I find him playing with such ease and control. Any thoughts?

He is an intermediate pianist.
His playing is restrained and limited.

These are some advertisement videos of the pianos that the store is selling.

But this Steingraeber & Soehne D 232 really sounds nice.

It sounds like out of some movie like a John Williams piece. I find his playing nice as well. I enjoyed it.

Care to elaborate? What changes need to be made such that his playing is not restrained and limited?

I was impressed with the sound of the 130 Cl (upright). For what the piece was, the pianist's playing was quite adequate.

His limitations showed up more in the Rachmaninoff (which Hakki linked to) where the fire and drama of the "Allegro molto e agitato" and, even more, of the "Prestissimo" sections were lost, most likely because of the pianist's limited technique. The grand's sound, though nice, was not particularly impressive to these ears.

Regards,

You asked for thoughts. You're getting thoughts.

I agree with Hakki. I'll add that my finding his playing limited and restrained doesn't mean that HE is limited or restrained inlife. It is just where he is with his playing currently.

I have no idea on how he could improve. I don't know him or his background or work ethic.

btw, I'm not a fine pianist, but I know what "free" sounds like. This is not "free".

Ah, that kind of clears it up for me. Thanks!
