I did think it has an odd echo from some parts of the room. but I don't know about the position of the piano since I didn't play it.

Needs to be edited. Nontrivial since there was som rotation. The problem was, though you had a camera tripod, I hadn't thought to bring my camera mount/bracket, and as you might recall, I tried using tape which caused sagging over time. I will edit and see how it is.

OK. Perhaps if you do get it edited I would be interested to hear it.

Philip, have you decided yet about having Blüthner rebuild your concert grand?

Yes. I am not going to proceed.

My thinking goes somewhere alond these lines: The pieno will form part of my estate in the not too far distant future. When it does will it be of more value if rebuilt than "as is"? The answer is yes. If I do have it rebuilt will it be worth more if rebuilt by the manufacturer. Again we get a yes. Will it be worth more than current value plus the cost of rebuilding comes up with a no. Would me executors prefer cash to the piano. Of course that is a yes as well! I don't need it to be rebuilt. It is good enough as it is and I have the others to play, especially the C Bechstein B in the music room which is excellent. So why rebuild the Bluthner? There is no point.

I hear someone's 'inner accountant' speaking wink

I compartmentalize sensibility.

The piano department is not really in the sensible thinking section.

The inner accountant is always fairly near the surface.

As 2020 is jazz piano, I am looking at ways of having an evening in the ballroom with tables and chairs rather than the traditional afternoon concert with rows of seats.

Something of the sort. I always fancied one of those doors with a small door at head height so you can snarl at people visiting and ask them for the password.

My wife was cleaning up her iPhone storage and found out the following:


It was an after-party ad-hoc impro I embarrassed myself with, literally minutes before we left. I had not been playing jazz for years at the time and most of chord-scale relations were gone... But that Bechstein (right, Philip?) is very inspiring!

Looking good!

Careful--One false move and you'll be down the stairs and stored in the cellar with the mysterious bags full of lumpy items!

You wouldn't want to be in the ballroom at present. I don't heat it, so it's cold in there.

Veska got the winter carpets down yesterday. One of them has improved the acoustics in the music room.
