I have a top-notch rebuilt and refinished "O" (rebuilt by Cunningham) including a new soundboard. The price you are being quoted, if the rebuild is of similar quality, is reasonable.

Hi Francisco, Thanks for answering! Yes, it is an interpretation with a capital "I," I realize, but I definitely hear what you're saying about it being too slow. I had thought about the metronome at some point too.... Never thought about

Is that your idea of a joke? Just in case it isn't: no. Even Andras Schiff, who argues that most people play this movement too slowly, doesn't play it half as fast as that. And by the way, if that's really you playing, then why do you ask?

Not all the workers in the steinway factory have the same view on every detail that goes into a piano. Workers argue about what is best. At some level of resolution a handmade piano reflects that. The same process goes on in a top rebuilding shop.
