Jump to new posts Favorite Beethoven Sonata cycles? by TwoSnowflakes @ Today at 09:43 AM

I feel like we've had this discussion at some point in the not-too-distant past, but oh well. So I was just curious as to what folks' thoughts were on a good set of sonata recordings. Not the usual "if you could only have one" but let's s

Sorry I took so long to reply. I have been trying to decide if pianos are stuck as a result of the market being overly conservative and not demanding more from the manufacturers, or if the manufacturers are comfortable making the same product for al

Hi, Jeffrey -- Coincidentally, "Vespers" will be presented in Madison this Saturday (by a local choral group) -- and I'll be most interested to hear that. I've always thought that Rachmaninov's best piece is "The Bells", and tha

A few comments, I have sold a good many 506 units and, in fact, a couple of very fine professional pianists have chosen them as well. I just went to play our stock 506 and I hear no hiss. Presently I am the only one here and the showroom is very q

If nothing else, and I like his piano music less as the years go by, Rachmaninoff wrote one of the most amazing a capella choral works - Vespers/All Night Vigil. The quality of the vocal writing and setting is top of the top.. it does for the Eastern

My understanding of the RCM exam position is that if you are using RCM-published music, you are allowed to copy one single page for page-turning purposes. I always wonder, when I read this: but what if there's more than one awkward page turn? ISTM

Do you have a syllabus that you can check? I know that the Royal Conservatory here in Canada has defined their stance on photocopies in their syllabus. Usually, if you own the original book, you are allowed to make one single photocopy, at least for

Hi Nordomus, Sorry to hear how you are feeling about your instrument. It seems a few of the big name brands are marketing 'high end' digital products but cutting costs with cheap components (ie your hissing amp and speakers) and also with the quali

Might this thread be more focused if we simply all agreed that: It is not the genre. It's the training. Don't allow yourself to be trained as a parrot. Find good training that teaches all about music/piano. Then, it's up to the student. Uh hummm ..
