Yes, your poor Beethoven! Why anyone would write anything in C minor is beyond me! But, that is not your problem... Despite the calculated execution, which is very much a factor of your scholarship, there is something incredibly spontaneous ab

Wow, thanks for all the quick replies and great info! A couple other things I'll mention. I ruled out the MP11 out of hand due to its 71.5 lbs. I hadn't looked into the MP 7 , but after reading this, I read some more reviews of it. Seems like a numbe

You can order strings from the factory or distributor, but the dealer will not be happy having an unsaleable piano on the floor until the string comes in. The Kawai service manual that I have says that they sent the measurements to string winders so

You should correct the basic fallacy of your premise; the fingers do not contain muscles. Moreover, there are women who are members here; I am not sure that they appreciate being called "guys."

Absolutely NO question. The Olde English style is by far the best. All the others are just a bit tacky, IMHO. Karl Watson, Staten Island, NY

Have a look at the Market Map on PianoBuyer ( http://www.pianobuyer.com/spring15/40.html#map ) - it looks to me that it has both B Bechstein and Konzert Schimmels in the same tier. The key is to buy the piano you like (balanced with available $$$).

In 1980, I bought a Nissan from a small town dealer who also sold Mercedes Benz. He had a very nice Mercedes waiting for delivery. I remarked about it, and he told me the story. It was for an almost-elderly farmer from quite a distance away who ha
