It sure feels nice to get a piano that just instinctively fit, doesn't it?

It's such a luscious piece, too!

May I ask which orchestra you played with in that video?

This is a windband version. it`s Sociedade Musical Gouveense from Portugal. We just recorded it on CD. The CD version is much better than this performance and i recorded in a Steinway piano also very good and with a beautiful sound!!!

Thanks for your reply, i hope you liked it. This CF was really easy to play, i just felt that i could get a little more power but it`s a piano tha is not played that often.

Thank you for the info regarding the wind band.

I haven't been exposed to that many CF. The only CF that left an impression had its hammers replaced with Renner. While I liked it, I'm not sure if that's representative of CF pianos because of the hammer change.

Thank you, too, for sharing the video! I do like it. thumb

Thanks a lot. i`ve played in yamaha pianos for a long time, but CF and C7 is a totally diferent world. The one i really don`t like is C6.
I read that you have a kawai too. Is it tail? mine is upright (no room for tail, have to practice in school). I played in a tail kawai in Italy and it seemed to have a hard keyboard...

Yes, I have a Kawai, "tail." Indeed, earlier Kawai pianos have "harder" keyboard. The new ones, with Millennium III, not as "hard."

I'm just an amateur, but if you'd like to hear what my Kawai sounds like, I have recordings here:

Hey Ax,

Beautiful music. smile Enjoyed your playing immensely.
Each of the pianos sounded wonderful in it's own unique way.
Of course, in my non-biased laugh opinion, I liked the tone of the RXA the best. smile

Thanks for sharing.

Cordially,

Bear

Well, i think the quality of the microfone that capture the piano tone can really make a diference in a recording seccion as well as the acustic (real or added). I did a studio recording in a Steinway about 6 months ago and it dosen`t sound as well as the live instrument. Sound editing can also do a lot for the sound of the piano. I can only compare pianos when i play on them. Even so, in a good recording we can alway identify Steinway sound or Yamaha.

Thak you very much for your replies!!!

Good recordings, Dosen`t sound like an Amateur... Fantasy sonata of Baw seems to be a very hard sonata (difficult toccata). I liked the recording!!! Congratulations!
