Germany / Austria 2009, 93 minutes
Dir. Robert Cibis, Lilian Franck
In German, English with English subtitles
Genres: Documentary, Music / Classical Music


Aroview: Something of an unofficial sequel to the Steinway documentary NOTE BY NOTE, this fascinating insight gives us a close-up look at the difficult art of tuning the world famous pianos for their equally world famous users - Lang Lang, Alfred Brendel, Rudolf Buchbinder, Till Fellner, and Pierre-Laurent Aimard, to name a few.

The true artist of the documentary, however, is Steinway & Sons tuner Stefan Knupfer, whose steady, patient hand is required to calibrate the grand piano specifically for each classical pianist in search of pitch-perfection.
