If I'm not mistaken the KS models were made in the later 1970s / early 1980s. They were the main line of Kawai upright pianos, very high quality. But after this many years, condition and history mean much more than original 'specs.' Have the piano checked by an independent techn...

I have heard Horowitz live at least ten times. I stood in line at the Met and stood in the back when I was a student every time he was there. I traveled to Boston when he played there. There was nothing like Horowitz, even in his 80s. The Rachmaninoff was considerably worse l...

So true. It is so easy to play blindingly fast ornaments on my clavichord whose key dip is 2mm and downweight of 5gm. I have to modify the ornaments, or play the piece more slowly on my piano. Both sound historically accurate though, given that Bach didn't seem to care what in...

One of my compositions sort of has a sad story to it. One day, a bird (a sparrow, I think) accidentally flew into the house, and on the way out flew against the window. It didn't die yet, but was hurt and could no longer fly. I picked it up, tried to get it out of the house, bu...

I recall that one of the changes leading up to the RX-2 was a change to the plate to make room for rear duplex. The very last of the KG-2's had rear duplex though that was not present originally. While the RX-2 has numerous changes and upgrades from the KG-2, the transition f...
