Until enough pianists and technicians "teach" the piano industry to take innovation seriously, Hybrid Wire Scales will only be available from rebuilders. A lot of people in the industry have very hard heads and they dismiss innovative techn

The Vintage D is richer, sweeter and better finished - smoother - than the C7. The C7 has a certain tangy sparkle to in, lacking in the Galaxy Vintage D. They are both very nice indeed. The playing is beautiful and the test is shrewdly put together.

Well played! I played this sonate almost 20 years ago as an exam also. I remember the rithm being difficult to get right in the grave section as well. The metronome helps indeed. Try to get the feeling of the beat in your brain/body. At the broken

This is basically a written-out rolled chord, so you can be more creative than in a real polyrhythm. You might like the sound of the harmony created by certain RH notes sounding together with certain LH notes? or you could allow one hand's rhythm to

The second work is the transcripted one from WTC Book 2 No.16 for KOTO. http://www.geocities.jp/imyfujita/musicofgravity/koto2016.mp3 Koto has only 13 strings, and each string basically generates one tone. So there are only 13 tones.

I'm guessing that piano probably sold in the low to mid-20k range back when it was new. If it were in truly fantastic shape and you really liked it, that seems like a reasonable price for a K in a wood finish. Keep in mind that (at least in the US)
