    Arrow AUTHORIZED STEINWAY Synced to Video - Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No 1

    Here is a video sync that DPDan did with the Authorized Steinway.


    (Press Play button)

    DPDan took the video of a piano performance by Nairí Grigorián and synchronized a MIDI file using the Authorized Virtual Concert Grand. What you will see is a real pianist and orchestra playing but what you hear is a synchronized MIDI-mock-up using the Authorized Steinway (and GPO & GOS). Dan did an amazing job!


    The artist is Nairí Grigorián is an internationally acclaimed pianist from Armenia and performs throughout the world, is a professor of piano, and a judge of various piano competitions.

    There may have been some anomalies in the conversion from a 100+ MB video file and the redaction. Please let me know how this can be improved.

    Thanks to DP Dan for putting this unique and masterful synchronization together and many thanks to Nairí Grigoriá for permission to use this video.

    Enjoy!

    That is just astonishing

    I would love to have the skill and patience to be able to do such a masterful job, both in creating the mock-up, and in the Syncing.

    Congratulations DPDan Loved watching and listening to this performance.

    Cheers...

    I will be honest here.

    This piece is one of my favourites (from the top 200 or something! ) Dan is doing great justice to the piece. The syncing is phenomenal and the expression and rendering are astonishing! GPO and GOS sound very very good and no question about the Steinway it sounds stunning!

    I do however have a tiny bit of question/suggestion/objections, which I hope will be seen as kind as they are.

    I found the volume of the woods at around 03:00 a bit loud for my taste (but this is personal).

    A bit more objective maybe is that I felt the piano was in a different room (reverb wise) from the orchestra. It seemed to be... 1 meter from the mic (1 meter is of course an aproximation, no idea if it is 1 or 10 in reality), while the orchestra started at 6-7 meter away from the mic... At least my impression from the two times I heard/saw the piece.

    Gary: maybe making the file a little larger would help? Although it looked great as I saw it (twice) if you do want a better quality with current Internet speed it wouldn't be trouble to have it a twice the size, I imagine... just an idea.
