Pianos Inside Out (454)
by Mario Igrec
The most exciting new piano technology book for many years, published in April 2013 to much acclaim. Here is an extract from the review in “Piano Technicians Journal” April 2013:
From the review by Stephen Brady, RPT, Journal Editor Emeritus
“Pianos Inside Out is certainly the most ambitious book on piano technology ever written, and very likely the most complete and successful. . . . It covers a very broad spectrum of piano technology topics in much greater depth than one would expect for a book covering such a wide range of topics.
“[The] chapter on touch, geometry, and playability is about as detailed and thorough as anything I’ve seen short of Walter Pfeiffer’s two books on action design.
“Igrec’s 164-page chapter on rebuilding could quality as a book all by itself. I believe this is the most comprehensive exposition on piano rebuilding I’ve ever seen anywhere.
“Buy this book. Read this book. You will be glad you did.”
