Often called the “unseen artist,” the concert piano technician inhabits a world where differences as small as the thickness of a piece of paper can have mighty consequences in the performance of a piano recital. Before the pianist begins playing, the concert technician must prepare the way, making sure that each key plays properly, sounds in tune, and has the right kind of tone quality, in many cases performing this exacting work under intense time pressure. This is the first book to deal with the techniques and artistry specific to preparing pianos for concert use. It provides detailed practical advice for piano technicians on the fine points of tuning, regulating, and voicing for concerts, as well as on working with concert pianists, and also includes interviews and profiles of concert pianists and concert technicians, and anecdotes from the author’s career.
