information about a wide variety of subjects.
I was a producer of the International concert series Amorina Recitals
between 1986Ė2004. Photos of primarily the international artists can be seen
from the 90 concerts.
a professional pianist. There are pictures of my several concert-tours
to Russia, Belo-Russia, Holland, Norway and from Sweden. Here are also pictures
of my teacher Roberto Szidon
(1942Ė2011). In due time there will even more samples of my playing
on the download page.
present project is the Well Tempered Clavier book I by
Bach. I have written about the music and there will later be samples of my
playing from the work. This is an ongoing project, a labour of love for this
music, which Iíve come to appreciate more and more over the years.
work in a studio and also teaching sound engineering at a High School is
reflected in the chapter about how to record or more exactly, "what
to record". There is also a section devoted to my speakers
and some facts concerning their technical features. The comparison with common
"monitor" speakers will give you a better understanding of how to
differentiate between quality and non quality speakers.
connection with sound recording, there are pages on the
acoustics of the two big concert halls in Stockholm with explanations on how
to interpret the architectural design. These facts will help you understand how
any hall or room will affect our listening, playing or recording.
pages are devoted to making your listening to music more rewarding or "the
art of concentrated listening". In these pages I include some new
findings and a discussion about brain research in music. The research, at the
Royal Technical School about music as a language, defines the natural rules
and also addresses the problem of presenting the music language properly.
Further on I might also present a theory with an overview, of what musical
matters are easy to discuss and which are much more difficult to define.
an experienced piano tuner I have come across a few common misconceptions about
tuning a piano. It concerns the lack of compatibility between the theoretical
and the practical sides of tuning; the stretching of the tuning depending of the
stiffness of the strings that produces inharmonicity in the harmonics of any
tone. The misconceptions concerns mismatch between the theoretical temperament
and what one actually has to do with the tuning in real life. The Well
tempered tuning and its history as well as Bach's personal development of his
tuning, as well as the
history of the piano, its regulation and manufacturing is presented.
of the pages are devoted to Slot
car racing, a very rewarding hobby for anyone interested in driving. On the
download pages you can find some statistics of our races at SSC.
included some facts about lectures that Iíve been
giving over the years. Iíve talked about the history of piano with sound
examples from Cristoforiís, Mozartís, Beethovenís, Lisztís and others
pianists pianos. Another lectures venture on the recording of acoustic
and the tuning of the piano, at other times Iíve ventured into subjects mentioned above.
there are pages of my father Rune Lundmark
a professional artist.
(I have for personal resons removed the pages of my wonderful wife Tanja).
are also invited to look at some more artistic or to some perhaps peculiar pictures
from different places in the world.
note that on
these pages you will find some rather critical comments on the situation for
Classical music in our society. Some of you readers might ask yourself, why such
an attitude is necessary or even appropriate ... The simple truth is this: in order
to change anything, to work for an improvement of a less than
ideal situation, you must pin-point the problem and then present arguments for
change. This cannot be achieved without publicly addressing these problems
and faults. To stay silent is to accept the present situation!
note the very important difference between negativism and querulousness on the
one side and analytical, albeit critical attitude on the other.
The former will lead to nothing constructive, the latter is a prerequisite for
I want to extend my warmest thanks to Dr. Michael Habermann and my brother, the journalist JŲrgen Lundmark, for language corrections and invaluable suggestions.
