Description

Germany has a great tradition of piano making. We go to the C Bechstein piano factory, which has been making instruments since 1853. Craftsmen have passed the traditions of piano making down from generation to generation. Bechstein only takes on three new apprentices a year. One of the latest recruits is Markus Heinze. This programme follows his development as he hones the skills needed to build some of the best pianos in the world.

Part of a 6 x 25-minute documentary series produced for the BBC. These films can be bought individually or as a series.
