    Was this the Steinway featured in the Chopin: Four Ballades played by Dr. Chang? I enjoyed this recording – both artistically and technically.

    It is a shame that so few Hi-Res classical piano recordings exist. Perhaps there could be an ‘Educators Series’ from AIX….

    That is, Hi-Res recordings of music (piano) professors from various tier-1 universities who have chosen to educate rather than perform professionally… So much talent waiting to be heard using the very best recording techniques…

    I hope you do not mind the proposal?

      Yes, it was. The Chang/Chopin project got a lot of very positive praise on the sound and the performance.
