Arguably the best piano in the world …

Fazioli pianos have become rightly renowned for the calibre of their sound, their workmanship and their technology. They are rare indeed but Nur Lounge at Fairmont Baku, Flame Towers features one of their special models – the M Liminal, designed by NYT Line and Philippe Gendre.

Inspired by the sea, (very appropriate given Baku is located on the world’s largest inland sea – the Caspian Sea), the shape of the side evokes a wave whilst the black/silver colour, gives an impression of a dolphin. The red of the soundboard and black of the cast iron frame filters through the transparency of the plexiglass music stand.

Often played by the very best classical pianists and contemporary artists, guests at Fairmont Baku, Flame Towers may enjoy the custom sound as they visit Nur Lounge for afternoon tea or a cocktail or two in the evening.
