Jump to new posts Recommend me some Shostakovich by TwoSnowflakes @ 07/22/14 07:43 PM

I'm really sorely missing my trio. I just loved the wonderful themes in it and the way it just built on itself. No matter how far I dug into it, it just got better and better. I truly loved it. I've got nothing on my plate more modern than Brahms

This piece is a favorite of mine and I remember my mother playing it for me when I was six! I play it regularly and still love it. I like a slightly slower pace and some rubato. In addition, the left hand chords need to be crisply precise, witho

If by academic, you mean to say that straight-strung pianos are only of theoretical interest, then perhaps you've entirely missed the point: by 'design,' an over-strung piano will always have an acoustic difference at the break. While many of us can

Markarian, I can't cite the statistics of the piano industry … then again no one else can either since they don't exist! Nonetheless, I think there are some general characteristics of an industry like this that are at work. First off, as everyone
