Last year The Piano Brothers composed the music for a video for Telegraph Luxury. The video charted the making of a Steinway Model D Piano. The Piano Brothers also feature in the video. Elwin commented 'taking part in such a wonderful film was a pleasure and really demonstrates the beauty of the Steinway Model D Piano'.

The Piano Brothers are Dominic Anthony Ferris (UK) and Elwin Hendrijanto (Indonesia). They began performing together in 2009 whilst studying at the Royal College of Music and staged their first public outing to a packed RCM concert hall performing Bernstein’s Symphonic Dances from ‘West Side Story’ for two pianos.
After playing for the international press launch of the Royal Wedding at Lancaster House, they recorded their first EP at Abbey Road Studios in February 2012.
Dominic and Elwin soon came to the attention of Steinway & Sons. Steinway’s managing director, Craig Terry, hosted a launch event for The Piano Brothers in 2013 at Steinway Hall London, where they performed an electrifying concert of original piano arrangements. In 2013, Dominic and Elwin were commissioned by Steinway to compose the music for a short film called 'The Making of A Steinway B', which demonstrated the building process of a Steinway grand piano in the world-famous Hamburg factory.
In January 2014, Dominic and Elwin performed the piano parts for the music of the opening ceremony of the Sochi Winter Olympics, recorded at Abbey Road Studios. In the Summer of that year, The Piano Brothers made their London concert debut at Kings Place London.
The Piano Brothers are currently on tour with concerts in the UK and Asia.
