What makes a musician's sound, the instrument or themselves? In this volume we look at a group of musicians searching for their ideal sonic experience. Two great masters - Hamelin & Demidenko - showcase their dedication to the Steinway and Fazioli brands respectively. Chopin finalist Alexander Gadijiev is seduced away from his competition selected Kawai to the effortless elegance of the Fazioli. A spontaneous performance of Lizst's Dante Sonata - originally only possible on a Bechstein - is executed by Emmanuel Despax on Fazioli. And the loving repair of a previously decrepit Steinway overseen by Marco Fatichenti marks the beginning of a mission to find the perfect sound for his reimagining of Granados.
