It seems that Gergiev was under pressure and had to obey the orders. But at least the deal seems to be limited only for the competition. Now he is acting by his free will.

When I took my CTE exam, with Bill as one of my examiners coincidentally, I had a friend with a Cyber Tuner. I asked if it was calibrated. "Oh yes. It came from the factory perfectly calibrated." I checked my fork. It registered flat. I fil

Jump to new posts Re: Keyframe corner rounded at una corda spring contact by Ed McMorrow, RPT @ Today at 12:31 AM

When the key guide plates are replaced, just try the pedal and see how it works. It will need a little grease on it to work well and retard wear. If it feels too hard to the foot, replacing the spring with one that fits the keyframe may be the wisest

I have never seen a Vose grand that I could justify rebuilding unless the owner was attached for emotional reasons. In the US, $15K could get you a very nice condition Baldwin or Chickering grand from the 1950 to 1980 era. It will take some searching

Walkingintheair, I'm sorry that you are sad by the responses. My dad played by ear, so did my son. Problem with playing by ear is you really have to have the sounds of the music in your head, you have to already know. If you don't know it, you won't
