We love pianos
Now it's official: we will tune the pianos for the classical music festival Habana Clásica in Havana, Cuba, from 5th to 15th November 2019!
We are Allegro Pianoforti, a little piano shop in Munich, Germany, and we love pianos!
We are against mass production of low quality pianos, which only brings sadness and suffering, both to people and environment. That's why we care for EVERY piano - the grandma's little old upright too!
We think that repairing is better than throwing away.
We love Music
We have been organizing concerts in our shop since 2011. Many international artists played our concert pianos. We are specialized in preparing pianos for the concerts and love to work together with musicians and fulfill their desires. That is what our tuner and technician Francesco has been doing for twenty years.
In April 2019 we were in Havana and worked together with Mr. Giovanni Duarte, the director at Gran Teatro de la Habana and conductor of Teatro Lírico Nacional de Cuba, where Francesco prepared and tuned a beautiful concert grand "Steinway D" for a celebrating concert for the pianist Frank Fernández on 5th May 2019.
It was a great experience and also a big lesson for us: the institution and the people who are working there, incredibly talented and generous people like our friend Giovanni Duarte, still need help from professionals and tools and material for the maintenance of the instruments and that of course because of the blockade.
We would like to provide as much help as we can while in Cuba. However, this is no easy task for us! As in order to do so, Francesco will fly over to Cuba himself, meaning our shop will stay closed during his stay in Havana.
We would love to help by buying our Cuban colleagues all they might need, in order for their pianos to sound amazing and last longer. (Francesco will also give tuning-classes for the cuban collegues).
Donate for music, donate for the soul of Cuba :)
