Hey, Tony!~~ Several thoughts after scrutinizing your YouTube performance. 1) Have you ever had a chance to play Beethoven on a period piano? If not, I think your technique is perfect for it. You realize details in the score so perfectly, that I

Well if his business plan includes limited time in a given market he may pull it off by leaving in five years. What is his previous track record. I would send in a "shopper" to get the deal in writing.

Thank you, Felix! Coming from you, that means a lot to me! I hope to record another, different tune for Christmas on a broken-down, vintage Haddorff "vertichord" with a busted bass bridge cap. I love the vintage voicings! --Andy

Agreed on all points. However, this gentleman is new to the area, but claims to come from a family of Piano Dealers. I'm curious what loopholes exist. Time will tell whether he stays in business...

Ethan, On wr's recommendation (and as a radio lover) I started with the WUOL version. I wish I had caught it live over the airwaves. Every composer needs a definitive interpreter, and as far as Alkan goes, you are he. Don't argue. Excellent work

Brendan is right. I don't play this piece myself, but one other thing I might suggest is aiming for maximum "singing" friction of the tumbler against the strings at a slower rate of movement (perhaps more downward force), still accomplishi

Either would be suitable. The korg has more tones, but lacks the ability to split the keyboard. Both boards have (imo) excellent actions (for the price). The casio is more portable and less expensive (even if you get the stand/triple pedal upgrade

So, some of the dampers were not damping, but after the move I noticed that pretty much none of the dampers, except for the lowest octave, seemed to be doing much. A visual inspection showed that they were touching the strings, but they must not have
