piano transport and tuning

Recommended Posts

A separate, though related, question.

Apparently Gasset's piano was tuned to A=442. Since the CSYO players are used to 440, and some of them have perfect pitch, I wonder how much of a problem it is for various instrumentalists to cope with a change of this sort.

Coincidentally, I was at a strings master class recently, and Peter Cropper commented that, though the piano being used for accompaniment was tuned to 442 because it was about to be used in Europe, almost every string player that day hd started tuning sharp of the piano.
