The sounds does not breathe! The instruments needs more magic! We watch Stefan Knüpfer, master tuner of Steinway and Sons, fulfilling the requests of the world's best pianists. When Alfred Brendl, Lang Lang or Pierre-Laurent Aimard set out to play, every nuance must be perfect. Pianomania takes the audience on a humorous journey in the secret world of sounds as Knüpfer is not only a renown magician on the piano with the rare gift to transform words into sounds, he is also a divine storyteller and entertainer.
