Johannes Brahms: Intermezzo Op.116 No.6
Strictly Work in Progress.
Recorded on an 1887 Steinway D using four omni condensers, one pair right at the piano and one pair back in the room. Recorded, mixed and edited with Ardour, Audacity and kdenlive.
The piano is still a diamond in the rough, needs full work on regulation and voicing.

Recorded on a freshly restored (not refurbished or rebuilt) unique Steinway D from 1887, hammers are original, have a little wear and need voicing. Dampers need regulation. Piano has a third front duplex scale and bridge pins at an angle, so strings within a unison have a different speaking length. Action is all original, soundboard is original with some careful repairs and original coating. CI...

To my knowledge this is the only surviving Steinway D built between 1884 and 1892 that still is in its original condition. It has carefully been restored (not rebuilt, refurbished or completely stripped of its innards.) Original set of hammers, original 1887 action. Fully intact original bridges, carefully refined shellac surface, one-piece ivory keys (with CITES certification) and two outstand...

Right now it's just two rugs with long fibers, foam casters for the leg wheels. Above all it's a 2cm layer of foam elements between ribs (soundboard) and the wooden structural element as part of the rim to keep the whole ...

    I am fortunate to have become the owner of a Model IV built 1900. Sold by the London Bechstein dealer and has been in the US for at least several decades. Mahogany case. Restored (year unknown). I was amazed upon hearing the unique " european " sound/overtones/ resonance that I have heard from Bechstein/ Bosendorfer etc in the UK , Germany, Austria. I wrongly attributed this difference to room/ concert hall acoustics or possible tuning or voicing by EU technicians. Other makers, including Steinway now sound comparatively harsh or weak, especially in higher registers. The action is light and very responsive. It is way above my grade/level but has inspired me to, one day, deserve this masterpiece.

      If the London dealer is JS then you have a factory rebuilt piano with all its innards replaced with modern material, from action, hammers, felt to polyester finish. Mine is a true restoration with all parts original including the tied action and a shellac finish.

    Thank you for posting a time-corrected version of this. Only w/ perfect synchronicity can we see the perfect incision of his pulse, and how CK would move 'ahead of the beat' from time to time. It allowed room for rubato of every sort, and music-making of a sort hardly ever seen anywhere. This was the first concert I ever saw him conduct. It changed forever my notion of what great conductors could do. I suspect it was the same for thousands of others.

    She played it only once and it was right of her to do so... I don't think this heavy and overlaboured piece suits her... the First suits her much better! It was only at great insistence from Barenboim that she agreed to do this, as Strauss' Burlesque too. I remeber hearing Claudio Abado begging her for years to learn th Burlesque. So eventualy she did it only for him. And that was a great shame because the Burlesque is a wonderful concert-piece.
