Hey, Tony!~~ Several thoughts after scrutinizing your YouTube performance. 1) Have you ever had a chance to play Beethoven on a period piano? If not, I think your technique is perfect for it. You realize details in the score so perfectly, that I

Ethan, On wr's recommendation (and as a radio lover) I started with the WUOL version. I wish I had caught it live over the airwaves. Every composer needs a definitive interpreter, and as far as Alkan goes, you are he. Don't argue. Excellent work

I forgot to mention, I haven't played the RD 800 but have heard good things about it. I've played the CP4 and was underwhelmed with the feel. It wasn't terrible, but it wasn't great either, IMO.

Not to revive a dead thread or anything, but I stumbled across this thread and wanted to add my two cents. What I am realizing after a quick review of Synthesia 10, is that there is a fundamental flaw they would be hard pressed to fix - by only work

If I were you, I'd assign or write in the 1,2,3 and try to do without the 'ands'. Draw a dotted line up to the note involved. I write in the 'ands' if there is syncopation involved, plus eights, 16ths, dotted quarters etc. I had one number which

I don't think the technician did a recalibration before leaving, but I'm not sure because I was away for a couple minutes when he finished cleaning the keys. It seems the cleaning did not fix the loud note issue. I played the piano for several hours
