The making of a Steinway concert grand

Note By Note: The Making Of Steinway L1037 is a film airing on PBS that follows the creation of a Steinway concert grand – L1037 – from forest floor to first performance.

From the factory floor in Queens to Steinway Hall in Manhattan, each piano’s journey is complex — spanning 12 months, 12,000 parts, 450 craftsmen, and countless hours of fine-tuned labor. Filmed in key Steinway locations — the factory, Steinway’s reserved “Bank,” and private auditions — Note By Note is a loving celebration of not only craftsmanship, but also a dying breed of person who is deeply connected to working by hand.
