Note by Note: The Making of Steinway L1037 (2007) is a documentary directed by Ben Niles about the process involved in handcrafting a Steinway concert grand piano, that also includes interviews with musicians Harry Connick Jr., Hank JonesHélène Grimaud, Pierre-Laurent Aimard, and Lang Lang.

Life Lesson:

There is joy in working with your hands.

Movie Scene:

Prenta Ljucovic (Case Maker): “I enjoyed building the piano. If I don’t work, if I don’t work physically, then I get nervous. I want to work physically. I want to — I like to work hard, put it this way.”

Eddy Salvodon (Plate Fitter): “When you work with your hands, you know what to do, you know what you’re touching. Any mistake, any problem, you know. You touch with your hand, you know what the problem is.”
