A Great Documentary


This morning I watched a wonderful documentary that I wanted to share with all of you. Note by Note: The Making of Steinway L1037 follows this single concert grand from the earliest stages of shaping the frame to the final tuning. Along the way, master pianists from all genres discuss how each instrument has a personality of its own. I thought the film beautifully explained the distinction between instruments in a manner that a non-musician could understand and respect. By the end of the documentary, you will be reminded of the craftsmanship that is so highly prized in the Steinway and appreciate anew the personal attention that is given each instrument making each one unique and one of the finest instruments available.
