4/26/2023
For this episode, I invited and interviewed Hannah Reimann: Pioneer & Advocate of Stretto Pianos and Creator of the International Stretto Piano Festival and Stretto Piano Concerts. Ms. Reimann was featured on the front page of the Wall Street Journal, described as a "musician on a mission to make the world safe for small pianists."According to paskpiano.org (PASK = Pianists for Alternatively Sized Keyboards), recent research into pianists' hand spans shows that: Over 50% of adults have hand spans that are too small for the conventional keyboard. About 87% of women and 24% of men have hands that are too small for the current-sized keyboard. Children are currently forced to learn on an instrument designed for men with large hands. Given a choice of keyboard, around 75% of adults would most likely choose a smaller size! After all, our struggles as pianists may not be because of our shortcomings but the wrong-sized keyboard we've been practicing and performing.In this episode, Ms. Reimann will take us through the world of Stretto Pianos and introduce us to its thriving community. We will discuss topics as follows: 🎵 The definition/description of a Stretto Piano 🎵 Brief lesson on the history of pianos – how the sizes of the piano and width of the key have increased and standardized by the 1880s. 🎵 Acquiring a patent and building Stretto Pianos 🎵 Ms. Reimann's 30-year journey of promoting Stretto Pianos.

He also explained the distinctive characteristics of Argentine tango music and shared the secrets to playing tango piano music stylistically.
