The Ritmullers sound nice, Norbert. And, "Fast fingers Freddy" does a great job playing the upright. I'd love to hear the Seiler now... Rick

Polyphonist is that how you play them, with four fingers? I was taught the standard way (I guess that's what you'd call it). A C scale 123, 1234 etc for R.H. And 54321, 321, 4321 in L.H. Ascending. Noted the four finger runs Lisitsa does in her pl

Beautiful work! Looks like you had fun too. It all looks very familiar to uprights made in the US, except for the bass bridge, which has that extra extension pointing up into the treble. I don't remember seeing that before. Sam

Bourniplus, It is difficult to describe. You loosen the string sufficiently so that with a string hook or even just a screwdriver blade, you can lift the back edge of the coil (nearest the cast iron frame) so that it crosses over the coil and that

Its size is from multiple mic perspectives and multiple sampling rate samples. Not generally what would make a library sounds good. I've checked it a while ago. The demo sounds nice. But it requires full Kontakt. That's a deal breaker for me. (Also

I've watched some videos of pianists who seem to do scale like runs using only four fingers and use the fifth finger only on the last key of the run. Any info on where I can read about this? Thanks.

I've not heard of Production Grand, actually. Lacking half-pedaling is not a good thing, though. The software libraries that get a lot of attention on here, for what it's worth: -Pianoteq (modeled not sampled) -Ivory II -Ravenscroft (and other True

Hi Tim, I've enjoyed exploring these compositions too. Although Kazhlayev's roots are in the Late Romantic style, the occasional dissonances makes me wonder if he is beginning to experiment in the Modern style. But then again, he composed the Six P

I am of two minds about tackling a "too difficult" piece. Yes, much can be learned from pieces that are, overall, too difficult. Quite often, however, the same techniques can be refined by studying pieces that are within one's grasp. Th
