The Schimmel 174 was a solid piano. It is under 6', but had good tonal potential. I suggest you have the piano examined by an independent technician. Condition will determine if this is a fair deal for you or not. Cheers,

A 6'3" is a great size piano for the home. I personally like Schimmels. If you love the sound, and feel, and the price is right for you then thats your piano.

First thing I thought of was an extremely dissonant run in the Tarantella, but it's not really that strange.. just violent and jarring. Development section of the Third Sonata, first movement would have to be my real pick. It is all over the place.

Awesome! It's very sophisticated and has a great range of ideas and styles. I love how you quote a little bit of everything. It gives me some ideas for my next performance of it (also in October). Which variation group are you playing? I don't

I have played on a 7'Schimmel grand that was a couple of years old and was only $28k. And it was magnificent! The store had several, but one stood out from the rest in tone quality and touch. It never hurts to just play on different pianos until you

Use which ever one regulates properly. Replacing what was there originally is not always the wise choice.

It's lovely! Did you just sit down and do the improvisation off the top of your head or is it something you had prepared and practiced? It is wonderfully structured and full of invention. I'll be there on the 5th!

The actions are the same Erard/Herz actions for the last Hundred Twenty years and were perfected back then. And when some rebuilders change from that, their clients get their modern pianos changed into fortepianos from too light of hammers and carpal

Microfiber cloths are your friends. My tech and dealer recommend ammonia-free glass cleaner, like Sprayway, to clean off any gunk or finger prints. Always spray the cloth lightly and not the piano!
