When pianist Murray Perahia injured his finger in 1990, he sought solace in Bach. But now he’s making a return to the Romantic repertoire and in the July issue of BBC Music Magazine he tells us why. Meanwhile pianist Olli Mustonen heads to Hamburg with the enviable job of selecting 62 brand new Steinways for the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama – find out how he got on in this month’s issue. Not all pianos have such a happy fate, however, as we find out in our look at keyboard catastrophes.
