There were 3 other Shigeru listings there, if you do a keyword search, btw. Good luck with the sale. Looks like the closest "competitor" is a 2009 SK-5 listed at $36k.

Hi, SiFi! Just listened to both "takes" -- agree with you that the 2nd version is more successful. For me, much more so -- the 1st sounds rather labored and "careful", whereas the 2nd sounds like you're much more confident in

Danio, I meant some piano tuners know only one way to tune a piano. A good tuner should have different ways appropriate for the piano, circumstance, venue, style of music, customer, budget, time available, etc. It's like the old saying. He has 20 y

Thank you for sharing this. First of all, I think the tempo is fine - personally I think it could even be a little broader. I know Argerich plays it fast, but when thinking about someone else's tempo, it's good to consider what led them to that concl

Actually, pianos are really hard to judge on the internet except perhaps for recent ones like Yamaha and Kawai. About 30 mins at a piano showroom with a variety of new and old instrument may blow away everything you imagined after all your research.

Piano presets are programmed to use the triple pedal properly, so you don't need to change them. It is quite simple to change them to do other things though.

That brings up an interesting question. How would a black-key glissando be notated? I read that a chromatic scale glissando is also possible. How would that be notated?
