Enrico, I did not malign Seiler in this thread. I described their pianos as "solid", "well-regarded" and "high-quality". I simply stated that the Seiler marque has minimal name recognition or prestige in the U.S. marke

I don't know. Am I wrong in saying that the wings of the Spirit of St-louis were built by a piano company? That piano wire was used for the controls? Building things that need to be light weight? Don't see much wood in planes anymore. And they are

Remember that just about any Stradivarius that you hear today bears little resemblance to the instrument that Stradivarius made. If they are set up as modern instruments, the neck has been lengthened, the fingerboard is different, the bridge and the

I tried to play this etude when I first got it (because why not, and even if I can't play it up to speed, it wouldn't hurt to improve this particular technique which is difficult for me). I couldn't get past the first few measures without being bored
