I originally had Haydn E major (Hob xvi:34) but only recently picked up the Pathetique instead. My timing is about 5 for the Bach and around 3:30 for each of the other 3 pieces. I haven't started the Pathetique yet, so I'm not sure if this will put

I ordered one from the site that advertised here on PW. There were a few unfavorable reviews, but my piano cover is wonderful. It fits perfectly and is of nice quilted material. I paid extra for slits at the sides of the keyboard which makes it ea

I have had two recitals, though I would say that they were at Grade 2 and Grade 3 respectively, so not as challenging as others but challenging for me. I used to be a squash coach and a software trainer so I am very comfortable with being in front of

I think the Bach suite movements are so short that everyone would enjoy repeats even without variation, except maybe for the odd listener who's heard that very suite hundreds of times.

"Faith and begorrah," Mr. Carey, the concert was great! (I hope to get a copy of the recording.) It always irks me when people write off old pianos--as if a new Kawai with a hollow aluminum hammer rail and carbon fiber parts straight out

I find Cory KeyBrite to be completely and utterly useless. I spent $14 on a small bottle and it has done NOTHING more to clean my keys than a damp cloth with water does. In fact I wouldn't be surprised if Keybrite is nothing more than distilled wate

You could put a back cover on the piano and a couple of 50 watt Dampchasers with the low humidity dual humidistat. That way when humidity rises the piano has some moderation. Wood does take on humidity about five times as fast as it gives it up.

When I practice hands separate I keep the other one on my lap, so it's just natural to do that if it's idle for a very long time in a piece.

I like Morodiene's fingering. Depending on the effect you want, I might not repeat the same finger on a note (unless pedaled or you want the separation). If you want to try it without repeating, you can play 3-2 on the G, and 2-1 on the Eb and keep

Giancarlo, the CE220 is a very good digital piano, featuring Kawai's 'AWA Grand Pro II' wooden-key action. The wooden keys feel great to play, however the action technology itself is a few generations old now, and does not include features such as t
