88 Keys - The Making of a Steinway Piano
You save $15.00!
by Miles Chapin (au)
The Steinway piano is the most complicated piece of machinery made by hand in the world today. Now, Chapin takes you on a journey through the making of the world's greatest musical instrument, from the selection and aging of wood to the delicate voicing of the finished instrument. Meet the strong men who bend grand piano rims to their trademark curve, the "belly men" who fit the metal harp to the wooden frame, the carvers who shape the piano's legs and pedal lyre, and the many other craftsmen who have perfected their specialized contributions. Explains how Steinway achieved greatness by combining innovation and a love of quality with a philosophy of service and dedication to individual musicians that makes each piano a unique work of art. Beautifully illus. (1997)
