Born in Bayern, Germany on July 8, 1828, Albert Weber learned to play piano from the age of five and composed music from the age of eight. He was influenced by
leading musicians of the classical era including canonical pianists Beethoven and Mozart.
At a young age of 24, he opened his own piano shop under his name and began to study resonance and depth of sound. Through his studies, he was able to innovate parts by making earnest improvements of the felt, hammer, and steel frame. Weber pianos are produced by craftsmen who accept nothing less than the absolute best. The rigorous standards that Albert Weber adopted in 1852 to create the first grand piano to withstand the demands of the concert platform set the benchmark for piano making in his day. Since that time Weber pianos have been acknowledged for being at the forefront of piano technology. Using only the finest materials and components, with a commitment to the highest levels of craftsmanship, Weber pianos have become a byword for quality and reliability. The amazing tonal quality of the first Weber piano is carried through to this day by the continued technological innovations of the dedicated craftsmen at Weber.
