(*) - A digicital .... what's that?
One of the musical instruments at deKunstClub.nl is a Yamaha Clavinova digital piano. This can of course be played live - but it can also play (enhanced) midi. And that opens some interesting further possibilities.
Since 2002, the Minnesota International Piano-e-Competition has been run five times. In this competition, every candidate performs a number of works (partly specified, partly free choice) on a Yamaha Diskklavier. This is a top-of-the-range digital piano. The whole competition is very well organized and their website definitely is worth visiting! A very nice point in this competion is, that all performances of all contestants are recorded in Yamaha enhanced midi-files. And these are published on the website, too. Such files record the actual play of the candidate in the finest details of toucher, tempi, dynamics and pedals.
Those midi-files can be played on our digital piano. You then hear the performance, as it was during the competition, just as if you were in the audience at that occasion. In a digicital (digital piano recital) we play a selection of such contributions to the e-piano-competition. You hear the pianist and his ideosyncrasies - but the piano is unmanned ....
