It’s all about the sound: German piano-makers at the C. Bechstein production site

On 16 April 2014, C. Bechstein Pianofortefabrik welcomed selected piano-makers and concert technicians to a training session entitled "It’s all about the sound". The organisers, "Bund Deutscher Klavierbauer e.V." business association, put on similar events every year, offering professionals a rare opportunity to improve their skills under expert instructions.

The selected professionals seized with enthusiasm this occasion to receive training at the production site of the famous C. Bechstein concert grand pianos. The topics on the agenda included action regulating, installation of a mute, and voicing — a delicate task that requires very special skills.
 
Informal talks and a guided tour of the Seifhennersdorf site gave the participants plentiful opportunities to put their questions to the Bechstein production and after-sales specialists. The invited piano-makers and concert technicians were particularly impressed not only by the outstanding quality standards at the C. Bechstein production site, but also by the high vertical range of manufacture — from pieces of wood to a playable concert grand piano.
