In 1857, the Forsyth brothers settled in Manchester to help Charles Hallé set up the Hallé orchestra, having learned their trade with their father - the factory manager for Messrs Broadwood in Golden Square, described by Beethoven as the “prince of piano makers”. After initially specialising only in Pianos, Forsyth soon diversified into supplying sheet music and all other instruments. Today, Forsyth is still run by the same family (4th and 5th generation) over 160 years later and can be found in the heart of Manchester.
