Ah, she seems to be a polarizing one. I remember I loved her playing 5 years ago and I was hoping she would go further back then. I also liked her playing a lot during the Cliburn. However, many of my friends completely do not understand why I like h

There are people who expose themselves to pianos in circumstances far more "risky" for hearing than your setup. Yet they still hear well into an old age. Here is the story of one of them.

It is a completely unfair reference to Fei-Fei Dong, a wonderful young pianist who reached the finals of the Cliburn competition and who in my opinion has a chance to be one of the most interesting and important pianists of the new generation. Some p

If I had a better sense of (any) contemporary style and how that style may convey cogent messages to its listeners, I might be able to make some intelligent comment about this work. Not being able to do so, I will simply say that it is an impressive

The action is a pretty comfortable medium, I'd say. It's not heavy to where I feel I have to bang on it, but it's not exactly Horowitz' piano either. My tech had explained early on that some of the PERCEIVED loudness has a lot to do with tuning and

I prefer to learn by ear whenever possible. Classical music requires the music because of it`s complexity and precision. Other music apart from jazz, relies on simple chords plus melody line. Baroque music is typical of this. As long as you know

A few dollars? Some dealers quote about 30% more than they typically sell for to take advantage of the uninformed. I guess for a U1 that isn't a huge sum but if you're looking at pianos over $30K that could be one or two tropical family vacations tha

The most important thing is finding the workshop to do the work. I trusted Aronne Pianos , here in Brazil. If you need to replace the soundboard there's the perfect place to buy it in Italy, the Ciresa which provides soundboards for Bluthner!

No problem! In general, your ear will be a pretty good guide. There may be spots where you want to hold the pedal down over 2 or 3 bars, and other places where you don't want it down at all just to give a little contrast. It can be fun to experiment

Sadness! I'll share what I've been hesitant to talk about. There's a used Bosendorfer 225 in CA where the owner wants to find the right home for his beloved piano, and even asked me to send recordings of my playing. I believe him when he said he's

This is true, but I've seen some dealers who will try to sell it for MSRP. I wouldn't say it's irrelevant. If you see a price on the piano, it's probably the MSRP. Most dealers aren't going to put Larry Fine's SMP on the sticker. I'm just glad the

Most actions will repeat more quickly than the reflexes one uses to repeat notes. It is a question of how quick and how far one can lift one's fingers. The repetition action can make a little difference, but it is only in rare circumstances with the

If the action is well designed the keybed should last at least 5 - 10 years or more. I had a CASIO px-330 and 5 years later it still worked perfectly when I sold it. Acoustic pianos don't get moved much. So you have to take in to account how you use
