C. Bechstein Resonances: Saleem Ashkar II (No. 13)



“I have spent the last 30 years every day several many many hours with a piano. So you develop an intimacy with the instrument, you develop a certain knowledge that is immediately. I touch a piano and I know if it speaks to me, if I can if there is a barrier, if the energy is flowing immediately or do I have to make adjustments and again part of it is objective and part of it is very subjective. And so basically I could choose a piano in two seconds.” – Saleem Ashkar
