We've become so acclimatized to the Steinway D sound, both German and American, recorded and in performance, that our ears may not always like hearing something different (whether it is better or worse, such things being in the end quite "subjec

It was Anders Ericsson's research about practicing that I praised in my blog and referenced in your link. (dating back to 1993) I did not agree with the Meta researcher who held an opposing point of view on the podcast.. (Dr. Brooke Macnamara)

This is a wonderful performance -- the turbulence and tenderness so characteristic of early Scriabin come shining through in your interpretation. I'm not sure why you think of this as a work in progress. Only a few false notes here and there; when

I think it's pretty dependent on the child and personality. I started lessons at age 5. My mother was a good pianist (she played Rach 3 when in her teens), so I had plenty of encouragement. My teacher at the time gave me a notebook to record my pr

Not sure about the weight issue. Older pianos tended to be pretty heavy. My 1896 6'4" Hallet and Davis weighed nearly 1100 pounds. It was built like a lumber yard. The same with the larger Mason and Hamlin's. More modern pianos with better

I'm looking to find an Everett console to buy/refurbish. I have read that some older pianos have a unique action, sometimes referred to as an "X-type". Any idea when this was used? Is it a problem in terms of repair? If so, could I easily r

Just thinking, as someone who plays flute, that the other instrumentalists may often be frustrated by not having access to the whole score. They might wish for it, but it's not always that easy to obtain, especially on short notice. For workshops, ba

I agree with the 'why not' mostly. However it can be annoying when a thread is resurrected by someone who fails to realize they're replying to an old thread where for instance the 'facts' or circumstances have changed since (which is the case here).
