Piano VS Grand Piano - Chopin Etude Op. 10, No. 8
« on: October 26, 2017, 03:22:20 PM »
I am finally home and I decided to do this fun video comparison between my upright Thurmer piano vs my C. Bechstein playing the Chopin Etude Op. 10, No. 8 :Dd Hope you`ll like it and best wishes! :)



P.S. First time recording with my new Zoom H5.. How do you find the sound?

Fine playing, as usual!  I really appreciate how you brought out the melodic qualities of this piece. 

The Thurmer is quite a respectable instrument considering its neighbor, and the C. Bechstein seems to inspire you to explore its resources.  At any rate, you shaped the piece very well having your musical choices suit the instrument it was being  played on. 

Have you tried placing the H5 further away from the strings?  I've used its predecessor (H4n) and your H5 does share some of the Zoom qualities I have observed in the H4n. 
Made a Liszt. Need new Handel's for Soler panel & Alkan foil. Will Faure Stein on the way to pick up Mendels' sohn. Josquin get Wolfgangs Schu with Clara. Gone Chopin, I'll be Bach
