Summary
This documentary follows the creation of a Steinway concert grand, #L1037 -- from forest floor to concert hall. It explores the relationship between musician and instrument, chronicles the manufacturing process, and illutrates what makes each Steinway unique in this age of mass production. From the factory floor in Queens, NY to Steinway Hall in Manhattan, each piano's journey is complex -- spannnig 12 months, 12,000 parts, 450 craftsmen, and countless hours of fine-tuned labor. This film is a loving celebration of not just craftsmanship, but of a dying breed of person who is deeply connected to working by hand. In the end, this is an ode to the most unexpected, and perhaps, ironic, of unsung heroes. It reminds us how extraordinary the dialogue can be between an artist and an instrument -- crafted out of human hands but borne of the materials of nature
