Nice video Alexander. Beautiful to see that. Indeed, we are so lucky to be able to play. I cherish it, everyday. Like an Ace in the pocket that not many know about or would understand. But it feels good to have.

Since this is a rental piano, was it tuned after it was delivered to your apartment and after (perhaps) it had a few weeks to acclimatize to your apartment's environment (if different from that of the store)? First step, I think, would be to call th

Thank you very much! It is a Yamaha CLP 535. I (and many others) usually use the Yamaha CFX sound, but I realised that the "Bright piano" sample is much more beautiful to play some pieces like this.
