Hi John, I'm not sure about a green bag hanging inside, but I have a Kawai K48A from 1969. I bought it from the estate of a professonal church pianist/organist/teacher. And, she had it maintained and cared for very well over the years. I don't kno

As it turned out, R. Strauss was no Nazi sympathizer. His story is absolutely fascinating, especially his efforts to save the lives of his Jewish daughter-in-law and her family. Edited to add: Here is a book that is on my list of things I ultimate

Can someone tell me more about the K48. Quality, level of performance. Cant seem to find anything on the internet. Mine is a 1968, 3 pedal. There also is a little cloth green sac/bag hanging in the piano. What is that for?

Any competitions that allow teachers of competitors to also act as judges seems ripe for bias and corruption. There is no way that the appearance of bias could be eliminated, not to mention the possibility of true bias, even if not intended.

Thank you all for helping me out. As you can guess, I'm not very good at analyzing or interpreting a piece... yet. I'm more of a methodical, follow-the-rules type, so when the "rules" don't make sense to me it sort of throws me off. It's so

Peyton - that doesn't actually sound too easy to me , keeping it going for 4+ minutes and controlling the dynamics seems plenty difficult to me. Well done.

Those are actually rolled up socks. The monitors usually rest on those grey mouse pads but I am experimenting with trying to get a better angle for hearing the sound. I don't think this setup is permanent.

Just an update to the OP. I really got curious about the music. I've now had a chance to cover all my students and many of their parents. All of my Korean families tell me it's "very familiar" but they can't quite place it. Perhaps it's

Fun performance on a generally unpractical instrument. It was nice when the piano business had more variety and room for some of these experimental products. However, the extra long music desk will have a lot of fans here. Thanks for sharing.

The entire sonata is wonderful - my favorite movement is actually the 3rd, and you will get more play out of the 2nd movement than any of the others if you do any weddings or parties as it's very familiar to most people. Learning an entire sonata is
