According to an old thread, it is the precessor to the RX-3. Is it correct to think that "Artisan" means highest care, such as in Shigeru Kawais? http://www.pianoworld.com/forum/ubbthrea...oder%20rin.html

As I heard from my technician, Steinway builds the whole instrument under tension. Even the keybed is not flat so it is under tension when fitted. The angle of the left end of the cabinet is not 90 degrees but a bit bigger because of stress they buil

I haven't posted any performances in a while, as I've had a little uptick in the difficulty of the pieces I am working on. I recently enjoyed one of my periodic forays into the local mega mega used bookstore and came upon a couple of gems. The first
