    Absolutely essential, even with the best instruments. When I was recording Pascal Rogé and friends in Paris, we had a world-class Steinway and a world-class piano tech on hand. “Saved” the sessions a number of times.

  • Erwin Poelstra says:

    One of the disadvantages of playing the piano — the action of the instrument is so complicated that it needs a specialist to adjust and regulate “small” things that can make a lot of difference in the performance. And unfortunately, I have the impression that very fine piano technicians are getting more and more rare…

  • Boring Fileclerk says:

    Tuning aside, it’s also important to have a well regulated piano.
