I thought Greg's playing was superb. Unfortunately, it seemed that Ken picked a tempo that was too fast - and his playing suffered as a result. Matthias was fine - but he played from the score. I can't imagine the judges awarding first prize to a

Oh wow. I just listened to Choros. It's like a raging, delicious fever.... The antidote to which is The Earth Prelude. Very intense! I like it a lot! It's this one, right?

Thanks for psoting that, I hadn't heard it before but it was very interesting. For some reason, I didn't like the I Giorni vocal version, neither the vocalist nor the lyrics. Sorry! The whole thing feels incredibly over-produced, which comes off fe

Matthias Fischer is making a great case for himself too. (Playing right now -- 1st mvt of Beethoven #1.) I only heard bits of his prior rounds and don't know exactly how he did except that obviously it had to have been superb or he wouldn't be in thi

I've wondered how much input Einaudi had on those lyrics. The vocal version of Nuvole Bianche is a track on the Taranta album, by the way, Shiro--another reason to buy it. (Choros is the first reason to buy it. One of his best intense/powerful pie

I feel you will probably be happier spending several thousand to trade up from a quality 52" vertical to a longer piano than what you've mostly been considering, at least sonically.

Now on an acoustic piano, play a simple LH pattern on the low bass like C1 then D1 (repeat) while playing C#7, D#7 with the RH. Then use C7, D7 instead for the RH. Which one sounds better ? Then try a A0, B0 pattern (LH) with A7, B7 (RH). Then use
