Some recent CDs that have become favorites: Chopin Concertos Janne Mertanen. Lovely performances of the two concertos. Mertanen has an exquisite touch. (His Nocturnes set is as essential as those of Moravec and Rubinstein.) Beethoven Concerto No.3

Sheet music has some value here, all you have to do is take a pencil and write your fingering numbers on it.

I like your composition. It seems a little sophisticated for beginners. But I like it. Seems to me it could also be expanded on somehow. It could be transformed into something not so beginner. But I really like it. David https://soundcloud.com/

That's one of life's great feelings, waiting for delivery of a new piano. But a lot of people would get lot of pleasure from a keyboard like that too.

I assume you have a 'line-in' on your PC? Then use cable from either one of the Phone jacks on the CVP-601, or the audio out, and connect to PC via 'line in'. As the 601 has a USB flash drive slot, it's an easy way to record directly, and without nee

If the piano has a black gloss finish, it may be possible to have the repairs done relatively inexpensively, provided the scratches are not deep. The Kawaai KG-2C would be similar in size to a Kawai RX-2. They are well regarded pianos, noted for thei
