What do you think? For a concert, how high is the proportion of the tuners work?

There are really two opinions on that. Most piano technicians believe that by giving the artist the best prepared instrument as possible, the performance will be the best possible. But a great pianist can make any piano sound good. There are many, many recordings of great music on out of tune pianos.

My feeling is that all of the stage crew, including the piano tech, are there to make the artist feel at ease. It's as much psychological as anything else.

Last Sunday I had a group of artists whose company I had enjoyed several times before. We all had a great time together before the show, and I think the show went better because of it.

So is it. For the audience is also the brand of the piano very important.

I don't think I ever see the brand of piano advertised around here. Apparently the promoters don't consider that information to be important to the audience.
