I have had similar reactions from local pianists and teachers. Modern pedagogy frowns on the use of gymnastic devices, citing likelihood of injury. While it is true that unthinking use of them has the potential to cause problems, the whole trick is to find the right way of going about it, but that is true of pianos anyway.

I've a lot in my "den," formerly our front room. Fortunately for my wife the lounge is twice the size.

Mister Upright, my first acoustic piano (if you don’t count the nameless upright in my parents’ basement fifty+ years ago), on the first — and tidiest — day in the Piano Cave, last June—

Stunning! I'm certain it sounds just as stunning as it looks. If I were to buy an upright that would be my only choice.

Thank you Music Me! We are still getting to know one another, so I’m not sure “stunning” is the effect quite yet. But Mister Upright certainly sounded stunning when an old friend who is a professional pianist got his hands on those keys! I have a lot to learn.... happily.

The audience is often known as Little Miss (the Burmese) and Mister Amiable (her striped not-so-short-hair American Shorthair pal). She likes to interrupt recordings, a habit for which she is also known as Miss “ECK!” He’s fairly deaf, but likes to sit close to the piano, so who knows what he hears? Those were my first Henles! I had recently started with my new teacher: “We will work on REAL music.” Therefore: Piazzolla!

Yes, if only there were a Henle for Piazzolla; too new I suppose.

What Piazzolla piano can you find? He is not piano-friendly at all.

Tonos Publishing is Piazzolla’s publisher and has piano scores of various pieces. They don’t say who made the arrangements; just list Piazzolla as the composer, so I suppose he approved? I have found some of these (including the Four Seasons suite and the Angel suite) through Elkin Music (distributor online) and Musicalion.com (Europe).

Amazon carries some books of piano arrangements of Piazzolla (search Piazzolla piano). The book put together by Philip Keveren looks good, for example, but I myself can’t play anything in it at more at more than a stumbling pace. Yet!
