Century piano companies still building pianos today - a real testament to the quality that goes into a Feurich piano!
