Ivan Moravec was one of those pianists who kept a relatively low profile (probably a path of his own choosing), but was particularly beloved by connoisseurs of piano music. The Chopin Preludes were widely regarded as the "definitive" interp

KurtZ, Thanks for those very informative links! Yes, I'm very lucky - the neighbor squirrels actually like my playing - they sit in the trees and look in the window while I play.

That piano is not so very nice... When I ran into the calculation problems, I just finished up with the Verituner, which I had been using to first pass while the Entropy was busy thinking. I didn't have time to fully tune this time. Mostly, I'm go

Hi Ron, Same here...I watch the inhamonicity graph carefully, and when that happens, (only 1 or 2 notes usually), I re-record that string, or, will change the string, and it does seem to put the bar similar to the curve that preceded it. Anxious to

I always knew there was a reason the sides of the keys on my digital are painted woody-brown - to convince ignorant punters like myself that the keys were actually made of wood, with a (fake) ivory surface. What can be more natural - wood + elephant

Wasn't it Artur Rubinstein who, when a keyboard was too clean, would surreptitiously spray hairspray on the keys to maintain grip?
