Just straying off topic for a sec here to say that that piano of his had the lightest action I've ever felt! It made playing with my little bitty hands way easier!

Thanks Tom, I quite often have to adjust the pictures I download from PW .. and from other sites as well. I had already done so before I scrolled down here! :headslap:

Great picture, Kathy! Very much so.

[edit] ok, i opened this thread half hour ago and forgot to refresh it before I responded. Otherwise I would have inserted a "lucky dog" type comment about Plays.

Plays,

When I worked for the S&S C&A dept more than 30 years ago, that piano was sometimes in "the Basement" (where the C&A dept was located) for work. Franz M. (my boss) was the one who always worked on it. He adjusted the action and voicing specifically to M. Horowitz' desires. It was indeed extremely light. The voicing was also "unusual". Many top pianists who tried it thought it was very difficult to control. I remember one who referred to it as "squirrely"

Staying off topic--was that the original action he'd played or the one Steinway replaced it with on rebuild? They threw away his original, but I don't know just when. I've read many complaints from techs about that fact. The way his regulation has been described sounds quite like what I like--very light with letoff very close to the string, just short of blocking.

Just to let you all know, I'm capturing as many pictures as I can. I'll be compiling them all into a slide show album to send anyone who is interested. Just PM me.

Here's something I cropped out of a photo I had here at work.


I think I'll go home and play a medley of standards to say good-bye to the CR. This post makes me think of "I'll Be Seeing You", which was always the closing song for the mixers I went to as a college freshman, and a sentiment that I hope holds true for the CR members as well.

Will someone please tell me how to upload a picture onto PW. I can't get into my web space (my FTP settings have been wiped out and I can't remember them - ARGG!). [/b]

Kathy, haven't read through the thread yet but if no one has suggested it use:

http://www.picturehost.co.uk/

Apple was the one who first recommended the place. It is quite useful!

who is trying to search for your neat "hand warmer" trick you mentioned several months ago. Several folks mentioned that you HAD a good idea, but nobody could find the actual thread.

I posted what I THOUGHT you had suggested at that time, but I thought you might go over and straighten out what I may have been mistaken about.

thanks,
Bob [/b]
Thanks for the help Bob - I apprectiate it. If you could help me find the thread you posted it in, or could let me know what your hand warming trick is, that would be very healpfull Apple*. \:\)

*Sorry for getting off subject of thread.

Tkx Elena,

I'm not exactly Playboy material, which is why I chose a picture with my beloved, to add some beauty to the pic. I had to compete with the rest of you somehow!

Hey gryph, not so my friend! Your thread is one of the most successful ones in the entire history of the CR! (which I have downloaded)

I'll try to wait till the very end before downloading mine to give everyone a chance to post, if they wish to do so.

Gawd Lucy, you are soooo lucky! Wacky is a hunk. You aren't hard on the eyes either.

Kluurs, you're a fine looking man! Can I call you sweetie?
