Pianomania PAL Video
Pianomania follows the day-to-day life of Stefan Knipfer, a softly-spoken, bespectacled piano tuner for Steinway and Sons who just might be the most gifted musical talent in the world... even though he's not a musician. Armed with his tool kit, his wry sense of humor and his keen musical ear, Knipfer helps musicians such as Lang Lang, Alfred Brendel, Rudolf Buchbinder and Pierre-Laurent Aimard achieve the sort of tone, pitch and clarity they desire from their piano. No matter how rigorous the schedule or ridiculous the request, Knipfer does whatever he can to facilitate the desires of his clients, achieving optimal results with minimal fuss. Pianomania provides fascinating insight into a largely unseen world; a peak behind the velvet curtain of the world's best concert halls, where our tour guide, Knipfer, is charming, unpretentious and vastly talented.
