Pianos made in Brunswick

Almost half of all pianos and grand pianos produced nowadays in Germany come from Brunswick.

This is where the workshops of two large and internationally reputed piano manufacturers are located: Grotrian-Steinweg and Schimmel. The film portrays the history of the two makes, tells about composers, pianists and home musicians who play on Brunswick grand pianos, and accompanies the singer Udo Jürgens with his ”transparent Schimmel piano” on a concert tour. The documentary also considers the economic turbulence that has affected piano production over the last years. Employees at Grotrian-Steinweg and Schimmel have been forced to either accept wage cuts or work only 30 hours a week.
