Wonderful playing. Clear, clean pedaling. Nice "pearly" tone in middle section. Definitely show this as early Debussy -- with hints of Impressioism to come. Also like left hand-playing around 3:06. Looking forward to hearing more of yo

I'm not at the recording stage yet. I thought I had my arrangement for a vocal version of Emily set and just needed to polish up the piano solo sections a bit, but once again I was inspired by another ABF member's abilities to try to raise the bar a

That is the pure awesomeness of having flexible unison types: DOA, like the people, don't move very much, and when they do, the death rattle can be an intense experience for the observer! Colour Unisons have the ability to move in both directions,

Definitely a good start. Would like to get more of a dance-like feel. The true "mazurka" accent on 3rd beat feel. And perhaps a bit less pedaling. Has some nice phrasing and impressive to hear after only 1 day of working on it. Looking

The thing is, you need a lamp that isn't going to rattle and buzz. A floor lamp with a reflector spot bulb is a safer choice if you have a big vibration problem. But I've done OK with a swing arm halogen desk lamp. It has a heavy solid base, which

A pianist played Mozart's K545 on the composer's own Walter fortepiano beautifully - so beautifully that the ancient instrument felt obliged to compliment the pianist on his grasp of its master's music. The pianist replied with pride, "It's my

Jump to new posts Re: Proper chunking method by JohnSprung @ Yesterday at 04:04 PM

In some music, phrases and measures line up, but often the phrase boundaries aren't on the bar lines. A lot of Cole Porter's stuff is like that. I like to do chunks of a phrase or two, plus the first note or chord of the next phrase. The start poi

Jump to new posts Re: Partial strength - hammer voicing or soundboard ? by gynnis @ Yesterday at 03:52 PM

I find the width of the unisons depends a lot on the piano. I tune my Seiler pretty wide since it has a pretty short resonance time (although pulling the pitch back to 440 from 438 seems to have fixed that to some extent). My Chickering I tune narr

Thanks, I'll look it up. Something like Kirnberger III is probably too strong for this era. My thinking was that if Viennese unisons could "pull" the pitch a bit, it might interact with the temperament especially in the area of the "
