Chris Maene (1953) learned the craft of instrument making in the piano workshop of his parents in Ruiselede (Belgium), established in 1938. From early on he pursued his passion for instrument making and built his first instrument at the age of 16. He has been avidly building, restoring and collecting valuable instruments ever since. Currently he has collected over 300 unique pianos and fortepianos with a specific interest in concert grand models. They are often rare pieces and many of them are restored for concerts and CD recordings.
