The Carl Bechstein Foundation is committed to promoting the musical talents of children and young people. The aim is to enable as much – underprivileged – youth as possible to learn the piano.
Children who play an instrument develop their personalities better, stand in good stead for life, improve their IQs and are stronger in today’s often cold and materialistic world.
The Carl Bechstein Foundation delivers pianos to schools in Germany free of charge, awards various prizes and scholarships to promote young talents and intends to organise a competition.
The non-profit Carl Bechstein Foundation was founded in December 2012. The foundation was named after Carl Bechstein (1853–1900), the piano-maker, company founder and patron of many musicians.
