Exemples de sonorité

"La pédale Harmonique offre aux pianistes une nouvelle texture sonore, qui modifie l'enveloppé sonore pour de nombreux styles de musique, du baroque à la musique contemporaine et au Jazz. C'est comme si des compositeurs comme Ravel ou Debussy avaient toujours imaginé leur musique avec une pédale harmonique. Mais c'est aujourd'hui, enfin,  que FEURICH a réussi à reproduire cette merveilleuse nouvelle invention. La pédale harmonique ajoute sur la palette les couleurs qui manquaient pour représenter pleinement leur imagination musicale sur un piano moderne."

music gliding here from a very asian sounding theme with fourths, to an impressionistic french first bridge, followed by key change segues and more verses without ever leaving the sense of 'a rainy day'... mayumi's composition is masterful like sakamoto, and paul's gift of sound and expressive playing this FEURICH Invention make this upload truly a first on utube. i pray both of these artists realize their generosity toward the rest of us, and are recognized as they deserve.

I first thought, this "magical sound" is a sort of electronically added reverb. But then I googles for "pédale harmonique". Wow, that's an interesting invention! I don't know any piano, which has this 4th pedal. And btw. a very nice piece!

interesting to watch the inside of the piano during the performance... perhaps seeing how the harmonic pedal works..... a tutorial as to this elegant composition with the invention would reveal the magic behind the sound...

I just love the resonance. You must feel like you're 'bathing' in the sound. Wonderful video Paul.

You as a composer would especially appreciate it. We all have this harmonic resonance on our pianos but it is overshadowed by the damper sustain. That 'sympathetic resonance' is a hidden sound which is like a delicate pencil drawing in 2H. I think there are exciting possibilities for new compositions for this particular effect - hope you will consider writing something one day - that would be wonderful!
