Meeting Franz Mohr

This morning I heard Franz Mohr speak to a small group of piano lovers at the Greene Music piano showroom in San Marcos. Mr. Mohr recounted many amazing stories from his 30 years as the concert artist technician for Steinway. For most of three decades he personally tuned and maintained Vladimir Horrowitz' piano at home, in concert and for recordings. Mr. Mohr has compiled a delightfully entertaining memoir of his life's work in a book entitled, My Life with the Great Pianists
