A feature-length independent documentary that follows the creation of a Steinway concert grand, #L1037- from forest floor to concert hall. "A beautiful, probing documentary about music and craftsmanship” says The San Francisco Chronicle. “A meditation on the making of pianos and the making of music, a process that is very much like falling in love… gorgeously composed and photographed… capable of inducing spiritual/physical rapture” writes Kenneth Turan of The Los Angeles Times.
