I would like to see "user presets" with the possibility to save on a preset the option "local off" by default. I use my HP-507 to control Pianoteq and I must set the "control off" manually every time I open the piano.

Hi there, just to clarify, you have a teacher but you are not working with your teacher on the most advanced piece you're trying to learn? Is that right? "Intermediate" is a very fuzzy word and I wouldn't worry too much about what level yo

It really seems like overkill to me paying for an inspection of a 500 dollar piano. If all the notes play both softly and loud, the keys come back to their positions, the dampers work, the pedals work and the instrument is to pitch and in tune I do

I remember a "ringing" on an old 1902 Blüthner upright that I had. Probably, it was mostly because of the aging, over-damper action that was no longer as efficient as it had been. I used to wonder how this piano would have sounded when ne

The dotted half notes between 3:40 and 3:45 are an exception to the way she plays throughout the rest of the piece. I am sure it is a choice in order to get that sudden slightly harsh accent. One would not want that in all of one's octave playing. T

Jump to new posts Re: A revelation on uprights by Steve Senseney @ Yesterday at 02:00 PM

I appreciate your comments on these pianos. After all of this reading, how would you compare these to vintage Steinway uprights from 1890-1910. (I don't have access to very many new pianos, but these old Steinways have been my favorite.)

Don't forget the Latin dances - tango, samba etc. Plenty of tangos by Piazzolla in arrangements for solo piano (e.g. the well-known Libertango); there's also an easy one by Albéniz (or you can choose Godowsky's 'elaboration' of it). More Argentinian

It can go the other way, too. I've had some experience (in the long-distant past) of starting lessons on a per-lesson basis with teachers who more or less announced, "Oh, I don't want to teach you any more - sorry" and that was that. In ret

The DP90 is very expensive. The DP90SE (The old model was the DP90S) even more so, on account of the shiny black finish. And better keyboard action. And, I believe, the piano voices are better too. It does look a million dollars and weighs in at
