Touch continues to amaze me. It is so communicative. I can tell by the way a student touches my piano that their piano at home needs tuning. When the at-home instrument is sounding at its best I can hear that, too.

It is a living demonstration of what Rubinstein once reportedly said, to the effect that pianists don't touch the keys; they touch the vibrations they hear in their heads.
