This is the last part of the Waldstein Sonata played by Graham H. Jackson. His own grand piano is tuned to A=432, and to a system of tuning discovered by Maria Renold which allows nearly all the 5ths to be natural 5ths, resulting in a more resonant and satisfying sound than the usual tempered tuning but good earphones may help. Thanks for your attention… The piano he is performing on is not tuned to A=432….I hope you will find out what a difference this tuning of A=432 makes on your own terms, as it is, of course, not really possible to hear the difference on this, very nice – but limited, medium of You Tube.
