This is exactly what I was going to say -- the opening measure reminds me of Chopin's 25/12, because in that etude, you do the same "pinky to thumb" trick in fast sixteenths for the arpeggios. And that is way, way beyond beginner/intermedi

I hadn't heard this piece before, but you're right: the march section contrasts beautifully with the opening and ending themes. And there are lots of delicate figures and ornaments that sound just beautiful, especially in this recording by Sara Danes

The MP11 sounds good. Does anyone have experience with how its action compares to a CP4? Am I right in saying that it has no speakers built-in?

Emmery, You might want to talk springs with John Rhodes, RPT in Vancouver WA. He is an engineer who worked for Hewlett-Packard for some time. He made some alternative jack springs that were on the market for a short time I believe. There was an artic

Any piano you buy is going, eventually, to need new strings. When I bought my Bechstein the conversation with the tech went something like this: "Have the strings been replaced" "Yes, of course." (BTW in heavy Bulgarian accent

Hi. Just to emphasize, I didnt tune this. It was a professional tuner that did (I suppose- I don't know the tuner or his name since it's from a conservatory). We are indeed hearing unisons and you can distinctly hear the beats in the skeleton.
