It's interesting to see his perspective that the new Masons are equal to the "golden era" Masons, whereas it seems to be the general opinion on this forum that they are quite different instruments tonally. Yet he does mention that the clas

And yes, I quite adore Saint Saens 5. Such an underrated masterpiece -- the second theme of the first movement melts my heart every time I play it. And yes. What a finale, too! I have prepared Chopin 1, Mozart 22, Mozart 27, and Saint Saens 5, and I

Anita, I didn't get the link to your piece. In fact, lately I haven't been getting the link to anyone's pieces in their posts, but I DO get the link if someone else "quotes" it in their comment. Weird!!!

Thank you kindly for the input! The first stage requires me to play a Beethoven sonata and a piece of my own choice. Since I am allowed 25 minutes, I figured that I'd go for a shorter piece by Poulenc, which I quite love. The competition is Hamamatsu

Fair enough - I didn't express myself well. I just mean you share something called a Chopin Prelude but what is actually presented is something entirely different. In a previous post you have said that you could call it 'inspired by' or something l

I'd stay away from one-size-fits-all statements like the metronome is crucial, or that it's helpful for anyone learning a given piece. It depends on your skill level, and your particular strengths and weaknesses. In my own case, subtleties of phrasi

How the attack of the sample is edited, to allow a little more breathing space at it's attack component, should be ignored in a test like this. It does contribute to how the piano feels(as in hitting it's stride) but the initial attack is the point

The click of the pen on the key occurs at contact. Any acoustic player knows sound occurs at hammer contact with string and we push our arms and fingers into the instrument for musical events to occur when we desire them to. Any latency is naturall

Are you sure you want to trash the piano? It looks to be very salvageable with a bit of attention from a technician. I've played the SV1 and I'd have to say a maintained Baldwin upright would be more satisfying to me. If you are determined to proce

One might categorize it as something akin to a 'paraphrase' maybe? But I agree with Bruce that its too much of a distortion to claim its a performance of Chopin's Op 28 No 1 prelude. I have to wonder if as a listener we are being duped somehow - bai

If you research Chickering, you will find an incredible range, with all sorts of plate designs, ranging from light to very heavy. I'll wager the cost of my next moving bill if I'm wrong. I paid five times the cost to move it last time that I paid fo
