This musician has 19 rescue cats, and they all love their piano-playing human more than anything. But there’s also a wonderful story behind the music.

The Klavins Vertical Concert Grand introduces a new dimension of dynamics and timbre to the world of pianos, creating an instrument entirely without compromise.

The Klavins Vertical Concert Grand introduces a new dimension of dynamics and timbre to the world of pianos, creating an instrument entirely without compromise.

The M450i is for those for whom the supposed best never has been good enough, for those with limitless creativity who seek new possibilities. The vertical construction of the M450i enables it to be integrated directly into fixed structures, much like an organ is permanently installed into a concert hall in order to maximize the instrument’s sonic potential.

The Klavins M450i is especially well suited for concert halls, larger private dwellings, art centers, modern museums, churches, luxury cruise ships, and the like.

The piano ceases to be a piece of furniture, or a machine, when it is played. The player brings it to life, and the great thing about the piano is that even the most novice player can get a pleasant sound out of it.

And when the music is over, the lid is closed, and the piano returns to its somnolent position, silently crouching in a corner of the room, once again a piece of furniture.

Oh, but what a marvellous, magical piece of furniture!

In 2006, Derek Amato hit his head hard on a concrete floor in an accident. Although he suffered a severe concussion that resulted in partial deafness and memory loss, the experience unlocks the musical genius in him. He had never played the piano.

Now, he became a pianist and composer, going on to play beautiful pieces to various audiences. He is one of the rare few individuals who experience what is known as acquired savant syndrome.

I Googled the dimensions of a keyboard, drew the keys on to a piece of paper and stuck it on my desk. I would click notes on an online keyboard and “play” them back on my paper one – keeping the sound they made on the computer in my head.

After a while I could hear the notes in my head while pressing the keys on the paper. I spent six months playing scales and chord sequences without touching a real piano.

Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms!

Coined by Peter Cornelius in 1854, which refers to Bach, Beethoven, and Berlioz.

Later in the century, the famous conductor Hans von Bülow would substitute Johannes Brahms for Berlioz.

Bülow had been attracted to the idea of a sort of Holy Trinity of classical music for a number of years, writing in the 1880s: "I believe in Bach, the Father, Beethoven, the Son, and Brahms, the Holy Ghost of music".

Many old pianos are now being dumped, abandoned, neglected, smashed - even burnt. Why is this happening, and should we care?

"There are more and more pianos reaching extinction, needing to go to the graveyard."

Restorers often make the analogy with vintage cars - it is usually cheaper to buy new than rebuild, and keeping an old model going is more a hobby pursuit than a practical one.

Simply put, the motif is a musical fragment from which longer notes are put together.

Regardless of how they appear in the music score, motifs are an integral part of the composition. Although it makes up only a very small part of the overall composition it appears in, it is symbolic of the entire piece.

As we polished off our arrangement of Lewis Capaldi’s stirring song, “Someone You Loved,” we felt a strong need to find a way to express the emotion in our tune beyond the bow and the keyboard. We needed a poetic love story spoken without words, but with melodic motion.

Before our last note hardly had time to rest we contacted Charity and Andres, dance world superstars who caught everyone’s attention when they captured the first perfect score on “World of Dance.”

We had complete faith in these two artists, to tell the story that needed to be told. It turns out, Andres is likely going to be leaving for 2 years to serve a full time mission for his church. Charity is supporting him in this, but the two are experiencing intense bittersweet feelings regarding their impending partnership’s hiatus.

This is the story they told in dance to our music—a story of sadness, of support, of joy, of unity, of strength, of longing, and of unconditional love. The mastery in their choreography is unmatched and has the power to stir up tender feelings for someone you loved.
