My achievement of the week: made a plan, and sort of stuck to it. My first Schumann piece is coming together quite quickly, I only had HS on the plan for the week but got impatient and started HT on some sections. Gold star for starting at the end o

I remember reading somewhere that in baroque period, the performer would tune his own instrument since sometimes the harpsichord (for example), would go out of tune while performing and would need re-tuning to continue the concert. So why don't piani

Hi Max, I listened to not only that link of your especially restored Pleyel but also an additional recording of it at your youtube channel. The recordings are very interesting. One can hear the Chopin-Pleyel connection.

Hi Stephen, The Pleyel looks lovely, and thanks for sharing the photos of the original hammers. It would be great to hear a recording of how it sounds.

I think this is the difference between an aural tuner and an ETD tuner. When you tune aurally you make a lot of tests without even thinking of them. It is like riding a bike or driving a car. You do not think at every move you do, you just do it. In

Hi Laguna, Ando says it is a very nice piano, he's played it, maybe he can comment a little on how well the Idil Biret recording captures its sound. To my ears - and I've done a bit of recording with various pianos and microphones - this is a very

I tried that but my keyboard still will not show up as a recording device. This worked perfectly fine on my other computer but for some reason this computer seems to have problems whenever I try to record something.

Simply said, repetition problems are usually due to a regulation problem. Even the Schwander type action had decent repetition. The back check should be catching the hammer on anything above a low dynamic light blow. If the rep lever is catching a
