Also, would it be wise to keep the lid of my piano closed when playing or am I just being paranoid now.. Sounds so much better when it's open.

Back to the OP's question - I think that, unlike with fingering (unless you're Krystian Zimerman, who have a few different fingerings to choose from for very piece he plays, to suit the venue ), a pianist should be quite flexible with his pedal us

I think Hakki brings up a great point. When you get to the point of discussing temperament and the details of tone and touch, you're talking mostly about high-end instruments in well-funded situations. The vast majority of the population is working

I could hire a Copenhagen tech, but it is important to me that (s)he is passionate about doing as precise and good a job as possible, even if the piano is not great. I have an idea that many techs would just coarsely regulate it to within some standa

As a film lover, I thought I'd try writing my own piece over one of my all-time favorite films: Kikujiro. For those of you who don't know the film, the story is about an aging street thug and a young kid who find themselves in an unlikely friendship

Guitar Center has a used PX-350 in Pasadena -- $550. That's going to be hard to beat. You can take a look through: guitarcenter.com/usedgear and see if you can do better. There's a P155 also, and probably more that would suit you -- lots of dept

With metronome markings, I always take them with a grain of salt. You can use them as a gauge to get an idea of what the composer wanted (assuming metronomes were around then and the composer indicated the marking and not the editor - and in this cas

Once again, so we all know what we're talking about, the three pedals on most modern grands are, from L to R: The una corda ('soft' pedal); the sostenuto; the sustaining pedal (damper pedal). That's the common usage in English. Including American-E
