TUNING AND VOICING
The first step in unveiling the clarity, warmth and beauty of a piano, dramatically changing the esthetic experience for both the player and the listener.
“Christopher Ris has an extraordinarily precise ear, tunes
impeccably, and is fully expert at everything from minor regulation
to full-scale rebuilding.”
All pianos need periodic attention to the more than 10 adjustments per note. A precise regulation brings a piano to it’s highest potential and gives the pianist the fullest range of expression.
“. . .his work on the action has made the touch so precise that playing softly on any note is a dream.”
“I am especially pleased with your work on the actions. Both pianos now “float” under the fingers in a way that is extremely unusual and very special indeed. For the greatly increased expressive possibilities I am very grateful. Those who play the Baldwin in concert are consistent in their praise of the instrument.”
Director, St John’s Episcopal Church Concert Series
“I now have a tremendous level of control when playing; the action allows very fine gradations of dynamic levels and tone quality.”
