Franz Mohr has been chief concert technician for piano maker Steinway and Sons for more than a quarter century. As the close colleague of legendary musicians such as Horowitz, Rubinstein, Gould, Serkin, and many others, Franz Mohr has attended to their instruments, making delicate adjustments that affect tone, balance, and other characteristics of sound. It is Mohr who enables virtuosos to fully realize their own individual interpretative styles and concepts of tonal color. Besides recounting his experiences as master piano technician, Franz Mohr helps us to understand the quest for perfection and sensitivity expressed in the lives of a select group of individuals, in the crafting of a piano, and in all of life. He shares his personal story and how his experiences have brought a deeper melody to his work. The life story of Franz Mohr is a collection of stories that reveal his love for music, the piano, the people who play it, and a God who has given him the talent to be a part of the world he loves.
