I freaking love Einaudi. I have insomnia and his work puts me right out. It's easy to understand why advanced players see his music as silly because there's not much to it on the score. But for those of us not quite at advanced levels it's excellen

The question is a tough one to answer in some ways, because it depends on the quality of the restoration. If it was me, and I was going to my friend's workshop, I'd take the Steinway. It would cost me about 30 percent more than buying a new Hailun,
