Given that you plan to move within 12 months, most definitely don't buy an acoustic piano until after you're in your new home. The moving costs would be a waste of money. Start with a good digital, which you can find used in the $1k - 2k region. P

Yes - beautifully presented indeed !!! This prelude is more difficult than it sounds - primarily due to the LH passages, which (in my own experience) don't fall under the hand very comfortably. None of that inherent awkwardness is evident in your

There are some waltz tropes. The lyrical, in which the melody takes the lead, but also the moto perpetuo, with whirling, rapid figuration that gives a sense of excitement, even giddiness. There is also a convention on the piano, not always followe

Alpine Hearing Protection are also good. They provide the option of high, medium, and low acoustic filter settings. I have mild tinnitus and since using them, I've noticed I get ringing in my ears much less often.

Here's another perspective... If having an accurate acoustic tone is important, you should obviously go for an acoustic. However, the better digitals generally sample several concert grands as well as a number of other grands such as "Parlour
