Therefore, the effective denominator in the equation for fnat gets smaller, the
numerator gets larger, and the fundamental frequency increases. The higher
partials increase even more because the wavelength λ is smaller and a tighter
bend is needed. The previous paragraphs present a couple of attempts to explain
physically why a stiff string exhibits higher-pitched overtones (or partials). There
are others in the book Pianos Inside Out by Mario Igrec. An alternative discussion

But off in a corner was a little workshop area, and inside there was an old black
man named Lawrence J. Cook. He'd been there since the '20s, and he knew
player pianos inside out; he was the repairman for them. Well, I went through my
same spiel, and he said, "Sure," and he put it on, ran it, and didn't bat an eyd And
that was how I heard it for the first time. I asked him if I could bring it back with a
tape recorder and record it, and he said yes. So I came back in the next day or

Once that possibility also failed to materialize, the composer may have reworked
the material into a piece for two pianos, a medium with which he was quite
comfortable. While it seems perfectly reasonable to use the music in a new form
rather than forsake it entirely, it also suggests that the original scores Stravinsky
wrote for all these unrealized projects were not so integrally bound to their film
plots; otherwise they may not have been so easily disassembled and rewritten as

My own happened around the same time as the Bernstein-Comden-Green
episode, with my first score. It was scheduled for a week's performances at what
is now the Cami Hall on 57th Street in New York. (That was then considered very
élitist offBroadway, and both score and book were outlandish fantasy.) Since we
were doing the production on a shoestring budget, I myself had arranged the
score for two pianos and percussion and was leading the show from the piano.

But, unless such reductions are by a Franz Liszt, who knew both music and the
piano inside out, one can see little reason to commit them to a record. Generally
speaking, symphonies are not pianistically conceived and the piano is a poor
substitute for the symphony orchestra. On such grounds, I was not exactly thrilled
at the prospect of having to listen to Brahms's Third played on two pianos by as
many pianists. Nor did the knowledge that the arrangement was Brahms's own
help the ...

One of the features of such a well-equipped studio as Abbey Road was that since
electronic effect machines had still to be invented, the empire owned vast
quantities of instruments that were scattered around the studios. Bell pianos,
Hammond organs, clavinets, tympani, gongs, triangles, Chinese blocks, temple
bells and wind machines were there to be used (and can be heard throughout
Piper and A Saucerful Of Secrets, as well as, I believe, numerous Beatles records
). An extensive ...

about his book when he visited The Piano Quarterly offices recently. The ensuing
conversation may be of interest to anyone owning a piano or intending to buy
one in the future. Robert J. Silverman: I would assume that piano dealers know
their pianos inside and out Larry Fine: I wish it were so. Many piano dealers know

I heard pianos playing and there were voices singing behind the other closed
doors. The sound of music came from everywhere on the office floor. I knocked
on the door that had a sign that read: Mighty Three Music. A female voice said, “
Come in!” And stated, “Hello! I'm Mary Smoatries.” I quickly replied, “Hi!” I told her
that I was there to see Earl Shelton. Then, the guy I met in front of Enon Baptist
church suddenly appeared out of the next office. I told him about my songs. And
