Introducing Stefan Knüpfer, 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 humour and his keen musical ear, Knüpfer helps such world-renowned musicians such as Lang Lang, Alfred Brendel, Rudolf Buchbinder and Pierre-Laurent Aimard achieve the tone, pitch and clarity they desire from their piano.
No matter how rigorous the schedule or ridiculous the request, Knüpfer does whatever he can to facilitate the desires of his clients, achieving optimal results with minimal fuss. Pianomania provides a fascinating insight into a largely unseen world-a peek behind the velvet curtains of the world's best concert halls, where our tour guide is the charming, unpretentious and vastly talented Stefan Knüpfer.
