Yes, the nord stage 2 HA88 has an excellent action for playing piano. Yes, it lacks the absolute realism of the upper level kawai and roland pianos, but it's (imo) much better than the action of a lot of lower end DP's. It connects really well to

The biggest difference I notice when listening to someone playing classical or jazz, is the venue. A well tuned piano certainly is a requirement, but in a huge auditorium, the piano generally has to be voiced to project over/with the orchestra. For a

There are what seems to be two pieces of music, but they may be the same piece at contrasting sections. Can you ID it for me? It sounds like something Schumann. 6:54 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CCe2j1_TUwg&t=6m54s
