Baldassin & Schimmel Pianos  
In the early 1980's, Rick Baldassin became familiar with the Schimmel pianos while working as an independent piano technician. Preparing pianos for the dealer that carried Schimmel at the time, Rick saw first hand how well the Schimmel's were tuned, voiced, and regulated compared to other brands which that dealer carried, some of which were priced higher than Schimmel. The high quality of materials and workmanship, rich tone, and ease of tuning all made a lasting impression. Soon after the Baldassin's opened their retail store, Rick and Cindy explored the possibility of securing the Schimmel franchise.

"Meticulous attention is paid to detail..."

"Every Schimmel Piano that leaves the plant meets the highest standards of Mr. Schimmel, but more importantly, they meet the highest standards of our clients."

Knowing the Baldassin's reputation for quality and service, Schimmel appointed Baldassin Performance Pianos the Exclusive Authorized Dealer for Schimmel in Utah. Since that time, the relationship between the Schimmel's and Baldassin's has been strong. Recently, Schimmel wrote that the Baldassin's "possess an outstanding level of integrity and expertise for the piano." Through the Baldassin's efforts, Schimmel was named the Official Piano and Grand Prize of the 1999 Gina Bachauer International Young Artists Piano Competition. Schimmel proudly held this same honor in 1996 and 1997.
