Product Description

Franz Mohr has been the chief concert technician for piano manufacturer Steinway and Sons for more than a quarter of a century. As a close friend and colleague to legendary musicians such as Horowitz, Rubinstein, Gould, and Serkin, Mohr gives readers a fascinating glimpse into the lives of this century's most remarkable pianists. Mohr tells stories about Horowitz's temperamental genius, Rubenstein's use of hair spray on piano keys to achieve the "perfect grip," and Van Cliburn's memorable performance for Gorbachev at the White House. However, at the heart of this book is the story of one man's deep faith resonating through the rarefied world of concert pianists.

    What a treat to step backstage with Franz Mohr in his memoir describing his association with the great pianists of the 20th century! This is the history I didn't learn when studying for my master's. I was happy to pass it along to several students in my piano studio. Mr. Mohr's writing voice is a delight!
