As a major milestone, Theme & Variations Piano Services celebrated their 30th Anniversary in 2015. Staffed by friendly, passionate and piano-loving people, Theme & Variations prides itself on its exceptional standard of expertise and customer care. With internationally qualified piano technicians and tuners, directed by one of the foremost piano technology authorities in the country, our knowledge, skill, service and expertise is second to none. Anita graduated from Sydney University as an architect and went on to a successful career working on a number of major commercial and residential projects.  She joined the architectural practice which completed the Sydney Opera House and worked on that major project for five years. Julian graduated from the Australasian School of Piano Technology in Melbourne, taught by senior Yamaha Technician Brent Ottley.
Ken graduated from the Conservatorium of Music’s Piano Technology Course with the highest marks of all graduates in 2006 and was immediately taken on board at Theme & Variations. Along with Ara, Nyree champions the cause of countless arts and community organisations along the east coast of Australia.  Nurturing the development and career of young musicians has always been a focus which has led to the formation of a Foundation by a group of key community members to assist young pianists.
AJ is a qualified and experienced piano technician and bass player.  AJ is a graduate of the Australasian Piano Technology Tuning School and the Queensland Conservatorium of Music, Griffith University.
Concert pitch is now fixed at A440Hz, a pitch recognized and adhered to internationally for many years (although the Berlin Philharmonic tune to A444 now, and a few of the Russian orchestras to A446).
Successive inventions had led to an increase in size and strength of pianos, leading in turn to an increasing ability on the part of the pianos to tolerate higher and higher tension and therefore higher pitches. Bechstein were very critical of the high pitches, and were concerned that constant raising and lowering of pitch was serving to destabilize their instruments, and quite rightly so: pianos cannot keep having their pitch changed arbitrarily, and the problem was so widespread that hiring firms would maintain different pianos at different pitches in an attempt to alleviate the stress of yo-yo tuning on their instruments. The CN25 offers a highly detailed acoustic portrait, employing Kawai’s proprietary Progressive Harmonic Imaging sampling technology to ensure smooth tonal transitions across the keyboard and throughout the entire dynamic range. The impressive CN25 features our highly-regarded Ivory Touch key surfaces This finely-textured material gently absorbs fingertip perspiration and oils to avoid slipping and provide greater playing control. Moisture is absorbed without dirt or grease permeating the key surfaces, allowing them to be easily wiped clean with a damp cloth.

The recorder on the CN25 allows up to three songs to be stored in internal memory and played back at the touch of a button.
IThe CN25 features three pedals – soft, sostenuto, and damper (with half-damper capability). As with a grand piano, the viewing angle of the CN25 music rest can be adjusted to suit the performer’s playing position or laid flat to provide a level surface for notating scores. The bridgea€™s harp-like cable stays have been cleverly integrated into the festivala€™s logo, where they represent the frame and strings of a grand piano.

Having supplied pianos to the top concert halls, schools and teaching institutions in the country for over 30 years, they set the benchmark for the highest number of new Steinway & Sons piano sales for any individual dealership in Australia. He went on to operate as a self employed technician, working at venues such as Federation Square, Melbourne Town Hall, Sidney Myer Music Bowl and The Falls Music Festival. Ken currently services pianos all around Sydney and has trained with the Steinway Academy in Hamburg to complete an advanced technician’s course to further his knowledge on service and restoration of pianos. These recordings can serve as convenient self-assessment tools for players of all skill levels. The new Grand Feel Pedal System reproduces the individual weighting of each of the three pedals of the Kawai EX concert grand. And it was with an exposition of the nuts and bolts of the piano that the festival opened at the Piano Academy of Ireland in Rathgar on Thursday. If he were just a tuner, he wouldna€™t have begun his exposition with the piano partly dismantled, and the keyboard and all its associated mechanics a€“ collectively known as the action a€“A ready to slide in and out.
Currently they have a large range of pre-loved pianos of all different makes and models, therefore making a trip to Theme & Variations an ideal destination for the perfect piano. Julian was hand selected by Ara to join the Theme & Variations team at the start of 2014.
The speaker was piano technician Martin Walsh, a man you might have seen at work if you are a regular concert-goer, and someone whose work you are almost sure to have enjoyed, even if you have never even heard of him. As well as taking care of pianos across many private homes, educational institutions and performance venues around Sydney, Ara also helps the many pianos that come into Theme & Variations find the right place to call home. He has worked on a production line for pianos, at the end of the process where the instruments get a final tuning and checkover.
His advice a€“A and bear in mind that he was addressing an audience mainly of aspiring professional pianists a€“A was not to buy a production line piano, but to go for a handcrafted model, even though he gauged the price difference for apparently similar models as a factor of three.

The handcrafted product, he said, would not only sound better, but give less trouble, and last longer.
He fielded questions about the merits of Hamburg-manufactured Steinways over New York-manufactured ones (he is fully on the Hamburg side, as most Europeans are), offered advice about whether to play with the lid up or down (up, up, up, was his advice, saying you will wear a piano out early by playing it with the lid down, because the muffling will cause you to use more force to compensate), explained why it is okay to use a hot iron to treat the hammers (the shape and texture of the hammers are crucial to the tone), and went into the minutiae of the way temperature and humidity affect not just the stability of pianos, but also the nature of the sound they produce.
If you are serious enough about pianos to follow his advice, you will have a thermometer and hygrometer recording the factors affecting the inner life of your instrument, if not a machine to condition the air in your room so your piano can have the right atmosphere in which to sound its best. Ita€™s the mid-treble, the area where the right hand does most of its work, thata€™s crucial.
Of course, you would probably know a thing or two about pianos to make that mid-treble judgment call in the first place.
The festivala€™s recitals and masterclasses continue at the National Concert Hall until Friday. Festival omensThe news has been on the grapevine for the past few months that Donnacha Dennehy, one of the founders and currently co-artistic director of the Crash Ensemble, and artistic director of the 2006 RTA‰ Living Music Festival (the one that focused on Steve Reich), has been chosen as the artistic director of the 2014 New Music Dublin Festival.
One of the earliest messages that came from the first New Music Dublin Festival was that it wouldna€™t be repeating the style of the Living Music Festival, which had become an event with a single-composer focus. After Steve Reich, John Adams and Arvo PA¤rt, it looked like Philip Glass would be the only composer with the same level of name recognition, and it was hard to see how the festival could proceed on its chosen track after that.
The appointment of an artistic director for 2014 is an obvious solution to the mix of vested interests that held sway in 2013. The only hard information in the public arena about anything in the 2014 programme is that on Friday, March 7th, the RTA‰ NSO will give a lunchtime performance of Harrison Birtwistlea€™s Earth Dances under David Atherton, with Birtwistle in attendance a€“A the composer is due in Dublin as the keynote speaker for a Composition in the 21st Century conference organised by the Music Composition Centre at TCD (March 5-7th).
Ita€™s bizarre to have tied the hands of an incoming artistic director by programming a work that uses the most expensive performing group the festival will have at its disposal. And it seems like a bad omen, too, given the lack of focus there was in last Marcha€™s programme. The key, of course, will be the brief that Dennehy has been given in his new role, and the breadth of taste he will show in programming the work of mainstream European composers, who have been largely neglected in favour of Americans in his work with the Crash Ensemble. Ita€™s not a good omen either that none of this information is yet on the festival website. In fact, not even the 2014 festival dates are there (March 7-9th), though they are on the Music Composition Centre website.
