A blend of tradition and modernity

The P131R is a tribute to the painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir who used this emblematic piano by Pleyel as the model for “Woman at the piano” painted in 1876.  This instrument retains the classical aesthetics of the mythical Pleyel P131 upright piano of the time but with a resolutely modern satin black finish. This piano embodies the best of traditional craftsmanship while benefitting from all the musical attributes of a contemporary Pleyel. The accuracy of its touch combined with the Pleyel action offers pianists of all abilities a wide range of tones and nuances.
