Nice International Piano Competition adopts historical tuning
« on: December 02, 2019, 05:08:25 PM »
Nice International Piano Competition this year is the first to be adopting unequal temperament as the standard.
was the final concert this year and the competitors raved about what the instrument was able to do for them in their performances.

The increased resonance of the instrument removes the mush of the sustain pedal so that the pedal can enable much more singing, lyrical playing, and enables the original pedalling of Chopin and Beethoven to be used, holding down the sustain pedal for many bars.

Best wishes
