Like a smooth shave.

It's much easier to bash a Steinway than it is to play one.

Guess what? They are also great razors for shaving! I know; I use one!

Cheers!

Renner did a study a few years ago that I think pretty conclusively proved that wooden-handled shavers still work better.

Would the piece happen to be called "A close Shave op. Gillette"

I don't think so, but you might be right; I'm not sure. Perhaps it's a never published transcription of a scena from Rossini's Il Barbiere di Siviglia!

Cheers!

Largo al factotum would have been perfect!

Gillett missed a clever tie in.

There are no pedal linkages and Bb is the only black key that's included in the rig. With those long transfer lever sticks, repetition must be quite slow. The long pull-up wires make the thing reminiscent of a spinet action. But all in all, I'm not sure whether it's CGI or practical. I'm leaning toward the rig being practical, but the track replaced with someone playing a real piano the normal way.

You are both wrong. It is obviously a piece by Fred Waring that has just been discovered unpublished - Sonata #5 for piano and razors,
