I agree with you, the 280 is somewhat atypical for Bosendörfer. The 290 and 225 seem to have been modeled after the 275 if I'm not mistaken. I LOVE the 225, haven't heard an imperial in concert yet unfortunately.

Looking at a 1914 Baldwin 5'8" rebuilt in 1984. Looks like it is in great shape and cared for. I spoke with a technician who inspected and serviced it within one month of sell posting. When I expressed concern over 34 year old parts, he did

For me, both these composers are "extremely great", would be in my top 10 for composers of piano music, and I could not place one above the other. But I am under the impression that high level pianists and sophisticated listeners tend to t

BTW, piano manufactures want to sell you pianos--not their action parts. Selling too many action parts means that the manufacture is competing with the rebuild of their own product. Every set of action that are sold means one less new piano to be sol

Jump to new posts Re: Issue with chord inversions and left hand by Brian Lucas @ 08/31/14 01:58 PM

I think the trick to inversions is to always see the chord in root position and then use a concept called octave displacement to move a few of the notes to a different octave. This way, you're not learning a bunch of "new" chords, but just

I played a *lot* of "oom-pah" in the left hand which I had practiced exactly as I needed to do it before I could spontaneously use a different inversion when I wanted to. And then it got to where I could do it with chords I didn't use as of

Let's say I'm playing an F chord for example. I can easily see all the inversions for F pop out when I start on any one of them. But then if I'm on a different chord and have to change to F(without going to the root), I'm a bit lost, unless I have pr

Hi there, Elizabeth! Well, the one thing that struck me in listening was how fully formed and unique Schumann's musical pallette was, even in Op 1 -- no juvenilia here! Very much like Beethoven in this regard -- a mature and original musical langua
