Stamford piano expert keeps restoration traditions alive

A Stamford businessman is finding a way to keep his family's craft alive by adapting it to meet today's demands.



Piano expert Yury Feygin works at Amadeus Piano, where he and his crew of apprentices destroy pianos and use their parts to restore others.



Feygin works to restore every inch of what he considers to be pieces of history, using tools crafted by his grandfather in Lithuania.



"This is a very old industry," he says. "A mom-and-pop industry where the tools are crude and handcrafted and there's very little digital machinery."



Feygin says that pianos built today are not made to last, and that is why so few people are still in the restoration business.
