You could argue that taking one world-renowned concert pianist, adding in a European destination and sprinkling it with unlimited access to the Steinway factory, might be a good place to start!
This was the pleasant situation we found ourselves in when St Mary's Music School asked us to document the selection process for what is to be a once-in-a-generation purchase of a new Steinway Model B piano.
We spent 3 days in Hamburg in December where we followed Steven Osbourne and Head of Piano, John Cameron as they put 5 selected pianos through their paces. We also had the chance to gather location b-roll of the city itself (including the incredible Elbphilharmonie Hamburg!) and the absolute luxury of a day in the Steinway factory filming the stages of manufacture that these exquisite instruments go through.
St Mary's took delivery of the Model B piano earlier this year and we followed up with a day of performance filming on the stunning new instrument. With all the elements slotting nicely into place and with the film now complete we're excited to release it on our website to coincide with St Mary's own launch.
