I am sorry but the shanks are cut the same lenght but as they are glued on the heads then dry fitted (to allow tilting whenever necessary, by cutting one side ) they need to allow some margin, not bottoming in the butt. On second grade shanks, it i

I second Sam's suggestions. Your Sauter has one of the best upright actions, with the double repetition feature that makes it similar to a grand action. You can practice the most difficult virtuoso repertoire on a piano like that. Try to get your h

Beethoven Bagatelles! I just love them. Some are difficult but many are in reach for an intermediate player and they are all gems. You could try: 119/1 119/2 119/3 119/4 119/5 119/9 119/10 (I play this but much more slowly but its still fun!) 119/1
