Thank you so much to everyone who took the time to listen to my piece and give me some feedback. I still feel this is a work in progress, but at the same time it has been somewhat of a break-through piece in terms of being able to give expression to

It was used for 1 season at Tanglewood in 2007 and I purchased it in 2015. It sat on the showroom floor from 2009 and was marketed as a Steinway Festival Piano. It was not a practice piano and was used, according to the Steinway rep, by a famous cond

Thanks for your responses. They're really helpful. I had my piano tuner look at it. He didn't know of any way to remove that sound, and did think it was really loud on my piano. A technician from the piano store also looked at it, tried replacing

Thanks. I tried it both ways and I like Rintincops suggestion of me playing the walking bass line in the left hand. Otherwise it just doesn't seem to "flow" somehow. Thanks for all the suggestions.

It's a common issue and can most likely be improved by a technician. It's unavoidable that the dampers will make *some* noise when lifted, which is why pianists learn to control it like prout explained. But it shouldn't be obnoxious.

I disagree about the M&H screw stringer, I think it's a perfectly good system. You simply drop the tension until the pitch changes, then raise it directly up to pitch without stopping or overshooting. Someone (Jim Geiger I think?) brought one to

Play Vince's right hand lines while playing the bass part with the left hand. That's how I have seen a number of pianists do good job of covering Vince's solo.
