The most thoroughly handcrafted musical instruments in the world, Steinway pianos are as unique and full of personality as the world-class musicians who play them. However, their makers are a dying breed: skilled cabinetmakers, gifted tuners, experienced wood workers and hand-crafters. This program follows the creation of a Steinway concert grand, #L1037 -- from the Alaska forest to the concert hall. It explores the relationship between musician and instrument, chronicles the manufacturing process and illustrates what makes each piano unique in this age of mass production. The journey spanS 12 months, 12,000 parts, 450 craftsmen and countless hours of fine-tuned labor.
