Currently the ‘us’ is the sole work of Graham Reid. Eventually I plan to include the contributions of other writers once the infrastructure of the site is complete. For over four decades I’ve been involved in various aspects of the music business including artist management, journalism, piano retail sales, teaching, and performing. I’ve done newspaper concert reviews and have had my writings appear in piano-related journals such as Clavier and the Piano Quarterly. I originally trained as a concert pianist, the most notable influences during my formative years being studies with Ricks Knudsen, and a memorable master class with Ivan Moravec.
I have performed recitals, chamber music concerts and done a two-piano tour with my wife. My wife and I lived in Europe for eight years and enjoyed travelling and hearing concerts in the great concert halls of Europe and Britain. I’ve also visited all the piano manufacturers in Europe and have spent time with some of the great piano craftsmen. The fruits of this extensive research will be born in a forthcoming book about pianos. I plan to offer this piano book, and other of my more extensive writings as downloadable books in the near future.
