Thanks for the link, Andy. I had seen something like it, but with less detail. I also ran across a mention of Rubinstein demonstrating the dance steps for the recording engineers when he was recording the Mazurka (Oh, to have been a fly on the wall!)

Hi, I just got a new Yamaha P105 digital piano and was really pleased with it but when I went to try my headphones, the sound continued to come out of the speakers with no sound from the headphones. I don't think it's the headphones that are the pro

Nice playing. I would only want a little bit quicker tempo (just a little bit) and LOTS of rubato. Thanks for introducing this piece to the forum.

I fully agree with Kawai James' comments on the CP300. I actually go back further--I have a P250, the CP300's predecessor with the same amp/speaker system. Fantastic on-board sound that can't be beat, even now, by any portable keyboard (I'd put &quo
