Is this a thread for 'A bad workman blames his piano'? Or more accurately '....blames whoever invented an instrument that he can't be bothered learning to play properly'?

1/2 Cola would mean half size piano. That could be anything from 180 to 210 cm. The piano looks like a 190-200 cm with a Bluthner Patent Action. Made around 1890.

My guess is it felt like a Steinway i.e. deeper keydip and heavier touch weight. He even told Fontana to sneak off to, heaven forbid, Erard's!

I'll bet that's worth listening to. Won't be very authentic but, unlike Gould, there will be phrasing!

Music is my friend that never deceives me. It soothes my soul and communicates with the past. It's totally irrelevant if anybody else likes or approves of it. It is for me alone. It's an endless landscape for a life-long exploration.

That 1862 Bechstein is a nice one but it doesn't seem to always record very well . . . it sounds good in those two links. When it comes to the older pianos I tend to go mostly for the Erards. This one from the 1850s sounds pretty good for a 160 or
