Wow, looking forward to listen and it will be interesting to hear the Steinway B in context. What an exciting project!

I think it's almost too late, it's 6:30 PM UTC.

Thanks but next time a message one day before the show would be great.

The currently playing piece is an arrangemant of the famous first movement of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata on the theme of Happy Birthday by pianist Nelly Ress.

We didn't write it in the program.

Thank you for a great concert, my applauses to all the musicians! I really admire your project and I think the result is great. My personal favorites was the Kreisleriana, The Arpeggione sonata and the Fauré nocturne (but all the pieces was great playing and singing). I have heard the arpeggione sonata with many different instruments but never with cimbalom, amazing! And Pianoteq really suited that music (the Steinway B I suppose?). Kreisleriana was amazing with great playing and sound, was that the Steinway D? And the last Fauré nocturne- wow! Very beautiful. I'm little puzzled about what piano that was. I believe it wasn't any of the Steinways? It had a lighter treble and a more nasal upper bass so my guess would be the Steingraeber, possibly the Bechstein (I don't know that one that well). Great work!

Very interesting project, congratulations.

Do you have any details regarding how the pieces were performed/recorded?

Kind regards,
James

Imagine! Eleven top composers ... Franck, Chopin, Schumann, de Falla, Messager, Bach, Mozart, Schubert, Ysaye, Fauré ... all smeared by having their works performed on Pianoteq. frown

Why should one aspire to the supposed ideals of a few dead folks? I'm not even sure these ideals should be attributed to such creative geniuses in the first place.

It's widely reported that when composers play their own music, they don't follow things like dynamic and expression markings as originally written... Performances are unique and individual. Improvisation is a thing.

Even acoustic pianos are unique. The same piano doesn't even sound the same, day to day. Are dead people rolling in their graves over modern creative possibilities and expression afforded by Pianoteq? Probably not...

Actually, the thought of those composers rolling over in their graves is precisely what I was thinking.

Hello Mac,

With the greatest respect, why the negativity?

Even if one does not appreciate the tonal characteristics of Pianoteq, I believe we can still be respectful of the efforts of the organisers and participants in realising this event.

Kind regards,
James

Not a good look, Mac.

Expressing an opinion is one thing.

Just being nasty is another.

It was a joke. Perhaps I should have turned that frown upside-down?

Works smeared by Pianoteq? it's quite silly to say actually. Imagine how smeared their works were over broken down used instruments of the period[s] in the salons and living rooms. Most of all the pianos I had to learn on and play were used and quite worn uprights, talk about smearing. I had 2 grands in my 70 years plus and both had issues [which is why I could afford them]. Perfection is a goal and always far from reality, for most of us. Pianoteq, despite the heckling of others, is light years ahead of the instruments most poorer families could afford, and a great option to get people to practice and play.

We had the chance to meet Aleksandra Dzenisenia who is a wonderful musician and who has had the opportunity to work several times with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra.

To answer your question, we exclusively use the Steinway B for '' live recordings ''. I think it is the ideal piano for that in this context for a more intimate atmosphere.

Only the last piece arranged on Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata is a '' studio recording '' made with the Grotrian Concert Royal.

Usually, we broadcast '' studio recordings '' in our playlist, and we use different pianos (Steinway D, Bechstein, Grotrian Concert Royal, etc.).

Best,

Michael

I think we all should be prepared to stump up more for this worthy product. It's far too inexpensive!

Thanks for your comment James,

Our recordings are all made with a specific sound processing technique that I have developed.

Pianoteq's original sound is actually very good and there is nothing to change about that. I'm just trying to make the sound more realistic in the context of the recording.
It involves a lot of different things and processes.

Best,

Michael
