The first book ever focused specifically on the techniques required to be concert technician, providing detailed, practical advice for technicians on the artistry of tuning, regulating, and voicing for concerts.
This book is now hardcover, expanded 2nd edition.
Chapter 1: Preparing the Concert Piano includes topics such as a concert checklist and dealing with the unexpected (i.e. broken strings).
Chapter 2: Tuning for Concerts is about using tuning techniques and mastering environmental issues with the goal of achieving a "breathtakingly fine tuning".
Chapter 3: Regulating for the Artist is loaded with detailed text and photos of all aspects of grand regulation.
Chapter 4: The Art of Tone Regulation contains way more valuable information on voicing than seen elsewhere.
Chapter 5: Concert Subspecialties focuses on differences between the solo recital, chamber music, concerto performances, etc.
Chapter 6: The Human Factor delves into the technician as an artist.
