I, too, am really interested to know this. The Rach 2 is one of my all-time favorites and, while I am not an accomplished enough pianist to play it end-to-end, there are certain passages I really like that I frequently approximate that consist of tho

One factor in treble breakage is that when one is installing strings it is very easy to inadvertently apply too much tension on the treble strings. So they can get damaged in the installation process by being over stretched. The damage doesn't manife

Back cloth does nothing to convergence, and balance height almost nothing. Lining both hack to knuckle and key to whippen imply modification of stack installation, orientation, and eventually the distance between centers in the vertical plane,

Concert pianos are often subject to broken strings due to fatigue from heavy use and high tensions. The music does not matter. It is the amount of use they get.
