I also tend to get editions that have more than one work (multi-band editions of "complete xyz Composer"), or group genres of works together (xyz Composer Preludes). And when I do that, I lean towards Henle or Wiener Urtext. You know--sta

I'm sure this is a nice upright piano, but $28,000 is a high price for an upright piano to be sold to schools. I hope they offer steep institutional discounts.

Well, with specific regard to how it is taught, I guess it's not too broad or overly simplistic of a question. I know, watching my teacher introduce basic phrasing to my daughter, that she has her physically lift the wrist up and out of the phrase,

One way to adjust the "sensitivity" of the tone, to varying touch: . . . Use a software piano to generate the sound, rather than the . . . tones built into the DP. Pianoteq (and probably other software pianos) lets you do two things: .

I had the P155 (I tried the 155 and 255 side-by-side and made that choice), but I now have a Kawai. I tried the ES7 and liked it - it plays nice and I almost got it. To me it felt like a clear step above the Yamaha. The ES7 has the same 5-setting to

Frankly, there isn't enough time or space to talk about phrasing in a single piece, let alone in a period style or composer, or how it changes over time, and especially in terms of color, articulation and/or rubato. The obvious thing to say is far t

It is a piano meant to be knocked around. It is a nice idea. We add stuff to pianos to make them stand up to the abuse that they get in places like schools, and this piano has them, and a few extras as well, all standard equipment.
