The Vienna Symphonic Library has released German Upright 1904, a sound library featuring a vintage Bechstein upright piano. This is what they have to say about it...
This C. Bechstein upright piano was built in Berlin Kreuzberg in the early 20th century. Its distinctive vintage character, owing to its generous proportion of resonating wood, was captured with a multi-microphone setup at Synchron Stage Vienna's Stage B.
The upright's very smooth action allows the finest gradations from pianissimo to fortissimo. In the main playing range its sound is more reminiscent of a small concert grand than of an upright piano. With its clear and accurate tonal development it conveys the intimate atmosphere of a small concert hall. The instrument's mid range is very pronounced and focused, while its ageless character clearly asserts itself in all registers.
