There's a remarkable clarity not only to the sound but also to your articulation; or, perhaps the sound is so clear because the articulation and use of pedal are so judiciously done. I wouldn't think you need to play around too much with the tempo;

Wow, TS. This is beautiful! Your playing is so patient. The music sounds "comfortable in its own skin," if you know what I mean. Quiet and confident and at peace with itself. You're really on to something, here. --Andy

I asked this question to a Jazz guitarist that also plays piano. His explanation thus, "Playing everything in 1st inversion is like bar chording everything." It's not the jumping around that deters me, in fact I practiced a bunch of songs,

In principle, the more "LAYERS" the better. IN PRACTICE, there's more to it. My current "GOTO" piano sample--great for practising in SILENCE (with earphones)--is the KAWAI ES 100. (The on-board speakers are unusable.) I hav

The best of the libraries pull it off by virtue of extra care (and maybe a dash of luck) but I do suspect the difficulties mount at transitions with ever more layers - more so when respecting each of the layers' sonic integrity (no cross-fading). Co

John, Unfortunately, in some respects, it is on its belly at this point. There was really no safe way to trailer it 300 miles on its side. I looked it over a bit more closely last night and note that all of the strings are present albeit tarnished.

I have listened to an awful lot of mazurkas during this time, and I'd have to say they don't strike me as all that similar. This one, with the um-pa-pa in the background has more of a waltz feel really. But who knows what it's intended to be original

Hi there, I was at my local dealer's store today to try two new grands: Ritmüller GH148R and Ritmüller R9. I liked both of them, but they were very different in tone and touch. The R9 was much, much brighter. The GH148R rather mellow in a ver
