I digitized a film in which you can hear the aluminum Blüthner on the airship Hindenburg.

Can anyone identify the piece, or the pianist?

What a rare and wonderful sample of archival footage! The Blüthner piano sounds beautiful. It was the era of a "golden age" of piano making for that great piano maker.


Thank you,

Robert.

Neat footage. Thanks for bringing it to the forum. No idea who is playing. The piece sounds like "pop" music from the era, not classical.
