Ed, Thank you for your comments. You had a very nice solo piano groove on How High The Moon. I like the left hand bass line call and response kind of fills during the melody. It gave the sense that there was a bass player there. It's hard when go

The Hamburg pianos have always been consistently excellent, and I've never played a Hamburg Steinway that hasn't been a beautiful instrument (taking into account varying degrees of preparation by the technician of course). Even the Hamburg instrumen

It's your imagination, but the imagining happens while you are playing. We hear in our mind the way we want it to sound, but that doesn't make it to our fingertips. Which is why recording yourself every now and then is a good check on how you are act

From the price and the information given here, my gut instinct says go for the Kawai. The Knabe doesn't sound like it has had a comprehensive rebuild at that price. That said, I'd have to sit down at each piano and play them, and decide which one I l

Dynamic range. You do your best to incorporate light and shade in your efforts. Sounds OK in the flesh, so to speak. But having recorded, the result seemed rather toned down in that department, like by half! Maybe this is all in my imagination. .

Actually you're not the first person to say this. Both Murray McLachlan (head of piano at Chethams and teacher at RNCM in Manchester) and Artur Pizarro have said to me they play them as encore pieces. I'm not sure which ones. Artur said the first 6 a

One of the few times a bump is welcomed here on PW, at least on my opinion. I'm glad this young pianist is enjoying success, and I only wish the best on him. He plays well and shows promise for sure.

It's just a show-off concerto anyway. Why not play them fast? Or, if you go slower, try to sound artsy? There's not much to it, just octaves.

Bellycapelli, that growl has been usually avoided from the main sample session, just as harmonics. I think there are both technical and psychological (human perception) reasons to do so. Neither common speaker systems or headphones, nor human ear, ar
